Avondrood Guest House in Franschhoek

Avondrood Guest House is nestled amidst the beautiful mountains and vineyards of the Cape Winelands and conveniently located within walking distance of the village centre of Franschhoek, South Africa's renowned gourmet capital. Avondrood Guest House is a charming well-maintained Victorian Cape Dutch-style house built in 1870 that has been tastefully renovated, adding modern day comforts whilst retaining many features of the original building. There are 8 generous rooms, one of which is a new two bedroomed family suite, each with distinctive décor, creating a unique ambiance. We offer a new wine bar service, which is situated in our spacious lounge area. In addition, the premises are surrounded by a lush secluded 2,000 square meter garden with a private swimming pool and Jacuzzi. Rich in history as one of South Africa's oldest towns, todays Franschhoek is well known for its award-winning wines, restaurants and venues. With its friendly small village atmosphere, Franschhoek offers a number of delightful art and craft shops as well as the opportunity to visit the Huguenot Museum or the famous Franschhoek Motor Museum. Most of the surrounding vineyards offer wine tasting followed by lunch. The vineyards and the surrounding countryside can be explored by car, bicycle, horseback, or with the new wine tram hop-on-hop-off service.

We checked in here for a short stay and we weren't disappointed.The decor and standard of the main bar area and rooms were done tastefully and cleverly.We checked in and the weather was pretty cold and raining. The staff had heated the room and turned on the bathrooms underfloor heating. They had an open fire in the main seating/bar area.The team were so helpful and couldn't do more for us. They were extremely attentive and helped us choose restaurants, bars and wine tours.We would happily recommend Avondrood. Beautiful guest house with lovely staff.

Personal service and attention to detail. Nothing is too much trouble for Justin at Avondrood. Beautiful setting off the main road so not too loud. Pool was open and my husband found it very refreshing. Would love to stay here again and enjoy the Wine Tram experience and wonderful restaurants again.

Stayed two nights here everything about this place is excellent. Justin and his team go out of there way to make sure you are happy and have a relaxed stay. Even a thunder storm which knocked out the electricity didn't stop them from producing a spectacular breakfast. Would not hesitate to stay here again or recommend to a anyone else. Thanks to Justin everyone at Avondrood team,Franschhoek.
