"We are a young couple travelling in South Africa for a friends wedding. We saved Franschoek for the last couple of nights of our Garden Route trip, and that turned out to be an excellent decision. Lavande de Franschoek has recently been extended. We stayed in the honeymoon suite (as the cost was so ..."more
"The Lavender farm is about 1/2 a mile from the high street. A lovely, quite spot. We were greeted by Don, who has a great working knowledge of the area. His recommendation of where to eat was in keeping with the advice we had received previously, and he very kindly made the reservation for us at sho..."more
"I spent 2 days at La Lavande de Franschhoek Guest House at the beginning of the year and thoroughly enjoyed my stay as it is a lovely guest house, in breathtaking surroundings. The breakfasts were delicious, especially the omelettes, the staff charming, and the rooms beautiful.

"What a pleasure to arrive at this guest house with a beautiful view and surrounded by shade giving trees. A place to sit in the spring sunshine and listen to the birds and watch the little red tailed ones hopping about and feeding in the grass.
The accommodation 'green room' was extremely c..."
"Choosing accommodation in Franschhoek whilst sitting at my computer in Sydney Australia, I felt moments of apprehension. This disappeared immediately when we met Don Newton, the Manager of Lavande de Franschhoek Guest House. As we walked into the sitting room and dining room, it was evident we had..."more
"Lavande de Franschhoek Guest House and Estate is wonderfully appointed on a small farm just a kilometre from the monument - affording proximity to town, but with a more private and remote sense of place.
Engaging and caring staff make for a pleasant stay.
Definitely worth a visit. ..."
Stayed there for a wedding, so booked purely based on price as we weren't spending time there.
I was very impressed, warm, friendly and great facilities that you would usually get at 50% more anywhere else in Franschhoek.
Breakfast was great and the bath w..."
"Nice place to stay - very quiet and close to all facilities by car. Little 'lavender' garden next to our spacious room and terrace. The bathroom is big with bath and shower - all the products smell lavender. Nice breakfast."

We were not disappointed with our choice of Lavender farm. Accommodation was very good and secure and the setting - looking out across a fie..."more
"We stayed for 2 nights which was a very enjoyable stay. The room was bright, spacey and good to stay in during some hours as we had rain during our time at Franschhoek. The Manager (Don) was very friendly and helpful and the service was very good as well. The only negative point was really the weath..."more
"This guest house was really beautiful. Great room and a perfect place the visit some wine houses for tasting."
"We booked a night at Lavender Farm (Lavande de Franschhoek) as we were attending a wedding in the area. We didn't have all that much time to enjoy the comforts that our room offered but we did experience Don's very personable and hands-on management of his guest house. He helped some Dutch guests pl..."more
"We were warmly welcomed by the Manager who told us all the necessary details regarding our stay, as well as some information we felt was redundant.
The rooms were pleasant and clean with luxurious bath towels. I was accommodated in a room usually designated for the child and my two daughters e..."
"As tired and hurried city slickers from Cape Town, my wife and I decided to book for ourselves a weekend break away in Franschhoek, as it was always something on our agenda. Not knowing where to stay, we resorted to an internet search through RoomsForAfrica, and were guided to Lavende de Franschhoek..."more

The service was friendly & the rooms are pretty & clean. Breakfast was nice but not outstanding- would be nice if there was farm style bread & fresh squee..."
"Our room was extremely comfortable. The location of the Lavande de Franschhoek Guest House & Estate is sublime - wonderful views. Don, the manager, was very accommodating - booking the French Connection restaurant for us as we arrived late on Thursday. I would recommend staying at Lavande de Fransch..."more
"Lovely surroundings in a beautiful valley. Pleasant helpful staff. TV channels limited e.g. golf or news and the wind up the valley whistles and rattles the doors and windows. Don is a splendid host with detailed advice on the area."
"Our stay at Lavande de Franschhoek was great. Don, the owner, was very helpful with booking restaurants, transfers, etc. Our room was lovely, and I'd most likely rate the establishment as a 5 star if the Lavander field was in bloom. "

"Great stay! Lovely cosy rooms and fantastic hospitality! The room was exceptionally clean and it was great to have air con and an electric winter blanket during the cold months. TV was a bit small - but not such an issue as there was plenty to do in Franschhoek in terms of wine routes and restaura..."more
"Lovely ambience and room. Breakfast very good in relaxed and stylish breakfast/lounge room. Didn't appreciate though that a smoker had preceded us."
"Lavande de Franschhoek exceeded our expectations, particularly with regard to the beautiful accommodation. We were surprised to find that the house was entirely ours for the night. As we sat sipping wine on the extensive porch/verandah we felt like royalty! Our only regret was that we had not booked..."more
"Although the accommodation is beautifully located within the mountain and lavender fields, it has a beautiful swimming pool and a very delicious breakfast is offered, the guesthouse misses a little bit of character. It is a pity that the owners are living in Durban and the personal touch is missing...."more

"Beautiful position and surroundings. Lovely rooms and breakfast and pool area. "
"Magnificent location just outside Franschhoek, you need a car here to get out and about visiting the many vineyards. We had the pool area to ourselves most of the time. Furnishings and fittings to a high standard as was the breakfast."
"A very attractive tranquil establishment. I would have liked a little more attention to detail ie sound on the TV not working and no one to call. Other than that a pleasant stay."
"The room was very nice and big, great view of the garden. Breakfast was very good and the frontlines were very friendly, the back office was less friendly.
"The rooms are superb and have a great bath and shower. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast served by a very nice lady, in the beautiful dining room located in the centre of the building. The house nestles in its own grounds and is very peaceful, with wonderful scent from the lavender field. Franschhoek i..."more

"The rooms were very attractively decorated, including the prints on the walls.
I also liked the idea that the bath was a feature - an inclusion of the bedroom and that lavender products were available to be used. I enjoyed my bath and felt very relaxed.
Breakfast was excellent too in a dinin..."
