"Enjoyed our stay, hope to be back sometime.
"No drinking water in the bedroom, pillow very uncomfortable, liquid soap instead of a bar soap, no toothpaste. The TV is just in the bedroom to tick a box, not in a proper position. "
"Very nice place for an overnight stay "
"Checking in was effortless. They were very accommodating by allowing us to drop our car and bags before hopping onto the wine tram. "
"A pleasant stay in an elegant room. Comfortable beds with crisp white sheets and a nice sized clean bathroom. Walking distance to a host of excellent restaurants. The outside rooms are on a well traveled road. Breakfast was simple but good.
"The Loft Suite was beautifully decorated and had a stunning and romantic bathroom. The breakfast was well presented and delicious. My only complaint perhaps was that the kettle had to be moved to be able to plug it in, perhaps a change of the coffee facilities location will sort it out. The specific..."more
"This was a most enjoyable and excellent experience. The accommodation was first class - we had a suite and our daughter had a 'cottage' near the pool. Le Ballon Rouge is in excellent condition and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely return. Franschhoek is a wonderful pla..."more

"We spent a wonderful 3 nights at Le Ballon Rouge. Jenny & David were excellent hosts and made our stay most enjoyable. The guest house is beautiful, well situated and stylish. Our only disappointment was the fact that there was no working restaurant to serve evening meals/lunches which is a great p..."more
"The Guest House is more like a small upmarket hotel. It is in a great position just of the main street on the Town close to cafes and lots of great places to eat. We stayed in an upstairs deluxe room which was very good and had air con, which was needed. The Ballon Rouge has a small pool and 6 - 8 s..."more
"This small lodge was absolutely lovely. Our room was decorated very nicely and had a beautiful marble bath. There were two sunny patios, one with a pool. The service was friendly and responsive. The neighborhood was fantastic with excellent restaurants, art gallaries and up scale botiques within..."more

"Beautiful old world charm in a very central location. Arrived and had a warm greeting from the manager before being shown to our booked room which was one of the lower priced ones, not disappointed in the slightest! It opened out to the covered stoep with its own little table and chairs to sit on. ..."more
"From the moment you walk into the reception, everything is authentic. The receptionist, the reading area, the paintings on the walls, the room itself, up to the friendly and warm fireplace atmosphere at breakfast!
A recommendation to everyone visiting Franschhoek!"
"We had a reservation for three nights but needed another at the last minute. We called Le Ballon Rouge and were told a room was available, although not the one we had reserved so we agreed to have it. After one night the staff moved everything for us into a larger room. Both rooms were top class. Th..."more
"My stay at Le Ballon Rouge was delightful.It was within walking distance to all the venues and I felt very much a part of village life.The staff were warm but unobtrusive and the twin room more than adequate. The linen was of a high quality and I enjoyed a good night's rest. A guest joined me for br..."more
"We stayed in Le Ballon Rouge for two nights in May. The guesthouse was truly superb, the exterior was in fitting with the normal Franschhoek buildings, the interior was wonderfully decorated with a modern contempory feel, as you would find with a high end 5 star hotel. All modern amenities were fa..."more
"A nice, quiet place with friendly atmosphere and nice service. I recommend staying here."
"Excellent service and facilities. Management was friendly and very helpful. "
"Le Ballon Rouge is a charming little gem in the middle of town. Which means you can walk or drive anywhere within minutes. Lovely rooms clean and neat with a decadent bath tub, and an inviting pool area where you can soak off the wine tasting of the day!
If you want to be central, definite..."
"We were very impressed with the room and the breakfast was first rate. I would definitely recommend this B&B."
"We spent 3 nights Le Ballon Rouge - the owners were friendly enough but unobtrusive. The room was large and comfortable, the pool area was nice but never seemed to be in direct sunlight. Great location in Franschhoek and the breakfast was fine. Not stunning but certainly better than satisfactory, wo..."more
"The establishment has style, is located very conveniently, and the staff is very helpful."
"Our room and bathroom were of a very high standard. The staff were very polite and helpful. A very convenient place to stay for a Franschhoek visit. The only disappointment being the restaurant was closed."
"Initial booked standard room was disappointing and opened almost directly onto road. However on request,were moved to one of the two superior rooms on first floor.
This was very spacious,comfortable and well fitted out.Level of service --- cleaning room and at breakfast --- was not very goo..."
"We had a lovely room in quiet surroundings. Very close to the main street where most of the restaurants were. The owners were very helpful & arranged dinner reservations for us. Bookings for these good restaurants were essential as there seemed to be great demand but the owners obviously knew the lo..."more
"Nice guest house. Very good quality for the price.
Nice room with terrace in front.
"I booked your establishment for my daughter and son in law who where visiting us from U. S. A. and they where most impressed with their stay with you. I run a self catering accommodation in Cape Town myself and if you would like to send me some leaflets I would put them in the apartment as people ar..."more
"Le Ballon Rouge is located in central Franschhoek and is quite easy to find. The cleanliness and courtesy of the staff is above average and all in all this was a pleasant stay. After staying in many South African guest houses we found that Le Ballon Rouge lacked a few of the 'little touches' which w..."more
"Just fantastic. The aspect, location and ambiance are fabulous, relaxing and tranquil. Breakfast is a feast and the host and staff friendly. Parking great, as is access to town, restaurants, shops, and post-office a breeze.
Le Ballon Rouge is a definite rose, in one of South Africa’s m..."
"We spent a wonderful night there in March. The accomodations were comfortabe and very attractive.
I loved sitting out on the porch with a glass or wine.
The owner was very helpful and the breakfast was most delicious.
I would love to come back again.
"Quiet room, one block from main street. Nice view of the mountains. Very helpful staff."
