Franschhoek accommodations...advice needed..

Jump to last reply

Three of us are working with a travel agent in SA to plan a 3 week trip to Southern Africa this fall. We are planning 3 nights in the Winelands, in Franschhoek.

The agent initially suggested The Franschhoek but found no availability for our dates. She is now proposing Klein Genot. I am wondering if we would not be better off in a more central in-town location. TA will check Akademie Street Guesthouses, which I suggested after reading great reports on Trip Advisor, but if this small place has no free rooms, I am wondering about other upscale options, or if we should stick with Klein Genot which apparently has a shuttle into town. Should I be concerned about being "in town" and close to shops and restaurants? How far is it from Klein Genot into town and is there easy accessibility by taxi?

This will be our first trip to Southern Africa and we are planning this at what seems to be the "last minute" so any and all help and advice is especially welcomed. Thanks.
