Fodor's Review

Originally built as the home of a British missionary, this lovingly restored guesthouse also once served as a school. Now its rooms are decorated with rich fabrics and luxurious finishes. One has its own plunge pool, and others have generous fireplaces. On arrival, you're automatically booked in at highly rated Bouillabaisse, the sister seafood restaurant a five-minute stroll away, but you're welcome to eat anywhere in the food lovers' paradise that is Franschhoek.
