Amazing pool suite!

Our pool suite was huge, unfortunately it was too cold to make use of the small private pool. The hotel is set back from the main road but an easy stroll to all shops and some restaurants. The suite was clean and the bed huge and very comfortable. The communal areas were spotless and there is a nice roof top terrace to enjoy the beautiful mountain views. All drinks were free from the communal bar area in the main lounge.

Staff were very attentive and helpful and if you are planning on doing the very fine restaurants and wineries; this hotel would be ideal.

Breakfast offer was good and the cooked menu offer quite fancy.

Short but lovely stay

Loved the heated bathroom floors & welcome champagne in room & wine upon check-in! Also can't beat a hotel with an open bar & hot breakfast! Conveniently located right in the center of town & walkable to everything & service was excellent.

The Last Word Franschhoek review

Absolutely stunning place. Lovely place. It's a bit close to it's neighbours but overall it's a great place to stay.

You do get away from everything there and the level of comfort well...... You can walk out to most restaurants. They will book whatever you want to do.

Would definitely recommend this as the place to stay.

Thought this was an excellent place to stay, with free alcohol and faculties to use (swimming pool). The decor and general maintenance was of a high standard.

Convenient but not a great location

Our stay at The Last Word was pleasant, it's location in the centre of Franschoek is close to the local restaurants, shops and galleries. Unfortunately the convenience of the location means that there is quite a lot of noise (and at certain times, cooking smells from neighbouring establishments!) and although our room was a Pool Suite, sitting by the pool was not a relaxing experience.

The public areas of the hotel are all very smart and well decorated but unfortunately we found the overall atmosphere of the hotel quite claustraphobic!

The Last Word Franschhoek review

We were really spoilt here - a luxury room, with our own swimming pool, and turn-down treats, accompanied by the sound of falling acorns bouncing off the tin roof and sploshing into the pool! The breakfasts were particularly wonderful.

Although Franschhoek is a busy little town, the hotel's location was very peaceful - and handy for the charming pizza restaurant next door! A perfect base for walking into the town, and for exploring the many local wineries.

Room 1 has its own patio!

Perfect for exploring the the tourist traps of the Franchhoek vinyards.

Another super little hotel where the staff couldn't do enough for you - even sent out for craft beer when I said I couldn't face another ghastly lager!

Be warned - book well in advance for the best restaurants! Eat at Foliage - undoubtedly the best food we ate in 3 weeks, and there was some stiff competition.
