Charming wineyard accommodation

Posted Jan 29, 2015
Charming Accommodation in the old Manor House of this operational wine producer. Good restaurant and wine tasting next door but you need to drive into Franschoek for dinner since everything closes at night fall. Took us a while to find the place since our GPS decided the place was 5 km from it's actual position. Go figure!

A lovely place to stay

Amazing country house with an equally as amazing breakfast! Only thing to be aware of is its 3-4km out of the town and the kitchen closes at 4pm, so don't get too carried away with those wine tastings! There are no taxis in town but there are certain restaurants that offer a pick up and drop off service and Rickety Bridge provide this info in the rooms

Ideal winelands base

Posted Aug 27, 2013
Pros: Character, location, setting, service.
Cons: Room decor needs updating....particularly the bathrooms.
Location: Wine tasting, wine tasting and wine tasting. The town of Franschoek is delightful with lots of lovely eating places and shopping.
The hotel was in a lovely location on the edge of Franschoek in a picturesque setting. Adjacent tasting rooms and restaurant also excellent. We had a two night stay in the impressive manor house in a lovely characterful room. However, the weather had been quite wet and there was a residual damp smell from the thatch roofing a the rooms are in the roof space. We found it easy to walk into the township for a lovely Sunday afternoon stroll....safe and straightforward walk. The hotel staff were wonderful and their efforts in booking restaurants etc were much appreciated....especially those restaurants that offers a collection and drop off service after a day of wine tasting. The hotel was lovely, but the rooms are looking a little tis and could do with some improving if they are going to maintain a 4 star rating.

Extremely good

Pros: Everything, it's your own house.
Location: Perfect location, just 3 minutes out of the town.
Rickety bridge is not a hotel, it is an old victorian house with 3 rooms only, there is no reception. But this is one of the best places we've ever stayed in. It is a beautiful house, the room is just amazing, super clean, super friendly people. You have your own winery and vineyards right there. Breakfast is really good. And if you stay here, the winery doesn't charge you for the wine tasting, only for the cheese platter which is about 50 R.

Tolles Guesthouse mitten in den Weinfeldern

Posted Dec 29, 2014
Das B&B gehört zu einem der größeren Wine Estates in Franschhoeck. Die Lage ist wirklich traumhaft, das Gebäude ist sehr liebevoll restauriert und absolut sauber. Das Zimmer war ebenfalls sehr stilvoll. Leider waren wir nur eine Nacht dort, das nächste mal bleiben wir länger!
