There are many good hotels in Franschhoek, yet we think The Last Word can hold its own against all the competition –we consider it one of the best places to stay in the Franschhoek Valley.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
The Last Word is situated in a quiet location at the bottom of Franschhoek's main street, close to shops, art galleries, cafes and award-winning restaurants.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
This is a lovely intimate hotel. The inside is elegant and sophisticated with a mix of classic and contemporary furniture. All six of the rooms are extremely luxurious with spacious ensuite bathrooms. The four superior double rooms open onto private patio gardens, while the two suites have access to semi-private pools.
Outside, not only is there a small garden with a pool, but there is also a roof terrace with spectacular views of the mountains. Guests can relax here with sundowners, unwinding after a day spent exploring the area. This really is an extremely tranquil place.
The staff are particularly impressive – unobtrusive but friendly and always ready to help with restaurant bookings, local information etc. The breakfasts here are superb. Dinners and lunches are available by prior arrangement but this isn't necessary as there are so many good local restaurants to choose from. Some of the best restaurants in the country are here – in fact, there is a choice of over 30 different places to wine and dine!
