Formerly a private homestead, The Last Word Franschhoek is an intimate haven in the heart of South Africa’s wine and culinary capital.
This luxury boutique guesthouse sits in the heart of Franschhoek village, within walking distance of some of South Africa's world class restaurants, including the Tasting Room, as well as wine estates, championship golf courses and shopping boutiques.
There are just ten rooms in total; eight Superior Double rooms, and two Pool Suites. All rooms are light and spacious, decorated in neutral tones, with private garden patios in which to relax with a glass of South Africa's finest vino. Pool Suites also boast a separate lounge area, and private swimming pool. The two Pool Suites can also be interconnected, and so are perfect for families.
Breakfast is included, and lunches and dinners are also available by prior arrangement, although with some of South Africa's premium restaurants located within walking distance, the temptation to dine out might prove irresistible. The buffet breakfast is served on the covered veranda that overlooks the pool. In room minibars are complimentary, along with all drinks in house (including wine and premium spirits).
The swimming pool is heated, and their wooden deck offers wonderful views of the Franschhoek Mountains. The Franschhoek valley surrounding the hotel is an idyllic location for trekking, cycling, bird watching, riding and fly-fishing, while golfing enthusiasts can enjoy several nearby championship golf courses. Franschhoek is, of course, also famous for its world-class wines and wine estates, many of which offer wine tasting and cellar tours.
The Last Word offer an in-house chauffeur service, for transfers and tours - perfect for pick up after an indulgent dinner - and the team are happy to arrange additional little touches, like spa treatments, and picnic baskets, to make their guests stay as personal, and memorable as possible.
