The Last Word Franschhoek is an exclusive 5* historic residence situated right in the heart of the gourmet village of Franschhoek. It is private and peaceful, yet only a minutes walk from the many award-winning restaurants and numerous character-filled boutique shops and galleries.

The surrounding valley is also the idyllic setting for walking trails, hiking, cycling, bird watching, horse-riding and fly-fishing.

Golfing enthusiasts are well catered for with several championship golf courses close by.

Six luxurious double rooms, each with their own traditional Cape charm, open onto private patios and small, shaded gardens.

All have marbled en-suite bathrooms, and air-conditioning and satellite TV.

Included in the rates are lavish breakfasts, free drinks, bespoke wines, premium spirits and an in-house chauffeur service is also available to guests.

Start TestimonialThe Last Word - as before this was a fabulous base to enjoy Franschhoek and the surrounding area. The service and quality of the rooms is amazing and we were lucky enough to get one of their pool suites which had been refurbished after the flood that had closed the place for 6 months. We would unreservedly recommend this place to anyone, it is a very special hotel.End Testimonial
