The Last Word Franschhoek

This intimate and stylish boutique hotel is perfectly located just minutes’ walk from Franschhoek’s village streets making this historic residence the perfect place for an authentic, luxurious Winelands experience.


Just minutes off the main road of the village in the Franschhoek Valley – you are in the heart of South Africa’s food and wine capital. So, naturally, you won’t struggle to find new and amazing places to dine every night. Of course, a private tour of the famous vineyards and wine cellars, topped off with a bit of tasting, is an absolute must. This is wine country after all.

Your room

Each of the six luxurious rooms is elegantly decorated with contemporary furnishings. The only thing missing is any sign of pretentiousness. Sink into the ultra-comfortable beds after a dinner at one of the recommended restaurants in town (we love Reuben’s – the seafood risotto really is the best around), or simply relax with a glass of the hotel’s own label wine in your private patio garden. Perfect.

Why we like it

You’ll be treated like royalty every time you step into The Last Word Franschhoek. That’s why we keep sending people there. The friendly faces here do everything to ensure your stay in the Winelands is the highlight of your experience.  They know the best wine estates, restaurants and boutique shops, so don’t be afraid to ask them for advice. They go out of their way to make sure you are content, whether it’s a bottle of bubbly pool-side or a relaxing full body massage in the spa. This is how a hotel should be run.
