Excellent location just off the main street yet it's so quiet. Accommodation was clean, very comfortable and they were so nice and helpful. The only downside is that my wife now has more ideas to refurbish our bathroom at home! Would happily stay there again though .Richard and Alison

We had a great weekend away at the cozy Gingerbed cottage, situated just off the main road, in the middle of all the fun, yet still quiet and tranquil.The place is well kept and clean and Sue was a great host. We will most definitely be back!

Well-equipped cottage, clean, very private and cosy.We enjoyed our stay there and can recommend it to a couple visiting Franschhoek. The cottage is close to all the restaurants, the market, church, craft shops, etc. The reason four 4 stars and not 5 stars is that there was no secure off-street parking for our vehicle.

Gingerbed Cottage is a delightful, bright and airy cottage with its own entrance and front garden. It has a lovely personal touch with Sue's ceramics on the wall and for use in the kitchenette, rusks and plunger coffee.  Located one street back from the main street with all the restaurants and shops was ideal. The monthly market is a must! We will definitely be back and have recommended it to friends in SA and Australia.

My husband and I had a lovely stay in Franschhoek this weekend. Gingerbed Cottage is comfortable and quiet, and Sue provided delicious plunger coffee and home-made rusks. Amazing value for money! We will definitely visit again.
