To whom it may concern
This is a gem of a place situated in the centre of town. The decor is beautiful and extremely neat and tidy. The hospitality fantastic and the owners very friendly and helpful. I will recommend anyone to stay here as we only stayed over for one evening and I felt as if I had been on holiday.
Breakfast of outstanding quality and presentation and setting under the trees was very smartly done. Regards Truda Schlechter

I WOULD LIKE TO COMPLIMENT JACO AND ELSA NAUDE ON A MAGNIFICENT GUESTHOUSE! THE WARM, FRIENDLY AND NEAT HOUSE MADE US FEEL LIKE HOME. THE DELICIOUS BREAKFAST WAS ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL PRESENTED.
WE WILL DEFINATELY STAY AT CENTRE-VILLE AGAIN AND WILL REFER ANY GUEST TO VISIT THIS STUNNING AFORDABLE GUESTHOUSE.

We stayed for 3 nights during June. Our second visit to Centre Ville.
Very cosy and super well located.
DO NOT book a downstairs room. The upstairs floors are made of wood. During our last visit we stayed upstairs and all was fine. This time we were downstairs and could hear our upstairs neighbour pace up and down the whole night. Every time he moved we were woken up.
Also the hosts decided to entertain guests on our last night there up until the point where I had to go ask them to please keep quiet at 10pm. Not very considerate.

We enjoyed our stay. We were upgraded to honeymoon suite. The room has a private deck and views of the mountains. The portable aircon kept the room cool. The full bathroom included a spa bath and complete with soft bath robes. Breakfast was big and great variety to choose from. Parking is acrosse the road in open area. There is lighting at night and local security roam the area.

We stayed in "Abundant Room" for 2 nights during our SA journey and in the retrospective we can say it was one of the best places we have been. Wonderful breakfast, very nice hosts! Due to its centre location in the middle of Franschhoek its in walking distance to the restaurants on the main street - and Franschhoek is a wonderful place to stay at. Centre Ville is definitively high recommended!

We stayed for four nights. Apart from the clean rooms and the perfect breakfast it is Elsa and Jaco, who run the guest house, that make it a home away from home. Recommendation!

We had to add Franschhoek to our itinerary at the last minute and were looking for a place to stay for one night. The great thing about Centre-Ville is its convenience and we were able to move about quite easily. The room we stayed in was well-appointed though a bit on the small side. Elsa was helpful enough though nothing out of the ordinary - she seemed a little distracted by having so many guests to take care of. It is overall quite a decent place to stay.

We just want to say thank you again for the time we spend at your guest house. Elsa, you and your family are real ambassadors of South Africa. I would highly recommend your guest house.

The house is beautifully decorated and the hosts were fabulous, friendly and knew the area well. The places to eat are within walking distance from the house. We had a lovely stay in Franschhoek and will definitely go back there in summer.

We had the best nights sleep weve had in ages. Our hosts were very friendly and the breakfast superb. Would highly recommend Centre Villa for comfort and value for money.
We will be back!

We had a fantastic stay! Wow what superb hosts Jaco and Elsa were. Friendly and helpful, yet discrete and professional. We have stayed at many establishments in the area, and never had such value for money, and such luxury for the price. Spa bath, breakfast, champagne and wine for our wedding anniversary, luxury all round. Loved the rooms upstairs in the 'rafters'. Will see you again very soon! Thanks for such a special stay.

Needed an overnight place to attend a wedding in Franschoek.
Centre-Ville Guest House is situated in the heart of Franschhoek, within walking distance to all the shops and village restaurants. This Victorian beauty, built in 1905, has been fully renovated without losing its old world charm.
We offer eight tastefully decorated rooms, three on the ground floor and five rooms on the first floor with lovely mountains views.
Guests are invited to sit on the wide verandah and watch village life go by while enjoying a refreshing drink, or relax next to the sparkling pool on hot summer days. The communal sitting area with fireplace is a favorable gathering place to chat, read, or listen to music and we also have a piano for the musically talented.
