The rooms are clean, comfortable a decent size with baths & separate large showers. Tea/Coffee making facilities in room along with a fridge. Night time... More

This hotel could almost be a motel but, it has a restaurant, a pool and some public rooms. Whilst not luxurious, the rooms are good, the staff very helpfull, and the location excellent. The breakfast staff were a little disorganised , they needed prompting to serve teas and coffees

An excellent location just at the entrance to Franschoek and with a superb car park, this hotel is a great, simple place to stay whilst sampling the attractions of Franschoek. Rooms set around a courtyard with a rather inviting pool in the middle. It's not flashy, just comfortable. The breakfasts are a little basic, the coffee quite bad, the bathrooms... More

We stayed here with friends to celebrate my birthday. On arrival there was a cake and wine in the room and the most beautiful card. The staff here are great and very helpful. The hotel itself is in a central position for walking into Franschoek. The rooms are spacious clean and there is a turn down service each night. The... More

This is one of the noisiest hotels that I have ever stayed in. The aircon in the room next door had a problem that made the bathroom wall shake every few minutes the whole night. The doors in the corridor make a lot of noise when being opened. On Saturday night we got very little sleep because there were guests... More

It's walking distance to the shops and restaurants made it a brilliant base to explore Franschhoek and all of the vineyards from. It was very clean and comfortable and the view of the mountain and pool from our room was lovely. The staff were very friendly and helpful. All in all a great stay.

Unlike some reviewers, I actually liked the courtyard style of this hotel and the fact it overlooked the pool. However I do agree that when you have children playing in the pool and screaming it can get a trifle annoying after a while! The pool is also not quite as large as the pictures on the website would have you... More

We stayed in Franschhoek for 2 nights, the first night at an independent Olive Farm just out of town and the second at the Protea. The bedroom and bathroom were spacious and had everything we required however we found the hotel very noisy partially due to how the rooms are laid out in a courtyard style around the pool. A...
