My wife and I spent a cold and wet weekend in Franschhoek a few weeks ago. As we had stayed at the Protea Hotel, Franschhoek on a few occasions in the past we decided to book in there again. Unfortunately standards appear to have slipped since we were last there. Besides the fact that their staff do not go out... More

We stayed here for an anniversary night away Jan 2014 and loved the fact that you can walk to have lunch coffee etc. Stayed during summer months so used the pool. The hotel itself is fine - average but the location is nice and central. Rooms are a bit tired. Breakfast average

This hotel is located in a lovely setting and our past experience when staying in Franschhoek led us to book here again. We found the hotel to be exactly as it was on the previous occasion - very welcoming and efficient staff, a comfortable room, decent breakfasts, and a pleasant bar/stoep area. This time we had in fact booked a... More

Stayed in room #5 and as per the comment(s) from other travelers; the filthy stained carpet issue is still not resolved. I doubt even if the room was vacuumed before I got it as there was plastic & crumbs on the floor. Luckily I only used this as a base to sleep and wore my flip-flops in the room not... More

Stayed here unexpectedly when our travel arrangements fell through. We were not sure about it but we could not find any alternatives. However there was nothing to worry about. This is a nice little hotel, not fancy but very clean and comfortable with a very nice pool area. Rooms and bathrooms are large and quite well equipped with bath and... More

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights while on a cycle tour in the Franschhoek area. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed and the staff friendly and helpful. But somehow it does not quite earn a 4th star - probably 3.5 stars! It was the small things that they got wrong - eg. not always a barman in... More

Stayed for a week as part of a group there for golf. Only ate in once and was unimpressed. Breakfasts were OK but no more. It is close to the centre so one can easily get to restaurants . The pool area is small ,the rooms are OK and so on and so on -just average.

We decided to have a last minute stay in Franschhoek and after all other accommodation was fully booked we had no choice but to stay here. We paid R1100 which is defiantly not worth it. The room is very average and you can see that the price is meant for tourists and not South-Africans. We asked them for a fridge... More
