I am not the kind of person which likes to complain about everything. I surprised my 18 weeks pregnant wife with booking this night way from the rush in the City, for us to wake up in the beautiful countryside and there's no better place close to Cape Town than Franschhoek for this. The room was great, the quality of... More

We where shown to our room which was absolutely breathless. A large and detailed romantic cape Dutch style room with everything you could want. The following morning... More

Perfect position, excellent surroundings. Our bedroom was fantastic with very romantic bathroom. The underfloor heating made the stay perfect and very comfortable in winter. The linen was exceptional - perfect for a lazy weekend of rest.

We stayed in the manor house, and loved the thatch roof and especially the gorgeous bathtub with a view of the hills! The house itself is beautiful, and the staff was very welcoming. The location, just outside the town of Franschhoek, was convenient for visiting vineyards, and a short drive or taxi ride into the town center. We thoroughly enjoyed... More

Country luxury at its best - nothing too fancy -... More

Fantastic, really friendly and helpful staff. I must complement them on the extra effort. The owner even came to assist when we had lost our keys. That shows you a place that goes the extra mile. Thnks
