Set near the head of a beautiful valley in which nestles the town of Franschhoek. The hotel and apartments are styled in a neo-romantic style reminiscent of France. Our two bedroom apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable. A small shared swimming/plunge pool was near the apartment. A great place to stay and explore Franschhoek and the surrounding vineyards or just... More

We stayed in L'Ermitage for three days 27.12.-30.12.2014 with our friends. In total we were 5 people: 3 adults and two children. At first glance the accommodation looked great: spacious rooms, three terracces, kitchen, big baths, swinning pool. However, after first impression there was not much positive to say. First we noticed that one of the safety boxes didn't work... More

The situation and the accommodation are superb, but that is where it stops. Firstly we had to change rooms shortly after arrival because the air conditioning and the Television were not functioning. The second room had a functioning TV and we thought the air conditioning was working which proved not to be the case. However having moved once already we... More

Great location, great views and nice rooms but that's about it. There is clearly maintenance to be done, staff are generally unfriendly and unhelpful. The bar was out of stock of mineral water and a few others items. The bar itself was grubby and dirty glasses etc hadn't been removed and the bar was sticky and covered in water. The... More

Beautiful setting. We stayed in a villa with a view of lake. The villa is lovely and very spacious with kitchen and large king size bed. Open plan bathroom and bedroom with shower and large bath. This can be a magic place but it just lacks that extra edge. That extra touch on service and trying to assist customer requests... More

Stayed there recently and were upgraded to the Honeymoon Suite which was a nice touch. The rooms are absolutely beautiful on the surface level, however there are a few issues which need to be sorted considering the price they charge. 1) the airconditioning does not work in the honeymoon suite and it was blowing hot air. We asked for it... More

The only place in the world where the manager decides to suspend room service on demand. After placing my order I found out one hour later that "sorry there will be no room service the manager said. The kitchen stuff are attending to some function. " Have you ever been stuck in the bush with no food? Well try this... More

Great location - a little off the beaten track, with very beautiful surrounds. I stayed in villa 5. The rooms are enormous, with a kitchenette and a lounge. Some villas differ a bit though, mine had no tv in the bedroom which was missed. Also I feel the toilet/shower door should extend all the way up to the ceiling -... More

My boyfriend and I decided to take a spur of the moment trip to Franschhoek on a Friday afternoon. After driving through town we saw a sign for this hotel and drove in. Signage is unclear from the road. We drove passed the entrance to the estate. Driving from the estate signage is very clear. This is silly. We got... More
