The rooms are beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. We had views of the dam in front of us and the mountains in the background, it was stunning. There is everything you need and the staff are super helpful.. There is wifi and dstv and a swimming pool. Shops are nearby and of course the wine estates. Breakfast is a feast... More

We spend one night at L'ermiage and my palate was spoilt by the Chef of the day. The duck salad was unbelievable and the Vanilla creme brule.. was to die for. Highly recommended if you want a quite delicous meal.

Thorougly enjoyed my stay at this luxury resort. Tranquil and relaxing place to unwind. The apartments are spacious and beautifully decorated. The food at the resort is good but there are several other dining options as the resort is located close to the main street and several wine estates which offer excellent meals.

The suites are had were large with a full self catering kitchen and lounge. The first suite offered the fridge did not work and no hot water. The balcony was opposite the reception area and was spoilt by the noise of their AC units. We were moved to a much nicer location, ground floor by the lake with great views... More

We stayed one night in L'Ermitage and had a very mixed experience. The villa and surroundings were lovely and the staff very friendly but let themselves down when it came to attention to detail. There were a number of minor issues, such as not providing any towels (these were eventually delivered late at night once we'd left for dinner), our... More

This newish hotel has a great position, and is a beautiful place just outside Franschhoek town, with some elegance and high-end furniture and fixtures. But there is clearly no maintenance, not much training, inadequate management, and the place seems to be under-staffed (or was during our visit, in any case). The recent very positive reviews are actually a bit surprising.... More

Thank you for taking the time to give your us valued feedback. We unfortunately had a number of staff that didn't show up for work during the peak season which put a lot of pressure on the entire operation. Please accept our apologies where we fell short and we know that we will do better when next you visit our... More

Having requested a room with a view we were exceptionally pleased to be allocated a villa overlooking the dam and onwards to the mountains. The large covered terrace plus smaller patio off the bedroom were frequently used to take advantage of our great fortune. Considering that we had only been expecting a room in the main hotel, we were extremely... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed being spoilt in this great hotel with some really sweet helpful staff. The views over the mountains around Franschhoek are breathtaking - breakfast awesome and dinner pretty good. Our suite was large and very comfortable - a great place to relax

L'Ermitage is one of the most beautiful places to stay in Franschoek. The rooms are fantastic and the service is outstanding. As it is situated next to beautiful vineyards and only a short walk away from town, the location is one of the best in Franschoek. I could not recommend a few nights in these gorgeous villas more.
