9 of us spent 2 nights in 3 cottages. Snow on mountains, but stunning warm weather. I stayed in Pear Cottage overlooking the dam. Amazing views from the veranda of mountains reflected in the dam just meters away behind white picket fence covered with white roses. A photographer's paradise. Visits to nearby wine farms and getting together for meals in... More

My husband and I stayed a night at this amazing spot on the weekend of our first wedding anniversary. We are SO glad that this is the place we chose! The accommodation was simply stunning and the fantastic welcome we got really made a great two days because the owner told us about all the "hidden gem" wine tasting spots... More

Enjoyed our return trip very much. No farm noises this time and all else just as wonderful as last time. We will come back! It's a wonderful place close to excellent restaurants with friendly and helpful staff.

We stayed here for two nights in Milkwood Cottage at the beginning of March and had a wonderful time. The cottage has lots of character and is extremely comfortable. It is well equipped down to the smallest detail. The staff are outstanding and extremely helpful. Will definitely come back again.

Stayed here several times. A fantastic location, amazing views and great service. Cottages are well equipped and have recently added wifi. Bo lamotte is very good value, you'd be hard pressed to find a better self catering spot in the area. Highly recommended.

Stayed in Oak Cottage. Great for a couple. Quiet, beautiful setting. Attentive staff, love the place, and the dogs. Perhaps could have done with fan in the lounge (37C). And a feather pillow? So close to Franschoek, which is really convenient. The cottage is well equipped, with everything you need. A home away from home, in every respect.

Our fourth visit to Bo La Motte. We stayed at Oak Cottage again (ideal for a couple), but on previous visits with another couple we also had Milkwood and Goose cottages. All nice. The farm is about 1 km outside of Franschhoek, but we regularly walk into town and feel it is safe; we also went for early morning runs... More

Great value for money with excellent guest service tucked away on a fantastic vineyard with amazing views. Second time round & this will always be our second home away from Sweden. It had everything to offer for our family of 5 with the City Centre in walking distance so very convenient in having that glass of wine over lunch time.... More

We stayed at the Orchard Cottage for two days. Bo La Motte farm is only a ten minute walk from the heart of Franschhoek and the Huguenoten Monument and museum. The Orchard Cottage is a lovely renovated cottage on the edge of the domain, situated between the vineyard and the orchard. The house has all the necessary facilities but has... More

BoLa M, Owner at Bo La Motte Farm Cottages, responded to this review

Thanks for your review, we value all responses as its a great way to gain feedback on our farm and cottages. With regards to the WiFi in Orchard, we have recently installed a farm wide system for all cottages except Orchard which unfortunately fell out of the scope of this system being right at the bottom of the farm.

I am actually a bit reluctant to write this review, as this is such a hidden treasure, I wouldn't want it to become too well known! ;-) Stayed here for the second time now, in Goose cottage, after renting Goose and Milkwood last year with our family.
