Underfloor heating n the bathroom a nice additional feature - amazing... More

Thanks to Stefan and staff for a memorable wedding last weekend. All the boxes can be ticked five star. Your accommodation is outstanding, wonderful staff and the food delicious. We enjoyed the relaxed country feel of the guest farm. It is an ideal venue for functions in all kinds of weather with options indoor or out. A&F

We just came back from a 3 night stay at La Petite Dauphine, and it was fantastic in every aspect. My wife and I had just finished a week trip in Malawi, so we felt like royalty when we first stepped into our suite. We love the vintage rural look so the decor was perfect for us, plus being in...

We visited for 3 nights to attend a friend's wedding. Exceeded our expectations at every stage. Lovely people, wonderful service, amazing rooms. The wedding itself was held on a lawn by a pond with a view of the surrounding mountains - picture postcard beauty. The reception held at Cafe BonBon (the restaurant at the same venue) was fantastic with amazing... More

After visiting 12 months ago for a meal, we had decided that if we return to Franschhoek again, this is where we would stay. We had room 4. It is beautifully appointed with a large bedroom with king size double bed and a separate sitting room next door. En-suite bathroom is spacious and well appointed, with both shower and bath....

This place is wonderful! I was actually reluctant to write a review purely because I didn't want anyone to know about this place, but then I thought if someone knew about somewhere so utterly beautiful I would want to know about it!! The 'bungalows' were out of is world, the staff could not do enough to help. This is the... More

As other reviewers have noted the executive suite (no. 8) is superlative. We arrived late afternoon and left lunch time the next day and it wasn't enough. Really two nights minimum is required to fully unwind and appreciate the property and its surroundings. (We also looked at rooms 1-6 and they are also all great and would suite a self... More

We stayed in the best room available, and what a treat it was. The room is the best we have ever encountered and extremely luxurious. There are views of the mountains, a private pool, fireplace, nespresso machine and a huge and stunning bathroom and lounge. Just the best ever. The breakfast at Cafe Bon Bon is excellent, with cold and... More
