My fiancé and I spent our anniversary wine tasting in Franschhoek and were very pleasantly surprised by how warm and cozy the elegant Manor was, especially in light of the unplanned rain. We were given a free upgrade to the spacious Purple Room, which had a wonderful fireplace. There was a a shuttle to take us to our dinner reservations... More

We had a lovely 2 night stay here with our 2 teenaged daughters. We had the master and junior suites overlooking the lovely garden. The weather was chilly but the rooms were beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable with heated bathroom floors. The breakfast consisted of a cold buffet and eggs to order. They had no hot options for vegetarians like... More

Dear Mamta, it was a pleasure to having you and your family here after the other part of your family joined us before. Also thanks for your review as it gives me an opportunity to clarify something. I think you had in mind our breakfast manual for "strickt" vegetarians and not vegetarians! Most of our dishes (with eggs) fit the... More

We had a great time even though it was winter / raining. Our room had heated bathroom floors and a kitchenette. Breakfast was delicious and the coffee was solid! Wolfgang is a fantastic host. Hope to get back someday.

We spent 3 nights at the Franschhoek Manor hotel and found the hotel to be exceptional. We booked the master bedroom which was better than the photo's that we viewed online and the bathroom was amazing with deep bath, and huge shower, all newly renovated. The hotel decor is sublime and Christina and Wolfgang are amazing hosts. Nothing is too... More

We spent 4 days at Franschhoek Manor and were just amazed at the place. We actually stayed in the Master Bedroom that opened out onto the pool area. It was an exceptional suite. Wolfgang and Christina made us feel like lost friends, everything was thought of and nothing was too much trouble. We did the tram winery tour and a... More

Impeccably clean and a very comfortable 3 night stay. Attention to detail is fantastic, scrumptious breakfasts and friendly and welcoming staff and hosts. Recommend this Manor House to everyone. Will definitely be back next year May 2014.

We stayed in February taking two rooms and the cottage. What an excellent location away from the hustle and bustle of the village, but close enough. The complimentary evening shuttle to the restaurants worked well. The owners we very welcoming and made the perfect hosts. The cottage, if required, could be used as a fully equipped self acting unit if... More

We spent this time our stay with the family- two young men agend 17 and 21 . They enjoyed lying at the pool and having their own perfect appartment with a large bathroom with tub and shower.
