Stayed one night here upon my arrival in South Africa. Beautiful location and the rooms were fabulous. Though I Had a standard room it was separate bedroom from living room and a gigantic bathroom. The grounds and pool area were lovely. Had dinner and breakfast there and both were very good. I would stay there again!

I had a lovely one-night stay at this hotel over the weekend, and it comes very close to an "excellent" vote. However, not quite. For one, the location means you cannot simply stroll to the centre of Franschhoek to visit the shops, cafes and restaurants. You have to either walk for quite a while, or drive and find parking, or... More

This classic boutique hotel is nestled in the Franschoek valley surrounded by wine farms. The grounds are delightful, peaceful and create an atmosphere of old English charm. The service is excellent, the staff friendly and helpful and having breakfast looking out on the mountains surrounding Franschoek is the perfect way to start the day.

Franschhoek Country House complements the surrounding wine country with picturesque grounds that create a serene, peaceful experience. The villas feature a rather large bedroom, along with a separate large bathroom and living area. If you like to enjoy making the most of a hotel experience, this is for you. Franschhoek Country House offers a small, but heated pool, lush grounds,... More

A mix of modern and classic boutique hotel surrounded by a delightful wine estate. The restaurant on the premises has a very high quality. The rooms are tastefully decorated with luxurious items from bed linen to bath products. The environment is quiet and unbelievably relaxing with a fabulous koi pond in the middle. Don't make the mistake of staying only... More

Beautiful classic boutique hotel within walking distance of the heart of Franschhoek. Amazing restaurant adjacent and a breakfast to write home about. Large spacious villa room with a upstairs lounge area. We loved it.

We, a group of 6, were booked in 3 luxury rooms for 2 nights! What a fantastic place! Felt like we were in the grounds of a village! The rooms were massive, with an entrance way, and large lounge area, with doors to a patio, the bedroom was huge with a large and very comfy bed and the bathroom, well... More

We stayed for 3 nights in one of the villas. Absolutely stunning, a fire place in the room with a balcony - an enormous king size bed with luxurious linen, large bathroom. The setting amongst trees and vineyards just breathtaking. The location is also excellent, less than 1km from the town and so close to many of the wine estates... More

Picturesque hotel and grounds. Friendly staff, great complimentary shuttle service within local area. Only negative was that our rooms were very close to busy main road and above the kitchen and restaurant - so not as restful as we anticipated!

Stayed for 2 nights (during a roadtrip through SA for 5 weeks). Had dinner at The Tasting Room and Rust & Vrede (Stellenbosch). Both highly recommendable. We stayed in a villa. Everything was huge en luxurious. Huge living, huge bedroom, huge bathroom, huge balcony, breathtaking views. Reception staff was very friendly and helpful whenever we asked for it. We were... More
