Even allowing for the weather our visit was exceptional and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The rooms were splendidly furnished throughout and the location perfect. Everyone was so amazing during our stay including lots of anniversary extras supplied which made our visit perfect. Would highly recommend it to anyone.

We had a wonderful time at this hotel which is in a beautiful garden setting - very tranquil. Great room with a fireplace which is a great addition, especially in the wintertime. Very pleasant hotel staff who were very responsive to requests. I'd return in a heartbeat.

My husband took me here for a 2 day get away for some r&r. The suite was beautiful! Fireplace, music in all rooms, amazing bed and an awesome surprise of a hot water bottle in our beds when we got back to our rooms! The restaurant and tasting menu were out of this world! The staff were extremely helpful and... More

We spent two nights at FCH&V and it was perfect. It's a great location, not in the middle of the town, but a little on the edge so it's easy to get to some great wine farms without congestion. While the room was a little cold, they had hot water bottles in our bed each night which really helped. The... More

Loved this property. Fire blazing in our room on a chilly July evening, views to the mountains from the bedroom, acres of space, heated floors, luxury decor, friendly staff and a minute's drive from the village.

This was disappointing. Reception staff were not friendly when we checked in ( to business like) booked the restaurant on the 1st night but we were not advised that we were the only people using the restaurant and it therefore lacked ambiance. Bedroom was very cold as we were not advised on the heating arrangements we also ran out of... More

Dear reviewer, our sincere apology if your experience was not as expected or to our usual high standards. We would have certainly attended to any item reported during your stay but nevertheless regret it was not all perfect. The management did send bubbly to your room on arrival but it appears we could have done more to acknowledge your honeymoon,... More

My wife and I recently stayed over at FCH. From the moment we arrived until we left we were extremely impressed by the service, the attention to detail and the general ambience. The spa treatments were probably the best I have ever experienced and the dinner at Monneaux restaurant was excellent. Recommended without reservation, will definitely visit again.

Very central location on the main room, only minutes away from great restaurants, the town and close to lots of wine estates. Comfortable and warm rooms with fireplace and underfloor heating. You do need a vehicle to get around but the hotel does organize shuttles to all the restaurants as well. Breakfast is adequate but we preferred to eat at... More

We stayed for 2 nights at the end of a busy trip taking in Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia and Cape Town. It was just what we needed! Peaceful, beautiful grounds & surrounding scenery, lovely food & wine. The hotel buildings are pretty & well kept as was our room. The breakfast room is bright and airy and breakfast is excellent.

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!
