This is a fantastic place, the room, the staff, the bathroom, the spa, the views coupled with the restaurant and the beautiful town of Franschhoek. On arrival we were greeted by the manager and taken on a complete tour of the house and villas. Next to our room was a beautiful lounge in which you could enjoy complimentary sherry. All... More

This was our first stop on our trip in SA and by far the best. The room was huge, the bathroom was out of this world, with a huge tub and shower, lovely products and heating in the floors. We loved the fireplace and the music CDs, made for wonderful evenings. The bed was a great size, very comfy, we... More

This is a fantastic place to stay. We had the two ground floor bedrooms of one of the villas for us and our 2 daughters, with a lovely sitting room between the bedrooms. The rooms were beautiful and there were lots of nice touches (fire lit in the sitting room each night, sherry before dinner). Staff were so helpful and... More

We were greeted by the manager who gave us a relaxed tour of the property, showed us the lounges ( with roaring fires in the fireplaces) and our suites. Absolutely charming rooms that are clean, well appointed, and updated while retaining the charm of an old perfumery (which is what this used to be). The gardens are stunning in the... More

Our tour company booked our family of 19 here for one night. Everybody wanted to just stay here! Suites are lovely, ambience is very appealing, and the way our family was assigned rooms was especially well-done. Breakfast was yummy and buffet was a beautiful spread. Dinner in their newly decorated dining room was excellent and at approx. $20 per person... More

We enjoyed our stay tremendously. Our villa was spacious and beautiful. We were sad to have stayed for only two days. We enjoyed dinner one evening in the wine cellar...What an unexpected treat! The food was delicious and the ambiance was like no other. We would love to go back someday soon and would definitely stay in Franschhoek Country Inn... More

We stayed here one night, and were upgraded to a room/suite. The rooms/suites are in individual small 'cottages'- very quaint. There was supposed to be free wifi, and we were given the password, but couldn't get it to work. The room was nice- queen size comfortable bed, good views, huge newly renovated bathroom (the shower did leak enough to flood... More

Every winter my wife a I look for a nice quiet place to spend a long weekend that is not to far from Cape Town and is close to good eateries, and must accommodate a small child. We always seem to land up in Franschhoek as it ticks all the boxes. This time we decided to spend a little more... More

I was treated to a weekend stay here for the Bastille weekend. Beautiful, luxurious hotel, we stayed in one of the villa suites which are very private and spacious. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

The Country House is set on the edge of town just off the main road. The courtyard has a central water fountain and great views of the surrounding mountains. The rooms are built around this central court yard. The rooms are quite elegant and tasteful. The entry way opens into a living room with a beautiful couch set in front... More
