We've stayed at some lovely hotels in our time but this has to be the stand out. The villas are just GORGEOUS, and the grounds are stunning. Everywhere you look it's so picturesque and beautiful. We enjoyed dinner at Monneaux too. Wished we could've stayed longer. All the staff were fabulous too :)

We had a lovely stay here. The staff were helpful and friendly. We were upgraded to a villa, it was very spacious with everything that you need. Breakfast had a great variety of food. The views from here and the buildings themselves were stunning. The fruit in the room, lovely lavender bath products, wifi that actually works, and a comfy... More

Following rave reviews on Tripavisor we chose this hotel for my wife's birthday. Although it's very nice we were slightly disappointed. It was probably larger than we expected and thus slightly more impersonal. To give them their due, we requested a room away from the road and they gave us that. The room itself was very nice although slightly worn,... More

I've just spent three days at this hotel hosting a business conference for my management team. We conferenced here previously a few years ago and were very happy to return. The room and suites are large, homely, comfortable and luxuriously appointed. The setting is spacious and quiet and the mountain views are lovely. The hotel is situated a short distance... More

We only had two nights in the hotel but we rated it very, very highly. The attractive grounds looking out to the impressive bowl of the mountains surrounding the Franschhoek area provided a lovely, peaceful setting for a relaxing afternoon by the pools. Our superior room was impressively spacious with a very comfortable giant size bed. Breakfasts were absolutely brilliant,... More

Arrived here later than planned after driving from Cape Point - the drive was beautiful so definitely try to do it while it's still light. Lovely grounds and charming hotel, possibly a half hour walk along the main road into the centre of Franschhoek where the main restaurants are - though we didn't walk there. Room had beautiful decor, though... More

We had booked a superior room and arrived to find we had been upgraded to a superior suit, the floor area of which was only marginally smaller than a house. The attention to detail was impeccable as was the service; ever present and exceptional without being obsequious. The food was very good without quite being as exceptional as some of... More

Overall wonderful 2 nights. Kids (6&7) were very welcome - they were thrilled that one of the 2 outdoor pools was heated so they spent a good couple of hours playing in the afternoon which allowed us to plan our route & wine tasting:0) We ended up eating at the hotels restaurant since we didn't feel like driving anymore. Monneaux... More

The staffs at this property know service that is understated yet quite attentive. The restaurant food and service are exceptional. After my 2-hour spa treatment my wife and I shared a light lunch that included a sweet potato tart. The tart pastry was as good or better than any Parisian we have had. Turn-down service was stealth. I could go... More
