Although this is a 5* hotel, the state of some of the rooms is shocking = carpets are old and dirty, showers flood the bathrooms, rooms are not checked before guests arrive. In one room the heating was left on, at the same time as the aircon. The guest couldn't sleep because she switched off the aircon as it made... More

The hotel is hidden in Franschhoek, and gives one a sense of peaceful and serenity. This is a good hotel and serves great breakfast. The hotel is well maintained. While breakfast is excellent, dining falls short and can be improved. Ample parking and a good spa complete the offerings. Highly recommended.

Rooms were clean, breakfast and dinner was nice, but this was definitely not a five star hotel, however staff was rude, and unaccommodating. At the price you're paying there allot of other place in Franschhoek I'd rather stay.

this hotel is approx 5min drive out of franschhoek in beautiful surrounds, the distance away actually helps it feel chilled and 'away from it all'. we had room 16 which was a standard room but loads of character with double height ceiling and thatched roof detail on the inside. it was large, peaceful. breakfast was good, service helpful but with...

We stayed here as the last point of our holiday, and having read the reviews too late to change our minds we weren't expecting a lot. We decided that if it was too awful we wouldn't ruin our holiday we'd check out, take the loss and check into something luxurious in Cape Town. When we saw the hotel we thought... More

We stayed here only for one night, took 3 rooms and did not dine in the restaurant. The rooms were large and comfortable, one of us stayed in a room under the thatch roof which had constant spiders and bugs dropping down from the ceiling, they were quick to move us into another room though. The hotel is beautiful and... More

Stunning hotel with incredible scenery. Our room was very spacious and the location just outside of town was not a problem. I note with interest the last review in respect of the staff. We found the majority of them to be friendly and helpful however I'm afraid there were a few who were quite surly, especially the pool guy who... More

The hotel is a beautifully decorated building set in impressive grounds so equally impressive views. The facilities are superb but the thing that makes the place is the staff who were always very friendly and had a great sense of humour which makes all the difference. It is worth noting that the hotel is not within walking distance of the... More

We stayed at Le Franschhoek for one night during our honeymoon. We informed the hotel of this beforehand and they made the thoughtful gesture of sending a small bottle of champagne and lovely fruit platter to our room in honour of this. We were expecting the hotel to be in the centre of Franschhoek, but its actually at least an... More
