As an outside guest who just pitched up for breakfast I was very impressed. I was met at the door by the doorman and then again by the Hostess who showed us to the table. The fireplace was a great touch and very welcoming considering it was around 6 degrees outside. The buffet spread is just amazing with emphasis on... More

We stayed in a very average room. The hotel is quite old and so the rooms were not 'flash' at all. However, everything was spotlessly clean, the room was very warm (it was freezing in Franschoek!) and we had everything we could have asked for. However, whenever we asked anything of the staff - be it room service, bar service,... More

The last time we were at this venue but not this hotel - it was the Swiss Farm Excelsior - we were honeymooners. 20 years later we decided to treat ourselves - and a treat it was. Staff very friendly and enthusiastic. Food and ambience at fine dining restaurant was 5 star and breakfast was a treat. Would definitely recommend... More

We only spent 1 night at Le Franschhoek, could have done with a few more for sure. It was a very wet and cold weekend but our room was snug and warm with underfloor heating, a lovely big kingsize bed with all the goodies you would expect from a four star hotel. The fire in the reception area as well... More

Stayed there for 2 days and loved the food completely. The location is just superb while the rooms are very comfortable. The staff is very warm and always ready to help. Highly recommended to all my friends and family. The Executive Chef Scott Shepherd knows his business very well and is on top of it.

We stayed at Le Franschhoek for business and I was blown away at the level of service and accommodation. When I went to my room there was some jazz playing which created a really nice vibe. The rooms were fantastic and a nice touch was the coffee machines and pods which was delicious. Great stay.

The outside patio, gardens and pool are gorgeous and all surrounded by mountains and huge trees. Pity about removing so many couches from the outside patio and replacing it with tables and chairs.
