We stayed in a luxury room for two nights and I have to say we expected more considering what we paid. The welcome that we had was lovely - we were shown around and offered some wine (it is an all inclusive hotel). However, it went a bit downhill after that. The first room that we stayed in smelled of... More

Fantastic service. We were welcomed upon arrival, shown around, offered a glass of wine, they had already booked restaurant for us (just in case) for the evening. Room was beautiful and felt like a French country house. The whole decor in the hotel was bright and inviting. Service at breakfast friendly and were happy to cater for gluten free diet.... More

We really enjoyed our time here. The rooms were large and airy and the staff very nice. The best part was the location of the hotel, very close to all the wineries and you can walk to all the restaurants down the street very easily.

Welcomed very warmly by Franklin (?), we were led into a beautifully appointed and finished area for the check-in process which was efficient, pleasant and friendly. He had even booked us in at the local bistro before arrival to ensure that we ate well that evening A traditional building, the interior is finished in very pale grey with high gloss... More

I booked this small hotel for my sister-in-law and her husband as a gift for their honeymoon. I communicated with Steve via e-mail and I just knew immediately that they were in good hands by his professional communication. Attention to detail was highlighted: They went out for the evening and when they returned they found their room had some additional... More

My partner and I stayed 3 nights at this idyllic hotel in April 2015. It was our first time in Franschhoek and this hotel is in a fantastic location. Set back from the main street and behind a secure gate. However, the town is perfectly safe so don't let the mention of a gate put you off visiting this beautiful... More

My husband and I stayed 1 night with our S. African friends in order to visit the surrounding wineries. We came from staying 3 nights at The Last Word in Cape Town. We gave the Cape Town Last Word 10 out of 10. I would give this one 8 out of 10. It has the same small feel and lots... More

This hotel, set behind a secure gate on the main street of Franschhoek is a welcome respite from the bustling center of town. In a small town "bustling" is a relative term, but on the weekend when we were there is was certainly that. The rooms all have some small outdoor terrace and both the bedroom and bath are spacious,... More

We stayed in one of the villas recently which was very spacious and had its own small pool and lounge area. The room was large with a second sitting room and the bathroom also very good size. The property has a very old world charm and the host is very professional and courteous. He even went so far as to... More
