We stayed at the Marco Polo Lodge for three nights. We were up graded to the 2 bedroom suite as there was a wedding taking place while we were there.. The accommodation was enormous and had fabulous views over the Franschhoek valley and the swimming pool. The suite was well equipped for self catering but we didn't use it as... More

We stayed two nights at marco polo lodge, and were very sorry that we couldn't spend our whole trip there.The place is so beautiful, the rooms are clean and the service is excellent! It is quite far away from town, but that's no problem, because you don't want to leave the hotel.

We visited Franschhoek during the off season and were actually the only guests in the Marco Polo Lodge. The service was great, and the huge breakfast in the dining room was just wonderful. They suites were luxurious and the scenery of course was absolutely stunning, especially during sunset. We walked through the vineyards and enjoyed watching the animals in the... More

On arrival and very late in the evening we were met at the suite, unfortunatly due to a mix up the downstairs was instead reserved although i insisted on the upstairs suite due to its reviews, the aircon...

We arrived at the chalets at around 9pm in the evening.We stayed at the Marco Polo Lodge with breathtaking scenery with wild animals and a view of the Franschhoek mountains. The piece de resistance of our trip was the outstanding service provided by the lodge assistants. The staff are extremely polite and helpful and will cater to "most" requests. We... More

We arrived at our beautiful little chalet that's nestled amongst the pines above the main Lodge (we stayed in the Hadida suite) where it was both quiet and peaceful. The scene was breathtaking, with wildlife that was literally right outside our windows; springbok, eland, zebra and even ostriches. Our 2 nights there were perfect and the staff at the main... More

Fabulous 3 night stay in the Marco Polo Lodge. We were on the executive suite on the left wing... amazing view on franschoek valley. Good breakfast served by two very nice butlers (Anderson and his colleague). 5 min drive from Franschoek centre. We will come back!
