I highly recommend the Marco Polo lodges, had a great 2 night stay here, luxury accommodation and surroundings. The lounge areas are decorated with the owners game trophies, which we were aware of before booking, but they just add to the atmosphere of the place, it really was impressive. Great balcony area for stunning daytime views across the valley and... More

Entry level at Chamonix based on the other options available. The accommodation is sufficient however has "aged" and is in dire need of a makeover as the potential is huge. The setting and view is outstanding with good access. Reception was very good and friendly and we did mention that Rouge requires a makeover and I am sure that same... More

Thanks to Christopher we had no lack of anything. They make anything happen for you. We wanted a picnic on the same day-no problem. Usually you have to book it 24h in advance. I can really recommend the picnic. The rooms are clean and most of them have a great view. You can see zebras all the time, due to... More

We stayed in Rouge, one of the smaller cottages, and I believe other accommodation at Chamonix may be superior. We knew it was small and not top of the range, and it was priced accordingly. But this is no excuse for the ancient fittings, the lack of thorough cleaning, the smell of cigarette smoke, and not even providing a basic... More

The room was amazing, huge, with everything in that you would need for a weekend away, and more. Breakfast was lovely and as bonus we were upgraded to a bigger room! Will definitely recommend to our family and friends!

We stayed in the unforgettable, rustic Leopard Lodge for two evenings, it's a really great spot shared with eland, zebra, wildebeest & springbok. The room is enormous. We got spoilt booking for breakfast at the Marco Polo Lodge, and being served privately. We'd love to go back when in SA again. (Lots of trophies in the room, not for the... More

My fiance and myself recently spent a weekend at Chamonix, Franschhoek. What a fantastic estate with sublime service. Nothing was too much trouble for Brywell who took care of us during our stay. The views from this beautiful estate were breath taking as were the game that we saw on the farm. I will definitely stay there again. :)

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.
