What a beautiful guest house in an absolutely stunning location. Thank you Ronel and the team for looking after us so well, above and beyond the call of duty. Thanks also too Jake for his most illuminating wine tour.

On arrival we were received warmly by Ronelle, the manageress. Our room was clean, spacious and elegantly furnished. Bed was very comfortable with crisp white cotton sheets/duvet. The property has a nice clean pool and lovely, shadey reading spots under the oak trees, where you could watch the sqirrels foraging for acorns. Breakfasts hearty with choice.

La Dauphine is just a little way out of the town centre in a quiet location with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. The manageress, Ronel, was welcoming and helpful. Breakfasts were fine with a 'special' offered one day. Our accommodation was roomy and comfortable with a sitting room, bedroom and large bathroom plus front and back door access.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Auberge La Dauphine for 2 nights, and were somewhat gob smacked by the stunning location of the guesthouse. The actual cottages look very quaint and romantic from the outside, complementing the beautiful surrounds, but the inside was a little drab and in need of updating. The shower was also very tiny. Nonetheless, we had... More

We spent a night here but were underwhelmed by the experience - paticularly the lack of welcome (no one to open the gate till the owner happened to walk past with her dog, opened the gate and told us to wait for the manager who arrived more than half an hour later without an apology). The setting was pretty with... More

I very much enjoyed my stay at Auberge La Dauphine. Stayed 27th December, I was very lucky being able to book a one night stay 2 days before our travels, Franschhoek is very busy during the holidays. Ronel and the dogs were very welcoming when we arrived, she helped recommend the best wineries and helped us arrange a taxi for... More

We stayed in the cottages with friends, what a great place to get away from everything. Great service and the cottages are very comfortable and quiet. Great beds and bathrooms. Breakfast is first class. Take swim in the lake (dam) or the pool. Pet a donkey or Jack the dog. Sit on the patio and take in the views of... More

A reasonable place with friendly staff. Rooms need a fix up though. Noisy air conditioning and the fan in the room did not work. No views at all. Nice pool area. Good beds. Breakfast was good. We have been a few times but will not return because there are better places with superior views for similar prices.

AnneStone, Owner at Auberge La Dauphine, responded to this review

The Chardonnay family suite allocated to this guest has been refurbished in a provence style with a brand new bathroom. It’s such a shame that he didn’t let us know about the noisy air con as we would have tried to do something about this. His son broke the fan control and that is why it didn’t work. The guest's...

What a charming guest house with great amenities. A special thank you to Ronel who handled our complicated family booking with lots of changes effortlessly, and nothing was to much to ask on arrival. Full marks for excellent service!
