Helpful owner and friendly staff. Delicious breakfast. Nice and spacious room on two levels. Aircondition were placed on the wall in second level which made the lower level cool and the sleeping room warm:-(.

We enjoyed our stay in Franshhoek. There are many accommodations, and our stay at this property was pleasant, esp. with the pool during a particularly hot spell, but given the number of options, we opt to try a different place next time. Breakfast only on offer 8:30 to 9:30 not the best, and rooms are clean-ish: big sticky spot on... More

My wife and I stayed in one of the cottages on offer (Toffee) and found the accommodation to be wanting. The beds were old and most uncomfortable, no shampoo on offer and soap or 'body wash' in a plastic dispenser only. No aircon in the bedrooms nor fans. When trying to find out things, no one available at reception. Wanted... More

The Auberge La Dauphine is nested at the foot of the mountains (Mont Rochelle) closing the Franschoek valley, in a small (for the local standards) but nice park. The location is peaceful, approximately 1 km outside of the center of the town. The staff is helpful. Our room (pinotage) was nicely and colourfully decorated, spacious and with a nice view... More

Beautiful location and views, spacious garden with nice swimming pool. Very friendly and helpful manager. Rooms have wireless internet and panic button, which is a plus. The breakfast was disappointing: lack of choice, no fresh bread and dogs of the owners were allowed in the breakfast room (and elsewhere on the premises). Owners came by once on the premises but...

The guest house is set in a beautiful location, just a short drive from the city center. Never before played tennis on a court in such an idyllic setting! Stayed in the Acorn Cottage, which is ideal for families with kids, especially toddlers as there is a small fence around the outside area. My godson absolutely loved the donkeys and... More

Once again having travelled from Scotland we stayed at Auberge La Dauphine not for the first time, and again all we can say is please stay there if you can. Ronel and her fellow staff members make you feel at home and cannot do enough to help and advise you about the local places to visit and eat.

We stayed at the Toffee Cottage and found it to be splendid. So spacious, huge and very elegant bathrooms and the cottage is perfect for kids. There is a great lawn area outside for kids to run around and the view is fantastic. Great service, wonderful and delicious breakfast and all in all, perfect location to stay in Franschhoek. We...
