We stayed in the main house and everything was perfect, especially the owners, Dan and Anne, who made us very welcome. The setting is beautiful, overlooking the dam and surrounded by mountains, very relaxing. A great breakfast is served by the cheerful staff each morning, fresh fruit and a full English to follow, with the eggs coming straight from the... More

Not a typical B&B, more of a small inn. The rooms are comfortable and well furnished and we were very happy here during our stay. We love being able to meet and interact with the owners of SA B&Bs, that was clearly lacking here. You do see staff, but there is no owner to chat with. If you are looking... More

A beautiful place within easy reach of Cape Town & Hermanus, so we could join our 2 daughters there for a relaxing time in the self catering cottage. Lovely furnishings and spacious rooms, comfortable beds and a super fireplace for the cold & wet winters. Hosts were warm & welcoming as were the rest of the staff who served us... More

Anne, the owner, was so kind and friendly and accommodating; this was a last minute decision to go away to Franschhoek for the weekend and she made it possible by putting us up in one of her beautiful suites; with snow on the mountains just a few kilometers away, Anne gave us clear instructions on how to make sure we...

We have just come back from an unbelievable weekend at Auberge La Dauphine. Received on arrival with a warm welcome from Anne and the dogs (Ben, Alfie, Molly, Jack and of course Henry). Our accommodation in the Appels cottage was perfect for our family of 4. Spotless, comfortable and everything we needed. Close proximity to Appels and Muriel (rescue donkeys... More

We stayed the weekend there with friends in March 2014, and the scenery was magnificent. Just a few kilometres outside the town it gave us a lovely relaxing place with swimming pool to go and relax in during the day and was close enough to the town to go and enjoy at night. We hired two of the chalets and... More

Spacious units. Farm like feeling. Nice views of the mountain. Bathrooms need a bit of proper cleaning as did smell musty. The couches also smelled but it might be because of the fireplace. Kids enjoyed it with the space, donkeys and damn.

Very well located auberge, just a few turns outside Franschoek centre on a wine estate. Excellent service and very accompanying personnel ready to help out if needed. If we came back in the summertime we would enjoy the tennis court and pool amidst wine yards. The two-level rooms are really worth it!...and as for the giraffes....they are right on your... More

On our honeymoon we spent one night in this beautiful B&B in Fransschoek. The owners were so friendly and we felt very welcome! I got stung by some weird bee and she gave me her own allergy medicine just in case i would get an reaction. They offered us a bottle of wine for our honeymoon to enjoy on their... More

We recently spent two nights in Franschoek and at Auberge la Dauphene. Whilst I understand other comments about catering to Foreigners, we still throughly enjoyed our stay there. I guess if I was to make any comment about things we would have like would have been a better braai, and a better equipped kitchen for those wanting to make proper... More
