“Country house elegance with style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

We stayed two nights here .Wonderful charm and elegance in a country house type hotel with delightful flower filled fragrant gardens with fountains ,lovely relaxing pool area, and friendly and helpful staff .Pleasant lounges with roaring fires depending on the season .Large rooms and bathrooms.
Breakfasts plentiful and delicious, and potential to eat outdoors on the balcony .
We ate one evening at the restaurant and tried the tasting menu... delicious food though the ambience was slightly formal rather than romantic
The hotel is a little way out of the village but a complimentary private shuttle was available whenever we requested it which was really useful.
Free wi fi.
Really enjoyed our short stay .

Room Tip: Room 12 did not have a balcony .

Loved the small town of Franschhoek and the Country House and Villas. We had a delightful stay at these villas with our group. We enjoyed the fabulous breakfast every morning, the relaxing pool area and the great service we received from the staff we encountered. The rooms are wonderfully decorated and comfortable. Very clean and maintained well. The shuttle service into town was unexpected and enjoyed by all. I would definitely recommend this location to anyone.

Ideal location in a pretty town. Traditionally decorated, and good standard of room. Beautiful gardens. 2 swimming pools, one heated, with excellent touches like ice available to sunbathers to help themselves, as well as chilled face cloths. Shuttle service provided if we didn't fancy eating at the hotel, free of charge. Very helpful staff. All in all, a super experience, and we would stay there again.

Fantastic place to stay, we had a suite which was lovely. All the staff were very good and nothing was to much trouble. Restaurant was good but would not rank it one of the best in SA
Would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: I believe all the rooms would be good

What a lovely place to stay for the last night of our South African adventure.
Here service counts and nothing is too much trouble!
Our room was huge and had a lovely four poster bed. We were invited to take sherry in the lounge as soon as we were settled in our room.
We were offered free shuttles into and back from town on demand and the welcome could not have been better.A wonderful restaurant is part of this hotel and we were recommended to use whilst exploring the town.
The menu did not disappoint and I took the four course tasting menu with accompanying wines.
A must try experience for anyone visiting this lovely town

We stayed at the Country House for 2 nights as part of our tour around the Garden Route.
The room overlooked the pools and had a lovely balcony, though the weather was too hot to make much use of this! Breakfast was reasonable with a choice of continental or cooked, though the choice of fruit was restricted compared to other SA establishments we have visited. In the evening we tried the tasting menu on one evening and the a-la-carte on the second evening, the former was a little disappointing when compared with the tasting menu experienced on an earlier occasion at Le Quartier Francais in Franschoek, the a-la-carte was much better value for money. Staff were attentive and pleasant at all times.

Pretty rooms, beautiful gardens and good service. Clean hotel with white crisp linen. Delicious breakfasts and helpful staff! The location in Franschhoek is perfect. The pool area is beautiful with both heated and cold pools.

Room Tip: Stay in a villa for privacy!
