We got a voucher for the group and decided to use it in franschoek. It proved to be quite a task to redeem it when we actually wanted to be in the area and eventually the rules changed and we could not use it for weekends but a call to the manager and he was willing to accommodate us(thanks).

Central location: Clean, neat areas - centred around an inviting pool: Reasonable room: Receptionists were excellent - helpful and polite: Bar area a bit uninviting: Three warming open fires for winter. Enjoyable stay.

The guesthouses in Franschhoek seem to book up super early so we ended up here for a couple of nights. There's nothing particularly special about the hotel, but it felt safe, was well priced and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The best thing is the location, not far from the centre of town (10 minute walk to the... More

Right in the middle of Franschhoek, walking distance to various shops and restaurants. Room was lovely and clean, very spacious with all the added extras. Stunning view of the mountain. Great bar for sun downers.

I have stayed three times in this Hotel in the past few months and the reason why I stay here is because I belong to the Protea/Marriott loyalty programme.

There are many places to stay in and around the beautiful, picturesque Franschhoek. Our place of choice for our family of four, was the Protea Hotel. We were given a family room, which, to our surprise, included a fully equipped kitchenette which made thing a lot easier catering for small children. The hotel is perfectly located within walking distance from... More

Centrally situated in Franschhoek - ideal for stroll through town to visit top restaurants all in close proximity. Top wine estates all in a hours drive. Nice spacious rooms with great views over Franschhoek mountains. Average breakfast. Friendly service.
