“Good hotel in picturesque Franschhoek.”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

My husband and I had a lovely 2 night stay at this hotel on 13th and 14th Oct. Nice and close to the centre of the town and within walking distance to shops and restaurants. Nice big room with a bar fridge. Franschhoek is well worth a visit. Would highly recommend and will definitely go back..

We won a price to stay at Protea Hotel Franschhoek for two nights. As we were first visiting my daughter in Cape Town I phoned and asked if we could check in late at night. The staff assured me that that would be fine. When we walked into the hotel the staff greeted us so warmly. The hotel extended without losing the old fashioned style of the village. The breakfast buffet is a fantastic feast. I would love to know what the chef puts in the sauce with the meat balls. I would definitely stay there again. The reception staff were so helpful and knowledgeable about the area.

Room Tip: I think the rooms above the reception (where we stayed) are the best as you have the best view.

Dear Vivian P

Thanks for posting your review on Trip Advisor. I am so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us.
By the way, the sauce for the meatballs is just fresh cream with a touch of Wellington's sweet chilli sauce. Enjoy!

It was a very pleasant surprise after a long day on the road to arrive at the Protea Hotel in Franschhoek. I don't know what I was expecting, but all of the hotels we had stayed at on this trip were of a good standard. The Franschhoek Protea was different; it took my breath away. From the magnificent staircase in the entrance hall to the large and very comfortable rooms around the beautiful garden courtyard and pool area, the hotel simply exuded elegance and style. Sitting on the balcony sipping a glass,or two, of chilled Sauvignon Blanc, and listening to the weaver birds I was in heaven.

Had 2 enjoyable nights in September. Well appointed rooms with lots of space. The friendly and efficient staff are the back-bone of this establishment - they just couldn't do enough to make our stay unforgettable. Highly recommended hotel, well situated and definitely worth a visit.

This was our first hotel on a Saga holiday and was a great start to the holiday. All the rooms are arranged in a square around the grounds and small pool. The rooms were very spacious, nicely decorated and clean. There was room to have a party in the bathroom. There was an excellent choice at breakfast and the evening meals were very impressive. We felt quite safe having a stroll along the main street after the evening meal.

Very cosy clean room, well appointed , breakfast was excellent , reception service was very friendly & helpful . Hotel situated on the main street so very good location, room s were overlooking inner courtyard so no street noise
