Stayed at the Protea Hotel in Franschhoek for two (2) nights as we were attending a Wedding on Friday 1st November. Decided to make a Weekend of it and stayed till Sunday the 3rd. Weather unfortunately for the Wedding not great but didn't dampen the Bride and Groom's spirit and then Saturday and Sunday turned out to be glorious. Had a wonderful weekend and very reluctant to leave this delightful hotel. Location marvelous with loads of restaurants well within walking distance and lots of interesting shops. Staff went out of their way to be very helpful and loved the nice touch of still turning the beds down in the evening with a treat on your pillow. Breakfast out on the Verandah was great and the Garden area surrounding the Pool just glorious lying in the sun. Rooms very comfortable and clean with all the normal amenities, bar fridge, flat-screen TV etc. Would highly recommend and can't wait for our next trip back to Franschhoek and the Protea!
