I wished I'd read the review "Beautiful setting, but ruined our wedding night" before we chose La Petite Dauphine for our wedding. We had a bad experience, and our wedding memories are all but ruined. They like to point to "prices subject to change" and then present a bill bigger than was quoted. I would definitely not recommend this place if you have a special event you wish to cherish. I agree, they made absolutely no effort to make us, the wedding couple, feel special in our room after the wedding -- I was surprised. For the hefty bill we were presented with, you'd think some flowers and a bottle of champers in the room would've been a nice touch. But nothing, we were treated like run of the mill guests, and not a couple who had filled their coffers substantially. When we look back at our wedding, all we remember is the horrible proprietor. They are lucky to have a beautiful setting and very good food, but be warned if you plan to have a wedding there, because it can leave you disappointed and sad. There are so many other places to choose in Franschoek. Don't make the mistake we made.
