We stayed at LQF during the annual Franschhoek Literary Festival in May for 4 nights (petit garden suite). Its central location is ideal, being within easy walking distance of all the sights in town. I can highly recommend its restaurant, The Tasting Room (especially the 8 course menu with wine pairing (all local South African wines)). The restaurant lives up to its internationally acclaimed reputation. Just a word of caution: as this is one of the top rated restaurants in South Africa, be sure to book when making your accommodation reservation (waiting list can be up to 2 months). Also, I disagree with another reviewer: the hotel website clearly states that the restaurant is open on Tue - Sat evenings only. I found the staff extremely helpful and considerate. In particular, the hotel went the extra mile to accommodate our 9-month baby. Not only did they provide a cot, but also other complimentary baby essentials (such as a bath mat; hooded towel; and a baby toiletry set). A welcome relief for parents who normally have to travel with all manner of baby paraphernalia. We have stayed at various hotels and guest houses in Franschhoek, but the LQF hotel remains my favourite.
