This is a wonderful place to stay in the Winelands - we stayed here over Stellenbosch - and it was a great hotel with great services / restaurant and staff. Short and sweet. STAY HERE. Best hotel we stayed in in SA - and we dont mess around!

My family and I spent almost 3 weeks in June touring South Africa. We had spent 4 days in Cape Town, and after a stressful day (car broken into) showed up after 10 PM at the Franschhoek Country House, which had been recommended and booked by our travel agent.
The manager was waiting for our arrival, and told us she had upgraded us into the villa suites. We were impressed by the personal service, and then we got to the suites- WOW-very beautiful, incredibly spacious luxury lodging that beat every place we had ever stayed, anywhere. After a long day it was more than perfect.
The next morning we had an excellent breakfast (hot and cold) with excellent service in the main lodge area overlooking the gardens. We were given terrific suggestions on things to do in Franschhoek, and off we went for a fun day touring wineries and restaurants in this beautiful area.
The Franscchoek Country House is an amazing place in a beautiful part of South Africa- we highly recommend it.

We stayed with our two children (21 and 19) as part of a whirlwind week trip in S.A. I have a great interest in wine and wanted a visit to some wine estates. On arrival at the hotel from Cape Town we were cordially greeted and instantly made welcome. We stayed in two of the newer Villa suites which were beautifully furnished, spacious and extremely comfortable.
We ate in the restaurant on the first night which was excellent. Having a second home in France we are used to good food and wine and this equalled our best French experiences.
We were only dissapointed that we only had two nights there. We will certainly be going back in future years and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone visiting the region.

The country house is a hotel with restaurant. We were upgraded from ordinary room to deluxe and we needed to be. The ordinary rooms are tired and the bathrooom small. The deluxe rooms are large but the decor is dated.
The restaurant is cramped unless the weather is good enough to eat outside and the food undistinguished. There are a lot of better restauarants a short distance away. The staff were helpful but not particularly knowledgeable. Good breakfast.

We love Fransschoek Country House & Villas, we've stayed there twice & would stay there every weekend, if we could afford it! It is such a beautiful place, the grounds are amazing & you feel like you are in an enchanted forrest. They have a heated & a non-heated pool where you can lie & enjoy a few cocktails, or have a light lunch in the restaurant, which has the finest cuisine & they have sprinklers ourside to cool you down on a hot day & tree/fairy lights to add that extra special romance at night. The rooms are luxurious and both times, I felt like I could sleep forever, which is an indication as to how comfortable the bedding is, plus that the rooms can be sunny or totally dark, once you draw the drapes...an absolute gem.
