Having had our daughters wedding at another venue in Franschhoek and the family off our hands we decided to destress by staying at the Franschhoek hotel and spa - recommended by the grooms family who had stayed here pre-wedding.
Well - everything was perfect for us with a good inclusive dinner package (we had eaten out for a week) a nice quiet suite overlooking the vineyards and almost solitude as the hotel was very quiet in early March. Fantastic mountain views.
We picked this hotel as it was away from the town and we hate traffic noise (not much anyway in the area). It only took a few minutes to drive anywhere and our day trips ranged out to the other side of Stellenbosch - about a 25 minute drive.
Restaurant dining was good although the very friendly service could have been a little quicker, the food was excellent. Room service was also spot on with a quoted time of 40 minutes being met on schedule. The breakfast buffet was also well laid out offering excellent choices for either light or full on breakfast dining.
Our only concern is that we would have loved a swim in the pool but it was freezing.
We will certainly return to the area but at the top end of the market you are spoilt for choice of accommodation so your options are huge.
