Auberge La Dauphine
Ranked #40 of 64 Franschhoek B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 10, 2013

I have now stayed at Auberge La Dauphine on three separate occasions, and I always enjoy it. The couple who runs the place are incredibly friendly and welcoming, and the setting just outside of town gives it a more natural feel while still being close to all the great restaurants and wineries. Fantastic value for money in Franschhoek!

From the moment I stepped in this little farm I immediately regretted staying for just one night.
The place is beautiful and we had a wonderful view of the mountains from our room.

The girl at reception went out of her way to secure us a last minute booking for dinner at a great restaurant (everywhere seemed to be booked out, but after a few calls she got us a table at Reubens where we had a fantastic meal), and she also recommended a few wineries to visit the next day.

Breakfast was very good.

The Auberge is a pleasant 15-minute walk to town, but apparently it's not advisable to walk back after dark (that's what the police told us as we were approaching the hotel after dinner).

Thank you Anne and Ronelle for making our stay comfortable especially considering we had our little jack Russell with us.
We stayed in the Apples Cottage for a night. The farm is beautiful, with a great dam, swimming pool and little garden to relax in. Rooms and bathrooms were very clean and spacious.Breakfasts were substantial. The farm is a two minute convenient drive from town.

We will definately be back!

We staid in the Apples Cottage which is away from the main Guest House. The cottage is spacious, extremely neat and clean and decorated with style. Plenty of white clean crispy towels. The owners and employees takes pride in their establishment without intruding on your privacy. Ideal location to visit the nearby village.

Auberge La Dauphine offers comfortable accommodation at a fair price. The cottage we stayed in for one night catered to all our needs. The en-suite bathrooms are spacious with large bath and shower. Soaps and towels are available in the bathroom. The kitchen is fully equipped including fresh milk and complimentary coffee. We used the television only for background music. A couple of channels are available should you choose to stay in and relax on the couch. Alternatively you can make use of the well-kept facilities including tennis, swimming, sunbathing or a drink in the gazebo next to the dam. The surrounding Franschhoek Mountains adds a sense of relaxation and peace to every corner on the property.

We were most impressed by Ronel. Her sincere and friendly service is highly commendable! Upon enquiry she told us off by heart which restaurants in the village could seat us at what time and made the necessary arrangements for dinner. Breakfast is served only between 8.30 and 9.30. Since we decided to lie in after a lovely evening in the village, we were not ready to make our way to the breakfast room by 9.30. We asked if we could have breakfast in the cottage which was no problem at all. We were all blown away by the wonderful service that we received! (Thank you so much, Ronel! The level of authentic service you offer is a rare find.)

If you are after luxury and grandeur you will certainly find it in Franschhoek. At Auberge La Dophine you will find tasteful, simple, comfortable accommodation on a large property two minutes away from the village.

Room Tip: The two cottages offer more privacy as they are a short walking distance from the guesthouse. I woul...

We stayed in one of the cottages, and loved it. You have everything you need, and a bit more off the beaten road. Not far away from Franschoek Kitchen @ Holden Manz. They have 2 bicycles you can rent for Zar50 /day. Perfect start to the wine exploring trip.

Room Tip: go for the cottage! much better and more private than the normal room

Franschoek is great in winter. No masses of tourists, restaurants are quiet (although make sure you book early) & I love the Cape Winelands in winter with a bottle of red and a fire on the go. Auberge la Duaphine had lovely rooms, friendly service, a relaxed atmosphere and is close to town. We'll definitely return.
