Guys, what is this hotel? It's simply amazing! Me and my wife spent a few days of our honeymoon and got absolutely impressed with everything in this hotel. Starting by the first impression, the entrance of L'ermitage seems a path leading to a castle. We thought, for a few seconds, we were in the wrong place. The hostess offered us... More

Rated 5 star resort hence charging 5 star prices (or is it for foreign currency). No bottled water, fridge not working, bathroom needs a good clean, linen torn and confusion with account when booking out.

This is undeniably a wonderful hotel - with fantastic scenic views of Franschhoek. The hotel room was huge, clean, luxurious. However we couldn't help feeling that the service and overall atmosphere was nowhere near the standards of other accommodation we stayed at in South Africa. It is situated a little further out of the main highstreet than other hotels. The... More

The room is beautiful but lacking finer details. Our view was of the building to the right of our room that needed some holes filled and paint touched up. Both the pillow and the duvet was torn in places which is not acceptable. On the first night we realised that we only had two towels, no floor mats or hand... More

The overall experience was excellent. We had a 2 day conference there and the staff were very friendly and couldn't help enough. The Villas were amazing - 2 huge double rooms with en suites - stunning bath in the middle of the room, large lounge and a kitchen. Stunning veranda overlooking the mountain and small lake. in short the villa... More

Very serene and luxurious accommodations. Beautiful verandas with view of the mountains. More appropriate for longer stays. Staff friendly but not helpful for finding tours nor restaurant recommendations. Breakfast is good. On the edge of town so a vehicle is helpful.

What an amazing place in an even more amazing setting! Surrounded by a majestic mountain range, our Villas (9 and 10) were a haven of tranquility for my whole family.
