This was an absolutely charming find and a great way to end off our South African adventure. The rooms here are extremely large and very luxurious, with super comfortable beds and great linens. It is also hard to beat waking up amid a working vineyard every morning, the views are gorgeous and the air fresh and crisp. The best part...

Love Franschhoek, quaint, pretty little town, a lot like being in Europe. Worth a visit, lots of places to stay, and especially to stay at La Petite Dauphine. Good food and wine, lots to experience. Worth spending a few days there.

Lovely setting and a fantastic room. Very comfortable with all the extras you can expect from a 5 star facility. The TV choice could be better. breakfast was fantastic at the Bon Bon café. Expensive but quite lovely.

Spent two nights at the hotel. It is a beautiful establishment especially if you want to be on your own since the accommodation is situated in the extensive grounds/orchards. Some people may not like being several hundred yards from the main building but we really enjoyed our time there including having a "chicken" at the breakfast table. A little expensive...

Dec 16 - totally stunning location, service was second to none and lovely food. It is a short drive into town but private car services are available - however why bother when you are in such an idyllic place..

This hotel is breathtaking- surrounded by mountains,with greenery and flowers everywhere.. truly one of the most beautiful settings I have seen. Rooms are very nice. Each guest has their own suite ( I think there are 9 total) spread across the property. We found it nice to be able to walk through the vineyards and roam the property. Breakfast is...

I can not recommend this place highly enough. Paradise. I am very blessed to be able to generally stay in high end places when I travel and this place easily compares to the best - in fact I prefer it to most 5/6 star hotels for many reasons - the surrounds are stunning, the attention to detail in the rooms...

When only the best will do, you have to visit here. Lovely large room overlooking the pond and the vineyards and mountains of Franshoek. Great bathroom, fast wi-fi. Everything was right - the best room of our 14 day holiday. Stefan took great care of us and was a great help. I had couple of glasses of Port from the...
