“Great hotel and good staff.”
Reviewed 30 March 2012

A really super place to stay in the Winelands. Superb and spacious accommodation with all you could possibly need to enhance your stay. Some may consider the hotel to be somewhat old-fashioned in a colonial way but believe me, that is a real compliment. It is good to go to an hotel where traditional values are respected and maintained. Breakfast was excellent and the dinner in the restuarant was also good but actually did not quite live up to the reviews we had read prior to our trip. Nonetheless we strongly recommend the hotel.

This hotel is a quiet cool oasis in the busy little town of Franschhoek. Our room was delightful, a sitting room and bedroom with an enormous bathroom. The service was excellent and the food in the restaurant for dinner and breakfast was also excellent. I can thoroughly recommend this hotel as a good place to use as a base to explore the winelands.

Beautiful site. Nice people. South African wine country is quite different from the USA. Our room was very nice with a balcony with a great view. Food was very good. Breakfast was excellent.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pools are best.

I did not expect a room of this quality and size. Lovely bathroom, comfortable bedroom and sitting room with tv bar etc. Two balconies, the upstairs balcony facing a vineyard and great as the sun sets in the afternoon. Two small pools, one very warm ( heated) and the other not heated but warm enough to be refreshing.
Wish we had stayed longer here and shorter in Cape Town as this was like having a perfect weekend break hotel in the UK, except with great weather.
Evening meal was disappointing, but- thats optional anyway and should not detract you from staying in this lovely hotel in a great setting.
A few insects in the room, hence only 4 stars for cleanliness, but it must be nearly impossible to have it insect free with such hot temperatures

We stayed in a delightful two storey cottage with a bedroom and bathroom on the lower floor and lounge with terrace overlooking the Grande Provence wine estate.
the staff were very helpful especially with suggesting restaurants, even printing out menus for us.
Breakfast was also excellent with plenty of choice both on a buffet and to order.
the grounds with the villas were beautiful and there were two separate pools..one heated with comfortable loungers.
we ate at the hotels acclaimed restaurant o e of the two nights and had a delicious meal,although we did feel the service was a bit amateur considering the standard of restaurant.
I would recommend this hotel and a stay in Franschhoek. our only regret was it was not longer than two nights.
