Recommended by our Travel Agent in the UK and a very popular place judging by the number of guests. Lovely (if freezing cold) pool and a popular wedding venue. A La Carte restaurant but the subdued lighting strained our ageing eyesight! Cottages are lovely and bed very comfortable with well appointed kitchenette. The Spa is very popular and so booking...

I had family from the US staying over at the hotel for a number of nights for my wedding. My in-laws had their hotel room switched three times as non of the AC units were working - please bear in mind that it was 34 degrees Celsius. My honeymoon suite also had to be swapped for another room as our... More

We attended a wedding at the venue. And as I see from another reviewer, I too was compelled to write a review. Very expensive for what they offer. The wedding meal was very cold. The portion size ridiculous. The portions didn't even fill a saucer, let alone a side plate. Or a plate. The service was atrocious with no management... More

This is my first review. Felt compelled. Trouble checking in, room not clean and took two cleans before acceptable, called for room service coffee and hour later called back and the lost our order.

We came for one night with the kids to celebrate my wife's birthday. Given the idyllic setting, a top rate spa, and friendly helpful staff the little things let it down - the villa, 2 bathrooms but no separate shower, a standard double in the master bedroom, and a postage stamp sized tv - easy to fix in an otherwise...

The hotel is a bit outside of Franschhoek and offers rooms both in several larger buildings and smaller bungalows. It is placed in a beautiful landscape with great views on the mountains surrounding Franschhoek. The restaurant is good and so is the breakfast. The hotel has fast wireless internet and a small (unheated) pool.

We stayed for 2 nights as part of our birthday celebration along the garden route. The room was up in the thatched roof, which was lovely. On our second night we arrived back to find rose petals on the bed, a decorated birthday cake and a bottle of bubbly! It was lovely and really made our day. Franschhoek was such... More

We stayed here for two nights whilst on the wine tours in Franschhoek. My first impressions were not great, we arrived early so were unable to check in (which we were expecting) but we wanted to park our car before heading straight out to the wine tour. The receptionist seemed quite put out when we explained we would be back... More

A stunning hotel situated in the hills of Franschhoek, yet still only a five minute drive to the main village. The hotel is beautifully decorated and has a relaxed/calming feeling throughout. The gardens are very well kept and so too is the outside swimming pool. The only two criticisms were that the front-of-house staff could have been more professional and... More
