Reviewed 18 March 2017 via mobile

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.

Stayed: March 2017, travelled with family

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 but worth it.

Room Tip: If you want a room nearer the main building request rooms 1 - 6.

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..
