          The reception was the most friendly and efficient experienced in some time. In general we enjoyed our stay and found all of the staff excellent. we enjoyed our room (no.3) which was a surprise upgrade.

          The buffet breakfast was a bit disorganised- on our third morning the food was cooked to order and was superb, the chef's bread was also superb.

        • Group of friends
          7.4

          thought the food (dinner on evening) rather bland not up to the standard of the hotel.

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          I liked the central location, the pool/courtyard, the air-conditioning, the courtesy of the staff

          I didn't like having to carry my wife's and my own heavy suitcase upstairs; the minute TV which could not be watched from the bed; the cricket on the verandah which "sang" all night or the location of room 5 which picks up all the street traffic from 5:30am onwards (especially when on holiday)

        • Single
          9.2

          The position was excellent, the hotel being located in the heart of Franschoek village. The only problem is that it is on the main road through the village, which has become quite busy and therefore there is some noise. The other thing is that the air conditioner blew directly onto the bed. Otherwise the hotel was very well managed, even if a tad expensive for its offerings because my last minute rate didn't include breakfast. The staff were wonderful, the pool quiet, clean and lovely in a beautiful garden with wonderful umbrellas, loungers and pool service. The hotel is of a modest size (about 30 rooms) which makes it not overwhelming and gives it a homely air. The whole place was spotless.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          The location was perfect. Accommodation great with good sized pool and area for relaxation. Food good.

          Breakfast at R125pp + gratuity was considered expensive relative to other more significant meals enjoyed during our trip.

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          The location is fantastic, the staff are really friendly, the rooms are spacious, clean and well equiped. We were a family of 8 with 4 rooms for my 60thbrtday and we cannot fault it. The staff decorated my room and gave me complimentary champagne. We will be back

        • Family with children
          5.8

          Our daughter's room was very comfortable

          In our room the air conditioning did not work (during a heatwave) and the staff were resistant to moving us, though they eventually did so, the room was also very small compared to others available.

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          The location was great, Franschhoek was very relaxing, and the hotel was very comfortable. Staff were very helpful. Perfect for a relaxing retreat.

          I wish they would take the pool cleaner out of the pool - it was there permanently.

        • Group of friends
          7.0

          Our stay was only brief however, the hotel was in a great location had excellent facilities, and is a short walk to all the restaurants and shops in Franschhoek. It's also on the doorstep of all the fantastic vineyards. Unfortunately it rained during our stay so we didn't get to use the pool, however the pool area looks very relaxing.

          In the evening I ran a bath, however the water filling the bath up was slightly brown, so had to abandon that idea.

        • Family with children
          8.2

          Rooms were very comfortable and spacious and beautiful fittings. Supper and dessert were very nice

          A sign before arriving on the site would help drivers not to miss the hotel.As it is one has to keep looking out for it.

        • Couple
          7.8

          The rooms around the pool are really nice - large with a huge bathroom and very comfortable beds

          we decided to stay one more night and were given room 7, which is upstairs in the lobby. The room was 1/3 of the size of the other rooms and was very noisy as one could hear the set up for breakfast from about 05:30 as well as smell the coffee while they were making it.

        • Family with children
          7.4

          Location in Franschoek was very convenient. A staff member was very helpful when we had a problem with the return of our laundry from an external laundry service, even though we had already checked out.

          We were cold! While the time of our visit was at the end of winter the rooms were cold with the heating provided by the a/c unit - this is not unusual but we didn't like it!

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          We enjoyed the atmosphere, which is very typical to Franschhoek and the location as all the shops and restaurants were a few minutes' walk away.!

          We appreciated the fact that all the staff is able and willing to speak English (although it is clear that many of them are Afrikaans speaking), because of the large amount of overseas visitors,but it would be good to allow them to respond in Afrikaans when guests address them in Afrikaans!

        • Couple
          5.0

          The management is completely unresponsive to major issues. Would never recommend to anyone.

          Good location, luxerious hotel

          Impossible to get water in the room after 11.00 pm
