Our stay at Le Quartier Francais was one of the main highlights from our 10-day South Africa trip.

Our stay at Le Quartier Francais was one of the main highlights from our 10-day South Africa trip. The grounds are unbelievably serene and immaculate, and I felt every worry slip away minutes after getting there. The staff was SO INCREDIBLE and took care of absolutely everything. The peaceful courtyard breakfast was heavenly, and room service was equally perfect. I was able to walk through vineyards and shops within minutes but honestly would have been happy spending my whole day on the lovely property. I can't wait to return and would recommend this spot to anyone looking for relaxation and luxury in the Winelands. Read less

I work in the travel industry and have done so for over 35 years. I had a honeymoon couple booked in for two nights and unfortunately one of them tested positive for covid-19.

I work in the travel industry and have done so for over 35 years. I had a honeymoon couple booked in for two nights and unfortunately one of them tested positive for covid-19. This was part of a pre-departure requirement from the U.K. I have used Le Quartier Francais many times for my customers but the fact that they charged 100% cancellation fee 5 days prior to arrival left a bitter taste. My customers have re-booked but I have booked somewhere else for them. During these times. Hotels need to be understanding and flexible. Clearly they are not here. Out of seven different bookings for my customers at different properties, Le Quartier Francais was the only one who enforced 100% cancellation. I won’t be using them for customers in the future.

The property is classical and beautiful. It is located at the center of Franschoek. We had a spacious room overlooking the pool. Service was welcoming and helpful. We had the tasting menus in both restaurants and they were superb. The TV menu is limited to Netflix. We didn’t mind it but it’s worth being aware. We really enjoyed our stay!

I would have given this a higher review, except for the fact that their tv service sucks. First of all, you can only stream service here, so if you want current news or sports, you are out of luck. If you do want to stream something on Netflix or YouTube, you will have to wait every 5 minutes for it to buffer. This is the only thing keeping… Read more
