We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Le Quartier Francais. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we were provided with everything we could have possibly wanted. Everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful. The room was lovely and well-appointed, the breakfast offered an assortment of fresh fruit and prepared items, the shuttle took us to dinner and elsewhere, etc. It is also a treat to be downtown and able to walk to galleries, restaurants, cafes, etc. LQF arranged for a driver to take us around to the wineries one day and he (Brad) was fantastic... well worth the additional cost for a day of wine tasting and sight seeing. He followed our itinerary, but also made some wonderful suggestions for olive oil tasting, cheese tasting, etc. Read less

Upon arrival we discovered we had been upgraded to the most beautiful suite as we were celebrating our anniversary. The staff was incredibly helpful and kind, the rooms absolutely gorgeous and the location can't be beat.

From the moment the gates opened, we were welcomed by the Duty Manager and that set the standard for our 2night stay. Management and staff could not have been more helpful. Taking us to lots of different venues in their private mini bus collecting us at times that suited us. They lifted and laid us which was just brillant. Our room was beautiful, the most luxurious sheets I have ever slept on. The attention to detail great. The breakfast was freshly cooked and plenty of it. Thank you Roger and staff for a great stay would really love to come back and visit. Read less

Went here for the honeymoon and the staff were amazing helpful in booking dinner etc. The only issue I had was we were given house 15 which is beautiful in its own right the problem is it's on the walking route so everyone walking past looks in so for privacy need to have curtains drawn at all time which is a shame.

Went here for the honeymoon and the staff were amazing helpful in booking dinner etc. The only issue I had was we were given house 15 which is beautiful in its own right the problem is it's on the walking route so everyone walking past looks in so for privacy need to have curtains drawn at all time which is a shame. Have a small gym on premises with treadmill cross trainer and weights. A nice pool (not heated sadly) but lemon water or mint water available beside it for sunbathers. So some fabulous touches. From staff and style think 5 star is justified. Read less

Stayed here for our last night in South Africa, the location in the center of the great little town of Franschhoek is ideal yet it is quiet and not to busy.

Stayed here for our last night in South Africa, the location in the center of the great little town of Franschhoek is ideal yet it is quiet and not to busy. We had a fantastic room, one of the four quarters suites, which was excellent. Very big suite with a balcony and outside sitting area, large lounge and bedroom, good bathroom and dressing room. Very clean and well appointed. The staff were as usual very attentive. We also had an excellent meal in the Protege restaurant and excellent breakfast there the morning after. Can’t recommend highly enough. Read less
