This hotel was outstanding. The staff were wonderfully friendly and helpful and nothing was too much effort at all. The picturesque location is heaven on earth. This amazing little beauty is not only great for families (and we have two small kids and a baby), but also for a romantic getaway.

What an amazing mini get away. This hotel is situated a few meters away from the main road of Franschoek so we spent a lovely afternoon ambling along going through the shops and ended off with cocktails to watch the sun go down. The hotel was amazing. Really friendly and helpful staff. From the warm welcome at check in, beautiful room that we could not fault to the excellent dinner we had at the hotel restaurant "Husser Grill" The breakfast was perfect - not your usual hotel buffet but held in the Husser Grill, although it's a small buffet, everything you could want was there and the best cappuccinos. We found the staff at Husser Grill very friendly and helpful. They really went out of their way to make the experience memorable. We will definitely be staying with you again. Read less

The hotel is also attached to a restaurant, which was great on a very cold winter's evening. The breakfast, which was included in the room price,… Read more

The hotel is also attached to a restaurant, which was great on a very cold winter's evening. The breakfast, which was included in the room price, was excellent. All over a pleasant experience. The hotel is in the center of town, which makes it easy to park there and walk everywhere. I definitely recommend this Protea Hotel by Marriott Bonvoy. Read less

Beautiful hotel. Very clean and tidy. Bedrooms were large and well presented however I found it hard to sleep with the noise of the frogs outside during the night. The steak in the restaurant is a must. The food here was 10/10 and staff were very friendly and helpful.

Travelled with girlfriends for a weekend wine tasting trip so I never booked the hotel but I was really pleased with the choice. It was situated at the beginning of the Main Street and just a short walk to all the shops. Beautifully decorated, nice large clean bedrooms with good sized bathrooms, it was cold whilst we were there but the ac was great and warmed the room up in no time. There was a nice pool but too cold to swim! Breakfast was really excellent with great hot and cold choices. We had dinner and that was also delicious. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. I’m planning my next visit soon. Read less
