Absolutely loved this hotel. Very conveniently located near the wine tram and has a hussar grill at the hotel. Reception was friendly and housekeeping staff were amazing. The rooms were clean and the bed was comfortable. Will return if I am ever in Franschoek again.

Our base in Franschoek for 5 days we got to use all of the amenities. Laundry service was efficient and relatively cheap. Rooms spacious and well appointed. Wifi fast and always up. Parking safe and easy to access. Check in and check out was seamless. Would definitely stay here again when in town.

We live in Somerset West, but went to a friend's house warming lunch in Franschhoek and we wanted to stay over. So we only stayed one night at this beautiful hotel, but it will definitely be our hotel of choice for any future Franschhoek stays. The hotel ticks all the boxes, from the friendly security detail when we drove into the parking lot, to the professional and warm welcome at reception. The room itself was spacious, spotless, light and bright, with a hugely comfortable king-size bed, block-out curtains and a stunning shower in the bathroom. We had such a good sleep, as it was so quiet and peaceful. All the staff I encountered were lovely and this is such a pretty hotel. I would definitely recommend this and we will be back. Also, the Hussar Grill is onsite so we enjoyed a lovely dinner without having to drive anywhere. Read less
