Somerset West, South Africa138 contributions135 helpful votes
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.

Every year for our wedding anniversary we go to some great location in the western cape for a couple of days. Enjoy good food and great locations. This year with a bit of nervousness we chose a Protea hotel. We wanted to be in the town of Frranschoek, so this seemed to be beat located to get around by foot. It was a great choice. A fully restored and modernised traditional building. First class rooms and hospitality. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic there were only a few couples and one family in the hotel. Which made it quiet and tranquil. We loved the modern and sophisticated decor. The hotel has a Husser Grill in the hotel. This is used to serve breakfast and any other meals or in room dining requirements. I travel a lot and liked the breakfast. Not the normal buffet breakfast. Starts off with a continental platter of fresh foods, followed by ordering any hot breakfast. I couldn’t manage a hot breakfast as the continental breakfast was enough. We also had a great dinner at Husser Grill. Easy to get around in town on foot from the hotel.
