La Cabriere is the perfect place to stay if visiting Franschhoek,

A small boutique B&B set in perfectly manicured, beautiful grounds with stunning European architecturally designed rooms and buildings. The hotel is quiet, peaceful and if you have a morning or afternoon where you aren't exploring the surrounds is the perfect place to relax by the pool.

This was our second time staying here and Lisa was lovely giving us a very personal welcome back. Having stayed in 2 different rooms I can say both of which were spacious and luxurious.

Location wise it is the perfect base as you are situated only a 5 minute walk from the town and main high street so easy to stroll in during the day and only a 2 minute taxi ride home from town in the evening.

I think La Cabriere offers incredibly good value for money in terms of its offering and wouldn't hesitate to go back again!

From the moment we arrived and were given such a warm welcome by Lisa, everything was perfect . The rooms were spacious and comfortable with a nice terrace where afternoon tea was served every afternoon at 4pm . The views of the gardens and surrounding countryside were glorious - there are two swimming pools . Breakfast was very good , everything cooked to order with a good selection of home made pastries . All the staff were charming and helpful and recommended local restaurants and organised taxis . The hotel is about 10 min walk from Franschhoek but it was pleasant walk in the early evening and taxis are easily arranged for return later . There is ample parking space too . We would thoroughly recommend this lovely hotel .

We had a great weekend stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The garden was beautiful and the room was clean, comfortable and tidy. The room is quiet and soundproofed with double glassed windows. The hotel is easy walking distance from the town and some wine farms.

We have been visiting for more than 5 years, the service and staff are so friendly and very efficient. When we arrive it’s like coming to stay with friends as the management team Lisa and Lucy always give such a great welcome, the girls doing breakfast and rooms are also so very helpful and friendly with warm welcoming smiles. We have just finished 2 weeks and have booked rooms for 2020.
We also enjoy meeting old friends who visit around the same time each year and the food in Franchoek continues to amaze with the quality available.

Have just spent 3 nights at this lovely lodging. Beautifully positioned close to the Huguenot monument, it is an easy walk into this lovely town. The rooms, gardens, pool areas and surroundings are very private and delightful - most importantly the management team and staff are very friendly and so helpful. I wish we could have stayed longer!
We will be back! Terry and Sue Wilson.

This well maintained guest house is so well situated in Franschoek,, close enough if you want to walk into the village but gives you the feeling of being right out in the countryside.
Loved the magnificent views from the cottages.
Excellent breakfast with good variety. Great dinner recommendation from Lisa - thank you.

Serene beautiful surroundings, exquisite garden.
Comfortable and welcoming.
Management and staff were well informed, helpful and efficient.
Loved the breakfast.
Only suggestion would be to improve on the quality of the towels in the rooms and provide rusks with the tea in the rooms instead of biscuits.

My partner and I enjoy the wonderful accommodation and setting La Cabriere has to offer. The rooms are well maintained and comfortable with underfloor heating keeping the bathroom warm.

The garden area is a pleasant delight with lots of space for many visitors to relax and enjoy the wonder scenery.

We stayed 3 nights at La Cabriere in February. It is a lovely quiet country house hotel about 5 -10 minutes walk from the town centre. The gardens and pool area are beautifully planted with great views and offer a very tranquil setting after a day out. The rooms are spacious and well equipped. We were welcomed by Lisa who was very helpful in arranging restaurant bookings - although you are advised to do this before you arrive! Breakfast is very good as are afternoon tea and cakes served at 4pm. Definitely recommend.

My husband and I stayed here recently on our honeymoon and it was perfect. The hotel is beautifully kept with fantastic views, pools and service. The rooms are large and very clean and the staff were so helpful. The breakfast was great and ambiance the same. It is a 10-15 min walk into main Franschhoek and taxis were very easy to get from the hotel at night.

We had an issue in a previous hotel before our arrival here and the GM of La Cabriere was so helpful to us and gave us good advice, which we were very grateful for. I would come back in a heartbeat and have already recommended the hotel to friends planning to visit later in the year.
