This place is a stylish oasis in an already stylish village. From the moment we arrived nothing was to much trouble. On both evenings restaurant bookings where efficiently made. We stayed in suite one which suited us well. Access to the pool but with our own private area with sun beds. Vital when the weather went mad, 40 degrees in...

Well located on the main road in Franschoek within walking distance of shops and restaurants. Very friendly staff, nice breakfast, air conditioned and well stocked rooms. Not quite five star - staff are not always available - but access to good hotel facilities. Maybe a little attention to detail missing?

We travelled to Franschhoek in August for our wedding anniversary where we were fortunate enough to find this absolute gem! Tucked away just off the main road, it is a well maintained and definitely well-thought out hotel. If memory serves it is a Hugenot home that has been lovingly refurbished into this beautiful boutique hotel. The rooms are unbelievable! Spacious...

I think I've run out of superlatives about this wonderful small hotel and its staff. In fact when we couldn't get a room last year(we booked too late) we popped in and asked for assistance and they were so helpful. We had as usual a lovely room. Conrad and Franklin were still there to welcome us. We had booked an...

In the middle of town yet an oasis of calm , the room we had was spacious - probably the biggest room I have ever stayed in! Bed was very comfortable. Staff were very efficient and friendly. I would definitely stay there again.

This hotel is aptly named, as it is the last word in luxury and hospitality. From the moment we entered the hotel, nothing was too much trouble, we were made to feel 'at home'. As we had arrived during the day, they had provisionally booked an evening meal at a few places which if we wanted we could choose one....

We arrived later than expected and Conrad had been concerned enough to try and contact us. We were settled in quickly dismissing check in until the following morning so we could go out to eat, in a fabulous restaurant Conrad recommended. Our room was amazing, spacious, chic, decorated very stylishly with a sitting area, huge bed and the largest shower/bathroom...

Having stayed in the sister hotel in Constantia this hotel was just as good, country house elegance, with large bedrooms/suites very comfortable large bed with crisp white bed linen. On arrival Franklin couldn't have been more helpful with a friendly efficient manner. The hotel is within walking distance to all amenities.

Stayed her for 3 nights just wanted to stay longer, from the moment we walked in we were made to feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble at any time. The room was lovely with our own pool, Franklin made sure everything was perfect for us, service was second to none. Would definitely go again.

We're here with 2 other couples. I has a "pool room" i.e. Their own private pool and a magnificent room. We have an "ordinary" room that is quite magnificent. Luckily for us our room opens onto the residents pool and we have our own "private" conservatory and patio. Tonight when we got back we found individual creme brûlée's on the...
