Booked a stay for Oct '21 with free cancellation. Cancelled in Jan '21; 3 months later still waiting for my money back despite several requests. The only response was to offer a voucher instead of a refund which I politely declined.

Me and my fiance stayed for 4 days at this amazing place, all I can say is wow!! The view from our room was outstanding the service and customer care given was on point as well.

It was a perfect mini break for hubby and I in the Franschhoek area. Ideally situated, well kept grounds begging for exploring, attentive staff, lovely large rooms and bathrooms. Will even recommend this to friends.

perfect location, quiet and with wide views of the surrounding mountains. Even though you feel like you’re away from everything, you’re actually conveniently close to everything (restaurants, wine farms, wine tram - we never drove for longer than 10 min). very comfortable, clean and spacious rooms... Our top pick for a franschoek getaway.
