This was our 4th visit to the Winelands in 5 years ( yes, we love it !) On previous visits we stayed in Stellenbosch & outskirts. We arrived this time after the drive from Kynsna via Swellendam.
I cannot describe our pleasure on arrival. The rooms were great, the pool was lovely, breakfast perfectly fine ( if not a little noisy out on the front terrace). The staff were pleasant & helpful - although we had one 'cock-up' - having asked them to book us a table for lunch at a nearby winery, on arrival they had no record of the reservation. It may well have been their fault & not the Protea staff.
I will be back & will stay at the Protea again. I think people can be too judging of a hotel chain especially in a place like Franschhoek - the culinary capital of the Cape. A good tip - lunch at the Common Room at the Quartier Francais - you'll never get in for dinner. Next visit we will book 6months in advance !
