We have just spent two nights here and have to give it top marks. The area is stunning and the views are amazing. We ate here the first night and the food was very good. The staff are friendly but not over bearing.
The only downside is the pool which is very small.
The receptionist was exceptionally helpful and did our bookings and made all our enquires for us.
Most comfortable bed ever.
Would highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel have breath taking views

The Villas seems to be separate from the hotel and run independently as the Franschoek Villas,though there is no such signposting from the mainroad.We booked through BOOKING.COM and they advertised both the "Franschoek Valley Villas" and "L'Ermitage".The Villas are self catering and quite nicely presented and spacious,though they suffer from dampness and have been neglected so needs a lot of work(they are currently busy working on the problems).Our Villa looked out on the dam and had a big balcony where we enjoyed sitting and having a glass of wine.There is a pool on the premises and some of the Villas have small pools too.We found that there was nothing on the premises to do and that the walk to town was a bit to far.I do believe the hotel has a restaurant but we could not find out if it was in operation despite emails,so booked at another eatery in town.In Franschoek the good eateries fill up fast and it is recommended that one book as long beforehand as one can.We liked the quiet surroundings but thought the location a bit far out of town.Would book here again,though.

Room Tip: ask for the units that have been renovated.

Every moment of our stay here was wonderful and I wish we could have stayed longer. It is a fairly modern development just outside of Franschhoek, involving both the hotel and a number of private villas, all of which are beautifully designed and landscaped, surrounded by lavender, roses and wisteria and with stunning views of the mountains. It may not be the most historic of sites, but it was stunning, with great character and attention to detail - and I appreciated the discreet solar panels and turbines in the parking area. I also appreciated how peaceful it was, a lovely respite from the shops and bustle of the town, and much less of a blatant tourism machine than many of the well known places in town.
We arrived early and were greeted by a very friendly and efficient receptionist who offered us complementary juice or champagne, and arranged towels for us so we could wait by the pool. The pool itself is small, but very attractive (a bit like swimming in a fountain in Versailles), surrounded by flowers, and was quiet on both days we were there - in peak holiday season. We stayed in the honeymoon suite, which was huge, comfortable and luxurious with a lovely balcony with views of the mountains. However, the food was the highlight for us. We ate lunch here twice and loved it. A stunningly beautiful and peaceful terrace, with attractive gardens leading down to a lake, with swifts and wagtails to entertain us. The service was impeccable and the menu was great. We enjoyed the most amazing wine, duck salad, veal tongue, and steaks, and when we had finished, relaxed and enjoyed coffee on the shady sofas. It felt like a few hours of paradise. I should also complement the staff, who were all incredibly helpful and professional. We had a late check out and they arranged a room for us to freshen up after lunch at no extra cost.

Had a excellent stay in one of the Chateau rooms on a honeymoon visit to SA. Well appointed room with great views. Excellent food and a good wine list with great outdoor dining. A real find. Peaceful and relaxing.

My partner and I had a one night stay at the hotel L'ermitage on Christmas Day 2013, the rooms where excellent, the staff helpful and attentive, the scenery was out of this world, I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the wine regions of the Cape.

Room Tip: All rooms appear to be excellent
