“Fantastic scenery with comfortable affordable accommodation & service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2014

Great value for money with excellent guest service tucked away on a fantastic vineyard with amazing views. Second time round & this will always be our second home away from Sweden.
It had everything to offer for our family of 5 with the City Centre in walking distance so very convenient in having that glass of wine over lunch time. Even has wi-fi so we could still be in touch with our loved ones via Apples IOS, FaceTime.
Our kids also loved the farms dogs as well as the shaded swimming pool. Wonderful owners & staff, can still smell that barbecued ostrich steaks over the barbecue with a chilled LaMotte Chardonnay overlooking the vineyards!

Room Tip: Fitness centre is a good walk/run around the estate overlooking the vineyards.

We stayed at the Orchard Cottage for two days. Bo La Motte farm is only a ten minute walk from the heart of Franschhoek and the Huguenoten Monument and museum.

The Orchard Cottage is a lovely renovated cottage on the edge of the domain, situated between the vineyard and the orchard. The house has all the necessary facilities but has no wifi. One bedroom was rather small, but the other two are very large.

We were welcomed by the owner and her friendly dogs. She gave us a lot of (honest) tips about restaurants, wine domains, hikes and things to see.

A lovely and quiet place on a very nice domain.

BoLa M, Owner at Bo La Motte Farm Cottages, responded to this review, 29 November 2013
Thanks for your review, we value all responses as its a great way to gain feedback on our farm and cottages. With regards to the WiFi in Orchard, we have recently installed a farm wide system for all cottages except Orchard which unfortunately fell out of the scope of this system being right at the bottom of the farm. For this cottage we are having to install a separate ADSL line which we are still waiting to be installed. This is unfortunately outside our control as we are in the hands of Telkom the national Telecommunications company, we are however chasing our application daily. I'm sorry you weren't able to use it this time, but hope that if you visit us again it will be available.

I am actually a bit reluctant to write this review, as this is such a hidden treasure, I wouldn't want it to become too well known! ;-)
Stayed here for the second time now, in Goose cottage, after renting Goose and Milkwood last year with our family.
Again we were welcomed as old friends, already the email- and phonecontact was very pleasant. The cottages are just lovely, very cosy with comfortable beds, good showers, fully equipped kitchens and a wonderful country decoration. A great place to come home to after a day of winetasting or other activities, be it in summer or winter. Everyday cleaning.
They each have a different feel because of their location, either in the middle of the vineyard, with a magnificent view over the mountains, overlooking the dam, or in a lovely garden with children's playground. But each of very high standard.
Anneke and Lindi are very welcoming and will assist you in any way they can. Wifi is now available in the cottages
Definitely our home away from home in Franschhoek!

Room Tip: Contact the farm to ask advice about the best cottage for your particular needs.

We found Bo La Motte via TripAdvisor. Usually we choose to stay in a hotel for our annual anniversary getaway to Franschhoek, but this year we were looking for something different... and did we find it! I cannot enthuse enough about the amazing Oak Cottage. It has everything you need for a romantic and very comfortable stay. In addition, it has little extras - like the squirrels that scamper across the vines on the front stoep, the rescue dogs that are ever on guard, the lovely view of the new vineyards, etc. And Lindy is just a lovely person who cares deeply about the land. We left with a champagne bottle of "fresh" olive oil from the farm and wonderful memories. We will be back...

We love Bo La Motte! We have stayed there twice and it was consistently good. I like it so much that I actually do not want to tell others about it because an increase in demand may mean that next time they are fully booked! We always book two cottages, and they are comfortably furnished, with electric blankets, romantic fireplaces and everything you need to make your stay comfortable. The views are stunning, the location convenient (though a bit far to walk into town, if you prefer being on foot), and the open areas and playground for kids to play are ideal. It is very professionally run and I can highly recommend it.

We spent a most enjoyable family reunion in three cottages (Milkwood, Goose & Orchard) over a long weekend. Quiet, relaxing and lots of open spaces for the kiddies to play, surrounded by vineyards and orchards. Well-furnished and cosy cottages with log fires, electric blankets etc., serviced daily.
Lindi and Annetjie were very friendly and helpful with lots of tips and suggestions as to what to do.
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Milkwood and Goose were 2 bedroomed cottages and were cozier and warmer than the 3-bedroomed Orchard...

We spend a couple of very relaxing days on the farm and loved everything from the warm welcome (including from the dogs) to the actually pretty large self-catering cottage set right in the midst of vineyards. With 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and an open plan kitchen/living room, we had way more space than we needed. Furniture and decoration were tasteful, comfortable and all looked pretty new.
The views of the surrounding mountains from the veranda are stunning. There are also nice spots around a little pond on the farm, perfect for watching the scenery or birds.
