Rose Cottages
Reviewed 25 February 2013

Travel Exclusively African organised our 5 week self drive tour through the Western Cape and Rose Cottages was an excellent example of the quality of the entire experience. Rose Cottages have 3 properties and we stayed at "The Vineyard". The setting is absolutely wonderful overlooking the vines and mountains with a stud farm next door. Total peace and Tranquility. The accommodation was for 5 people although only the 2 of us stayed here. Everywhere was spotless, comfortable, well equipped and had absolutely everything you could possibly need. Franschhoek itself which is a 5 minute drive away is well known for the quality of restaurants and we did try a number of these with Bom Vivant being our favourite in town. We also sampled a Japanese lunch at Okamai on the Glenwood Vineyard which was excellent. Joan is on hand at Rose Cottages for any assistance needed and it was a pleasure to meet her. We would definitely return here

Our family group spent four nights at The Stables.
It is not modern luxury but it is very comfortable,clean and private.
It is also very good value.
The outside space is not the greatest, although the views are spectacular. The outside furniture could do with an update.
We missed Wi-Fi.

Rose Cottages features three options for accommodation and we chose The Cottage – a spacious, self-contained, well, cottage with self-catering facilities, a big bath and shower and great views from the verandah. It was also good value for money and the service was great. I'd definitely stay here again.

The Stable was an oasis for our family, with a private pool and beautiful setting with shockingly stunning mountain views rising up from the vineyard. A lovely home away from home for our 3-day stopover in Franschoek, and Joan was very charming and kind.

Room Tip: The Stable is very private, spacious and great for kids.

We stayed at the Rose cottages (all three the cottages) with our family at the beginning of november for our wedding. We stayed at the cottages for a week and we had the best time we could wish for. Joan is very helpfull, had very good tips and made our stay even better. On our weddingday she even arranged rose pettals from the garden, wonderfull!
The cottages are very beautifull (nicely decorated, large and cleaned every day) and the views are spectacular. The pictures on the website are good, but in real life it's soooo much better!
We really hope to come back again, cause the rose cottages are one of the best accommodations we've ever stayed at. Thanks Joan!

We spent two nights in 'The Cottage' at Rose Cottages. Tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean, and with views to die for - what more could we ask for? We couldn't tear ourselves away from the verandah - it was such a perfect view. Joan is an attentive and gracious host who will go the extra mile to make your stay as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. A thoroughly recommended peaceful haven.

We were recently treated to a night in the Stable Cottage at Rose Cottages. Thank you Joan. You are a gracious host, who had thought of every tiny detail to make our stay a wonderful one. The Cottage is in the most beautiful setting with the horses in the paddocks and the spectacular Franschhoek mountains as a back drop. What a view I could have sat on the verandah all day. My husbands 40th birthday weekend will definitely be a weekend of wonderful memories. Thank you again.
