“Warm Welcome and Professional Staff”
Reviewed 3 June 2013

This secluded hotel nestles in beautiful gardens - a tranquil setting amidst the general buzz of Franschhoek. A comfortable bed,a spacious bathroom and good wifi contribute to the enjoyment of the stay. Breakfast can be taken in a vine-clad patio in a pretty garden.The cooked breakfast is delicious and made to order. The tropical fruit, scones, and granola are fantastic. In the evenings and on chilly mornings there is a warming fire in the grate on the patio.
Owing to an error, by the internet booking agency we were unable to have the room we had originally booked. As compensation by the hotel (it was no fault of theirs) we were given an extra night at no additional cost.
The 8/5 course tasting menu was very expensive and I personally would not recommend it, particularly as there are so many excellent restaurants in the area. The dining-room surroundings were anodyne and there was too much hyperbole given by the staff when introducing each dish e.g. a long narrative about a single langoustine languishing in a little sauce.

You are a vegetarian or non vegetarian..a food lover has to visit le quartier francais.. the Common room and the Tasting room - 2 restaurants serve the best food ever. The hotel is just perfect, very tastefully done and I say.. its a must for a honeymooner!

Le Quartier Francais an established favourite destination in the Cape Winelands village of Franschhoek, so ably run by owner Susan Huxter and her team, provides convenience, comfort, great dining and modern charm, with every facility one could wish for. Colouful individually decorated rooms and suites at this Relais & Chateaux member property with great concierge service and advice to travellers on lesser known attractions in this region is well received, Don't miss the adjacent art gallery iArt, an indoor and outdoor space with very interesting pieces next to the hotel's own small cinema 'The Screening Room'. A must too is their nearby restaurant for lunch - 'Bread & Wine' on Moreson Farm, great food and wine and a deli plus wine tasting and sales.

Room Tip: The Pool Suite is a spacious enclave with its own pretty verandah, garden and pool

Le Quartier Francais (LQF) was an amazing place for me and my wife to really start our honeymoon at. After spending our first day visiting several of the areas wineries our wine guide pulled up to LQF, the staff were waiting for our arrival and our amazing room (# 2) was a perfect oasis for us to recover from our days journey. The staff was unbelievably and that anything was asked was taking care of immediately. The food, where to start, is was simple the best food that my wife and I have ever had. To top it off the staff provided a brilliant turn- down services with nice little notes left for us and on our last night they lite our room with little candles. If you are visiting the SA winelands, Le Quartier Francais is the place to stay at.

The quality strikes you from the moment you walk through the front door. The decor is fun, colorful and very interesting. Every room in the hotel is decorated differently and it has quality finishing touches.

The professional staff all come across and well-trained and they all have that Cape friendliness. They bend over backwards to make you feel welcome. I felt like an absolute queen staying there - thank you Susan and all the staff!

Whoops....a review I submitted for this hotel somehow went under another local hotel. It should have been a review for this one and not The Last Word Hotel. Not sure how it happened. Anyhow Le Quartier Francais is brilliant. The accommodation, food and staff .....all of the highest level. The Tasting Menu and wines were a real treat....a real taste of Africa, Just could not fault this hotel. Wonderful start to my holiday.

Room Tip: Room one......great views and close to reception.

Understated luxury delivered with charm and good taste. The arrival via the car park is not a wow factor but once in the enclave set amongst beautiful gardens around a pool you feel you have entered somewhere special. The staff are delightful and the whole ambience and experience perfection.
