Le Quartier Francais

Reviewed 1 September 2014

We were upgraded to a quarters room, which had separate living room and bedroom areas along with a stocked bar. We had windows on four sides and a nice terrace outside our room. What really puts this place over the top is the Tasting Room, where we had one of the most creative, beautiful, and delicious dinners ever.

The other reviews say it all, but I specially enjoyed the cocktails and tapas at the bar. The bar manager is a very efficient and friendly lady - we enjoyed going there for a drink almost every night.

For the price, m expectations was not met. Overall it was a good experience and breakfast was great, but in comparison to other accommodation available in Franschoek, it does not offer the extra you would expect at the price.

I recently stayed at Le Quartier Français and WOW! I love that the rooms are so luxurious and comfortable, yet unpretentious. It was cold and rainy during our stay, but with a fire going and sipping on wine in the room we didn't feel like we were missing out on anything. The fruit syrup in the mini bar is delicious!!! We had dinner at The Tasting Room and I can confidently say that I'll never be the same. The team really challenged my perception of food and wine. It isn't just dinner in a tranquil setting, it's an absolute culinary experience. Christine and Jenny at the front desk are so warm and friendly. Well done LQF, you've got a winning recipe.

Although not cheap, this is a top quality, classy hotel and they didn't put a foot wrong in our view. We had an Auberge room (no 8) which had an outstanding view of the mountains and was large and charming. Had a ski lodge feel to it with an open fire which was lit for us on the cool winter's evening. Heated bathroom floors are a nice touch too.

The breakfast in the Garden Room was included and outstanding, maintaining the standards of the Tasting Room restaurant next door. The view from our table was beautiful although we were very lucky with the weather.

No gym facilities but this is a retreat all about relaxation and exploring the charms of Franschhoek. Staff were excellent. Five stars rating without any question.

My husband and I were lucky enough to enjoy three fabulous nights at LQF. From the moment we arrived, we received impeccable service from the charming and friendly staff. Our room was gorgeous with a large seating area, a very comfy bed and a well appointed bathroom. There were lots of little touches that made LQF something special such as a hot water bottle placed in our bed at turndown service, a fridge containing complimentary soft drinks and wine, a coffee machine, a welcome note in our room and a good night note on the mirror in the bathroom. Breakfast was a real treat with a selection of buffet items followed by a hot breakfast cooked to order.
The bar served some of the best cocktails that I have ever tasted and was warm, trendy and friendly. The location of LQF is also great, right on the main road in the centre of town, but there was absolutely no road noise in our room which overlooked the pool. LQF epitomises the best of the Relais and Chateaux brand, great food, service and accommodation in a beautiful setting.

Room Tip: We were on the first floor overlooking the pool and there were absolutely no negatives about it.

My fiancée booked us in for a night at LQF for my birthday last week. It was truly an amazing experience. When I arrived the entire staff knew we were there to celebrate my birthday and I had birthday wishes from nearly every staff member I ran across. They even left a had written note saying happy birthday in our room.

The room was very luxurious with a large sitting area and a huge bathtub. Under floor heating everywhere and a cosy fireplace. The bar (and the rest of the common areas) has recently been remodelled and looks very clean and modern yet warm. Great cocktails and bar snacks. Also great service in the bar.

Breakfast the next day was also great with a nice mix of quick items laid out on a table for those in a hurry and a large section of hot breakfast items to order.

Overall a great experience. Thinking back on it a few days later I can not think of anything negative about our night there.

Also there was free WIFI everywhere with great coverage.
