Lovely rooms with in room fireplaces and heated floors. Updates were recent and amenities were nice. Onsite spa is available, but limited (one therapist), lots of DVD's available for cool nights by the fire, restaurant was very good. some very unique items in the tasting menu (9 course) and the wines were paired perfectly. I found the breakfast lacking slightly since it appeared there was more interest in presentation than a real morning meal but good none the less. Staff was all friendly and helpful and overall a very nice experience.

Thank you for your review.

We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the rooms, your meal in our award-winning fine dining restaurant - The Tasting Room - and our friendly and helpful staff. We work incredibly hard on our offering, constantly refining and reworking all elements, so it's great to hear when it all comes together to create an enjoyable stay for a guest.

Our on site spa was designed to serve as a small treatment room, something to add a little bit of pampering to a guest's stay. It's definitely not the whole spa experience. Instead going the spa-route we decided to focus our experience efforts on the more usual including: an in house Culinary Concierge who designs bespoke food-related adventures for guests, all perfectly tailored to their individual tastes; an in house art gallery which showcases a range of exceptional South African artist only exhibitions; an in house Screening Room which shows an excellent selection of old and new movies throughout the month.

We are sorry to hear that your breakfast wasn't everything you'd hoped it would. While we do place a great emphasis on presentation it is never more important than taste.

We hope to welcome you back, for another stay, in the not too distant future.

In a small town where every other property seems to be either a restaurant or accommodation this stands out like a beacon. Not that it physically stands out, it is discreet almost to the point of invisibility, but for comfort, service and luxury nothing else comes close. In the form of several "cottages" surrounding the central swimming pool each room is unique, but all are beautifully appointed with good beds, individual furnishings and that little extra style. The bathroom in our suite was terrific, marble floor with underfloor heating (what a joy!), large walk-in shower, full size bath and I wouldn't say the sink was huge, but I've seen smaller baths! Nothing was too much trouble for the constantly smiling staff. Breakfast was excellent and wins my personal prize for the best ever presentation.

My wife and I spent one night at Le Quartier Francais and loved every minute of it. Our petit garden suite was an absolute haven of luxury, the room was spacious with private patio to our own "oasis" of tranquillity in the garden. Our room came standard with fireplace, under floor heating and spacious en-suite bathroom with beautiful finishes. The extensive DVD library at the hotel provided a wide choice for the afternoon movie that we watched in the room on the in-room DVD player with the fireplace lit as we snuggled in bed.

Dinner that night in the Tasting Room was far beyond my expectations. After having read and heard of all the wonderful reviews, I had to see what all the fuss was about and all I can say is the "Surprise Menu" is an absolute must. Each dish in the 9 course menu was beautifully prepared and crafted by Margot Janse and her exceptional team in the kitchen. The African inspired menu "with story" to go showed me why Margot and her team have won so many awards and why this restaurant has the reputation it carries. Our waiters were incredibly knowledgeable clearly explaining every ingredient in every dish whilst the wine pairing was superbly matched and complimented each dish to perfection.

To end off the perfect night of relaxation and decadence what more could you ask for than a lit fire in your room and a hot water bottle in your bed.

Breakfast the next day was no half hearted affair either. The delectable spread of breakfast pastries, fruit and cereals together with hot breakfast and ample fresh coffee was enought o keep us going for the rest of the day.

The perfect end to a wonderful stay.

Thanks to Susan and the exceptional team at LQF for a night never to forget.

My boyfriend treated me to an evening in The Tasting Room and a night at Le Quartier.

The dinner was incredible! The service was unbelievable! The food was an amazing experience. Every course was delicious and I tried things I never thought I'd ever eat. It forever changed my view of food.

After the meal we got led down to our room which was breathtaking. They'd thought of all the smallest details including toothbrushes for us (because we hadn't booked but had enquired about availability following dinner). They did all this without us ever having to ask.

The rooms are just beautiful and very romantic. I will definitely be back and I recommend that anyone looking for an authentic and utterly captivating experience book themselves in Le Quartier.

My husband and I visited Le Quartier Francais for three nights in May.
Anyone seeking world class accomodations, gourmet meals, service that sets a high standard in South Africa; and a quiet getaway for couples; This is it! The Tasting Room was a real treat, and Ici also had great food. The morning breakfast was a great start to the day(and the cinamon rolls were addictive). This is the spot to relax, and enjoy a super location.
