We stayed here for three nights after a stay at Ezard House in Camps Bay, Cape Town. This hotel was completely different but very much in keeping with the style of the winelands. Prior to going Charmaine had helped us arrange a number of activities including dinner at Le Quartier Francais, just superb and very reasonable, lunch at Le Petite Ferme which is a must and also a private wine tasting tour, again very well organised and enjoyable.
We stayed in a standard room and it was excellent. The room had a large bedroom with balcony overlooking swimming pools, a large seating area with fireplace and bathroom with separate shower. The public areas were very nice, with complimentary sherry on offer and breakfast was served upstairs from a large lounge, allowing a lovely view from the balcony whilst enjoying the breakfast. The restaurant was good, but not the best in town – both Ruebens and Le Quartier Francais were better.
The hotel is located some 5 minutes drive from the town centre of Franschoek. The town itself is based around one main street which is lovely with some great galleries, restaurants and other shops, it really is a most beautiful town. Smaller that Stellenbosch and Paarl. The hotel is a great base for the whole area, and only being 45 minutes from Cape Town, I would have no hesitation to recommend it.
