Franschhoek Country House & Villas

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 April 2013

My wife and I stayed here for one night in January 2013. I am sorry we did not stay longer, because the countryside around Franschhoek is gorgeous and also because the hotel is so pleasant. We were particularly impressed by the visibility and attention of management and staff. The hotel has a very relaxed atmosphere, almost like an old-fashioned guest house, and breakfast was excellent. We did not dine in the hotel, but management laid on a car to take us into central Franschhoek and to collect us when we were ready to go back. Definitely a place to return to.

From the moment we arrived, right through to check-out, the service was among the highest level I have ever encountered. The hotel manager walked us through the grounds (which used to be a perfumery) and showed us to our room, which included a large balcony overlooking the terrace area of the restaurant, a nice touch.

The bed was huge, comfortable and the room provided ample space, especially the bath! My one, and only gripe is that some of the furnishings, especially the doors, are in need of some repair

We dined at the restaurant, which apparently is among the top establishments in Franschhoek, and the food lived up to its billing. I went for the Ostrich Carpaccio followed by the Kingklip - both very good, especially the starter. The breakfast buffet and the hot food in particular, was exceptional.

The staff are all highly trained and guest satisfaction is paramount, it is evident here. The pools were of a decent size, but too cold!

To summarize, this is a fantastic setting in the heart of the great winelands.

As others noted, staff was simply great. Always helpful, and cheerful all the while. We ate in the restaurant one evening, and had a fine meal. The breakfasts were much better than most restaurants; the room was very clean and spacious. All in all, we would highly recommend this property.

The FCH&V was a terrific place to stay and tour the wine lands. The staff were brilliant and couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable and the villa suite contained everything that we could possibly need. We ate in the restaurant one evening and the quality was excellent as was the service. The only peculiar thing was the wifi limit per day, odd but it didn't cause any real issues.

We loved our stay at Franschoek Country House and villas. The staff was superb and very attentive to our needs. Our villa suite was elegant and comfortable. Absolutely 5*. We took the wine train for wine tasting and everything was so well done and the So African wines are incredibly good. We only have positive comments. Well done Franschoek Country House and Villas! We hope to return some day.

My wife and I stayed at the Franschoek Country House and Villas for only one night, but would have gladly stayed for much much longer. The room and amenities were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent, offering a full spread of cold options and a menu of hot options once you sit down.

My wife's only complaint was that her manicure done at the spa took too long and she didn't like the results. My only complaint was that we had to leave after one night, and didn't have a chance to try the restaurant on site or relax at the pool.

This hotel is definitely not cheap, but the facilities and service are top notch and we'd love to go back again.

We had a delightful stay of three nights at the end of February as part of a Golden Wedding tour. The 'Luxury Suite' lived up to its description and the stay was very relaxing, with superb service and very helpful managers. We loved the town and hope to return.
