We stayed in Country House & Villas as the second stop on our honeymoon from 31st March - 3rd April. We stayed in one of the garden cottages which is close to the restaurant Monneaux. The cottage was split over two levels and had a bedroom and bathroom downstairs and a living room with two sofas and a balcony upstairs.
The cottage was the largest room we stayed in on our honeymoon and had a great view over the vineyards from the upstairs balcony where you could see the Wine Tram trundle past and wave every evening!
The cottage was a little tired in its decor, other-wise this would have been a 5 star review. The carpets in particular were shiny and had lost all of their bounce and the outside looked like the cottages themselves could do with a paint.
Other than that the staff were great, we ate in Monneaux on our first night which was tremendous and the breakfasts were first rate. They had a large buffet table laid out and you could also get cooked breakfasts from the menu.
The hotel itself is a little outside of Franschhoek and the hotel advised we didn't walk, but they do have a handy free shuttle service that will come and pick you up from wherever you are in Franschhoek. It seems well organised with most places knwoing the drill, ringing the hotel to come and collect you.
Overall, it was a good stay just a little short of 5 stars but not by much.
