We stayed here in 2007 and enjoyed it so much we decided to stay again when returning to South Africa three years later. A great atmosphere, relaxing, with attentive staff. The pool area is very good but the highlight for us was the food which was excellent. It is great to stay somwhere not too big and that prides itself on personal details. Very helpful staff. If you are looking for great food, wine, location and quiet, this is the place.

We have been on a month long tour of South Africa both land and cruise. When we look back over the trip and review the highpoints - One shines more than the others and that is our stay at the Country House Villas at Franschhoek. Accomodations, Food, Service and central location to the wonderful wine country are just a part of all the qualities of this great establishment.

We stayed here for 2 nights in November. We had 2 rooms on the ground floor of an annexe next to the main house with a vast sitting room with music, sherry and magazines at our disposal. The staff were friendly and helpful. The pool area was well kept with towels and loungers freely available.Breakfast was served upstairs in the main house overlooking the garden with tables inside or outside on the balcony and consisted of a vast array of fruit,pastries, bread, cold meats, cheeses,yoghurts,cereals and a choice of cooked dishes. We chose to eat there the first night and had an excellent meal. The next day we had lunch at La Petite Ferme restaurant in the nearby winery which was superb with spectacular views. Consequently we didn't need much to eat that evening but the hotel was more than happy for us just to have a starter and dessert in the retaurant. The hotel is just outside the village which we preferred and it was just a 10 minute walk away. WE didn't go there in the evenings but a shuttle was available if we had wanted to. Free internet access in the main house. A great 2 night stay!

We stayed for two nights and wished we'd opted for three. The manager was friendly and helpful as were all the staff. We had booked a luxury room, but were delighted to have been upgraded to a villa suite. This definitely had the wow factor! We also had dinner in the hotel restaurant and the food was among the best we had during our three weeks in South Africa. Having read previous negative reviews I am at a loss to understand why they were written. Please do not hesitate to book this lovely hotel.

From the entrance ,the resort does not look like much but it is only when you are given the tour by one of the lovey staff through to your rooms that you get the sense that this place is special. We had a downstairs standard room overlooking the pool area. It was quiet and the rooms were of a very high standard. Our friends had a villa suite which looked amazing. We dined in the Country House restuarant and the meal and service was superb. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We vowed to come back and stay a few days here - one night was not enought !
