La Franshoek I should definitely say is by far the best winter holiday accommodation I have been to and when I say that I don’t just mean that they are great in winter only but for me they were absolutely ideal for a winter getaway.
We arrived the Friday evening and were welcomed by very friendly staff at reception who checked us in within a matter of minutes, no waiting time or any admin fuss. The fire place close to the reception area warms the entire reception area and makes you feel like you at home. Once we were checked in, they escorted us to our room and took our bags up. It was extremely cold that Friday with a cold front that hit Cape Town, when we got to our rooms the staff set the aircon and under floor heating prior to our arrival so by the time we got there it was cosy and warm.
The carpet and soft bedding just adds to the room being more cosy than what it’s supposed to be and immediately made me want to get in bed and snooze away. We had dinner at all restaurants during our stay and the Saturday we spent the day at the market.
I was just surprised that they do not allow irons from their house keeping into the rooms, they collect it from you and charge you for ironing it. Then again that doesnt count if your expresso coffee machine in your room makes the best expresso! I wasnt too bothered about the ironing actually..
Everything were 5 star, the service, the food just everything! I would like to experience it in Summer, the backdrop of the mountains is certainly a sight to return to.
