We stayed in July and were there during Franschhoek"s Bastille Day celebrations. The check in was easy and we got great advice on places to eat and things to do. The rooms were lovely with a very "french country" feel. There was a small, private swimming pool for our two rooms but we didn't use this as it was winter. The rooms which were on the ground floor opened out onto verandahs and a garden. This quickly became the place for evening tea and early morning, pre breakfast coffees. Breakfasts were served and were delicious. The vineyard setting through which you were encouraged at the check in desk to walk for both pleasure and exercise, was beautiful. Auberge Clermont was a good base for enjoying the town.
Even though the check out time was at 12md, we were encouraged to leave our things in a room while we went into town. We were able to also have full use of the room to freshen up before we finally departed at 4pm. This enabled us to really enjoy the last of the Bastille Day fun in the town.
The hotel is small and intimate with really helpful staff. The Lounge is cozy with a large fireplace. I would recommend this hotel unreservedly.

- Auberge Clermont is a luxury guest house situated at the foot of the Franschhoek Mountains, on a picturesque wine and olive farm. Just a 10-15 minute walk from town, its position offers you the laid-back peace and quiet of a working farm with the bustling local high street virtually on your doorstep. Tastefully decorated rooms each reflect the tranquility of peaceful surroundings. Rooms offer mini-bars, coffee machines and tea trays; with small extra touches to make your stay even more enjoyable. Climate control in each room includes air conditioning and under floor heating in winter to ensure your utmost comfort. Free high speed wifi is available in all the rooms, the self-catering villa and the public lounge - which is also where our delicious Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz and award-winning olive oil are available for purchase. In summer, delicious breakfasts are served in the courtyard under a grand old oak & in winter guests dine in the breakfast room. If you feel like taking things slowly, laze under another old oak tree with a book,or by the pool, whilst enjoying the incredibly beautiful scenery. Or, you could go for a gentle stroll amongst plum orchards, olive groves and vines to where a gentle brook winds its way across the farm. If you're feeling slightly more energetic, a game of tennis might just do the trick. Of course, we offer advice and recommendations on the best places to visit in the valley and will provide you with everything you need to find your way around town and to wonderful local wineries, restaurants and places of interest.
