4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2013 via mobile

Lovely little rooms off cute courtyard! Nice breakfast in the morning - lovely setting in vineyards with nice views. Well located can walk to town. Cute town with shops and restaurants!
Area felt like Provence France!
Close to vineyards!

Very small B&B . In the middle of vineyards . Decent rooms . However there is no room service here and it's just a very quiet place. Would recommend it if one wants to get away for a while. Located in the valley has great views of the mountains around it. Would recommend it's a great stay but it's more suitable for older couples and less for young ones.

Really delightful B&B with terrific attention to detail, all set in an exquisite vineyard. Siutuated on the edge of town it is a ten minute walkj to the main sy in Franchhoek. We stayed in the honeymoon suite which was enormous and beautifully fitted. Wine produced on estate delicious and very reasonably priced, we bought a bottle (Merlot 2006) and drank it outside in the evening sun, pre dinner. Helpful receptionist booked us a table at Rocca nearby (terrific food) and arranged for us to be picked up by a lovely lady called Jackie who drove us there and back (kindly paid for by the restaurant which was apprciated). Breakfast in a courtyard was top notch and our only regret was not staying longer.

Room Tip: The honeymoon suite is worth every Rand!

The moment we drove down the driveway into this Establishment we knew it was going to be a real treat! With the mountain range framing this amazing property the location is to die for.
Only a very short distance from the Main Street, it is also set back far enough that one feels like you are left alone to really enjoy the countryside. My mum and I shared a gorgeous twin room with both sides opening out onto a picturesque scene. Everything about the property or room has been thoughtfully created. Breakfast was delicious and great choices for cooked options. The highlight for me was allowing myself time to explore and go for a late afternoon and morning walk enjoying the surrounds. It was truly magical & both mum and I agreed we could have stayed there for much longer! The views and position for me are a real winner!! It's a working farm, so you "may" hear a tractor in the distance for a moment, as on my walk but this only adds to the charm. It is not just a place for show, it is a real working vineyard that has a wonderful vibe.
.... Oh and did I mention the views and location?!! Definitely bringing my husband back!
I loved this place.

We stayed at Auberge on the recommendation of our travel agent in Cape Town and are certainly glad we did. Driving up to this historic house one might expect the rooms to be simply furnished but at last our room was anything but that. We had the Honeymoon Suite and it was in every way one of the most beautifully furnished rooms we could imagine. I assume the other rooms although probably smaller are also very nice. The manager and another woman who manned the office at times were very helpful recommending restaurants and arranging a taxi each evening. In addition they booked us a half day winery tour with a fellow who did an excellent job at a very fair price. Auberge Clermont is about a mile out of town which insures one's stay will be quiet. Vineyards surround the buildings and the mountains can be seen in the distance.

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.

Room Tip: There is a Villa for families if needed.

What an awesome find for our honeymoon. We felt our time and place was our own. The views were exceptional and our room was exquisite. No expense spared. Underfloor heating, sunken bath, rose petals. Everything was perfect. Breakfast was awesome along with an interesting chat with the owner. Thank you so much for making it such a memorable experience.

We asked to see other rooms for future reference. All were unique and individual and I would happy to stay in any of them!

Room Tip: Honeymoon suite is outstanding

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
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. Our dedicated team looks forward to welcoming you! ... more   less
