We have just sadly left the sanctuary of our favourite Chambre Bleu (room 8) at the world class La Residence. Everything about LR is, as I said in my last review, sheer perfection. It is not like staying in a hotel, more like a dear friend's beautiful home. The staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. A request for an in...

We stayed at La Residence for 4 nights in a Vineyard Suite. These are set in the hotel grounds overlooking the vineyards and surrounding hills with their own private gardens. The decor is quite elaborate with some unusual pieces but it all fitted together really well. The dinner menu was a little short of choice (although there was also an...

Stage 3 of My CNY trip to South Africa took us to the wine country of Cape Town in Franschoek region. One word. Spectacular. We were met at the entrance and before even checking in had a glass of light rose thrust into our hands. After the basic formalities were done we were given a quick tour of the property...

This hotel is superb. It doesn't really feel like an hotel more like a (rich) friend's house where you can get immediate and friendly service at all times. Only 11 rooms plus the villas set in stunning beauty. Our room no 3 was extremely spacious delightfully equipped with lots of over the top gold leafy furniture a bit like a...

It is a beautiful place with interesting style and lots of comfort. Service is personal and in keeping with a hotel charging these rates. The food however is a disappointment. Neither of our dinner entrees were even good -- passable is being charitable --breakfast was fine but not impressive given the surroundings (both their opulence and the farmland and gardens...

It's our third time at La residence. Its still perfect. The rooms are great. We have tried 3 rooms and one villa. Room 2 and 3 are great, room 6 amazing. The villa is a good place for the family but we usually prefer the style of the rooms in the main building. The service has not changed over the...

We have been road-tripping through South Africa for a couple of weeks, and have carefully hand-picked eevery single location we stayed at. La Residence was initially not on our itinerary, as it is way pricier than other 5-star properties in the area. However, upon examining the reviews of other travellers, looking through the pictures of past visitors on Instagram, and...

La Residence hit a perfect score on this stay. The food is amazing, the grounds are very well-kept and beautiful, and the room was spacious, clean and unique. The highlight was the staff. From the General Manager Andrew, checking-in on us on numerous occasions to Chef Darius to Garth to Nick to everyone! We would return in a second, they...

We booked to stay at this beautiful hotel for three nights on our trip on The Garden Route. When we arrived they radioed ahead to alert the staff who assembled to welcome us which was not what we were expecting at all and we were rather embarrassed. The room was just beautiful and the view to die for overlooking the...
