Really liked this hotel. The grounds and beautiful and the views towards the mountains stunning. The staff were friendly and very efficient. We were particularly impressed by the fact that they found us two good restaurants at short notice at a busy time of year. The hotel shuttle to take you to and from restaurants was great and the driver...

The only problem with this Country House is we only stayed one night. It was incredibly pretty, The mountains as a backdrop were spectacular. The staff was welcoming and very efficient. There were 5 couples and they put us all in one house, which was terrific. No one had a "better room than the others" all were different and charming....

Our first visit to Franschhoek Country House & Villas was on the recommendation of our SA Travel advisor.

My family of 5 had a lovely stay. Our 3 rooms were all large and luxurious. The staff was very professional and accommodating. The dinner we had in the restaurant was very nice. Breakfast on the veranda was delicious!

We were warmly greeted and shown around the hotel. Loved out little cottage. Our outside area backed out onto fields with horses and spotted tortoises in the garden. Lovely spacious bathroom. Ate in the restaurant which was very pleasant and overall really enjoyed our stay. Wished we could have stayed longer in this hotel and in Franschhoek in general. Only...

We stayed 2 nights in a 'luxury room' which turned out to be a very spacious suite with a large lounge, spacious bedroom and big bathroom. This had a separate toilet with bidet as well as a generous shower compartment and a bath tub. There was also a terrace accessible from both the lounge and bedroom. The accommodation was furnished...

I have just returned form a family holiday in South Africa and Mozambique. We spent two nights at this hotel and only wished it could have been longer. We ate once in the restaurant and found the food excellent. We had to leave in the middle of the night and found the Night Porter a star in his own right....

Despite booking a luxury room 6 months in advance, we were allocated what was the worst room in the hotel. It was close to the main road and was very noisy from traffic and water rushing from fountains. It also did not have a balcony. When I questioned the room allocation, I was just brushed aside. Also had to deal...

Dear reviewer We sincerely regret that you did not enjoy the specific room you stayed in. When this was mentioned upon departure the receptionist did advise we would have gladly assisted with an alternative but regrettably it was not brought to our attention at the start of your stay. Regrettably we also did not get a request for a room...

The place has a French country flair, but it is a bit tired and needs a refresh. Our room/cottage smelled stale (maybe had been damp), I feel like paint and some modernization would go a long way. The bathroom was lovely. The hotel is listed as 5 stars, but it's more a 4 star property which in my view means...
