We stayed here for a weekend away and having stayed in this town several times over the past 20 years, this was luxurious and excellent value for money. Perfect for those wanting to stay just outside of the main town well allowing for long early morning runs.

Out of all the places I've ever stayed in the world, this has to be one of my very favourites. The most beautiful location, wonderful accommodation, and fantastic staff. Already dreaming about future visits.

we enjoyed our overnight stay after a birthday party nearby. The accommodation was nice and comfortable and will consider it again if they pep up their breakfast. The breakfast unfortunately got a 3 out of 10!

The house thatch has been newly redone and gives a slight "fresh Grass"smell which will disappear over a short period of time.

We did the trail run in Franschoek and stayed the weekend. The staff at the Country House ensured a packed breakfast was in our room the night before as we had to leave early Saturday morning for the run. Wonderful privacy, fully equipped with everything we needed and easy access to all the wine farms area and to the town.... More

The surroundings and views are incredibly beautiful, as is the manor house, although the patio where we had our lunch lacked that "warm" atmosphere. Having said that, the quality of food made up for this. A nice touch is that half portions are available, roughly at half price. The prawn curry was extremely tasty, as was the spicy beef stew,...
