This hotel is breathtaking- surrounded by mountains,with greenery and flowers everywhere.. truly one of the most beautiful settings I have seen. Rooms are very nice. Each guest has their own suite ( I think there are 9 total) spread across the property. We found it nice to be able to walk through the vineyards and roam the property. Breakfast is...

I can not recommend this place highly enough. Paradise. I am very blessed to be able to generally stay in high end places when I travel and this place easily compares to the best - in fact I prefer it to most 5/6 star hotels for many reasons - the surrounds are stunning, the attention to detail in the rooms...

When only the best will do, you have to visit here. Lovely large room overlooking the pond and the vineyards and mountains of Franshoek. Great bathroom, fast wi-fi. Everything was right - the best room of our 14 day holiday. Stefan took great care of us and was a great help. I had couple of glasses of Port from the...

As soon as we drove through the gates we immediately fell in love with this place. The gorgeous driveway with the beautiful purple tree at the end with the mountains behind is absolutely stunning. Then we found our suite which was beyond belief. Standing alone in the orchards with its own private plunge pool overlooking a pond and the mountains...

I'm sure that there is an abundance of luxury properties to stay at in the Franschhoek area, but my wife and I fell in love with LPD during our trip along the Garden Route, winelands and into Cape Town earlier this month (Nov 2016). The first thing we saw when we arrived at the property was a huge Jacaranda tree...

Turned up here and they took us to our own cottage with its own lounge/kitchen and massive bedroom and bathroom with his and her sinks. It's beautifully put together with a patio overlooking the Franschoek mountains and a swimming pool. You walk through the vineyard to breakfast. The menu is extensive and you can sit on the patio or inside....

This hotel feels like it is punching when advertising as 5* - the rooms are nice, all the products have labels saying 'use but do not remove from room' implying guests would want to walk off with half a bottle of shower gel! No bubble bath despite lovely bath tubs, the charge for things that most hotels wouldn't - the...

The most fabulous boutique wine farm hidden away in Franschoek. Lovely staff in an idyllic setting. Walking around the vines to breakfast and dinner is a real treat. Couldn't be better. We love it here and will be back

We could not have picked a better place to stay! Everything was amazing from food location and rooms. Basically you have ur own villa great views staff is so friendly and helpful. 5 minutes from town and other great restaurants. We went to a few different towns in South Africa and this was by far one of the highlights. Definitely...
