We decided to get away with our little 4 legged child and booked a suite. Well we were presently surprised. We had suite 8 with our own plunge pool & private deck. Our room was charming in a lush French farm house way with beautiful art work & pieces of furniture and fresh crisp white linen on the bed. Beautiful...

Beautiful guest house, perfectly equipped. Huge room and bed. Lovely decoration. Bathroom with heated floors and towel rack. The breakfast couldn't be best, all kind of eggs preparation, fruits, cheese, breads, etc. Kind staff. Highly recommended!

We spent three nights here and fell in love with the place. For us it was perfect from start to finish. The cottages are beautiful- we stayed in number 3 which was great as it was detached, but from what I could see they were all of a high standard. The pools were great to dip in and the views...

This was an absolutely charming find and a great way to end off our South African adventure. The rooms here are extremely large and very luxurious, with super comfortable beds and great linens. It is also hard to beat waking up amid a working vineyard every morning, the views are gorgeous and the air fresh and crisp. The best part...

Love Franschhoek, quaint, pretty little town, a lot like being in Europe. Worth a visit, lots of places to stay, and especially to stay at La Petite Dauphine. Good food and wine, lots to experience. Worth spending a few days there.

Lovely setting and a fantastic room. Very comfortable with all the extras you can expect from a 5 star facility. The TV choice could be better. breakfast was fantastic at the Bon Bon café. Expensive but quite lovely.

Spent two nights at the hotel. It is a beautiful establishment especially if you want to be on your own since the accommodation is situated in the extensive grounds/orchards. Some people may not like being several hundred yards from the main building but we really enjoyed our time there including having a "chicken" at the breakfast table. A little expensive...
