What a great spot this is with great rooms, food, service etc. It is not in the middle of town, but the staff will drive you in & out of town if you want to leave the car behind.

Echo the other positive reviewers. The hotel is located in s asmall country estate about a mile outside of Franschoek. You can safely walk there in about 15-20 minutes, but the hotel also offers a reliable shuttle service. Couldn't fault the food or service, and loved the spacious grounds. Our "luxury room" was very spacious, with high quality furnishings in... More

You can easily walk into town in about 15-20 minutes, though there is also... More
