We visited Franschhoek during the off season and were actually the only guests in the Marco Polo Lodge. The service was great, and the huge breakfast in the dining room was just wonderful. They suites were luxurious and the scenery of course was absolutely stunning, especially during sunset. We walked through the vineyards and enjoyed watching the animals in the... More

The wine farm is in a wonderful location, i would recommened Leopard Suite to everyone as a wonderful room and quiet location. On arrival and very late in the evening we were met at the suite, unfortunatly due to a mix up the downstairs was instead reserved although i insisted on the upstairs suite due to its reviews, the aircon...

We arrived at the chalets at around 9pm in the evening.We stayed at the Marco Polo Lodge with breathtaking scenery with wild animals and a view of the Franschhoek mountains. The piece de resistance of our trip was the outstanding service provided by the lodge assistants. The staff are extremely polite and helpful and will cater to "most" requests. We... More

We arrived at our beautiful little chalet that's nestled amongst the pines above the main Lodge (we stayed in the Hadida suite) where it was both quiet and peaceful. The scene was breathtaking, with wildlife that was literally right outside our windows; springbok, eland, zebra and even ostriches. Our 2 nights there were perfect and the staff at the main... More

On our annual family vacation we decided to book for two nights in Franshoek so that we could do the local wine farms and enjoy the scenery. We decided to have a break in hotel stay and go self-catering for two of the nights at Chamonix cottages as we know the wine estate and thought we would be in for... More

Fabulous 3 night stay in the Marco Polo Lodge. We were on the executive suite on the left wing... amazing view on franschoek valley. Good breakfast served by two very nice butlers (Anderson and his colleague). 5 min drive from Franschoek centre. We will come back!

I would not recommend the self catering cottages - we were very disappointed / compared to the many places we have stayed in the Eastern & Western Cape (especially in Franschhoek). There was damp creeping up the walls and behind the cupboards, dirty stained couches which I put blankets over, so we could sit on them - we watched TV... More

The last night of our three weeks in South Africa was decidedly the worst - memorable only for the absence of what we'd enjoyed everywhere else. No tea, no milk, no hairdryer, no top sheet, no security, no internet (so couldn't do advance seat bookings for flight home) and over-priced at R700 for a couple. The cottage was very 1950s... More
