  • Julie and I thoroughly enjoyed being spoilt in this great little hotel with some really sweet helpful staff; nothing was too much trouble. The views over the mountains around Franschhoek are absolutely breath-taking - the breakfast was awesome and dinner pretty good. The restaurant looks out over the garden, a lake and those super mountains. Our suite was large and very comfortable - a great place to relax. We will return.
