Absolutely gem of a find! Great location - 10 mins walk into centre of Franschhoek, gorgeous facilities - large suite style room with great en-suite (both shower and separate bath were plus for us golfers!), loads of space and beautifully clean! Bed was king size - and very comfy. Beautiful breakfast served in almost afternoon tea style with platter of continental offerings prior to cooked to order hot food. Special mention to the staff - Ellen was amazingly helpful and after local restaurant recommendation offered to phone up and book us table so we were guaranteed a table with view of sunset. If you are staying in the area, I would compel you to book here as I can’t see how anything else would be better. We hope to be back at some point on our next visit to South Africa
