All the rooms offer features and facilities expected of a first class hotel, and a almost all the rooms lead out onto private balconies or private patio with magnificent views. The Villa Suites offer the ultimate in luxury and indulgence. Each suite has a separate lounge and bedroom, and entertainment facilities, including a large TV, individual satellite TV, DVD player, music system, and Internet connectivity, two private patios or balconies, two air-conditioners, underfloor heating, fireplace and much more. A complimentary sherry can be enjoyed in one of the guest lounges alongside a crackling log fire, creating a welcoming atmosphere in winter.

During summer, guests can laze at one of the two pools with beautiful mountain vistas, visit the boutique wine farms in Franschhoek, or stroll in the charming town found by the French Huguenots. The in-house Monneaux Restaurant, voted as one of the top Restaurants in South Africa, has become known for its innovative Modern French Cuisine, prepared with fresh, well sourced ingredients and is exquisitely presented.

A-la-carte lunches are served on the magnificent new fountain terrace whilst dinner is served in the understated, yet elegant, dining room or enclosed verandah.

Attention to detail and friendly personal service completes the experience at this fine country retreat.

The accomodation at Franschoek Country House & Villas is impeccable with amazing and attentive staff.The breakfast was also amazing with great variety etc.The in-house Monneaux Restaurant, however cannot be recommended at all. Services was great but food was way below par. I cannot understand what the fuss is about, but I've eaten at the best restaurants in South Africa, and this is not one of them.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere and character is very nice. It was a good base for us to explore Franschhoek for four days to celebrate my wife's birthday.Otherwise rooms very comfortable. Can recommend to other people and will come again.

Great rooms, fine restaurant (although 'one of the best tables in South Africa' might be slightly exaggerated). The staff made our stay their very pleasant, the service level was exceptionally good. The garden villa rooms are very comfortable.

Staff were very efficient (a bit too efficient in that the morning we were leaving the towels disappeared before we had checked out!) Pool area is very weak especially when there are children there as they commandeer the heated pool which is small. Breakfast was extremely good. Finally the hotel were really good with transport into Franschhoek.

We had a wonderful two nights at the Hotel, we loved the gardens, our room and the food was delicious. We hope to be back before too long. We would certainly highly recommend the Hotel!
