The Good: What a beautiful setting and located just outside of town with sparkling wine excellence (Haute Cabrière) just up the road. The decor and space in the 2 beds units is great! Nice short walk around the dam. Pity I can't remember the one ladies' name, great service, but an anomaly. The Bad: Not sure if it was just...

We stayed in the villa. The views of the lake(river) are beautiful. The hotel staff is very friendly. The unit we stayed in (V10) was spacious. The finishes in the room are lovely. Can fault this hotel. Beautiful mountain view!!!!!!!!!!

My partner and I booked two nights. At last minute my partner had to travel abroad on business and i went solo. Our experience was poor: unfriendly welcome, restaurant staff openly share their problems with management of the place (their tips held back, renags on salary promises etc) - uncomfortable. Room had broken curtain that let all light into room...

The rooms are massive, the location is breathtaking as most of the rooms face a lake and a huge mountain. On first impression, it it five stars even though as an architect, I think the decor is neo-classical pseudo-royal on a bit of a Walt Disney side. After a pleasant first impression, it fails incredibly in many details which makes...

Our stay at L'Ermitage was fantastic. The rooms are spacious, tastefully decorated and well maintained. The views from the balcony are exquisite. Location was also great - large number of restaurants as well as the Huguenot monument and museums are within walking distance. Breakfast was good as well. Would definitely recommend L'Ermitage to anyone staying in Franschhoek.

Stayed here for two nights recently. The hotel has the makings of a really smart place to stay - impressive location and buildings and our villa was enormous with large kitchen/lounge and bedroom/bathroom. However the place needs a bit of a shake-up. I know we arrived early - but to be greeted with "you can't check in until 2pm" was...

L’Ermitage has all the prerequisites for a first class stay – it is in a beautiful setting, we had spacious accommodation in our apartment which was well equipped and even had a washing machine. The over sized bath in the bedroom was also a luxury! There were a few elements that let it down though which I’m sure could be...

Helpful staff when we arrived but my husband and I both felt the hotel is in need of a update / upgrade - we anticipated it to be a lot better than it was - breakfast was average - the town of Franchhoek is really worth the visit - we enjoyed eating at Foliage restaurant and browsing the galleries!!

Once again had a lovely Valentines lunch at this lovely hotel, the view is stunning, staff very helpful and the chef always creative. The villas is beautifully decorated and very spacious giving you the feeling that you must stay longer next time! We like the option that you can stay in and cook or order room service. Will definitely visit...

We were looking for a quite last few days of our trip which this resort does give you. Our upgrade into the villa was exceptional with a mountain and lake view from our living room. The reception staff during the evening, day and late night was exceptional with always trying to satisfy every request we had. The downs ranged from...
