From the moment we arrived we were treated in a very special way. Our Merlot room was superb, customer service and staff exceptional. Our every need had been catered for. We had the upper flight wine tasting followed by dinner at the Country Kitchen, the only criticism of the food was the size of the portions which in our opinion...

The highlight of our trip to South Africa. We were simply blown away by the level of service and the actual hotel and its surroundings. HavWe have stayed in many top hotels around the world and this is easily up there with the best of them. Thanks to all the staff who made our stay such a pleasurable one.

As we were leaving Franschhoek we decided to pop in to Sir Richard Brandon's wine estate. How impressed we were with the amazing setting, high in the hills overlooking Franschhoek. The wine tasting was a first for us and we were surprised at how inexpensive it was. It would have been nice to stay for lunch but time was short....
