"Somewhat commercial in feel due to its size alone, Franschhoek Country House faces stiff competition from smaller more boutique hotels that get the best feedback. We find we book it rarely."


Originally a perfumery dating back to 1890, the manor house has been restored and beautifully decorated. The garden is surrounded by vineyards. Although this hotel is extremely good and tends to have very good feedback from its guests, it is not one of our favourites. We prefer places that are a little smaller and that are closer to Franschhoek village.


Franschhoek Country House is set on the outskirts of Franschhoek town and is surrounded by beautiful vineyards and the majestic Huguenot Mountains. 


The 12 villa suites are a recent addition to the hotel. They are very spacious and extremely opulent. They include a lounge, bedroom, ensuite bathroom and two private balconies where guests can sit out and enjoy the views of the surrounding vineyards set against the magnificent backdrop of Franschhoek Mountains. There is a wide choice of rooms at this hotel. The six standard rooms and five luxury rooms in the main building are all extremely comfortable, and most lead out onto balconies or private patios.

The two cottages are ideal for guests with small children. The ensuite bedroom on the ground floor has its own private patio area, while upstairs there is a lounge with a foldout bed and a balcony giving spectacular views over the surrounding vineyards.

Food here is exceptional. The restaurant, Monneaux, frequently features in South Africa’s Top 10 Restaurants. It serves a fusion of Western and Eastern influences, often giving a contemporary twist to classic dishes.


The hotel runs a complimentary shuttle to Franschhoek village, where guests can take the Wine Tram to explore the many vineyards in the area.
