Why We Love It:
  • The Views: The hotel lies five minutes up the Franschhoek Pass Road and overlooks the entire valley below. You’ll want to spend the afternoon sipping wine and enjoying the beautiful views from this property.
  • The Staff: Some of the staff we met have been working on the property for over 20 years (even as ownership changed hands) and they were warm, helpful, and proud of their beautiful hotel.
  • The Wine: Despite being a small wine producer, the hotel is known for producing wines of exceptional quality. It offers a full range of whites, reds and rosés.
