Le Franschhoek Hotel & Spa has a lovely setting, nestled under the mountains at the end of Franschhoek Valley. It has all the facilities expected of a 5-star hotel, but we find it rather impersonal. The spa has the potential to be fabulous, yet the feedback we have received has been extremely mixed.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
Le Franschhoek Hotel & Spa is nestled in the heart of the Cape Winelands surrounded by mountain vistas and bordered by leafy vineyards.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
Its 63 rooms range from standard, family and deluxe rooms to 26 suites and two villas. All are tastefully decorated in neutral colours and have views of the gardens, vineyards and the river.
The Camelot Spa, a health and wellness centre, offers a wide choice of treatments including marine hydrotherapy treatments and aromatic herbal sauna. There is even a private outdoor massage garden. There are three restaurants, a swimming pool, and tennis courts.
