"My partner and I have just finished a short stay at your wonderful hotel here in Franschhoek and I have been so thrilled with the experience that I wanted to e-mail you directly to let you know.
From the moment of booking, nothing has been too much trouble for the team here. This was most evident yesterday when upon arrival first thing in the morning we found that we had a flat tyre. This was a potential disaster as I was planning on taking Hannah to Boschendal in order to propose to her in the gardens.
I went to see Christine who sorted the whole thing out for us. From arranging alternative transport to getting the tyre mended, everything was taken care of without any stress or fuss.
The room was fantastic, our massages incredible and the dinner at The Tasting Room beyond our wildest expectations. All this topped with the romantic turn down and the exquisite breakfast this morning. We could not have had a better experience.
Please pass on my sincerest thanks to the team - I left a gratuity to be shared amongst them, but It would not be enough to convey just how grateful I am for making our day so special."
- Ben and Hannah
"We were at Bread and Wine on the 7th of July, where we got engaged. We just wanted to say thank you so much, the food was incredible, the wine amazing and your service, at both the restaurant and wine tasting room was fantastic.
Thank you so much, your part in our special day is so appreciated."
- Robs and Johnny
"Fantastic room, wonderful service. The 9-course meal in The Tasting Room nearly killed my girlfriend but she survived, said yes and is now my fiance! "
- Tom & Laura
"The location, facilities and room were all beautiful but what really stood out for us was how friendly, helpful, efficient and courteous all the staff was!"
- Alessia Coelho
"We were drawn to your chambers by an accumulation os sighs... Accolades of contentment from all who stopped by. We cannot all but try to expose the joy's of "the finer things" to those that pass by"
"The anticipation of breakfast was open me before my head hit the pillow. Sticky Bun ice cream flavour still on my palate. I had to have the sticky bun!! It all paid off- there were still some left, even though it was 10h35 - sticky buns galore. Now why is it my clothes don't fit anymore..."
- Robert Rudophy
"Thank you! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay too and we will definitely be back soon. Stunning situation, rooms gardens with first class service!"

Dear Mrs Janse,
I had the pleasure to eat 3 times in Le Noirmont and just now in Frsnschhoek by Mrs Jansen. You both have the same philosophy about using local indredienrs and are both star cooks and wine lovers in this world. Thank you so much for sharing this! You should once probably connect together and write a book " from Africa to Europe with local flavour and local wine". You really have the same way of "working" and this is exceptionnal. Encore merci de nous faire vivre ce monde magique and for sharing your passion.
With kind regard

Thank you so much for the warm welcome and incredible hospitality during our short stay at Le Quartier Français! The new cocktail lounge is sublime, and the upgrades and changes throughout the property are absolutely lovely. We enjoyed our visit immensely and do hope to be back soon, and next time will plan to visit when The Tasting Room is open!
