Last weekend I had the absolute pleasure of spending 2 nights at the very cute & oh-so-beautiful Franschhoek Boutique Hotel.
Conveniently situated right in the center of the Franschhoek village, the hotel is walking distance from top restaurants (we all know that Franschhoek is a must-see foodie destination), gorgeous wine estates, art galleries, and various quirky shops.
For example, while we were there we tried out Foliage (rated the number one restaurant in Franschhoek on TripAdvisor at present), we did the wine tram, and we got ourselves pampered over at Franschhoek Hair & Beauty without needing to use our car once! #LoveThat Oh and don’t worry, I’ll do separate posts to cover these, so do keep an eye out. For now the focus is on our gorgeous home base for the weekend…
As far as their accommodation options go – they have 6 plush & elegant 25sqm boudoir boutique rooms, each decorated in a unique style. We stayed in the Aztec room which has a very contemporary style with Aztec inspired geometric touches.
So as I mentioned above, the hotel is right in the center of town, just off the main road. In fact you can enter via main road as they have an entrance situated on the square you’ll find at 32 Main Road, right next door to a restaurant by the name of Allora:
Here’s a look at our room:
- Complimetary Wi-fi
- Mini Bar Fridge and wine cooler
- Heated flooring and towel rails
- Morso contemporary fireplace
- Beverage and Bar Station
- Full bath and shower facilities
Breakfast, which of course is included in your stay is a tough choice because everything looks sooooooo good. They start you off with some fresh fruit, cold meats and baked goodies, and then you also get to order from their breakfast menu.
If I had to summarise why the Franschhoek Boutique Hotel is a must, I would say it would come down to the following key things:
- Location, location, location
- Gorgeous rooms with a home-style feel
- Attention to detail (both from a service perspective and the little extras in your room)
- And they truly have the loveliest team I’ve ever come across who will look after your every need…
As far as their rates go, you’re looking at:
- Winter Rates from R2,600
- Summer Rates from R 3,500
At the moment you can get a room (double occupancy) from R2800 to R3900, and for single occupancy from R2950 to R3500 per night.
Just some items to note:
- Max Adults – 2
- No children under 16
- Bed & Breakfast
To make a reservation, you can contact the hotel on:
Tel: +27 21 876 2453
Fax: +27 (0)86 461 9488
Or you can check availability and book via their online booking form over here.
And then you’ll find them here:
- C/O Daniel Hugo & Van Wijk Street
(this is where you’ll find the parking, which is FREE btw – there’s none of that sneaky extra charges stuff here)
Do it… It’ll be so good for your soul. Trust me. I mean we felt like we were away for much longer than just the two nights, and as far as weekends away go, this one has topped the charts.
A BIG BIG BIIIIG thank you to the FBH team for looking after us so well. We honestly did not want to leave…
