We spent the most amazing weekend at the Franschhoek Boutique Hotel in Franschhoek recently and it seriously ticked all the boxes for us. It was a weekend filled with good wine, yummy food, beautiful views and total relaxation – exactly what we needed.

The Franschhoek Boutique Hotel is situated smack-bang in the middle of the charming little town and is less than an hour’s drive from Cape Town. Nothing beats being able to knock off work on a Friday afternoon and arriving at your weekend destination in time to watch the sun set, settle in and enjoy a bit of down-time before heading out to dinner.

The décor and style of Franschhoek Boutique Hotel is right up my alley and just another reason why I prefer a boutique style hotel to a stock standard hotel chain. The creative and quirky details really left a lasting impression. There are six, 25sqm rooms to choose from and each room has its own unique design. It’s a lovely touch and I love that each guest gets to enjoy a different experience. It’s also a great incentive to return for a second, or third visit.

We stayed in the Hennessy room which was lovely. The bed was so, so, so comfortable. I have fallen in love with king-size (next investment for sure), the bath-tub was heavenly and the fireplace was a dream for the chilly winter weather.  Our room came fully equipped with a king size bed, soft linen, bath tub, shower, heated floors, private fireplace, air-con, tea and coffee making facilities, mini bar fridge and wine cooler, gorgeous bath and body products and free wi-fi. We had everything we needed, and more.

Breakfast was served in the main lounge / reception area each morning and there was honestly a little something for every tastebud. From a table filled with fresh fruit, yoghurt, pastries, cereals and fresh juice to an extensive menu of hot dishes including eggs benedict, full English, French toast and even a vegetarian option. The food was beautifully presented, fresh and full of flavour. A good breakfast and a hot cuppa really sets the tone for the rest of the day.

We spent our weekend drinking red wine, eating far too much food, chatting, laughing and just chilling. It was wonderful. The Franschhoek Boutique Hotel is a little home away from home and we will definitely visit them again soon. There are many more adventures to be had in the beautiful valley.
