4/10 Fair

For an expensive hotel not even a mini bar or working TV is a bit sloppy. Untrained staff.

Oasis in Franschhoek
Gorgeous little oasis in Franschhoek. Staff were very eager to please and the new wing where we stayed was well appointed. Minor points for improvement: coffee machine had very bright lights which came on when power came back on in the middle of the night - couldn't figure out how to turn them off so threw a towel over it! Staff may benefit from a little education about drinks in the bar and the absence of tonic to go with the wide selections of gin was a bit disappointing. It was very cold during our stay - the single spare blanket was insufficient as there is no heating when the power is out. But these are all comparatively minor points and the overall atmosphere, ambience and attention to detail were all excellent.

Amazing stay at the best boutique hotel out there
Had the most amazing stay at Chapter House for our honeymoon - the team were incredible hosts, and Byron in particular made my wife and I feel perfectly at home and couldn’t have done more to make our stay as special as it was - thank you so much! The hotel itself is beautiful and cosy, charming rooms, less than 5 minute walk from the centre of town and a lovely breakfast. Highly highly recommend to anyone and everyone - please go!
