Luxurious comfort and delicious food
La Petite Dauphine was fantastic - the bedroom was extremely comfortable, with amazing bed linen and lovely bathroom products and the location is superb; 5 minutes outside of Frandhoek in very peaceful olive and wine groves. We had a delicious breakfast on both mornings at Cafe Bonbon, in particular the flapjacks (pancakes).

5* stay in every way
We stayed for 2 nights at La Petite Dauphine and the experience was 5* from start to finish. The welcome from Stefan at reception was exemplary. We had not booked anywhere for dinner, so he rang round and found us a table at Holden Manz Vineyard, which was an excellent choice. When he took us to our room we realised we had been upgraded to one of the Premier Suites, 8 On Olive. Wow! The accommodation was just beautiful and in the most stunning setting, with it's own terrace & plunge pool. We wished we had booked for a week as we really didn't have enough time to enjoy the stunning surroundings, or enjoy dinner at the on site restaurant. Breakfast was served on the terrace of Cafe Bon Bon and was excellent. All the staff were friendly and helpful and the gardens were just beautiful. We would love to return to Franschhoek and La Petite Dauphine would be our first choice.

A bit of paradise
A little piece of paradise in the jewel of South Africa. Being someone who is partial to good food/wine this is the perfect place to stay. The restaurants that were recommended to us by the manager far exceeded our expectations. I can thoroughly recommend the sirloin at the French Connection restaurant!!! Staff were exceptional on site!! Can't wait to go back
