Fabulous Franschhoek stay
Cecilia & Kim are gracious hosts who went out of their way to make our stay memorable. Located one block off the main road it is within easy walking distance to first class shops and restaurants as well as close to memorable wineries. Rooms are large, beautifully decorated. Breakfast is excellent. The living room is a wonderful way to socialize with other guests. We would stay there again.

Amazing boutique hotel, with a real personal touch nothing to much trouble. Great central location one block away from the wine tram tour and restaurants.

A gem in Franschhoek
I can't recommend La fontaine highly enough. The staff were amazingly helpful and friendly - absolutely nothing was too much trouble - booking restaurants and arranging taxis for us, drinks by the pool etc. The interior decor was beautiful - it is very obvious that a huge amount of thought has been put into making this such a special place.

Very good 8,0
We would stay there again
It was a very nice hotel, with excellent staff. Slightly old fashioned in design, but in excellent condition. Our only problem was that one of us is slightly disabled, and there were steps and uneven paths to the rooms. However we would stay there again if we were in the area. It was in a very convenient position.

An ideal place to stay.
We throughly enjoyed our stay at La Fontaine. The location was excellent and you can walk to the Main Street in a couple of minutes where you will find an array of restaurants and bars. The staff were really helpful, the rooms are clean and extremely comfortable and the two pool areas are a nice place to relax. Breakfast on the patio was a great way to start the day. There is also parking.
