10/10 Exceptional

La Fontaine is a very impressive property.The hotel is very conveniently located near the Franschhoek village center. Spotlessly clean with very well designed guest rooms, La Fontaine combines African charm with European sophistication. We loved all aspects of La Fontaine, including the spectacular breakfast spread, the clawfoot soaking tub, secluded pool areas and convenient transportation. La Fontaine’s greatest asset is the great service provided by the very professional staff.After a very long flight and late arrival time, we slept past the breakfast hours. We got a call from the food and beverage supervisor, offering to extend breakfast for us. When we declined, they sent to our room a beautiful tray of foods that included pastries, fruits, breads, cheese, cold cuts, cappuccinos and even smoothies.This gesture made us feel truly special. There were two very gracious staff members who really impressed us - Karloff, the driver/transportation coordinator and Kim the Manager. We highly recommend La Fontaine Boutique Hotel.

A little gem!
What a little gem! Impeccable service, complemented by a beautiful room with lots of nice little touches like plush robes and high-end soaps and lotions.
Views form the main road.
