A perfect and very special stay
Banhoek Lodge is truly one of the best stays we have ever had. The room is gorgeous with perfect design, the bed comfortable and the views are absolutely stunning. The breakfast, homemade every morning by the lovely people that work there, is delicious. The staff is so welcoming and kind, and we especially want to thank Ms. Pamela for everything. This is a very special place and we will definitely be returning.

Banhoek Lodge is Franschhoek’s best kept secret. Nestled amidst several small vineyards, it has stunning mountain and valley views from every room. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to experience the Cape wine lands.

Nice stay with incredible views. Noisy rooms
Nice stay with incredible views and pleasant front of house staff. The breakfasts were lovely on our balcony however it was an hour late one morning due to an admin error. The accessibility from main road is great and there are beautiful walks available on the estate. Clean rooms and well decorated. Main issues are that the toilet is not private from the rest of the room and we the sound proofing between rooms is very poor, we could hear conversations and TV in room next door which was disappointing.
