Traveller Reviews

  • In Franschhoek, the Auberge Clermont was great! We were so close to everything and had great dinners at Reuben's and The Grill Room! We also used our rental car to drive all around and around the coast one afternoon.

    Chris Casto, October 2010
  • Auberge Clermont gave us a lovely taste of the wine region in very comfortable rooms.

    Maxine Dilley, October 2010
  • Auberge Clermont was absolutely beautiful. We loved the ambiance of the property.

  • We stayed at Auberge Clermont in Franschhoek which was superb and Fynbos Ridge near Plett/Knysna which we could not fault if we tried. We would recommend both properties to any prospective visitors.

  • Auberge Clermont was so beautiful. I would stay there again in a second. Franschoek was the right call for us instead of Stellenbosch. Surprisingly, the bed at Clermont was like sleeping on a wooden table. I think they just need to put an egg crate or some kind of mattress topper to make the bed comfortable - other than that, we adored the location and grounds.

    Denice Kresker, October 2009
  • The hotels were beautiful, and we really loved staying in them! The staffs in every one of them were friendly, serviceminded and made the stay informal and also luxurious.

    Sissel Jansen, April 2009
  • Auberge is a lovely place with beautiful views. It is a really peaceful area. We had a great time there and would definitely recommend it.

    Judy King, October 2008
  • We had 2 gorgeous bedrooms overlooking the vineyards, swimming pool and mountain view beyond. It was idyllic and the owner, Chris, and the manager were very welcoming. We were planning to do another vineyard visit (we'd already been to Rickety Bridge), but when we arrived there at about 2.30 pm - we decided to settle for a chilled bottle of their delicious Sauvignon Blanc on our patio instead and the children were very glad to swim and relax rather than another boring wine tasting. Breakfast was very good and served on the patio.

    Jocelyn Owen, June 2008
  • The accommodation was very well chosen and was of a very good standard. The locations you suggested were perfect.
