Everything was great. No dislikes!
Very helpful staff ensuring our stay at the lodge was perfect and also assisting with booking and recommending activities in Franschhoek! The lodge is amazing! Comfortable room with a lot of character, pool and terrace with the best view.
After arriving at the Cape Town airport we drove to the Elephant Lodge taking a scenic route through Stellonbosch. It was a first for all 4 of us, a Cdn couple and 2 German delegates traveling as singles. Our 3 rooms were wonderful. As a couple we got a cottage all to ourselves. If you don't like taxidermy, choose other accommodation. The walls are decorated with examples of wildlife that once roamed the local valleys that are now covered in vineyards. The pool area was a quiet shelter from the spring winds, perfect for our big breakfast, a peaceful rest or an evening drink. The pool is not heated so prepare for a cool refreshing plunge. From the time we arrived Cecilia took care of us, making dinner and tour recommendations and reservations. We hope to make the long journey to Franschhoek again and we plan to return to Elephant Lodge.
I wish we stayed longer than 2 nights.
We enjoyed a wonderful 4 night stay at Elephant Lodge. Located on the top of the hill the room had wonderful views of the valley. Breakfast was excellent and cooked to order. Weather permitting breakfast takes place around the pool, which is lovely. The room was exceptionally clean with great wifi and all the other facilities you'd need and the staff are very friendly. Highly recommend Elephant Lodge.
Lovely views and a warm and friendly welcome from Cecilia who could not do enough for us! Patricia you make a great cooked breakfast. Complimentary fruit and wine on arrival. Lovely fire for chilly nights
Bed was hard and squeaky! Lounge area could have had a nice comfy sofa instead of hard winged back chairs
