Le Quartier Français

Romantic rooms and fine dining experiences

Situated in the heart of Franschhoek, Le Quartier Français is a sophisticated yet romantic boutique hotel with luxuriously appointed rooms, suites and independent villas, complemented with artworks by local artists. 

Franschhoek is considered to be the gourmet capital of South Africa and your dining options at Le Quartier Français certainly reiterate this sentiment. The Tasting Room restaurant is the stage for award-winning chef Margot Janse and her unique, contemporary African-inspired tasting menu. Here, serious diners have the opportunity to experience a truly exceptional culinary experience. The Bar at LQF is a modern, sociable space which provides the perfect spot to relax and savour a craft gin cocktail, artisan beer or hand-picked selection of local wine.

If you seek something altogether lighter, head for Tuk Tuk – the microbrewery offers craft beer and a selection of delicious small plate dishes as well as Mexican-inspired meals. As the hotel is part of the Leeu Collection, you may also visit the nearby sister hotels.

Wonderful boutique hotel

North Miami Beach, Florida

This is one of the nicest boutique hotels where I have stayed anywhere in the world. The location close to Main Street is ideal. The rooms are arranged around a nice central courtyard and pool. The beds are very comfortable. The breakfast menu has limited options but they are all deliciously prepared. The staff is extremely attentive and eager to help.

Lovely Boutique Hotel

Sydney, Australia

Excellent location at the end of the Main Street in Franschhoek, and an easy walk along the main retail and dining strip. The hotel is small, boutique, clean, fresh, well appointed and very quiet during the day. Big rooms, large bed with linen changed daily! Rooms are wired with modern inclusions such as USB ports each side of the bed, complimentary wifi is ok but does drop out often, underfloor heating and complimentary red and white wine. Our room had a large bathroom which was wheelchair accessible, having rails and overly large shower stall and so much space made it appear less premium and certainly not a cosy feel. Strictly functional. (needs better lighting over the vanity mirrors). Lovely garden surrounds and many different zones provides privacy. Our room number 21 was located adjacent a services courtyard for air con and hot water systems which was accessed by staff at early hours of the morning-I think the door must jam due to the noise opening and slamming it closed. Two restaurants on site offering both indoor and outdoor seating-Protege where breakfast is served. The breakfast offer is small given the limited number of rooms and guests. Menu is ok, although a little strange with trout in several dishes but you can order over and above the menu. There is also a fine dining restaurant-La Petite Colombe, which is quite exclusive and indeed fine dining, which can be awkward if travelling safari style for 5 weeks and not carting your fine dining clothes around! We found a large number of casual dining options in the Main Street with excellent meals at really good prices. Le Quartier Francais is just one of several properties the Leeu Group has in the area and a courtesy shuttle is available for guest transfers, especially to use facilities such as the spa and gym. All the staff we met and had interaction with were lovely and helpful.
