Our Local is still Lekker 2010

Friday, August 6th, 2010

Our fabulous Local is Lekker 2010 special is still running!

It is an absolute steal at R895 per person and it includes -

  • Bed and a delectable breakfast
  • R150 worth of Le Quartier Français currency to put towards one of our experiences; think a meal, a massage, a movie, a cooking class or some other magical element of our exceptional offering.

Escape to Franschhoek on that weekend break or, if you’re daring, mid-week escape … at R895 per person per night (with added extras) it is definitely the most delicious offer in the winelands!

Thanks Daf, this is a truly amazing gesture. Good luck from everyone here at Le Quartier Français!

What should top hotels realistically expect guests to pay for?

Friday, May 21st, 2010

I recently read a short article – you’ll find it here – and it got me thinking.

As hoteliers I believe that we often forget what is really important and what adds real value to a guest’s experience. Somehow, and I think this happens in all industries (not just tourism), we believe that in the hallowed-halls of our own establishments the things that irritate us – when we are paying customers elsewhere – don’t apply.

When I’m a guest there are a few specific things that don’t work for me and I’ve worked hard to ensure that Le Quartier Français guests never have to experience them. Because, apart from the fact that they irritate me, I think that they have the ability to ruin a premium hotel experience.

I’m very interested to find out what your pet hotel peeves are? What has the ability to ruin your entire stay at a luxury establishment?

Le Quartier Français Packages – Book Now!

Friday, March 19th, 2010

2010 certainly began with a bang. It’s hard to believe that we’re already in the third month of the year. The Christmas and New Year break are now a distant memory, the Soccer World Cup is around the corner and the end of Summer is rapidly approaching.

At Le Quartier Français we know that it’s been three long months since your last real break and we think it’s time you recharged your soul on a mini-break. Pick from our selection of fantastic packages (the stay for 4 pay for 3 is always popular) and book yourself and a loved one, or friend, in for a night or four.

We suggest checking out Franschhoek during the lesser-known months of April and May, it really is spectacular over this time. It’s not too hot, the wind is minimal and it’s far less frantic than during January and February. Plus restaurant bookings are far easier to come by!

To view the various Le Quartier Français packages please visit our website. To book call us on +27218762151. See you soon!
