    • 2.0.Poor

      Don't stay here if you don't want to get robbed

      We enjoyed our stay, until someone stole $200 and the rand equivalent of about $25 from our hotel safe. The safe has a key--I guess we should have known better. Our cab ride back to Cape Town told us that he knew of other visitors who had the same thing happen to them. Word to the wise--don't trust a safe in a Franschooek hotel. The property acted like they were going to do the right thing and refund us (even sending a "screenshot" of the refund) but we haven't gotten a dime back. So much for a romantic honeymoon
