My partner and I stayed at Maison Fontainbleau for the 1st time for 5 nights and throughly enjoyed ourselves, we will definitely go back. The location is great, in the centre of everything so it's not far to travel to see the sights. The accommodation is lovely and has an amazing swimming pool area.

Great stay up on the high hills of Fresnaye. Almost a scary steep where the hotel is, and also a bit hidden. But the view from the terrace was faboulus! Breakfast was good, except for the eggs. They never really managed to make them well. Altough, I would recommend this staying to anyone.

Really enjoyed staying here, the owners were very friendly and just overall a great experience. The room I stayed in was very well maintained and very clean, a point which is important to me. Access to the guesthouse after checkin was easy. The views of Waterfront in the morning were amazing to say the least. Will definitely. Can definitely recommend...

From the moment we arrived Denise could not have been more warm and welcoming. From tips on the best roads to get around town to very kindly recommending and booking a doctor's appointment for my husband. Nothing's been too trouble and always super accommodating.

Where do I start? There is much to recommend Maison Fontainbleau in the exclusive neighbourhood of Fresnaye. It ticked all the boxes, breakfast each morning on the spacious patio, overlooking the bay was a perfect introduction to sunny Cape Town. No better way to get into the mood for exploring the city’s lively Seaport district. Our room was just perfect:...

Denise was a great host, flexible and a great help for recommendations which were very good (Ash restaurant in particular). Used Uber for the evenings which was great. Room was spacious with separate shower and bath. Stocked fridge, coffee/tea and safe in the room. Very clean. Used as a base to discover Cape Town: Robbens Island, Table Mountain, Cape Point...

Denis made the stay in her lovely house absolute delight, with a very warm welcome, spacious and modern room, fabulous breakfast setting on a terrace overlooking the ocean, but most of all her kind personality and real care for all the guests.

maison Fontainbleau is a little gem situation away from the hustle and bustle of sea Point bu still very close to all amenities and tourist attractions. Denise is an excellent hostess without being over the top. She has a unique ability to make everyone feel special

For my type of visit which is mostly business and part social, this is absolutely perfect. It is beautifully run, luxuriously furnished and the owner cannot do enough to ensure comfort. For access to where I need to be the position is perfect.
