End to end it is a great experience. Host is extremely friendly and helpful, the room was beautiful and the breakfast really good. It is situated centrally - walking distance from good restaurants. Also close to top wine farms and the French Huguenot monument / museum.

From the moment we drove through the gate we felt most welcome at this charming guest house. The location is excellent, central Franschhoek is literally around the corner and so you can walk to the wine tram and all manner of shops and restaurants in a matter of minutes. Our room was on the small side, but very cosy and...

We had two nights here which wasn't really enough. The owner, James was amazingly helpful, lots of tips on vineyards, restaurants, always willing to ring ahead and book for you. The property looks like late 18th century, with eight well appointed rooms, private terraces downstairs and lots of mature greenery all around as well as a pool. Very close to...

We spent a few days in Franshoek and the hospitality and friendliness of James at this Guest house was just fantastic! The rooms are very nice and the venue centrally located, so one does not have to drive around in Franshoek. James took care of all our restaurant bookings and his recommendations were great.

We really enjoyed staying here. James couldn't help enough with recommending which vineyards to visit, where to eat and what to see as well as activities worth doing once we had left Franschhoek. The location was fantastic, just a couple of minutes walk from the town centre - ideal for getting the wine tram!

Very nice guesthouse, conveniently located close to famous restaurants like The Tasting Room and Foliage. Spacious rooms in old country house style. The manager is very helpful with tips about what to do in and around Franschhoek. We had a very pleasant stay.

We had a brilliant time staying in Franschhoek and thoroughly enjoyed our time at Maison Chablis. The management there were incredibly nice and even went over and beyond their duty by helping us send some art back to the UK when it wouldn't fit in our suitcase and the post office was shut. We are incredibly grateful to them. The...

We were thrilled with our stay at this guesthouse! James, the owner, is the ideal host and welcomed us enthusiastically and looked after us and all of the guests through out the stay.
