Maybe the rooms in the upper floors are nicer than those on the courtyard. Our two rooms there, at ground level in the back of the building, were small (did someone say "snug"?) and in shadow most of the day -- and did not resemble the photos on the website which indicated larger sunny rooms. I'm sure that's fine in... More

As the title of my review suggests, we were blown away by the absolute warmth and friendliness of hosts Pat and James. It's clear that they make a point to engage with every single guest, and they were simply lovely. We visited over the Valentine's Day weekend and it was just lovely - had the privilege to enjoy two different... More

James and the staff of Maison made our stay very special. From the moment we checked in we were made to feel like special guests. Freshly cooked breakfasts, snug warm rooms, walking distance to everything special in town. My only criticism if I can be honest is our bathroom ceiling could do with a dry down, bit of mould growing... More

It poured the two days we were in Franschhoek so it was difficult to take advantage of all of the amenities Maison Chablis had to offer. However, the room was quaint, the service was wonderful and the breakfast was delicious. It was an easy walk into town and take advantage of the wonderful restaurants and shops. I would like to...

Stayed over at Maison Chablis for two days over the Easter weekend. What a fabulous little guesthouse! The hosts James and Pat were wonderful and extremely accommodating. We stayed in a garden room which was very comfortable and spacious. The guesthouse is very centrally located and a short walk away from the Franschhoek main street. There is offstreet parking which... More

I recently visited Franschoek with a group of friends and we chose the Maison Chablis for our stay ... .and so glad we did. The owner was warm and gracious and really helped us feel welcome during our stay. We loved the proximity to restaurants in town and spent our day doing a bike tour of wine estates.... and spare...

Our second stay at Maison Chablis and once again it could not have been better, great breakfast, fine room, but the best part is the warmth offered by James and Pat, who can not do enough to make your stay perfect.

This is the second time we have stayed at Maison Chablis (first in 2009 with previous owners) and I am glad to say it is still wonderful. The hosts are very welcoming and informative and the rooms are charming (although if I had to be picky, the bed is a little on the hard side) It is an ideal location... More
