Our hosts Clive and Jean where hospitable, and their staff delightful if rather shy. The choice of décor in public rooms and bedrooms was tasteful, restful and comfortable. Zak their black labrador visited from his home next door to the guest house and amused those of us who like dogs but didn't bother those who didn't invite his attention. We... More

Great vista from the upper floors - we loved it here and will certainly be back! Bed linen was exceptional and that with the peace and tranquility Maison D'Ail offers we had the best sleeps ever!! We were made to feel so very welcome and it really was a highlight of an amazing trip.

Great place to base yourself for a trip around Franschhoek and the wineries. Great breakfast, good clean rooms and great hostess too. Rooms at the back look over the mountains and rooms at the front overlook the pool and mountains. Very quiet and lots of space to sit. Only little change would be that a the loyalty bar stayed open... More

We spent two nights at Maison d'Ail and although it is a 10 minute walk to the Main Street this is a luxury guesthouse,beautifully appointed.We stayed in room 5 which has exceptional views and very comfortable bed. Breakfast was served outside on the verandah and we felt maybe staff just needed to engage a little more with their guests. This... More

Beautiful, homely guest house. Wonderful staff. Bedding was divine. Breakfast was delicious. Our room had beautiful views and was perfectly quiet. The pool was a little chilly but it is beautifully designed. Perfect place to dip after a long day.

Maison d'Ail was a beautiful place to stay as we explored the wine lands. Our room was extremely comfortable and had superb views all round and a large balcony. Breakfast could be taken outside on the verandah if preferred which was a great start on a sunny day.

We stayed for three nights and had a really lovely experience. Maison d'Ail is very pretty, and our room was lovely and spacious. The room was finished to a really high standard. Good facilities, breakfast was very good and all the staff were really helpful. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the main town itself, and we... More

What a beautiful Guest House this is. A little way off the main street, this little gem is a real haven. Beautifully furnished with superb views. The hosts were welcoming and went out of their way to ensure that we had a comfortable stay including booking us a table at a nearby restaurant for dinner. A cooked breakfast, made to... More

This was a welcome return visit to this beautiful guest house. We stayed here 3 years ago whilst touring the Garden Route and enjoyed it so much we came back and it was just as good as we remembered! Once again the rooms and breakfast were superb, as was the large comfortable lounge. Next time we tour the wine region... More

Maison D'Ail sits towards the end of Reservoir St which means you have a comfotable 5 minute stroll into the centre of Franschoek. We had planned a wine tour for the day we arrived and even though we arrived as other guests were just leaving after breakfast, a space was made available for us to unload our cars and store...
