We stayed here in 2013 and loved the hotel. The view is great, location better and the breakfast delicious. The owners are very welcoming and the guest house is lovely. We stayed again in feb 2015 with our new baby and it didn't disappoint.

Excellent B&B. Maison D'ail is comfortable and clean with very spacious, stylish rooms. With welcoming and pleasant hosts. The breakfast was good. A 15 minute walk or short drive into the dorp centre, surrounded by the most lovely scenery. What more could you ask for?

We arrived mid-afternoon on a blisteringly hot day and the walk past the pool to the cool lounge dining area was a delight. The room, facilities, breakfast, pool area are all good. The main road and restaurants are 3/4 mile away (not that brief a walk), but parking is no problem. Jeanne and Clive are very chatty and helpful. It... More

We stayed here in late January this year and were delighted that it exceeded our expectations and served as a wonderful way to end our holiday celebrating my mom's 80th. Clive and his team have superb attention to detail, the rooms are spacious and well appointed and there are little touches that we really appreciated- like Nespresso coffee at breakfast... More

The guest house is situated a little off of the main road of Franschoek in a lovely quiet area. The views afforded from the room windows and balcony are stunning, while the main road is a brief walk away. The hosts are very friendly and helpful, rooms are very comfortable and breakfast on the patio is fantastic. Definitely will stay... More

We visited Franschoek last October (2014). The owners and personnel at Maison d'Ail made a very nice impression, asking us what we were looking for and giving good advises for dinner places. A great breakfast and a nice view of the valley. We also experinced the most impresive double rainbow when we where there!

Maison D'Ali is situated in a quiet part of Franschhoek, and is only a 12 min walk from the center of the town. Jeanne and Clive provided personalised service and assisted us with booking excellent meals locally. Breakfasts on the patio were fabulous. We'll stay here again.

We were greeted by the friendly owner when we arrived and he was so helpful and providing us with all what... More
