We stayed one night at this beautiful guesthouse at Franschhoek. The owner and his wife were very welcoming and made are check-in really smooth. We got a great tip to have lunch and enjoyed our day. The next morning we had to leave really early so we didn't had time to enjoy the breakfast. I can really recommend this place... More

Lovely building. The rooms are large and very nicely decorated in a modern style. They included amenities such as pool towels and robes which was a very nice touch. I was in an upstairs room which had a lovely view of the mountains and was very quiet. There is a pool which is great for relaxing by. Everything was very... More

Great place to stay, quiet but still central. Modern and very clean. Staff are friendly and go out of their way to be of assistance. Breakfast on the "stoep" was wonderful. made our stay in Franschhoek a wonderful experience.

We stayed here for three nights in October and enjoyed every second! The guest house is beautiful, comfortable, clean and has a great breakfast. The outdoor swimming pool and the beautiful view over the mountains tops it of! The hosts are very friendly and they helped us with recommendations and reservations. I wish we could have stayed longer in this... More

We had a wonderful two night stay in this immaculate guest house. It is simply an oasis of calm in a beautiful area of the winelands. The Garlick's are lovely people and made us very welcome indeed. Our huge room had marvellous views, the bed was the most comfortable of all during our trip to S.A. and also the ladies... More

Very clean and modern rooms. Same goes for the rest of the house. The staff is welcoming and accommodating -- they made our lunch and dinner reservations! It's about a ten minute walk from the main road of Frankschhoek, so it's very quiet. A sweet getaway.

We had been two weeks in Namibia and one week in the Cape area. Maison d'Ail was the most pleasant accomodation we had during these 3 weeks. From the moment we were welcomed by our host we felt comfortable and at home. It's a B&B you want to stay mor than only 2 nights. The rooms are spacious and the... More

This is a beautiful guesthouse. The garlick's are extremely friendly hosts and were very kind and helpful to us. The setting is perfect right in the backdrop of the franschoek mountains. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have stayed in. We would definitely go back. Oh and the breakfast is... More

We travel extensively and honestly could not fault Maison d'Ail. The room was lovely, bed extremely comfortable. All extremely clean, (you could go around with a white glove). The breakfast was fabulous with inspired presentation. Jeanne is very talented at decorating and has a shop in town if you feel like shopping…
