Very lovely place to go if you plan a trip to the Winelands. The B&B is on the hillside with a perfect view of the valley. This B&B has for sure bigger rooms than a hotel and serves a fantastic breakfast.

We stayed 2 no nights in this beautiful B&B - the room & bathroom and our private patio were huge, the bed very comfy and the breakfast delirious - really high standard accommodation worth every penny! Location was good too- You can walk to the restaurants in the town centre. We wish we were there a month earlier when the... More

My boyfriend and I spent 3 nights at Maison d'Ail when we were in Franshoek for a wedding. The guesthouse is centrally located, just off the high street on a quiet residential road and is a short walk/ drive into the town centre (it's a bit of a hill walk so pack some good walking shoes!). Our room was clean... More

We were welcomed by Clive and Jeanne and their lovely black labrador, Zack. The accommodation is purpose built for guests next to their own house and they've thought of everything. Breakfast (excellent) is served overlooking the pool with the mountains in the background - stunning. There are plenty of comfy chairs, sofas and loungers dotted around the pool and inside... More

We stayed at this guest house in March. Staff were very helpful. The place was clean and modern. They also have an honestly system with Nespresso coffee, wine, beer, soft drinks and snacks which makes staying there a bit like being at home. We hired the whole place out which was great as we had the whole place to ourselves.... More

The only downside to our stay was the we had only managed to book for one night! We would definitely return to Maison D'Ail again it offerd everything you... More
