5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Thank you for a wonderfull day in Franschhoek.
Rooms, breakfast, WiFi - everything was perfect for us.
Especially thx to James for the personal Service at Maison Chablis.
The only bad thing was, that we only stayed for one night ;-)

The location is excellent for enjoying Franschhoek and its lovely restaurants. We have stayed twice at Maison Chablis Guest House and both times we have met a service an an attitude beyond our expectations - and we will come back again.

Greeted on arrival by the very friendly and helpful owner, who not only showed us to our very comfortable room, but also suggested restaurants we my like to consider for dinner. Maison Chablis is within walking distance of everything Franschhoek has to offer and is safe to walk, even at night. Breakfast offered everything you could possibly want, and was very enjoyable and leisurely.

We sadly on stayed one nit here but wish we could stayed longer. James is a wonderful host and very helpful from providing information, making reservations if you need them, to helping us out in the morning with a slightly earlier than normal breakfast and cooking us eggs himself. We loved the door and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants to visit Franschhoek.

We had previously stayed in various places in Franschhoek and this time we opted for the boutique guest house, Maison Chablis. On arrival we were greeted very friendly by the owner, James. We stayed for (4) nights in a luxury (superior) room with a small patio. THANK YOU very much for the upgrade, much appreciated!

The guest house is within easy walking distance to Franschhoek’s excellent restaurants and shops. We visited three (3) of the restaurants and coffee shops James suggested. We especially enjoyed The Grill room he recommended. Breakfast was served from 08:00 – 09:30 in a beautiful breakfast room upstairs on the second floor. Breakfast options included muesli, cereal, fresh fruit salad and an English breakfast made on order.

The garden is beautiful and very well-maintained. Would love to spend time around the swimming pool, unfortunately the weather did not allow us this time! Greetings to your dog, Simba, he is such a sweetie!

Will definitely return, hope to see you soon!

Room Tip: Superior room with garden patio is a MUST!!

While we only had one night in Franschhoek, we wish we had more as soon as we checked in to Maison Chablis.
The room was bigger than we expected with a four-poster bed, a sofa and widescreen TV, but what really wowed us was the surroundings. While the guesthouse is a little tucked away, just off the main high street, the garden was so picturesque - full of birds and flowers - and the perfect place to drink a glass of the local wine.
James could not have been obliging as a host. When we turned up on Saturday afternoon having not booked a restaurant, he booked one for us and pointed us in the direction of some excellent local wineries.
We wish we could have stayed there for longer and if we ever return to South Africa we will definitely return.

My wife and I found Maison Chablis great value for money in this very upmarket village. The service is superb - its almost like visiting favourite family.
It is in very easy walking distance from shops and restuarants.
