“Lovely stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

Maison Chablis is a sweet guesthouse near all the main shops and restaurants. The hosts are very attentive and the breakfast is lovely. I think the only downside for us is that the pool wasn't a little bigger / sunnier so if you want to lounge by a pool for hours this probably isn't the place but is a brilliant base for exploring all the vineyards that Franschooek has to offer.

We had to cancel our 1st night on the day we where meant to check in and James did not charge us. He made our stay great and even organised some eye drops the next morning for me!

I will definitely go back again!

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Maison Chablis. We were greeted on arrival by the owner, James, who sat us down with a map of Franschhoek and helped us finalize our plans for the following days. He went out of his way during our stay to ensure that we were comfortable and getting the most out of our time in Franschhoek. Our upstairs standard room was comfortable and clean, if a bit small. The complimentary bottled water in our mini-fridge was perfect after a day of wine tasting. The breakfasts included both continental options and made-to-order items like eggs and grilled tomatoes; plenty of food to get us started in the morning. The location is ideal for exploring Franschhoek on foot. We didn't have a car but were able to easily walk to the wine tram, the Huguenot Memorial Museum, and all of our restaurants. James arranged our transport back to Cape Town, and left an early-morning breakfast in our mini-fridge the night before since we would be leaving too early for the standard breakfast. It was this attention to detail that made the stay so memorable.

Room Tip: Our upstairs standard room was a bit small. It looked like the downstairs rooms had more space, as...

Myself and my wife stayed here recently and would highly recommend it. James, the owner, was very attentive and helpful. Our room was extremely comfortable with all that we needed. It had a lovely little courtyard for just our use. Also a neat pleasant garden and nice pool. Parking was in site and secure. James recommended local restaurants and attractions. Franschhoek is a very pretty little town and well worth a visit. We ate at the Grill Room which was excellent.

Great little spot just off the main drag in Franshhoek. Correct mix of being looked after very well by James while still feeling totally at home. Excellent value for money, gorgeous rooms with great breakfast in the morning. Would stay again without hesitation.

Our third stay at Maison Chablis. It just gets better....improvements are ongoing. James is a genial and helpful host and always goes the extra mile. Pat is a wonderful Manageress. Breakfasts are always beautifully presented. We stayed for 4 nights again this year, but our next trip will be for longer. Can't recommend this guest house highly enough. Well done James and Pat

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms with patios are delightful

We have stayed at Maison Chablis in the past but went elsewhere on our last visit to Franschhoek as the manager was not up to scratch. However now James the owner and Pat his assistant have taken it in hand we are back and it's lovely to be there. The rooms are nicely decorated and fitted out with all amenities. The pool area is a haven of calm and immaculately clean. The garden is a joy with many birds visiting the feeders. James is absolutely charming and efficient and a joy to talk to.His assistant Pat is an old friend as we have met her on several occasions and together they run a tight ship. We will most certainly be back, we had a great time. Thanks James and Pat
