We had a great weekend stay at the Maison Chablis. The location is perfect ... just a block or so from the main road. The room was very comfortable and we slept well. James, the owner, was an excellent host and offered some great suggestions for exploring in Franschhoek. We'll definitely be back.

Maybe the rooms in the upper floors are nicer than those on the courtyard. Our two rooms there, at ground level in the back of the building, were small (did someone say "snug"?) and in shadow most of the day -- and did not resemble the photos on the website which indicated larger sunny rooms. I'm sure that's fine in... More

James C, Owner at Maison Chablis Guest House, responded to this review

Hi, Thank you for your review. I think your expectations were way beyond a 4 star B & B and also mostly unrealistic and unfounded . I listened to you very carefully when you addressed your complaints and I have this to say. You clearly stated to me that the bed wasn't a queen size. The bed is 1.5mWx 1.9m... More

As the title of my review suggests, we were blown away by the absolute warmth and friendliness of hosts Pat and James. It's clear that they make a point to engage with every single guest, and they were simply lovely. We visited over the Valentine's Day weekend and it was just lovely - had the privilege to enjoy two different... More

James and the staff of Maison made our stay very special. From the moment we checked in we were made to feel like special guests. Freshly cooked breakfasts, snug warm rooms, walking distance to everything special in town. My only criticism if I can be honest is our bathroom ceiling could do with a dry down, bit of mould growing... More

It poured the two days we were in Franschhoek so it was difficult to take advantage of all of the amenities Maison Chablis had to offer. However, the room was quaint, the service was wonderful and the breakfast was delicious. It was an easy walk into town and take advantage of the wonderful restaurants and shops. I would like to...

Stayed over at Maison Chablis for two days over the Easter weekend. What a fabulous little guesthouse! The hosts James and Pat were wonderful and extremely accommodating. We stayed in a garden room which was very comfortable and spacious. The guesthouse is very centrally located and a short walk away from the Franschhoek main street. There is offstreet parking which... More

Our second stay at Maison Chablis and once again it could not have been better, great breakfast, fine room, but the best part is the warmth offered by James and Pat, who can not do enough to make your stay perfect.
