“Very comfortable accomodation with exceptional service”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

The guesthouse is ideally situated just off the main street with easy and safe walking to/from the shops and resturants. The house, bedroom (room 3) and the breakfast were all to a high standard. This alone makes us more than happy to recommend a stay but it was the owner James, whose help and assistance made it such a perfect visit for us. A very warm welcome was received with immediate help with dinner reservations. Nothing was ever too much trouble - what ever our request. The icing on the cake was when I had left a pair of glasses in Johannesberg, James assisted with the use of telephone and even transferring funds to the courier service on my behalf! We hope to return one day.

We had a most enjoyable stay. James, the owner, provided us with unrivalled service. The breakfasts were delicious and the rooms were perfect! We would love to go back anyday. A docking station for my ipod in our room would have been great.

Don't hesitate to book your accommodation at Maison Chablis! It is very centrally located in Franshoek and is within walking distance to everything. James and his staff are fantastic. We were stuck in traffic getting there and James very kindly arranged a dinner reservation and allowed us to book in late so that we wouldn't miss dinner!
The rooms are superb, impeccably clean and beautifully decorated. Delicious breakfast too!
Thank you for a wonderful stay!

I can just imagine you coming all the way to Franschhoek , the food and wine capital of South Africa, only to been stuck in traffic to miss dinner, so it was a pleasure to assist you, and been on the property, it was no problem at all to help you with a late arrival. I hope to see you again. Regards , James

A very nice James welcomed us warmly and making us feeling at home instantly. We really felt for the beautiful building in the centre of Franschhoek as we didn't book in advance. The room was good although the water pressure in the shower could have been a bit stronger... A perfect breakfast selection with a good service of the staff made it all complete. This guesthouse is a perfect stay and of walking distance of the main street. Definitely I would recommend this.

Hi Erik, Thank you for taking the tim eto do a review. As an establishment owner, it really helps. Your note of recommending us is really appreciated and we try our best to keep the standards high and consistent. I wish I could improve the water pressure problem, however, the Municipality is in control of that and I dont know at this stage of any plans to improve it. We wish they would! We hope to see you again in the future!
Best regards
James

The night we spent at Maison Chablis was most pleasurable. It is conveniently situated in central Fransch Hoek, the room was lovely and very comfortable, James is a most hospitable and attentive host and I would definitely recommend his establishment.

First time staying at Maison Chablis and would definitely stay again. Great location (just off Franschhoek high street), lovely comfy rooms, reliable free WiFi and fantastic breakfast every morning. Service was top as well - James and Pat were very welcoming, friendly, and attentive throughout our stay - thanks for making a business trip feel a bit more like a holiday!
