Maison Chablis Guest House

Reviewed November 17, 2012

It's very rare for me to give 5 stars and Maison Chablis came close. Food spread for breakfast was fantastic, it was close to one of the best restaurants of my life, and so friendly a stop. The only slight detraction was some noise from above that came through easily. The fantastic local wine took care of that though

We loved Maison Chablis. We wanted an old building but did not want a Laura Ashley overload. The decor is understanded and stylish but still respetful of the historical old building. It is perfectly located for those who love walking around and exploring the town. If you plan to visit wineries, it is also very handy. The host is so welcoming and relaxed that it is difficlut not to love the place. We struggled to find really good breakfasts in South Africa, but Maison Chablis was a pleasant exception, with great breakfast options. We should have stayed longer!

Room Tip: Stay two or three days so you have a chance to enjoy Maison Chablis and explore Farnschoek and the s...

Thank you for welcoming me so nicely, for the beautiful and very comfortable room, the nice garden where I could enjoy a swim. I appreciated the calm and the relaxing environment, the birds coming to drink just in front of my room. I also appreciated that you recommended a very good, an excellent restaurant where I enjoyed such a perfect meal and wine.
The breakfast was very good and altogether this place is just the place to be in Franschhoek.
I will be back sometime and bring friends along.... Excellent experience

Room Tip: I think all rooms are as nice and decorated with taste

My boyfriend and i stayed here for 1 night in september. The owner was very hospitable and friendly. The bedroom was so charming with a large and comfortable bed, a sofa and TV and plenty of space. A very relaxing environment. The breakfast room was wonderfully decorated. Very tasty too. Tip: go for dinner at the Tasting Room - if you can get a table

Lovely guest house, convenient to the many restaurants in the area. Had a wonderful horse ride from local stable that took in two vineyards for tastings. A big thanks to the owner, James who makes everyone feel welcome, who very kindly arranged riding, dropping us off and picking us up again.

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to do a review. It was lovely to have the two of you stay with us, and by doing the horse and wine trail, see a different and beautiful part of the Franschhoek valley. Taking you there and collecting you really was a pleasure, and not worth calling a taxi for that short duration. Hope you drop by again!
Best regards
