“Relaxing in Franschhoek”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Very nice and relaxing stay for four nights (my wife and me). James (owner) and Pat are really friendly and helpful. Perfect location just a minute from main street were you find all the good restaurants. Nice and clean rooms and good breakfast. A very good stay if you want to explore all the good food and wine Franschhoek can offer.

We stayed 2 nights at Maison Chablis. We were greeted by James, owner, who was very friendly and helpful offering us lots of information on local acitivities, restaurants, etc. The room was very nice, the breakfast was excellent and the overall service was also excellent. Highly recommend it.

Maison Chablis is a lovely Guest House, a block from the main street in Franschoek. The rooms were nicely decorated, large enough to move around, and comfortable. All the amenities were there, from an in-room safe to coffee, tea and biscuits (plus a mini-bar).
The owner, James, was delightful, helpful and very welcoming. The property has an inviting pool and lounge area, and we were told the pool will have solar heat added in the near future.
Breakfast was delicious and included in the price of the room. There was a great selection of cereals, fresh fruit, bread and beverages. A wait staff also took orders for eggs cooked to order and with any variety of styles. Breakfast was great.

Room Tip: I believe there were 2 rooms off the dining room (upstairs) that were small and shared a bath at the...

Hi, Thank you for writing a review. It is much appreciated. You are however mistaken about the rooms upstairs. Each of our 7 bedrooms have their own private bathrooms. Room 6 has a full en suite bathroom with bath and shower whereas Room 7 has an en suite bathroom with a shower only. There is a guest toilet at the end of the passage and I think you mistook that for a shared bathroom. It is a toilet and hand basin only.

Regards
James

We stayed at Maison Chablis for 5 nights and would definately come back. The room was spacious, clean and nicely decorated. Really nice to have our own garden patio. The garden was beautiful, and the pool area really nice. Great location close to restaurants and shops. Good breakfast, friendly and helpful Staff and owners. We got help with everything from shirt ironing, restaurant bookings, taxi and more.

My wife and I stayed here for our last 3 nights of a 2 week trip to SA in March. Hard to imagine a more relaxing place to stay in Franschoek - quiet location but everything in town within walking distance, beautiful gardens and a wonderful large room with attached bath/shower room. Excellent breakfasts served by very kind and helpful staff and owners. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone.

We had a wonderful stay in Franschhoek and Maison Chablis was a perfect place to stay in. Quiet. Close to the city. Friendly atmosphere.
I think that covers it all but as I need to have +200 chr in the Review I will just add: Thank You.
