“A wonderful guesthouse in Franschhoek”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

again we spent three wonderful weeks in Les Chambres Guesthouse. It's located in the center of Franschhoek near to the Police Station so that you need not to care about security. The main street with its boutiques, shops and famous restaurants is in walking distance. You definitely don't need a car. Taxis are available at reasonable cost if ever needed.
The elegant Victorian Style guesthouse is located in a beautiful garden. You even will find the very rare Cape Chameleon there (see attached picture). There is also a heated swimming pool of reasonable size. The rooms are luxurious with large en suite bath rooms. Service is excellent.
Bill, the owner, is taking utmost care of his guests. Together with his staff he is preparing an outstanding cold and hot breakfast according to your preferences. He also will support you in making reservations at restaurants. The guests have access to Internet via WiFi and a special PC in the Lobby.
I am sure we will visit Les Chambres again.

Room Tip: Les Chambres is offering four double rooms. All are of equal quality.

Dear Peter and Helga

Thank you for the kind words.
I'm so pleased that you had another enjoyable stay with us and I hope to see you again in November.

P.S. The chameleons are still in the garden, but we have not yet seen any babies.

Kind regards

Bill Stemp

Franschoek is Janine's favourite town and Les Chambers made it even more special. Great place, beautiful setting and a immaculate run guest house. A must stay when in Franschoek. Bill, the owner is a fantastic host, and cooks a mean breakfast!!!! Bill, many thanks for a brilliant weekend.

Bill runs an awesome Bed and Breakfast in Franschhoek. Great location just off the main street. Awesome breakfast. We had a very nice room. Very comfortable. We were very pleased. Les Chambres was recommended from Africa Direct our company. They set us up with all remarkable places to stay. Bill at Les Chambres was very helpful. Found us a great company for private tours, set us up with some great restaurants and gave us some time saving information about the area including Cape Town. When we return we will certainly stay with Bill at Les Chambres.

Room Tip: We had room 1. was a nice accommodation and quiet.

Le Chambres is a charming and beautiful guesthouse. The location is perfect, centrally situated and within walking distance to restaurants and shops. The gardens are lovely and tranquil. The host is most helpful and welcoming and the breakfast is a perfect start to the day.

All in all, very highly recommended.

We stayed at Les Chambres guesthouse for two nights and had a wonderful stay. The location is excellent, both the guest rooms and the main house is charming, comfortable and with lots of attention to detail. The garden is beautiful and lends a most relaxing atmosphere. Bill is extremely helpful on which restaurants to go to and places to visit in and around Franschhoek and cooks a scrumptious breakfast. Very highly recommended!
