This is a beautiful cool peaceful house. It has a lovely terrace on which to have breakfast or simply enjoy a glass of the local wine. The pool is quiet & refreshing, the rooms spacious clean & well decorated. The "honesty bar" was especially well stocked. Staff were friendly & helpful. I wish we had been staying for longer.

Enjoyed the standard room. Staff were great and the owner very warm and helpful.It was close enough to the centre of town to get there quickly but far enough to not be caught up in the busyness. It had a lovely garden in which to have breakfast.

We stopped for two nights at Maison D'Ail, arrived early but was met by Clive who was extremely helpful, nothing was too much bother, and he showed us to our room. Good size, clean, comfortable and his lounge areas were superb. He discovered that we hadn't booked a restaurant for the evening so he rung around and managed to get...

We had a fantastic stop lovely staff and the owner was very helpful arranging local restaurants. The outside space and pool are really lovely. Breakfasts are also fabulous. If you visit a tip is to book your restaurants in advance as it is a very busy town in peak times.

We stayed here for 4 nights in February 2017. The location is great and while a car is needed it is about 15 mins walk into the centre. Jeanne and Clive are good hosts and helpful with advice on things to do. Everything is spotless and their staff very friendly. Breakfast was first class and we had it on the...

We enjoyed a peaceful two night stay at this lovely, quiet guesthouse. It has a vintage feel to it. Our room was comfortable with all the necessary amenities. We thoroughly enjoyed the shower. The water pressure was strong and the shower flooring is made of stones, which provided a kind of massage effect on the balls of our feet. The...

The Maison d'Ail is Franschoek at it's very best and great value for money. It's conveniently sited to the Restaurants in Town but far enough away to be perfectly quiet. It's run by wonderfully attentive staff who seem to know when to appear and when not. The Breakfasts were simply super and the Owner Clive seems to have got it...

Although the initial approach is a little disconcerting once you enter the whole experience is first class, public rooms are stylish , very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Close to the center of Franschhoek but just a little to far to walk which was the only minor downside

This guesthouse simply blew our minds away! Everything about it was superb in every small detail. The owners were fabulously welcoming; the rooms would not have been out of place in a 6-star hotel; the breakfast layout was incredible; the beds the most comfy we have ever slept in and it was so peaceful! Absolutely no hesitation in returning -...
