Beautiful small Boutique Accomodation. Loved the decor and style. The breakfast was the best on our whole holiday. Yes it was quite far out of Franschoek to walk, but that appealed to me as it was very peaceful. It was only a 5 minutes drive into the Village. I would have no hesitation in recommending Maison d'Ail Guest House.

We spent 4 nights at Maison d'Ail. Our room was lovely with a balcony looking out across the hills. The house is very spacious with lovely indoor and outdoor seating areas and a nice pool. The breakfasts are excellent and the staff and owners helpful and friendly. Would definetly recommend.

This guest house has only five rooms. Our room was large, comfortable and welcoming, but there were a few cob webs in the ceiling, so the cleaning could have been better. But don't let this put you off, it is still very good accommodation. The only downside was that it was a quite far from the village centre and too... More

Our hosts Clive and Jean where hospitable, and their staff delightful if rather shy. The choice of décor in public rooms and bedrooms was tasteful, restful and comfortable. Zak their black labrador visited from his home next door to the guest house and amused those of us who like dogs but didn't bother those who didn't invite his attention. We... More

Great vista from the upper floors - we loved it here and will certainly be back! Bed linen was exceptional and that with the peace and tranquility Maison D'Ail offers we had the best sleeps ever!! We were made to feel so very welcome and it really was a highlight of an amazing trip.

Great place to base yourself for a trip around Franschhoek and the wineries. Great breakfast, good clean rooms and great hostess too. Rooms at the back look over the mountains and rooms at the front overlook the pool and mountains. Very quiet and lots of space to sit. Only little change would be that a the loyalty bar stayed open... More

Beautiful, homely guest house. Wonderful staff. Bedding was divine. Breakfast was delicious. Our room had beautiful views and was perfectly quiet. The pool was a little chilly but it is beautifully designed. Perfect place to dip after a long day.
