Les Chambres Guest House

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 January 2013

Beautiful guesthouse, very nice decorated rooms with perfect beds and a beautiful garden with an inviting (but small) pool area with very comfortable lounge chairs. There is a really nice lounge, it feels like a private sitting room and can be used for TV and Wifi. The breakfast is wonderful. You can easily walk to all the downtown restaurants and shops.

My wife and I spent 3 nights at Les Chambres in December 2012 and would definately recommend it. The rooms were nicely decorated, spacious and airy and we LOVED the outdoor area. The pool was small but adequate and the sunloungers were extremely comfy. Beautiful gardens in a quiet neighbourhood. It was a quick and easy stroll to the main street with lots of restaurants and shops nearby. Bill was helpful and avialable if needed. Breakfast was lovely, we would definately stay again!

I could have stayed for days. This is a great B&B to use as a base for touring the surrounding area. Bill serves a very good breakfast and knows the area a great deal and will share with you all the details about these areas. I've been renovating and restoring old homes for 30 plus years and Bill has done an excellent job on this place. No cut corners here. Very well maintained. One important detail that Les Chambres understands and that 90% off all others fail at...Having GOOD PILLOWS!

My husband and I spent two nights in this lovely guest house in November. The room was large and bright (with a big well appointed bathroom) and the surrounding gardens were perfectly lovely. But probably best of all, our host, Bill, was very welcoming and helpful. And, not to forget the excellent breakfasts. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.

This boutique B@B was booked for us by our UK based travel consultant,we are touring South Africa started in Cape town and ending by a game park.The visit to Franschoek met with all our expectations and this B@B had all the facilities needed IE lovely main building ,well appointed gardens and pool area great breakfast cooked by the owner .The location makes it easy to safely walk around town and have great meals.The only remark I would make,was that our room could do with some refreshment as far as the stained carpet and arm chairs are concerned.All other facilties and services are excellent

Dear Godwin

We have used the heavy-duty cleaner to remove the scuff marks (not stains) from the carpet, which has come up beautifully, so thank you for bringing it to our attention.

Kind regards

Bill

We recently spent two nights at Les Chambres on a weekend break in Franschoek and can recommend it very highly. Our room was spacious, tastefully decorated, clean, and the bed extremely comfortable. The room was also private and quiet, with its own small terrace and we liked the fact that it was not part of the main house, so it was more like a mini boutique hotel. The main house is an old Cape Dutch style house, well maintained, and again, tastefully and sympathetically decorated. It is set in the most lovely garden filled with flowers and fruit trees and has off-road parking. Bill, the owner, was friendly, helpful with recommendations, and service was prompt and efficient. Breakfast is served either in the dining room or on a pretty terrace outside. The smoked salmon and scrambled eggs was a winner! Location-wise Les Chambres is perfectly situated in the town, on a pleasant road just off the high street, so that you can easily walk (and stumble home) from the fabulous restaurants/shops/galleries in the little town. All the other main attractions of the area (mainly wine estates) only a 10-15 minute drive away. Overall a lovely place to stay for a very fair price.
