“Wonderful visit to Franschhoek”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2014

We spent the last 4 nights of our trip to SA in this beautiful guest house. Our first visit to SA has been wonderful and this guest house the best stay of all. Beautiful rooms, bathrooms and gardens. A pretty pool surrounded by flowers and trees, with plenty of shade and comfortable sun beds. Bill cooks breakfast to order, which is taken on a shady terrace. The setting is most convenient, being minutes walk from the main street, yet remaining a peaceful location. Bill was very helpful in guiding us to the best eateries and vineyards to visit. The Saturday village market in Franschhoek was lovely, well worth a visit to sip a glass of champagne and nibble some local delicacies under the shady trees. I can't wait to return and recommend Les Chambres unreservedly.

Room Tip: All rooms are perfect!

We could not have asked for a better place to spend Christmas. It is the second time we have stayed at Les Chambres and it continues to impress. The guesthouse is Victorian and is situated in a lovely garden complete with a heated pool, which was a welcome relief after a day spent touring the local wineries! The rooms, complete with an ensuite bathroom, are extremely comfortable and well serviced - ideal for a long stay. Les Chambres is in the perfect location, in walking distance of many great restaurants and the main street with all its boutiques and shops. Bill is a fantastic host and his great breakfasts set us up for the day. He was a great help making restaurant recommendations and reservations for us back in October, something that was essential for the busy holiday period. He also recommended the hike up Mt. Rochelle that takes you high above Franschhoek and has some pretty spectacular views of the valley and beyond. Thank you Bill and your staff for making this a Christmas to remember. We will surely see you again.

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.
