My wife and I stayed at Macaron as part of our honeymoon. We couldn’t have asked for a better setup and would absolutely stay with Nadia and the team again if the opportunity presented itself. The property is beautiful and well kept. It is also just one block away from all of the restaurants & galleries. We drove a rental car and did not utilize the wine tram, but the hotel is within walking distance of the tram as well. It was an excellent stay, overall!

A stunning boutique guest house wrapped in stylish decor and a manicured garden. It is superbly managed by Nadia who sees to every need of guests with the help of her dedicated staff. We had a beautifully presented breakfast before we left. Highly recommended for local and international tourists.

A beautiful room with as beautiful grounds, it was a lovely stay. The location is central in Franshoek but not at all noisy so you get real peace at night. We had an amazing and comfortable sleep with a great breakfast in the morning.
