Calais Guest House is ideally located just behind the main road in Franschhoek and within easy walking distance of all the local amenities. The guest house is immaculate and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. A marvellous breakfast (cooked to order) started each day......you must try the mushrooms! A nice pool area and covered patio allow you to relax outside in the shade if necessary. Lots of advice on places to visit in the area. I would highly recommend staying here if you visit.

The Calais Guest House is beautifully decorated, very comfortable and ideally located to enjoy Franschhoek, and catch the wine tram. Service is excellent. Safe and convenient parking on site. Faster Internet connection than many hotels.

We had a very lovely stay here for 3 nights. Carlos and Ané are very warm and lovely hosts, they have a spectacular home in a quiet cul de sac, only a short walk into town.

The accommodation is very comfortable, with lots of special added touches in the room to make it feel home from home.

They have lots of areas to relax and enjoy by the pool, which was very private and peaceful.

Breakfast was excellent, Gina really made a fuss and nothing was too much trouble, we were well looked after. Views from the terrace at breakfast were amazing.

We felt very well looked after from arrival to departure, a lovely stay.

Would not hesitate to recommend.

Gorgeous B&B in the centre of Franschhoek. Great large bedroom at the back of the house, lovely breakfasts and a pool to enjoy the sunshine when not out wine tasting or enjoying the great restaurants within 5mins walk. Highly recommended!!

Lovely new aparment with all the amenities just up the road from the main street (15mis walk or 6mins in a car) with all the restaurants and shops. Very secure with small garden and barbacue area seating outside. We bought a great rump steak from Woolworths and cooked it on the Barbie and a nice bottle of wine great fun.
Great place to stay and very comfortable.

We stayed here 2 nights, we were able to park our car on the driveway. The location is great able to walk to restaurants, and the wine tram routes. Room was great and breakfast was very good. The service from the team was great.

We stayed here for 3 nights in January and it was absolutely perfect. The location was ideal and the whole house was beautiful. The decor throughout was lovely and the room and ensuite were spacious, clean and modern. The outdoor seating area and pool were really nice and so tranquil. The breakfast was included and was also really good!
Overall a lovely stay and would highly recommend!

Great choice for a stop in an interesting town. Nice room with walking route of Swellendam. Even the rain didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of the welcome. Great breakfast send off in the morning. Setting by the river with bird activity outside our window.
