    Perfect stay for our honeymoon! ”

    My husband and I booked Macaron Guesthouse for the first part of our honeymoon in Franschhoek and absolutely loved our time there. It’s quaint and perfectly situated in a quiet street just off the main road within a three-minute walk. It’s a great spot if you want to be near the Franschhoek Wine Tram ticket booth/pick up and drop off spot, as well as many restaurants. The guesthouse itself is beautiful and cosy, ideal for a quiet stay. The spread at breakfast was superb and the service was stellar. Both Nadia and Shandré are amazing hosts - we loved their friendliness and recommendations on places to eat and visit. All the staff are equally as wonderful. We can’t recommend Macaron Guesthouse enough! Thank you for making our honeymoon so special.

    Fabulous stay”

    We loved Franschoek and we particularly loved the Macaron Guesthouse. It was situated just one road back from the main street and within easy walking distance of the centre of town. The walk to the wine tram pick up was just a 4-5 minute walk. The rooms were lovely, very modern with brilliant amenities. The courtyard and outside seating area were lovely. It was particularly quaint and fitted the bill perfectly. Breakfast could be a little slow if during a particularly busy period, but we didn't care, we were on holiday and this was a perfect find and a perfect stay.

    We were so impressed with this place that we extended our first stay and then made plans to stay another night on our way to Knysna. It’s impossible to fault this place and we will not hesitate to go back.

    Great value for money ”

    The guest house has recently changed name and is now called the Macaron. We had a great stay in Franschhoek. We were originally in room 1 which is a beautiful room, spacious and bright except it is located right next to the front door. We were awake from 5am when the staff traipsed past our door. We requested a change in room which was granted and we were moved to a quieter one at the back, room 8 which was even bigger! The staff were very helpful and the breakfasts were delicious. The two pools were beautiful and the grounds were immaculate. I would definitely stay here again, but request a quiet room at the back of the property!

    Je zit midden in Franschhoek. Net 1 straat achter de hoofdstraat, dus rustig. Personeel, staf en hotel doet super vriendelijk aan. Alle goede restaurants op loopafstand en Macaron boekt voor je. 6 sterren!
