Lovely central location. Great service and a superb breakfast. The host was very helpful. I cannot recommend it highly enough. A short stroll into town. The room was great. Lovely garden with a pool, which unfortunately was a little cool for this time of year but would be great in summer. We will return!

From the flawless check-in to the painless check-out this was a great experience. Great location - within walking distance of great restaurants and pubs and shopping. Comfortable room, nice view. Swimming pool for the warmer afternoons. Informative, friendly manager. And the on-site parking is VERY important. We'll be back!

This was our second stay with James, who is a natural host who really cares about his guests. The location, pool and garden and the rooms are all superb. We had a garden room with patio which was beautiful. The breakfast is excellent. All in all look no further, this is the place !

We stayed in room 5 on the lower level near the pool. The room is basic but comfortable. The wardrobe was limited with hanging space and a single shelf only. The bathroom was on the smaller side and clean but looking a little old. The bed also had the telltale dips from sleeping a number of bodies over time but... More

Hi , Thank you for your review. I have thought about your comments and agree on certain parts. The mattress is only a year old, so new by hospitality standards. The cupboard does need more shelves so I will be looking into that. I didnt really understand your comment about having to walk past rooms to get to your room... More

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing stay at Maison Chablis. The location is just perfect - we walked everywhere from there. Very peaceful and comfortable; with our host helping us in every way needed.

End to end it is a great experience. Host is extremely friendly and helpful, the room was beautiful and the breakfast really good. It is situated centrally - walking distance from good restaurants. Also close to top wine farms and the French Huguenot monument / museum.
