Very comfortable, large bedrooms a pool and good breakfast, so it ticks all the boxes. Secure parking. Colin is a great host...

Rooms were beautiful spotless and freshly decorated in a beautiful classy French theme. Piped TV with most channels and if you wanted more the relaxing room in the main house had...

Le Petit Paris is located in a quiet street just 3 or 4 minutes walk from the main street. The owners are lovely, helpful people and everything about the place is of high quality. Excellent breakfast choice and a good residents' lounge.

Booked some months ago for a wedding party. The property and the bedrooms are in excellent condition, clean and very well appointed. Our hosts were very friendly and accommodating and made every effort including taxi and wine estate bookings. Breakfast was excellent. Only minor gripe would be that our 'honeymoon suite' was very visible in the lower window panes which...

Sadly we only stayed for one night at Le Petit Paris, but it is a great 'value for money' option in a superb location. Colin and Annalise were fabulous hosts that really made us feel welcome and the room we stayed in was charming. Would definitely recommend.

Loved everything about this guest house, we travelled for one month and stayed in nine different locations and this was definitely in the top three. Lovely tastefully decorated, spacious rooms including peaceful outdoor spaces to sit and read. Incredibly friendly and helpful hosts. Perfect location within walking distance to shops and superb restaurants. Secure private parking.

This is a lovely bed and breakfast - very well run by Colin right in the centre of town. The rooms are large, all with pretty views and excellent bathrooms and linen. Breakfast was very good too. Everything you could want in a place to stay.

My girlfriend and I stayed here in Nov-16. The owner/host, Colin, was incredibly helpful with recommendations for Franschhoek and broader SA. He was also kind enough to offer us lifts to and from local restaurants. Location was perfect and the accommodation was just what we needed. Would definitely go back!
