Hi Peter, There are no public transport options for you to get from the city to Franschhoek, unless you catch the City Sightseeing hop on hop off bus that starts in the city and goes there via Bloubergstrand, and then just not return to the city, but it's expensive and unlikely that their one departure per day will coincide with your time of disembarking. Your best option, if you don't want to hire a car, is to use Uber. It's the most cost effective and doesn't have to be booked in advance. If you do want to book in advance you can use any of the regular shuttle companies like City Shuttles (0827071135), Centurion (021 934 8281) or Sport24HRS (021 447 4444). They will all quote you a fixed price for the drive to Franschhoek. They will also pick you up again for your return trip to the airport. Enjoy your stay in my beautiful country.

Is there a gym in your hotel
Dear 510330, Leeu House unfortunately does not have a gym, however our sister property found next door, Le Quartier Francais, has a small gym on the property. Our flagship property, Leeu Estates, offers a large fully equipped gym with complementary transfers from Leeu House.
