Reviewed 10 December 2017

I stayed at this property for a few nights while attending a wedding on a nearby property. This part of the Western Cape remains as beautiful as I remember from my prior visits, and I recommend De Leeuwenhof to those looking for a friendly welcome and a peaceful retreat. The family and staff clearly take great pride in running this property, and their attentiveness and willingness to help guests with all manner of needs and questions came through time and again. The accommodations are clean and well maintained, and each room has its own character.

Dear Matthew,

Thank you for your positive review and it was a pleasure having you.

As a family run guesthouse/hotel, we try to make sure all our guests are looked after like friends and all demands they might have are being full-filled.

De Leeuwenhof dates back to 1714 and that is what gives the peaceful atmosphere.

We look forward having you again and we then will celebrate your return with a nice cold glas of our white wines.

Kind regards,
\

45 minutes from cape town airport, in the midst of the wine estates , along a lane throug fruit trees we arrived at the leeuwenhof. It is a complex with in the middle a flowered garden with some maybe century old tropical trees . The rooms are in spacious and have a pleasant comfortable somewhat colonial style with terrace in front. Breakfast and diner are served in the half open dining room besides a swimingpool. Very relaxing and cosy atmosphere. very good chef. Half a hour drive took us to Stellenbosch and to the northeast to Bain pass. Beautiful scenery.

Dear Hans,

Thank you for your positive review.

We take great pride in making all our guests feel welcome.

The Leeuwenhof dates back to 1714 and that gives the great atmosphere.
We are glad you liked the kitchen and dinner around the big pool and we make sure we have the right ingredients and best wines.

Thank you again for your kind words and we will, as always, let our team know.

Kind regards,

A quaint guesthouse with self-catering cottages that are clean and spacious. Check-in and check-out was easy and the hosts at reception and at the bar were very warm and friendly. The pool area was comfortable and very inviting for a day of relaxation. The dinner was the highlight: a three-course meal that was available to guests at an additional cost. There was only one option for the main dish (changes daily), but it was done superbly. Breakfast was also excellent, and included in the room rate. If you're a couple or small family looking to get away and relax, this is the place and is incredible value for money.

Thank you for your very enthousiastic review and we are glad we were able to serve you well.

We are glad you liked our dinner option. We only cater for our in-house guests and that is why we do not have many options...but the ones we offer should be perfect.

Thank you for your comments and we look forward having you again.

Kind regards,

The welcome at De Leeuwenhof was very warm and made us feel at home immediately. Nice shady terrace in front of the room, clean pool, good drinks at the bar by the pool and nice dinner and breakfast. The owners personally take the time to chat with the guests, give valuable advice for the next round of Winetasting and Sightseeing. What more could you ask for.

We stayed in very different accommodations during our trip, tented camps, lodges, hotels, holiday homes but the De Leeuwenhof Estate is a very unique place which would not fit in any category. We were guests of a super friendly family who runs a guava farm. Not only that we got very helpful recommendations with regard to our day tour, Daan and his family also allowed an unique insight into the live in South Africa. The room was very comfortable and the setting is lovely. The breakfast was very good with home-baked bread, very delicious! The service is outstanding! Even the car was washed since it looked quite dirty from the days before!

Thank you very much for your very positive review.

We are happy, we could make you share our passion for South Africa.

De Leeuwenhof is a historic setting dating back to 1714 and the farm is still a very productive fruit farm. The atmosphere we try to create is one of sharing and for that we do 2-3 times a week a farm-tour whereby we tell guests the history of the place. This offers great in-sight of how it worked and works nowadays.

Besides farming, we offer the guesthouse facilities and the combination actually makes it an unique experience.

Again we thank you for your kind words and we look forward in having you again.

regards,

Daan van Leeuwen Boomkamp
