“African experiance and guideance”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

very nice and personallity hospitality, really good guideance. From Daan a good overview about South Afrika in the last 20 years. A lot of Background informations around Paarl, the Leeuwenhof, South Afrika and the personal history of Daans Family. We like to come back again. Good evening Events and Dinners, we love the best Braai of Paarl - please more of them!

The hotel is familiy managed leading to a warm atmosphere. Very nice place to stay when in the vine region. Good value for money compared to many overprized vineyards in the Stellenbosch region.

This is the right place for open minden people that love to hang out in a familiar atmosphere, enjoying an awsome braai and some bottles of vine while discussing the good sides of life.

Special recommendation: enjoy the homemade Shiraz !!!

A personal statement to all "high class travelers" (based on the experience with some people we met there): This is not a 5 star superior hotel - and I believe they don't want to be - so if you come here, don't behave bitchy and give bad ratings. The absolutely correct high rating comes from the special experience as a combination of the nice estate, the warm atmosphere and excellent food.

Well what can I say about our stay except ….. fantastic. Daan organised our parties accommodation with ease and we were certainly vey well looked after by not only Daan but the rest of his family that also run the Estate. We have a great night with the Estate tour, wine tasting and a superb Braai around a great log fire. The food served in the evening was of exceptional quality and the four Farm Cottages and one room that we booked we could not fault. We were made to feel extremely welcome and loved the personal family feel that we enjoyed with our stay. If we have the Pan African shoot again in Paarl next year we are definitely going back.

Room Tip: All rooms are good

We booked for one evening but wished we could stay longer. Rooms spacious and comfortable, and the aircon was very welcome at the height of summer. Delicious breakfast and wonderfully welcoming staff!
