Leonie and her staff are a breath of fresh air! There is simply no limit to the extent of their hospitality. Their friendliness and charm are refreshing and welcoming and I will be going there again - any future trips to South Africa will be incomplete without staying there for a few nights to recharge.
I had a busy month booked in SA visiting family and trying to give my boys a taste of South Africa as it was their first visit. In between all of this we were looking forward to recharging at Eikendal - and we did nothing less! Despite the 30 degrees on a daily basis - the nice airconditioned rooms were bliss, with the most beautiful scenery to go with it.
We were given tips on where to go for the kids that would suit us too (maps even printed off for us) and one night when I wanted to eat in after buying my own ingredients - we were given everything to do so - including full use of the kitchen!!
We stayed in a Junior Suite this time - which is worth the extra money for such a lovely sized place.
The beds are FANTASTIC! perfectly soft and massive (I know I've mentioned this before - but its so important on holiday when you have the best bed in the world at home!)
The beauty of Stellenbosch coupled with the hospitality of the charming Leonie and the gorgeous accommodation is just a recipe for perfect relaxation!
If you are looking for somewhere to go that encompasses everything beautiful and charming about the winelands then Eikendal is the place for you - young or old, its just perfect!
