Reviewed 30 December 2013

My partner and I checked into the hotel on the 20 December and departed on the 22 December. It was a stunning stay! Samuel was always smiling and willing to assist with any questions about the area. The room was also lovely and we have already recommended our stay at Life & Leisure with our friends :)

An excellent services. Everything from arrival to departure was excellent. Couldn't have ask for more. Excellent rooms and breakfast. Your DSTV channels are too limited. Apart from that I will say Life & Leisure is a place to be if you find yourself in Stellenbosch and you are looking for a B & B.

Right from the start it was not "as described" on the internet. No map on where the accommodation was at it is not at the legal address of the booking. Toilet ran all night, light bulbs burnt out, cracked wine glasses, fridge so iced up the door would not close and hardly any coffee supplies. Add to that an owner who when you have a complaint wont deal with you personally -- rather gets the workers to deal with you......very disappointing......

Life and Leisure is a blend of modern and traditional. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was healthy and tasty with superb service. I would definitely stay here again.

Reviewed 6 January 2013

We stayed 4 nights at Life and Leisure, and the location has it's positive and negatives. Our apartment was a good size, spacious enough for 2 people and well stocked if you were self catering. The apartment is overlooking an oak tree lined street, with various cafes and restuarants below, which is ideal if you want to explore the town, eat out at night and not have to worry about driving, and there was secure parking. The room was well appointed, but the only real negative would be the noise from the streets below, as I don't believe the windows have double glazing, so you hear everything, from morning till night. Not the ideal place for an afternoon nap and you may have an early start when the cleaners are out cleaning the streets. The bathroom is a bit small, with only 1 basin, but the patio was a good size, and nice spot to enjoy a cool glass of wine. Overall, the location is excellent and I would recommend it.
