Stayed here for three nights and felt cosseted by the lovely staff. They suggested different restaurants for us and took us there with their own vehicle. Excellent location as the little town itself on the doorstop.

This is an expensive hotel so it should be well appointed and well run. Fortunately, it is both of those things.Set at the end of Franschoek Main Street it is an old Cape Dutch style farmhouse (the old De Rusthof) which has been thoroughly modernised. Beautiful art on display. Informed and efficient staff.
Restaurant is something and nothing but we so many wonderful places to eat in the surrounding area, this is not a drawback!

We arrived in Franschoek and were dissapointed with the original accommodation we passed this place and knew straight away it was just our type of hotel.
Immaculate gardens great location and the most helpful staff ever met. Offered to go get our things from previous accommodation called us by name everytime we met.
As this was our 50th wedding anniversary they arranged breakfast in bed complimentary wine and water in room. Free wine tasting and shuttle bus within a 10k radius.
Room was wonderful comfortable beds terrace and seating outside our room. Great pool and garden area sheer luxury

Room Tip: All rooms are perfect

I can't guarantee many things in life but one thing I am certain of is that I've never stayed anywhere like Leeu House! A stylish and tranquil oasis in the heart of Franschhoek, this hotel is not one to be missed. The staff in the hotel are some of the best I've ever seen, from front of house to housekeeping, groundskeepers and drivers every single member of staff is friendly, professional and will go over and above to personalise their service and make sure that your stay is perfect. I was taken ill midway through our trip and from the moment I mentioned I was unwell the staff were sending me hot water, lemon and honey in bed and dispatched a driver to drive out of town and find me some medicine, something which I am so grateful for as it ensured that being unwell didn't spoil the remainder of our trip. Special mention to the simply outstanding Roxzan at reception who was just fantastically helpful, funny and kind throughout.

The decor of the hotel is just fantastic, we went for a deluxe room and it did not disappoint, likewise the common areas, pool and gardens were fabulous and well appointed. The real beauty of this hotel is it's location which affords you so many options to make the most of your days. Whether it's lounging by the pool, enjoying the lovely and quaint town of Franschhoek or making use of the inclusive driver service to explore further afield and visit restaurant and wine estates within the region, the possibilities really are endless.

One thing which I have seen an awful lot in other reviews is poor feedback about the breakfast. It is clear that Leeu House have worked hard to make changes to breakfast as ours was superb. A lovely selection of fresh fruits, yogurt pastries and juices as well a simple but tasty range of a la carte options was perfect! I can highly recommend the french toast with peppered honey, I will be trying to recreate this at home! For coffee lovers, the coffee is fantastic and the best bit of it all is that you get to enjoy breakfast taking in the beautiful views of the mountains.

It has to be said that the Leeu Collection as a whole is just fabulous. Understated luxury with a keen eye for detail and consistently excellent levels of customer service. We visited the Tuk Tuk microbrewery, Marigold restaurant and spent a day at Leeu Estate enjoying a gorgeous meal, complimentary wine tasting and a relaxing afternoon in Leeu Spa which has the most magnificent pool.

Would I stay here again ... ABSOLUTELY
Are we already planning our next trip ... YOU'D BETTER BELIEVE IT!!!!
