wonderful honeymoon stay”

Leeu Estates was the perfect place to relax during our honeymoon trip. Amazingly comfortable room, you really have everything you'd need for a relaxing staycation - super comfortable pillows, great restaurant for dinner (would be a bit repetitive to do dinner and lunch there though since menu is the same), beautiful own vineyard, short wine tasting on site (not able to order food though), and spa / gym on site. Their shuttle can also take you into downtown Franschoek which had a number of cute boutique shops. Staff were so helpful and friendly, especially Abie. We decided to stay here in between our safari trip and our hiking trip, and the stay was just so comfortable. Highly recommend.

Stunning 5 star hotel in Franschoek”

The staff are the key to this wonderful place-they cannot do enough for you. Set in its own vineyard and with beautiful gardens, it is a haven of tranquillity. The Owner obviously has a passion for sculpture as there are lots of wonderful sculptures in the grounds. The shuttle service into Franschoek means you never need to use your car and have a drink or two with dinner in Franschoek without worrying about driving back
