Hello Daan, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at De leeuwenhof estate. thank you so much for accommodating us on the last minute. Thank you for sharing the history behind the De Leeuwenhof and for showing us around your estate. The atmosphere of your hotel was peaceful and this is exactly what my husband and I needed. As mentioned to you, we will definitely be booking some time off from work to come and stay at your hotel again and this time with our closest friends. Best regards and stay safe. Gamieda & Douglas Tim

Responded 06 Apr 2021
Thank you for your very positive review. We are still here after the enormous knock we had to endure due to the Covid lockdown and strickt regulations, which cut us of for almost a full year. Now we are geared to go full blast and regain the visitors trust and appreciation. Thanks again. Daan
