We had a fantastic 2 night stay here! The rooms were great and the place itself was situated in a beautiful, tranquil location. The only down side into coming here is that at some point you have to leave!! We certainly wished we'd stayed longer! Thank you so much for your great hospitality!😊 Charlotte &! Graham

Room smelled damp on arrival, however large enough and reasonably well-equipped. Pool was small with crowded deckchairs and breakfast tables.

What a beautiful place! Quiet, peaceful and clean. We stayed for 2 days and had such a lovely stay! Dan and his family made us feel welcome from the first minute. The whole farm is beautiful, the pool a little paradise and the food really good. We cannot wait to come back!

Small scale accomodation with ample opportunity to meet other guests. One can either stay with ones own compagny or mixing with other guests. Two swimming pools. The Leeuwenhof is situated quietly outside Paarl.

A lovely couple of days spent at De Leeuwenhof. We received a warm welcome on arrival from Tessa whose enthusiasm was just wonderful. She gave us plenty of hints and ideas for places to visit and restaurants to eat at, and was kind enough to book these up for us. The nearby tour of the Nederberg winery was excellent value...
