We loved our two nights in this sumptuous little hotel. If you are using satnav, btw, be aware that it doesn't direct you to the right place (number 12) on the main road.

We have traveled all over but cannot remember as accommodating and attentive to detail as this splendid hotel. The room hit every mark perfectly, gave the feeling they truly are interested in your comfort. They simply could do no better. We enjoyed every moment. And the food was first rate.

We had only scheduled one night at this hotel but it was so nice we wished we could have stayed longer. A boutique hotel with only 12 rooms, it provided an excellent service. The quality of furnishings and fittings was excellent, considerable thought had been given to the decor, a most comfortable bed and choice of pillows, the contents of...

We could not have been happier with our three-night stay at Leeu House. It was an oasis of quiet calm and beauty. Wherever you looked, each detail was impeccably tasteful, never pretentious or stuffy. The staff was welcoming, accommodating, friendly, and helpful - and we also appreciated the complimentary driving service to/from restaurants within 10 kilometers. We can unequivocally recommend...

Stayed at Leeu House. Delightful, well considered style, decor, art, food and service. Combine that with the collection attractions, Leeu Estates, Marigold, Le Quatier Francais, Tuk Tuk brewing company and you have a winner. Brilliant addition to the Franschhoek business, hospitality and wine and beer economy for all concerned...staff, guests, visitors, locals etc. Well done Mr Singh and the staff...

Stayed 2 nights at Leeu House ideally located on the main street in Franschoek. Staff were very welcoming but could do with more training, nothing major just attention to detail and listening to guests requests before taking action. Our room was well appointed, and the gardens and swimming pool beautiful. Lots to do and plenty of restaurants within walking distance...
