My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Leeu Estates June 3-6, 2021. This was our second trip to Franschoek, so we knew what to expect going into the quaint, beautiful town, but we were absolutely blown away when we arrived at Leeu Estates! First of all, the property is absolutely stunning from the minute you drive up! The fall foliage was gorgeous! Check in was very easy, and we were able to go to our room upon arrival. Wow - the room was spectacular! Very spacious and spotless! When we opened our door to the balcony we were greeted with the most beautiful view. It was majestic... The concierge service was AMAZING. They helped me get a reservation with the spa onsite, and it did not disappoint! Definitely go while you're there. They also let us order the most amazing cheese tray beforehand, too, so it was ready right after our massages! Aside from that, they helped us with dinner reservations & anything else we needed. The shuttle service is great! Ethan took us off the property and to town whenever we needed. He even took us to get to go food at Tuk Tuk and waited while we were in the restaurant grabbing the food. Everyone we met there was incredibly eager to help and friendly! Breakfast was the best...The menu is plenty big and the small buffet plentiful. I loved getting green juice and tea every morning! We also had mimosas one morning which was a very nice treat. Lastly, one of my favorite parts was having a fire made for us each night in our room. It was so relaxing! We loved the turndown service and just chilling in our room after a long day of wine tasting. We cannot wait to go back and cannot recommend this hotel enough! It is so worth it!

We stayed in LEEU before and came back. It was not easy to find the right time in the Covid year. For us it is one of the very best hotels and estates you can stay in South Africa. Personnel, rooms or better: Apartments, restaurants, gardens, Spa and Gym - we really cannot say what could be made better in all of this. The new restaurant La Petite Colombe is certainly one of the outstanding experiences you can have in SA. Perfect! We will come back again and again.

Everything was a treat from booking through to events. Nothing was to much trouble. Food was excellent and facilities modern. Brilliant art all over the place round off the sense of well being. Arranged a picnic with our family but had to change to be inside due to light drizzle. All managed with a smile.

We visited Leeu Estates during our tuk tuk tour in Franschhoek. We have been treated by a guided tour of the property, the hotel, the garden and the art gallery. This is an amazing place which worth the visit.
