Very Happy With Our Stay

Review of Leeu House
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 03 Jun 2024
Second time in Franschhoek and wanted to try something in town close to the action.

Location is really good if you want to walk around and not have to drive or take shuttles.

Service was very friendly and good if a bit unpolished. Food for breakfast and dinner were great.

Rooms are all nice and vary depending on category. The suite by the pool is very nice and gets lots of light. Smaller rooms don't have views but still get plenty of light.

Overall we thought it was good value and definitely recommend.

Traveling with my mother, stayed in room number 5 for three nights.

The Pros:
The room made a good first impression, although there was a very strong smell of air freshener. Beds were comfy, room was clean, housecoat & slippers available, and it had a solid tea and coffee station. Reliable housekeeping and turndown service. Breakfast was consistently good.
The courtyard off the back of the room was like a private oasis - a great place to read or pass the time if you need a break from it all. A comfier chair or chaise would have been nice, but not necessary by any stretch.
Location in Franschhoek is fantastic - easy walking to shops, cafés, and necessities (grocery store, pharmacy, and post office within a couple of blocks).
The service was excellent - staff were attentive and kind.

The Cons:
The air freshening spray was extremely strong, and it aggravated my allergies. I asked staff to stop using it, and I had to leave a window and the doors to the courtyard open for several hours for the scent to settle. Unfortunately, it became clear the freshener is used to mask a foul odor - I couldn’t place the smell, but it was strong. Again had to leave a window and doors open for several hours a day to make it tolerable - there are no screens, so you do this recognizing it’s a risk with flies and wildlife.
The television only had Netflix. Normally, this would be a nice bonus, but we found it inconvenient that we were unable to watch local evening news, etc. since there was no cable.

I really enjoyed this hotel, the staff is perfectly well trained, they call you by the last name, very cosy hotel with very few rooms. Worth every cent. The breakfast menu is perfect , but the buffet could use some more options. Beside that it is a 10 out of 10!

Room tip: I always parks the car in front of the hotel, but they a parking place on the back and always staff for picking it up really fast!

Stayed in Leeu house for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon. Beautiful building with lovely interior and exteriors how ever the room was slightly underwhelming, lacked character and disappointingly no view & blurred windows which was a shame given the surroundings.

Location was perfect at the top of the main village road and was approx 10 mins from the wine tram station. Lots of bars and restaurants on the doorstep.

Staff were very welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was either buffet or hot choices from a menu which was lovely. The bar area was very quiet with no one sitting around in the evening which lacked ambiance.

The pool area was the highlight with nice views of surrounding mountains.

Room tip: Make sure to do the complimentary wine tasting at the Great Heart Wines right next door

We really enjoyed our stay at Leeu House. I would recommend it anyone looking for a higher-end lodge in the area. The staff were friendly and breakfast was a welcome slow (as it should) start to the day. I think just avoid the rooms over the top of the pub.
