Reviewed 7 December 2017

One of the first things we noticed after we entered the gates of the estate was the scent of jasmine. The air is perfumed there with flowers which is symbolic of the quiet, restful, colonial feel of this remarkable place. We spent 3 days there in the Pomegranate Cottage just relaxing and enjoying the beautiful surroundings--walking through the gardens and vineyards, swimming in the pool, eating the wonderful food and tasting the wines. The cottage was a cute, tiny house with an excellent bed and lovely stone shower in the bath. The ventilation could have been better in the bathroom, however. The air conditioning functioned quietly and well and the service everywhere was very good. We had dinner in two restaurants of the estate, the Garden Room and the Dining Room, and really enjoyed the meals in both. It was clear from the immaculate condition of the room and the public areas that the hotel is new and a lot of care has gone into its development and upkeep. We would return at any time.

We had a flight at midnight and had been staying in Franschoek, so we came here for the day, there is an infinity pool overlooking the vineyards and mountains, and we added some treatments to our day. We finished off with a stunning meal in the restaurant. the sunset is wonderful from here. Unfortunately we couldn't enjoy a too leisurely evening as we were heading off to the airport but we can recommend this location for a future stay, and the spa was gorgeous. I had a massage that sent me to sleep which was exactly what i wanted!!

My husband treated us to a couples connect Spa experience at the Leeu estate. From start to finish we were treated so well. The couples treatment room is beautiful and our therapists were wonderful. The estate is absolutely breathtaking and extremely well kept. After a few hours in the Spa we had lunch in the restaurant and again the service was world class. The food in the restaurant is also very good. We will definitely return.
