Many of the reviews mention this as being a hotel, it is not, it is a guest house and it is important to know this difference. We stayed for three nights here and very much enjoyed our stay. I believe that the room in the original house are larger and probalby the best furnished to it might be worth requesting... More

I recently travelled to Cape Town on business and our regular Guest House was fully booked so they gave us Leeuwenvoet's details. It was really great. The staff were really friendly and accomodating, and the rooms beautiful, clean and very comfy. The breakfasts were fantastic and they served the best filter coffee I have tasted in a very long time.... More

The owner and staff went beyond their jobs to be helpful. They were very nice and always cheerful. The breakfasts were very nice You could see Table Mountain from in front of the guest house. Whenever we needed something the staff offered to help and always with a smile on their face

This is a well-maintained guest house just off Kloof Street. Close to the centre of everything but quiet and with very good security for guests and their cars. The staff were friendly and very welcoming. Our room was large and very comfortable with good air con. The deck was a great sun trap and the plunge pool a welcome cooling-off... More

Stayed here three nights. Nice rooms and very friendly and helpful staff. Wi-Fi great (free), breakfast (included) even better! Very secure place as well. Location a plus - 50 meters down on a side street from Kloof street. Nice view of Table Mountain and just a short cab ride to the cable car. There is a clean, small pool on... More

We live in the deep south and often go into the city on Saturday for dinner and spend the night. We have stayed in a number of guest houses and like to try a new one each time. Unfortunately Leeuwenvoet was not quite up to the standard we were used to. Considering that it was in the same price range... More

I stayed for two nights with a colleague. In my room the Aircon and TV were not working. The bed was too hard as well. Also need to mention that to get to the rooms upstairs with luggage was a challenge and there was no one to help when we checked inn. Great view to Table Mountain from the pool... More

Leeuwenvoet House is within walking distance of the city centre - even the Waterfront is not too far away. There are quite a few restaurants and bars just around the corner. The house itself is pretty and the rooms are spacious, although it was sometimes a little bit noisy. Staff is also very friendly and helpful and there is a... More

The guest house is ideally situated within walking distance to the city, restaurants and public transport. Our room was clean, neat and big enough, the bathroom was just as good. Breakfast is a meal to look forward to as the ladies of Leeuwenvoet House whip up a made to order scrumptious meal. The staff are warm and helpful and per... More
