It was so cool that had some drinks with friends at the balcony, particularly at night, watched the stars, plenty of stars. The staff are very very nice, friendly and helpful, the breakfast were fantastic, and they could be served in room if request.... More

Second stay, same positive experience, well organised, exceptional staff, lots of effort with breakfast, appreciate extras (snacks and drinks, hand lotion next to bed. Parking could be a problem if too many guests.

It was a very good experience. The room was in perfect condition. I arrived late but the attendee helped me in a professional manner. The location however is in a busy street and its' difficult to get back on the road. The breakfast was super.

I have stayed here a number of times whilst visiting our daughter at Stellenbosch. My husband has also stayed and been upgraded. We love it. The Staff are very friendly and helpful, particularly Etienne.

Property reception felt cluttered and the pool was dirty. Physical property did not relect those on the website fairly. That said the location was good and it was fine for the one night we were there.

We booked in Life & Leisure, friendly staff but the experience was tainted by the fact that the house and apartment is very untidy and generally unclean. Dirty coffee cups and a full ashtray was left at the pool. The floors of the guest house are filthy and look like they were cleaned weeks ago. The inside of the cupboards... More

I had a great stay. The room and hotel were very nice. Staff were very helpful and attentive and the breakfast was also very good. The location was great and if I go back to Stellenbosch I will stay here. The only thing I would change or improve is the WIFI connection even though I still managed to do what... More

We stayed for two weeks with Life and Leisure, the first week in a smart apartment opposite 20 Van Riebeeck St and the second in a luxury one bed flat in town where we were relocated to due to a malfunctioning air con unit. Boy did we land on our feet! The company also does interior design and so they... More

Always a pleasure to stay in Life & Leisure accommodation - my 3rd trip to Stellenbosch Life & Leisure and would definitely book there again. Elegant décor and very secure. The kitchen/kitchenette is a bonus !

the flat was tastefully decorated but far too small for our family. Terrible mosquito's and very hot and airless.need some sort of security on windows. excellent location right in the centre of all the restaurants and shops.
