I would recommend Lekkerwijn for families. It is perfectly situated in the triangle between Franschoek, Stellenbosch and Paarl, next to Vinyard Boschendaal, where you can get the best Fresh Bread! We stayed in the both the WineCellar and the Ballroom Cottage. Both cottages are huge and neat. The Animals give the special touch to this place.Our son liked especially the... More

I would highly recommend Lekkerwijn. The owners were lovely people and could not have made our stay better. They helped us find nice restaurants and places to go and were generally just fabulous. It is excellently placed next to a really good wine farm and the vistas are stunning. This is a lovely heritage property and I loved it.

Lekkerwijn is exceptional. It is an extraordinary historic cape dutch farm house and feels like a piece of living history. It is not the over manicured type of guest house you find so often in the Western Cape, it is a beautiful house which has huge character and is a pleasure to stay in. But more importantly the owner Simon... More

We recently had a fantastic week at Lekkerwijn with the whole family, from 15 months to 67 years - over 20 of us! An extremely friendly establishment where we were looked after very well by captain Geoff and the team. From breakfast served with a smile to organised taxi services. The property has great character with a very relaxed and... More

We recently enjoyed a wonderful family break at Lekkerwijn. The Cape Dutch homestead is redolent with history and antiques yet warm, informal and child friendly. Geoff,Ross and Simon are especially welcoming and helpful hosts and the quietness and solitude of the property makes it an excellent antidote from the more touristy nearby Franschhoek and wine farms.Children are especially welcome and...

We recently stayed at Lekkerwijn and thoroughly enjoyed it. The establishment is a stunning cape Dutch home with lots of garden to roam around. We have two young kids and it was incredibly child friendly. Our kids spent hours exploring the farm and the rooms were very spacious. Geoff and Ross made sure we were well looked after and it...

Wonderful three night stay with our baby in early December. The Peacock rooms were great, with the baby having his own room so no creeping around in the darkness! Was fantastic hearing about the history of Lekkerwijn from Simon, whilst manager Geoff had everything under control. The housekeeping staff were also extremely friendly. We were given lots of recommendations for... More

Our host was so sweet and thoughtful. The grounds are beautiful and perfect for a romantic getaway. My friend and I really enjoyed our time there. It's also very clean. Most of the original house has been preserved so it has a beautiful old world charm to it. You can easily call a driver and have them take you to... More

I stayed here as part of a large wedding party. The Manager, Geoff was a fount of local knowledge and was always there to help and assist. The Dutch Colonial residence is a fine example of a comfortable Manorial type place that cannot have changed much for over a century. Family portraits adorn the stairwell and peacocks strut their stuff... More
