We enjoyed a great weekend at Lekkerwijn but it was really made enjoyable by Peter Hall the manager, the staff and especially Castle the dog. The self catering rooms are 3 Star in a very old building so don't go there expecting a Sun City décor etc. The inside rooms are 4 star.Go to relax and enjoy and discover how... More

It is difficult to know where to start with this review. Simon was the perfect host. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel like part of the family. He helped us with tips on where and how to visit local attractions (e.g. Boschendal, Lynx winerie) and in no time we felt at home. Thoroughly recommended for couples,... More

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
