My wife and I have stayed at Lekkerwijn for some 10 years in February and feel we are part of the family as we are so well looked after. Apart from the excellent hospitality the building itself and its furnishings are of historic importance and the location is quiet and peaceful. We are just booking for next year!

My wife and I only had one night in the wine region, but wished we had stayed longer once we visited Lekkerwijn. The setting was tranquil and the house had a wonderful rustic charm; our room was quaint and the bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in. There is a small pool in the garden where...

Lekkerwijn is a beautiful building in a beautiful setting. Although it’s a drive down into Franschhoek, the benefit of this distance from town is the space and quiet that comes with it. That said, you can still comfortably walk to three wine estates from the accommodation without much effort and it’s easy enough to get a taxi in the evenings.... More

Thank you for your nice review. We are delighted that you enjoyed Lekkerwijn and our hospitality. Your feedback about the room is very helpful and we have already installed a larger fan for the very hot days. We are also putting in mosquito screens on the windows. We look forward to seeing you again one day. Kind regards Geoff More

We so appreciated the superb hospitality at Lekkerwijn. Our time there was one of the highlights of our S.African adventures. The history of the house is both fascinating and authentic and I was told it is available on line. Geoff's warm, informative, and attentive guidance regarding S. African culture, history and neighboring activities were an added bonus.

Lekkerwijn is a cosy B&B situated very conveniently just outside the main road of Franshhoek. I booked out most of the rooms for my bridal party over our wedding weekend in March and could not have been happier - from the minute I started liaising with Geoff on the logistics for all the guests, I was looked after - he...

We stayed here for three nights with our 2 and 4 year old and wish we could have stayed longer. Geoff gets the balance just right of being incredibly helpful but not intrusive. The staff were all so friendly to our kids and made us feel very welcome. Overall it was a very relaxing stay in a lovely laid back... More

What a wonderful place to stay - quiet, cool with gorgeous Cape breezes - no need for air conditioning when you have windows opening out onto the mountains beyond. Geoffrey was welcoming, helpful and charming. The most comfortable bed I have slept in in years ! A beautiful Cape house with lovely antique furniture. We loved it

Geoff is a wonderful host who makes you feel very welcome and will help you out with suggestions of where to visit, eat and even sort out your broken down car! I loved the style and history of the place - our room was large and full of original furniture & fittings with the most amazing view across the mountains.... More

Brilliant host, Jeff could not do enough to make us welcome. Just what we wanted. Quite, yet near to where we wanted to visit. Good recommendation from them on where to visit. Visit to Wine farm next for picnic and concert. All went well. We had a self chattering cottage which was fine a bit warm but they provided a... More
