We got married on June 20th at Lekkerwijn. We looked in several places, and even though the size was not what we really wanted, the moment we walked in and met Peter we were sold! Peter was the most helpful and welcoming of all the people we met while looking for a venue. From helping us organize our wedding, to... More

I had a weekend getaway wedding at Lekkerwijn. Peter was so accommodating and made the whole process so easy! Down to opening up their storage to help decorating. Even while my bridemaids were running around stressed looking for something he calmed everyone down and helped with as much as possible. Everyone loved the stay and the food served. It was... More

Thank you for your warm hospitality and our beautiful room. We were sorry that we never booked for longer. Your warm fireplace was truly amazing and our red wine tasted heavenly. Breakfast was tasty and your kitchen ladies were very friendly. We will certainly be back

Lovely stay, unfortunately only an overnight. Gorgeous room, stunning views and wonderful hospitality. Needed a footstool to climb into the biggest bed I've ever come across - felt like a queen! Definitely recommended.

Spent the weekend in the Ballroom cottage. The accomodation is spacious with comfortable beds and a huge lounge area. The only disappointment was that the fireplace was non functional and the TV seemed to be a decoration. The main house is beautiful, especially the dining room. The staff can be commended on their hospitality. They are extremely friendly and made... More

A wonderfu lexperience in a beautiful environment. The bedroom and bathroom we stayed in was beautifully appointed. The furnishings stunning and well preserved. Peter was very informative and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Will certainly be going back. Loved the potbellied pigs, goats although he was a bit unfriendly, he sweetended up when given a treat.

Thank you for your review and for taking time to write and post it. We really appreciate your feedback - even about one of our goats!

Lekkerwjin is a beautiful colonial house in need of some renovations, in a strategic position (halfway between Franschoek and Stellenbosh and close to some of the best wineyards in the area -check absolutely Solms and Delta). We stayed in the Owl Corner, on the first floor, 2 bedroom and one bathroom. Overall we were satisfied though from the website we... More

Exciting experience with Peter Hall (Manager). He went the extra mile with making us feel at home and we had a very pleasant stay. We enjoyed a great weekend, the staff was friendly and helpful and the unexpected visit by a peacock in the courtyard was an extra treat. Castle the dog was gorgeous. Loved all the antiques.
