This is a beautifully preserved Dutch colonial house that has not changed much in the last century. Manager Geoff did everything possible to enhance our visit and the rest of his staff is warm and friendly. The location is perfect for everything in the wine country, vineyards and nearby gardens. Old-world charm, beautiful architecture and sublime wooden furniture. Value for... More

We will cherish the memories of our stay here for a very long time. The reasonable research we did before booking a stay at Lekkerwijn just did not prepare us for what we discovered, which was the most fabulous atmospheric manor house, with excellent accommodation and service. Some nearby wine estates charge you to tour their manor house, here you... More

We stayed 2 nights at Lekkerwijn and really enjoyed it. It's one of the most memorable accomodations of our self-drive trip van Jo'burg to Cape Town. A beautiful house, owned by the same family for 5 generations. Breakfast is good, we enjoyed having the breakfast at one big table with other guests. Most of all we'd like to thank thank... More

We all descended on LekkerWijn for my sisters wedding. We practically booked out all the accomodation. Geoff, the manager was amazing. He went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and to help us with babysitters, restaurant bookings, bbq facilities etc etc. We all had an amazing week at Lekkerwijn and look forward to the next time.

My 3 sisters and I had a wonderful 4-night stay in the "Ballroom" and really enjoyed the walks around the farm style property, our tour of the 17th century home complete with antiques and wine on the stoep with the owners and manager. Although we had chosen the coldest weekend of the year to visit we managed to keep toasty... More

What a charming place and hosts! Such a pleasant place even in the cold and wet Cape winter. A real honour to stay in such a historic place and experience the legance from a by-gone era. Just need to put up with a few creaky floors.

This is a wonderful guesthouse in a beautiful spot with fantastic hospitality. They welcomed me into their family, breakfast is fantastic, the surrounding area is wonderful. Clean rooms, great service, and wonderful communal areas to sit and read. Highly recommended.

We picked this guest house as we wanted to stay in a traditional Cape Style house. We were not disappointed. This house has been in the Pickstone family since the early part of the century and maintains the style and furnishings from that period whilst also having modern facilities such as wi-fi. We were staying in a grand family house.... More

A wonderful Cape Dutch experience with the original furniture. We stayed in the cottage and enjoyed the experience. The grounds offered a great playground for a birthday celebrate our friends birthday. Great host and a wonderful tour of the main house .
