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 .

This historic farm house is sited between Stellenbosch and a short distance to Franschhoek. Simon, the host who is so knowledgeable on the historical facts gave us a history lesson on the estate that my wife and I stand amazed. The place is certainly very peaceful and well maintained. Breakfast was fresh and loving prepared by the cook. We were... More

My sister and I spent 2 nights at Lekkerwijn recently and fell in love with the beautiful old home, the gorgeous antique furniture and the lovely gardens which were full of bright red autumn leaves. Simon, the owner, made us feel so welcome and chatted to us like old friends! On top of that upon our late arrival on the... More

We enjoyed an night at Lekkerwijn, our kids slept in a separate bunk bed room, we had a very comfortable room in this amazing old home. The breakfast was good and the hosts even provided us with a bottle of wine which in the end they did not charge us for. Very hospitable nice place to stay in the wine... More

Staying with visiting friends for one night at Lekkerwijn, we had a wonderful experience. We were greeted with open arms and immediately upgraded to some of their best rooms at no added cost. Two of us stayed in the Old Nursery Room located inside the main house. The furnishings took us back to an era of grandeur. The comfortable beds... More
