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

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
