Spent 3 nights in this self catering apartment in the heart of Stellenbosch. Perfectly situated to enjoy the many restaurants, bars and shops of Stellenbosch without using a car. The apartment is well equipped and although the rooms were small the beds were comfortable. A little bit noisy with the student revelers.

I had an awesome stay at the Life and Leisure guest house. The stay was awesome and my partner feels the same. The breakfast was excellent too. The only advice I'd give is to have more presence in terms of staff. I was told to check in by 8pm or there'd be no one to assist us. When looking for... More

Can't fault this guesthouse - excellent location, friendly staff and the best breakfast ever! Lots of lovely touches like the free carafe of sherry in the room each night. Things must have changed since earlier reviews as we had no problem going elsewhere to check in or mess around with finger prints and had free wifi.

It was very good value for money. Good facilities and especially good breakfast and friendly staff. It is located in a central suburb. The layout with swimming pool and lounge to receive friends made the weekend special.

The reception was quick and friendly. We were shown to our clean room and was able to rest and freshen up before walking into town for exploring and dinner. Breakfast was delicious and checking out hassle-free.

The one thing that makes Life and Leisure a dream to stay at is the staff. I have never met a more friendly and caring people while travelling on business. Breakfast was incredible, and as soon as you've ordered your coffee on the first morning....you are set for the rest of your trip. The beds are SUPER comfy and the... More

The room was lovely but the outside area was dirty and unappealing. You have to pick up and drop off your keys in an entirely different location. They are pretending to be a 4 star establishment but they can't get simple things right like having the right info in the rooms or getting my tittle right when they request a... More

We stayed in apartment 224 for two nights. Overall, it was not a bad place to base ourselves for a couple of days exploring the wine region. We did find it a bit expensive for what it was. Specific pros and cons: Pros: -Great location in the centre of town, and close access to shopping and restaurants. -Friendly check-in staff-... More
