“Humaness at large in Cape Town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

Let me state straight off that I have been doing business with this property for eleven years. I met the owners then who are still there now at a travel trade function and on learning of their personal ethos decided to go & have a look at their offering. Since 2002 I have placed many domestic & international clients with them & have stayed over myself on numerous occassions. So why do I only put pen to paper now ? Good question and the possible answer has to do with sustainability of hospitality I believe. Leeuwenvoet ( ' lions foot ' in English ) House is in the hands of a couple who care about their staff & guests. Their Team is inculcated to live up to this great hospitality ethos and as such each guest is provided with an exceptional level of personal service be you a first timer to Africa or a regular visitor. Positioned within close walking distance to many restaurants ( Millers Thumb if my favoutrite sixty meters away ) , the V & A Waterfront and local motorway access, here is just about the most the most central location to be at within Cape Town. As an added bonus, they built a purpose built deck with full views of Table Mountain and a few steps away from their plunge pool. Warmth of human connectivity, quietly confident in their offering and together for many years Team Leeuwenvoet holds pole position for me in Cape Town.

Room Tip: Its a city centre hotel so try & secure a room in their ' new wing ' or furthest from th...

When you meet giggly staff which are not afraid to share the kitchen with you and present help when help is needed that's when you know you are at a good place! Each room is individually designed in both colour and style, good and secure parking, smiley staff, grande breakfast and an excellent hostess, not far from " downtown" with lots of dining places around the house. Have a picknick on top of the roof with the Pool and the stunning view to the Mountain....can I say more? We loved it, thanks Helena and Rod!!!!

Room Tip: Up on the second level, first room to the left or the last one on the left side, has a huge bathtub!

We had a good stay here! The people are nice and helpful. The rooms are large and clean. Maybe a little bit aged but correct. The pool and breakfast are very good! The location is very good, a few minutes walk from long street and the park! With parking facility!

We are a couple and we stayed at this lovely guesthouse twice for a total of 4 nights. Service, clanliness, breakfast were great. A beautiful old house with an overview on Table Mountain. Rooms are clean, big, with a lot of light. Breakfast is luxuriousy. A great address, really. Located 15 min walk from Long street, we think this is one of the best places to stay in CT.
