“Easy walking distance to great eats”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

We had room 1003 the first room on the right past the registration desk, nice room, carpet needed cleaning, beds were very hard. Light from smoking area shined in thru bathroom all night long. Bathroom had glass window in door only slightly frosted so did not block light when closed. Also guests arriving late at night could be heard in hallway if they were not cautious to be quiet. Pillows were soft down. Breakfast was cook to order and the cook did a fabulous job of getting fried eggs, omelet s or poached eggs just right. Staff was friendly and helpful. We were around the corner from millers Thumb Resturant and an easy 5 minute walk to Nelson's Eye a great steak house

Thank you very much for letting us know how you felt about your stay at Leeuwenvoet House. Our staff and the cook especially appreciate your positive feedback.
We do regret, however, that you did not bring to our attention the issues which annoyed you. If we had known that the night light disturbed you, we would merely have closed the solid shutter on the outside of the bathroom window and the problem would have been solved.
Carpeting is a perpetual source of concern in hotels, guest houses and public spaces. We are now considering removing the carpeting to reveal the original wooden floors of the house. We would really appreciate if you would let us know whether that would be a solution in your opinion? Of course, the side-effect of having wooden floors, is that it may be noisy ...
We trust that these issues did not detract from enjoying the delights of Cape Town and that you will remember your visit to our beautiful city with fondness.

Cape Town in the winter is great. We spent a couple weeks there in June, and the highlight of our trip was our stay at Leeuwenvoet House. The beautifully restored Victorian homes are in a vibrant and safe neighborhood, close to many good restaurants, shopping and lovely neighborhoods to explore.

Our room was well appointed, large and quiet. The bedding was luxurious. After a busy day, we enjoyed coming "home" for a cup of tea and some quiet time. In the afternoon, we sat on the deck which overlooks Table Mountain and enjoyed a glass of wine. Allow lots of time to savor the outstanding breakfasts. They are unbelievable! In addition, to a large buffett, including pastries, yogurt, fresh fruit, cereals,and juices, guests are given menus each morning featuring delicious breakfast items. Our breakfasts tided us over to supper.

The staff was very attentive to our needs and promptly provided assistance. On our trip to South Africa, I dropped my smart phone and shattered the screen. Helena, the inn keeper, found a cell phone repair shop (just around the corner) and I was able to promptly make the repair. We hope to return to Cape Town as soon as possible and we will certainly stay at Leeuwenvoet House when we do.

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!
