“I have a "Mother Teresa" there!”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

They've got only 15 rooms. I wish they had more. You kind of check in to "home". You have keys that allow you to go and come. They make breakfast in the kitchen and you kind of chat while you eat. Ask of Teresa, she is a nice little motherly lady .. that not just treats you, but spoils you.

When I checked out, they stowed my luggage for 3 days, when I had to go to Mandela's funeral. And when I came back, she welcomed me... like her child.

For once, I felt bad to leave. Plus, the lady owner speaks French! C'est super, non?

Room Tip: I slept on the rooms on the roof. The wind was louder there. Next time, I will choose the rooms belo...

We enjoyed Leeuwenvoet House for 3 nights on our first trip to Cape Town. We got in very late at night from Nairobi but no worries. The room was comfortable, if not large. The breakfasts were lovely with lots to eat in a friendly communal atmosphere. We were able to safely walk to different excellent restaurants nearby through a nice older neighborhood.

In late September the weather should have been kinder but instead we were met by a cold wind. In contrast, the welcome that we received at Leeuwenhoek was warm, friendly and most helpful. The bedrooms were comfortable and the breakfast spreads memorable. We were totally satisfied and will make it our target when next in CapeTown.

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.
