Stayed 3 nigths at De Leeuwenhof during my business trip around Cape Town.
I can't find one bad thing to say! Beautyful surroundings, fantastic rooms, and a family-like hospitallity, I haven't experienced before anywhere in the world! Daan, Yvonne and Stephan made this stay one to remember. If You need to relax, while on a business trip, this is the place to do it, or invite your customers to a meeting at the Estate.!
Either way, You will get a superb experience!

Welcoming business guests as well as holiday seekers is a complicated matter as both groups seem to have a totally different demand level. What they all have in common is that they are far away from home and seek warmth and comfort and personal attention.
We do our best to make both groups feel welcome like at home and offer them accordingly to their needs within our reach.
We say a big thank you to this guest for his great review and we hope many more will follow..

The accommodation was excellent especially the pool after a hot day, service was impeccable and the food excellent .Yvonne and Daan were brilliant hosts, and we loved the guesthouse animals especially the very friendly dogs - who were very well behaved.
This is an ideal location for travelling around Cape Town areas, Franschhoek, Paarl etc.
Ideally suited to similar middle aged people who want good,quiet surroundings, good company and good food and relaxation.

Was visiting South Africa for a wedding in Paarl. Coming from New York City, we wanted to stay in the quiet country and De Leeuwenhof was perfect! A true B&B with wonderful hospitality. The property's owners are welcoming and really made us feel like true guests in their home. They even arranged a fire-side braii for our group of almost 20. A wonderful experience to end our stay! Rooms are spacious, modern and clean. There are 2 great pools. a delightful staff, and most importantly - great value.

What a wonderful place and warm welcome and introduction by the host family to this beautiful region of Paarl. Super accommodation in the old farmhouse and great breakfasts. Enjoyed Daan and Yvonne's legendary Braai, a nice unexpected treat. Would have loved to stay longer and experience more of this lovely, working estate.

Very comfortable, spacious rooms, beautiful setting, delicious meals. Cater well for vegetarians. it's family run & they pay attention to detail. The only problem is that we can't stay a second night because they're full.

Very nice small hotel in a restored old dutch farm with a couple of the typical cape farm houses of the 18th century and very friendly managed by it's dutch owners Yvonne and Dan. You can feel at home they will take care of you for sure in the best way. Don't miss to have the farm tour and braai in the night, you will learn a lot and can listen to many interesting stories...And of course taste the very good wines and champagnes produced by the Leeuwenhof. Although hided by trees and a fruit plantation you have easy access to Paarl or the Golf courses of Paarl and Peal which are close by. Or just make a tour through the mountains by the exciting pass roads with a wonderfull view. We didn't regret our choice and will come back for sure.
