The Dinners which we have gotten during our stay were all fantastic. A really nice family place.
The personal attention by our hosts Daan, Stefan, Tessa and Yvonne! For diner don't go out, be smart and have it at the Leeuwenhof!
Wonderful place, a gem with excellent food
Not particularly friendly owners but Receptionist was efficient and pleasant
A huge Dankie to Daan and his family. It was a great stay. Excellent atmosphere, especially at the camp fire at night.
Convenient for all wine area. Very helpful hosts. Good standard evening meal.
Would have liked to be able to get a drink later in the evening.
Very good hospetality
Please offer a additional Buffet around the breakfast.
It was all around great and super nice staff. I am sure we will be back.
Restaurant was very good with remarkably good food. Owner was very helpful and a great character. Location good for arrival stay (50min from airport). Cottage suites had all you need inc kitchen. Location near a Township and some disturbance with dogs barking during night, otherwise would not have known.
We loved the layout of the rooms and parking directly outside the rooms (not far to carry the cases!) The rooms had a lovely private terrace right outside the rooms which was lovely to sit with each other after a busy day! The beds were really comfy! The breakfast was superb and served in such a lovely setting! Really friendly place to stay! My partner and I really enjoyed our stay!
Nothing to dislike!
Lovely swimming pool. Very good dinners served outdoors by the pool.
100% Loved the firepit
More fresh fruit
The restuarant and the General ambiance of the place was excellent.
The bed was made up of two singles which put a dampener on Valentine's
This is a family run guest house and the whole family go the extra mile! They will listen and help when they can. The Sunday braai is a must! With karon lamb chops to start nogal! The owners may be of Dutch origin but they do us South Africans proud! Kudos to Daan and his family!!!!!
The family running the guest house are warm and friendly and made us feel very welcome. There was nothing to fault.
There was nothing that we didn't like
Although we only stayed one night we enjoyed every moment. We were just in time to join the wine tasting at Olsen Winery. Thanks Daan and Arrie! Dinner was also very special! A great stay with a very special family.
me ,wifey ,7years and 3 years doughters .it was my famiily first time in South Africa and initialy did not want to leave cape town ( concearn about safety), but after they visit to paarl and stay in the hotel ,they change mind and next time maybe we will start with Paarl in the same hotel than do the cape town. the hotel owners and managment are very frindly and they will go out of ther way to help .it is the place to really relax and detox(from the office ). we did not eat at the hotel (except for beakfast which was nice) but there are alot of choises in paarl for food
we did not have mor time to stay
> friendly helpful staff > interesting, well maintained facilities > the "experience"
> not much though a second choice a dinner would be nice
What a warm, friendly family! Tessa and Daan met us and showed us around. Tessa took it upon herself to book us a table for dinner that night on their beautiful terrace, we appreciated that as we had attended Evita's show in Darling and then, driven to Wellington , Paarl and finally, to the hotel....so, we did NOT want to get in the car again! Dinner was spectacular! And graciously looked after by Stefan, the son! The next morning we were greeted by Yvonne, the mother! We recommend this hotel HIGHLY!
Cannot think of a thing!
Our 2 nights at De Leeuwenhof Estate was a most enjoyable and memorable experience. The peace and tranquility of this family-run estate is complimented by exceptional service provided by the family and staff. The dinners were thoroughly enjoyed around a wood-fire while engaging with international and local guests and the family. Breakfast was scenic around the poolside in the early-morning sun. A visit to the nearby Butterfly World, Lion Park and Nederburg Wine Estate, rounded up a perfect holiday. Thank you Daan, Yvonne, Stephan and Tess for a wonderful holiday.
This gorgeous family run hotel is set perfectly among the vineyards of Paarl in the wine country, just a short drive from Cape Town Airport. Daan, Yvonne, Tessa and Stephan, welcomed us as if we were family upon our arrival. Tessa showed us to our lovely rustic room opening onto the garden courtyard and introduced us to the dogs on the way. Dinner was one of the best we have had in S Africa, a lovely salmon and avo salad with a succulent steak to follow, and breakfast provided the freshest of fruits and usual fair. The morning we left Daan took us on a short tour. I would return again and again to this incredible place, made truly unique by the people who run it. A memorable experience.
very friendly owners and staff!! We love the garden and the kitchen
A great hide. Family run B and B , excellent service and facilities. Amazing evening meals and very accommodating staff where nothing is a problem. Brilliant location just outside Paarl. If your in the area it's a must
A little hard to locate but worth it
Very welcoming and helpful
Bedroom very dark needs modernising.
Very good location, close to Paarl and Stellenbosch. The best food that we've eaten during two weeks in South Africa!
Breakfast - choice of in the sun or in the shadow. The dinner was nice as well. Beautiful garden. Excellent: our dirty car had been washed by the staff (complementary).
No view to the surrounding mountains.
