Beautiful accomodation in a stunning homestead. Peter the manager was very informative and welcoming. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Accomodation was very comfortable and well appointed. Everything that one would need was supplied. Animals were a treat, horses, potbellied pigs, goats and a very friendly welcoming dog. Will definitely return.
We spent two nights at the self catering b&b unit. Postives: good location between stellenbosch, paarl and franschoek, friendly staff, lovely farm with lots of space and animals to keep the kids busy.Negatives: in general the accommodation was not up to the price tag: some examples: the unit had lots of flies, the water pressure in the bathroom was weak, the room was dusty and the furnishings old. The general feel is of a quickly put together and not well maintained unit.
We had a very enjoyable 4 night stay at Lekkerwijn. We stayed in the Camelia suite the bedroom of the original owners which was very comfortable. The staff were very good and helpful as was Pieter the Manager and Simon the owner. Simon also gave us an Historic tour of the House. We will certainly recommend it.
Simon, the owner of Lekkerwijn went out of his way to ensure that our stay was informative, comfortable and happy. He is a most gracious host. The house and history are fascinating. Furniture, art work, and architecture all very interesting. The rooms are spacious, the beds are very comfortable with beautiful linen and a surprise hot water bottle popped in before bedtime! Very accommodating to kids and excellent, well priced babysitting available. Like entering a bygone era where life flows gracefully, personalized attention and attention to detail, tea trays by the fireplace are the norm not... see more
We loved our stay at Lekkerwijn; the actual accommodation is so beautiful, with all the stunning furniture. Our room was beautiful, and we had all the amenities we required. And Simon made us feel so welcome - we will definitely be back!
