Lekkerwijn is the perfect place to stay whilst exploring the winelands. Peter was very helpfull in making recomendations and being a perfect host. He even bought us some local wine, as we were on our honeymoon. I highly reccomend the garden room!

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.
