Luxury in the heart of the Winelands

Leeu House, part of the Leeu Collection, is a stylish boutique hotel close to the quaint town of Franschhoek and just an hour and thirty minutes drive from buzzy Cape Town

The exclusive 12 bedroom hotel is surrounded by lush vineyards, rolling fields and mountainous peaks – we recommend borrowing a bike to explore your surroundings at your leisure. 

The Franschhoek Valley, with its Cape Dutch heritage and strong French influences, is renowned as one of the world’s finest food and wine destinations and dining is a real highlight here. The hotel's world-class chefs have created a unique menu and all meals are accompanied by a curation of fine South African wines including the estate's vintages. Visit Le Quartier Francais, a sister property of Leeu House, and eat at the renowned Tasting Room restaurant for more fine dining. Or, if you're looking for a more relaxed style, try the tapas dishes at the nearby Tuk Tuk craft brewery. 

Stay at Leeu House and you'll be just a short stroll from delightful shops, cafes, art galleries and restaurants.

  • Cool off in the heated swimming pool in the gardens
  • Savour the fine dining experiences on offer
  • Located in the heart of charming Franschhoek
  • Complimentary bikes available to use during your stay

Beautiful boutique hotel

London

The hotel is perfectly situated on the main street and incredibly quiet. We were there for our honeymoon and were left a nice note and some chocolates when we arrived. The room: We had a great view of the mountains, which meant opening up the curtains in the morning was pretty spectacular. It was spacious and clean with a really nice bathroom. They need to get iron's in the room (I'll explain below). The surroundings: Leeu House is really small and intimate, with a lovely pool area and a gorgeous conservatory where they service breakfast. I can imagine it's even more beautiful in the Summer when you can eat outside. The lounge area is nice, with a fire place and comfy seating plus an honesty bar. The gym and spa are located a drive away at the Leeu Estate but you do have a transfer service to get you there and back. Service: The first person on reception when we arrived was exceptional - really welcoming, friendly and helpful. After that everyone was nice but he really really stood out. They have a free pressing service, which we used as they weren't able to provide an iron, however housekeeping managed to iron a hole in one of my new shirts. Annoying but not the end of the world...however the way they dealt with it was really disappointing. Instead of just apologising and either taking the cost of the laundry we'd had done off the bill (they actually made us pay for it!!) or giving us a glass of wine or something in compensation the woman who came to tell us said that the person in housekeeping who had made the mistake had offered to pay for the shirt!! Obviously I'm not going to make an individual working in housekeeping pay for something...I thought that was a really uncomfortable way to deal with the situation, putting the blame on an individual rather than accepting responsibility as the hotel. The team were really great advising us on places to eat. We ended up going to Reubens, La Petit Colombe and Le Coin Francais - all of which were great and within walking distance of the hotel. Wine tasting: The Leeu Estates wine tasting is well worth it - the tasting room is beautiful and in an amazing setting and the wine was decent too. Spa: You MUST go to the spa. It's incredible and in the most beautiful setting (again a short drive away but you have the transfer service to the Leeu Estate). If we'd had more time we would definitely have gone back. Sitting out by the pool briefly was so relaxing and the view is to die for. The massages were really great and the rooms you have them in are beautiful.

Lovely Boutique Hotel very well situated in town.

San Diego, California

This is a small boutique hotel located at the end of the main street in Frranschoek. One can walk right out the front door and easily walk the main street to a restaurant or any of the other attractions of the town. The service is excellent and in just a few short days (we had 3) you will know the staff and they will know you. Breakfasts are pleasant and available either on the outdoor patio or just inside. Our room was quite comfortable and quiet. I highly recommend this hotel.
