Leeu House

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.

Unbelievable and highly recommended!!

Chicago, IL

We have traveled all over the world and the Leeu House will forever be with us! The staff was extraordinary and the property is a small slice of heaven! This is the kind of place you got out of your way to stay! Wish I wasn’t half way around the world to stay there again sooner!

Wonderful and attentive staff

Nottingham, United Kingdom

My dad and I stayed here for two nights and we were very impressed with how welcoming and helpful each member of staff was. We arrived much earlier than our check-in time but they made sure our room was made up while we were checking in and we were in our room within ten minutes, our cases having already been taken up! The rooms are lovely and the beds comfortable, it was quite cold when we went and although there was a heater it took a while to heat the room up and was quite loud so we had to turn it off when we went to sleep. However, this shouldn’t be a problem in the warmer months and the heated floor in the bathroom was a big plus! Breakfast was good with quite a few options for the hot breakfast. The spa at Leeu estates was amazing, it was a shame it was so cold as the pool looked lovely but I had a great massage there. The view from here was also fantastic and the staff are great at transporting you between the hotel and the spa. I would absolutely recommend this hotel and if I ever return to Franschhoek I will be definitely be staying here again!
