Location

Experience the very best of town and country at this homely, 12-bedroom hotel in the heart of Franschhoek. Located just five minutes’ drive from the stunning grounds and world-class facilities of its sister property, Leeu Estates, it's also little more than an hour and a half from Cape Town's big city bustle. Franschhoek itself, surrounded by the sprawling vineyards of South Africa’s premier wine region, brings together boutiques, galleries and first-class restaurants that revel in the town’s French heritage and celebrated gastronomic credentials.

Accommodation

Individually styled rooms comprise comfortable beds and the highest quality linen, sisal carpets and elegant upholstered furnishings. Step inside the bathrooms to find marble floors, double vanities, heated towel rails and under-tile heating. Look to the Classic and Deluxe rooms with private terraces for mountain views and direct access to the hotel pool. All rooms have high speed internet, high-definition TV, a Nespresso machine and complimentary mini bar.

Dining

With the restaurants of Leeu House and Leeu Estates open to guests from both properties, there’s no shortage of choice when it comes to dining. At Leeu House, the Conservatory offers innovative cuisine in an al fresco or terrace setting with menus by celebrated head chef, Oliver Cattermole. Meanwhile, over at Leeu Estates, the outstanding Dining Room pairs a commanding manor house location with modern South African flavours and matching vintages from its own cellar. In the village, and part of the Leeu Collection, Le Quartier Francais offers two further excellent options – The Tasting Room and The Garden Room – along with a stylish bar, @LQF.

Facilities

Beautifully landscaped gardens lead out to a heated swimming pool and relaxation space. Bikes are free for guests to use and are a great way to explore the town and outlying wineries. Across at Leeu Estate, a spa and gym provide additional recreation while the neighbouring Tuk Tuk microbrewery serves craft beers and light snacks in a wonderfully laid-back atmosphere.
