Had an awesome stay at De Leeuwenhof. Great farm atmosphere…tranquil and picture beautiful as you can only get on a Boland farm. People super helpful and friendly. Facilities excellent … and conversation in the breakfast hall absolutely great…Thank you very much for a great stay. Definitely recommended for business, family and holiday/vacation stay overs in the Cape.

We spent a single night here washing the dust off from a trip into the Tanqua karroo. It had just reverted to low season operations so the restaurant was only open for breakfast (sumptuous). We booked on the fly and there really was nothing else available. We were met and shown our room by very friendly and helpful people.We stayed...

After a long week in the Tankwa Karoo Desert we stayed at this B&B to get rid of the dust, to relax and visit the wine area. Our stay was all that and more.

Situated in the Nedeburg value, this wonderful family hotel provides a great option and value for money. The rooms are fully equipped , simple and spotlessly clean , offer a great overnight resting spot, We also enjoyed breakfast offering local and fresh produce from the farm. A personal touch from the owners makes the real difference.

Our stay at De Leeuwenhof was one of the most enjoyable we have experienced. From the owners and staff, who treated us like family, to the beauty of the Klein Drakenstein mountains on one side and Paarl on the other, to the excellent shops and restaurants of nearby Paarl, our visit could not have been better.

I really enjoyed the stay in Paarl. De Leeuwenhof is a well maintained country location close to the highway run by a nice family. The accomodations were very good and the breakfast hit the spot each morning. We learned a lot from talking with the owners about the area and day to day life. It was very interesting and made...
