We would go here again and again.
Wonderful place to stay a little ways from town. Lovely 200 year old mansion turned into a guest house. Wonderful grounds and farm animals.

Lekkerwijm Historic country house hotel
The house is beautiful full of antiques ,with many animals in the gardens, including a resident dog, a pet rabbit and tortoises in the inner garden, and pigs,goats and peacocks with their young,in the outer grounds, The breakfast was very good, We would really recomend it.

Past it’s Sell By date
This lovely house must once have been state of the art...but that was 3 centuries ago. The people working there now are charming and helpful, but it is beyond their abilities to make a silk purse out of a sows ear. The rooms are tired, furnished with the austerity furnishings of the forties and fifties, and with equally ancient dust and dirt . There was only one TV for guests to watch - when catching up on U.K. news, one hoped no one else would come in and change the channel. The place was lacking in energy and life...and was 18kms from Franschhoek, which was much further out than we had expected. Poor value for money.

Fantastic find!
Convenient location a short 10 minute drive into the center Franschhoek and close to many vineyards. Lovely historic house full of beautiful antique furniture. The bed was luxurious and comfortable. The main house has a gorgeous internal courtyard and we enjoyed sitting outside and relaxing. The managers Peter and Robin were excellent and ensured we had everything we needed. Breakfast in the morning was delicious with lots of variety. It was quiet and the grounds were stunning with resident peacocks strolling about. I felt like royalty staying here and look forward to coming back.
