Leeu House, a 5-star, 12-bedroom boutique hotel located in the heart of Franschhoek, South Africa, will open its doors on 1 December 2015.
Styled as a country guesthouse, yet situated on the main road in vibrant Franschhoek, Leeu House has just 12 individually styled rooms and suites. All rooms come equipped with premium technology, such as a media hub with high-speed Wi-Fi access, Nespresso coffee machines and under-floor heating in bathrooms. In addition, Leeu House offers a host of complimentary items and services (including all local spirits, award-winning house wines and soft drinks, a laundry and pressing service, and a tasting of Mullineux & Leeu family wines per guest per stay).
Guests at Leeu House can enjoy cuisine prepared by a culinary team headed by Executive Chef Oliver Cattermole. Meals and South African vintages from the cellar are served inside The Conservatory or alfresco on The Terrace.
The complimentary use of bicycles will be available to all guests to enable them to explore Franschhoek and the surrounds. Guests will also have access to the spa facilities and grounds of Leeu Estates, via a complimentary shuttle service, once it opens in the second quarter of 2016.
Leeu House is the second property in the Leeu Collection portfolio, the first being Le Quartier Francais, also in Franschhoek, which the group acquired on 1 September 2015.
