Verified reviewvery good

Overall, it was a very good experience at Lekkerwijn. The house is truly a museum of 18th and 19th century furniture, craftsmanship and Dutch cape style period architecture. My room was huge with a king bed, sitting area and bathroom. The staff were very supportive and friendly. The owner was very knowledgeable of Franschoek and the valley providing good tour options ad restaurants. Breakfast was good and fresh with eggs/omelettes to accompany the muffins, toast and coffee/tea. I thought the room and house was alittle cold during the evening and the wall heater in the room was not sufficient to warm it up. There was a fireplace in living room but it was not lite. The other issue I had was that I arrived late (after 7pm) and there was no one available to greet me. The doors will all locked, not much exterior light and no visible security person. I finally did reach the owner who let me in and apologized for not having there when I arrived. I just think that part of the process could be improved. I would recommend it to others recognizing the beauty of the area and value for money it represents.
