            Leeu properties are stunning.”

            We spent 2 nights in Leeu House, but also saw the other 4 Leeu businesses in town. All are most interesting and stunningly decorated with some fabulous gardens. Leeu House is close on to the main road but the bedrooms are quirt enough and the hotel in general so restful. Large but cool temperature pool in fab garden. Excellent staff all round this Group of accommodations and eateries. Serrated mountain ranges make the back drop!

            I normally dont write reviews, but Leeu House is that good”

            Everything is done perfectly here to the details. When you arrive they ask about your reservations and check them, when you come back from diner there is a bottle of water with a glass on your nightstand. Breakfast is half buffet half a la carte (anything you could need), my wife is gluten intollerant and instead of the typical supermarket alternative they have a delicious home made all gluten free grain bread. The garden and its surroundings are beautiful and very well kept and everything is designed with a hood calming serene taste. Really everything is high quality and done to perfection, we will definitely come back one day.

            Staff and level of service were excellent. Great location. Some road noise noticeable in the room. Breakfast room was tight on size on some days with additional tables set up in the lounge.

            Tranquil stay, right in town. Didn't try dinner as it was rather too quiet . Plenty of opportunities to eat at other Leuu establishments with better vibe. The pool area was exceptional for a town property and a great place to unwind. Staff were all helpful and friendly.

            A relaxing 2 night stay”

            Leeu House was a wonderful experience for me travelling alone and needing some time out. Beautiful grounds to rest in, within walking distance to many great restaurants and shops, and safe. The breakfasts were delicious, and the staff incredibly attentive.
