Disliked: Staff & service
Beautiful property with inadequate service
While the property was beautiful, the service at the Leeu Estates did not match the hefty price tag—particularly in an area with fierce competition. From a lack of help regarding wineries in the area to pick for touring to an unexplained knock on the door by two service staff to ask if anything was needed at 9:00am in the morning despite a "do not disturb" sign hanging outside, there was much to discuss with the manager—who, to his credit, did handle the situation well and professionally. We only had two nights in the area and wish we had picked a different property, for our time and experience as well as for our wallet.
