The room advertised on the website was an upstairs room with beautiful views. The room we got was downstairs overlooking the courtyard. At breakfast I had to go into the kitchen to find someone to serve us. As we were the only people in the restaurant, I was surprised that they still got my order wrong. The hotel was not... More

We enjoyed it so much that we have booked our next stay in 3 weeks time again. The staff were friendly, helpful and so polite! The hotel is in the best location on your way to Chapman's Peak and the village atmosphere creates an awesome vibe! Breakfast was delicious with a nice variety to choose from. If you intend to...

We stayed here as we were attending a wedding at Cape Point Vineyards the same night. The service was good and the room was comfortable. The shower was awful though, it took forever to get warm and the shower head was clogged up so what water did come out was very painful. Simple fix would be replacing the shower head.... More

We live in Hout Bay just over Chapmans Peak Drive from Noordhoek, but decided to treat ourselves to a night at this hotel rather than drive home after a 50th Birthday party. At R1500 for a night we were expecting an upmarket boutique hotel ... the website certainly created this impression. What we found was in our opinion very downmarket... More

Hi Paul It's taken me a while to respond to your review quite simply because it's hard to appreciate your point of view. I am also a Capetonian and I love Cape Town. I also understand Cape Town and therefore I get why you have posted such a unbelievably critical report about one of your own. The rest of the... More

We have stayed at de Noorrdhoek twice over a year ago, and have been meaning to return ever since..... We were there in winter, the staff made up a fabulous fire in the sitting area adjacent to reception where we were served drinks and relaxed reading some of the coffee table books provided. Our room was comfortable with some nice... More

We were excited to spend the night here as the appearance of the hotel always made us think it would be luxurious. We therefore we're not concerned about paying the R1500 they asked for the night. It was however, not what we expected. Dirty carpets greeted us in an otherwise nice-sized room. The breakfast (served from the sushi restaurant kitchen)... More

We had a couple of nights here when on a small group bird-watching trip. Our room was comfortable and fully adequate. We enjoyed good evening meals in the adjacent pub. Breakfast was sufficient but not spectacular. The staff are friendly and keen to assist.

We spent just one night here and felt a bit disappointed. The hotel is in such a lovely setting in the wonderful Noordhoek village which has so much character and charm, which just doesn't really carry through to the hotel. Rooms are fine, staff are fine and that's just it - its just fine and not really all that exciting.... More
