We stayed here three years ago and loved the place, so back we went. When we arrived there was a friendly face who welcomed us back and took us to our old room that looked like we left it yesterday. Happy, you bet, what is better than going back to your favorite little inn and finding out that nothing has... More

Staying at the Hawksmoor House is like being on a Hollywood set! Beauty abounds with the fabulous antiques that decorate the mainhouse as well as the guestrooms. Great ambiance and wonderful service.

What a beautiful establishment! The house has been immaculately maintained and makes one feel like time has stood still. Hawksmoor is a perfect venue for just chilling or close enough to explore surrounding areas like Stellenbosch, Paarl or Cape Town. We chose the chill option, loved the evening port next to the roaring fire, tea in the afternoon and the... More

My husband and I booked a night away, and had the most wonderful stay at Hawksmoor House. The staff are friendly and efficient. The room was stylishly designed, warm and inviting. The small touches like a fully stocked honest bar, beautiful antique furniture and a roaring fireplace all made our stay fantastic! The hearty farm style breakfast was excellent. We... More

What wonderful property. The owners have really kept the main house in its own grand style, furnished with wonderful antiques. The bedrooms were sensational with everything in it that one needs. On top, immaculately maintaine and furnished with style. We had a really good time. The staff are wonderful. You can have your laundry done in a day by them,... More

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of spending a wintery night at Hawksmoor and from the time we arrived it was evident that this is a very special place. We were greeted warmly and offered tea and delicious Orange cake at the large dining table. The Manor house is beautifully restored and filled with antiques, but doesn't feel... More

On Sunday we ventured to Hawksmoor House to sample their recently advertised soup and cheese lunch. The venue is lovely (made even more special by the stunning winter weather on the day). On arrival we enjoyed a lovely port followed by casual banter and a stroll around the grounds. The manor house main table was beautifully decorated and the cheese... More

This was one of the best places of living during my 3 weeks in Botswana and South Africa. Maison which was built 300 years still gives you a feeling of that era.
