This past weekend my fiance and I spent one magical night at Hawksmoor House - what a treat! The room we stayed in was a good size and comfortably furnished and, a huge plus for a wintry Cape Town night, there was an ENORMOUS fireplace in the bedroom! As the storms raged outside, we were snug in our gorgeously appointed... More

We booked ourselves in for a 1 night getaway to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. We couldn't have chosen a better place. The manor house is so incredible, you feel like you've been transported to another era. Every detail has gone into preserving the original homestead which is 300 years old. Petru and Mannes are the most hospitable hosts and... More

Stayed here for a wedding with our two young children. The main house is beautiful, rustic chic and charming. Breakfast was very good - range of cereals, fruit, toast and cooked breakfast. Our room was in the dairy opposite the main house and it was nice and quiet, with lovely furniture and a luxury bathroom. The bridal suite was beautiful,... More

I can't believe I stayed in the same place as other recent reviewers! From our arrival where we were left to lug our own cases into our room, the full ashtray we found on our stoop, grubby bedding, coffee stains on the walls to the filthy table breakfast on which place settings were laid this was the real disappointment during...

My sister, fiance, and I had an absolute dream of a stay at the Hawksmoor over Valentine's day weekend. After seeing discrete recommendations for this B&B in the New York Times, we decided to book for a one night stay during a trip to wine country (a quick 10 minute drive south) As this was all of our first time's...

My wife loved the place and complained that we stayed only 3 nights. Except the view on fences we had from our room, everything was indeed quite perfect. A quiet place, close from everything (highway, Stellenbosch & Franschoek, but even Cape Town), with a great staff always there for you. We only had our breakfasts at Hawksmoor, great food, fresh...

When our group arrived at Hawksmoor House we mostly didn't know what to expect but as soon as I laid eyes on the dirt track leading to the house I knew I was in for a nice, comfortable, farmhouse holiday. Booked in that far out of Cape Town because the city was full due to conventions and events, we thought... More

We stayed for three nights at Hawksmoor House at the end of October. The first thing to say is that the location is a-may-zing. From our bed we had a view out over miles of vineyards, and the sunset over Table Mountain from the pool area was worth the money by itself. The rooms are also very nicely done and... More

We had a short stay here for a conference recently. I work in travel and my family also run a guest house, so my standards are high and I am often disappointed. Not at Hawksmoor House!
