My fiancé and I stayed at the gorgeous Hawksmoor House for 3 nights in January. Could not have asked for more. The grounds, staff, food, wine, doggies! It was truly a magical long weekend and wish we could just drive back anytime but.. we will have to fly back!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We stayed for 5 nights which was enough time for us to unwind from a busy life style. We spent our days, reading, swimming, resting, enjoying breakfast and afternoon tea. We loved sitting on our private patio with some drinks and snacks as the sun went down, admiring the beautiful view and the peaceful noises... More

My husband and I spent one night here in the White room, celebrating our 11th year anniversary. The staff were friendly and very welcoming. While we were out for dinner we returned to the room with petals on the bed and a lovely bottle of wine. The view at night is spectacular from the room. I was initially concerned about... More

We had our wedding here in January 2016, the venue was absolutely stunning, everything I could have dreamed for. Kirsten was a great help with the planning (which was needed seeing we are from Perth Australia). The rooms were beautiful and my family and friends were very impressed. Breakfast together before and after the wedding over looking some stunning views... More

We were in Hawksmoor House to get married. Kirsten from lion roars had arranged everything perfectly, bridal bouquet, make-up, hair, menue, everything was in her hands and she did it wonderfully. The location is perfect for a wedding, beautifull old house, wonderful old oaks to stand undernaeth and do the vows. We will never forget this special day there.

Hawksmoor house has amazing views over the winery region and the rooms have a lot of character. But it has lots of room to improve. We were attending for a large group for an event. Some rooms were not ready for 2.5 hours after the scheduled check in time. In our room the bins hadn't been emptied. The main issue... More

The historic farm has a quaint manor house and lots of antiques which create a beautiful setting. Many of the rooms though are in other houses arund the manor house and all are not quite as pretty as the manor house. Our impression of the place may be affected by the heat wave in the area during our stay and... More

Hawksmoore House was the most beautiful place of all our trip through South Africa. Both house and the whole scenery were just breathtaking. To sit on the porch of this centuries old manor, watching the sunset over table mountain while having dinner and enjoying a nice glass of wine... priceless. Our Hosts Kirsten and Rudi and all their team were... More

his is a great place - we were in the Slave House (it was a luxury slave house:)... nice view to the Tafelberg. Close to highway, so convenient to go anywhere. Nice owner. One of the oldest houses in South Africa
