“An average hotel with huge potential”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

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. Breakfast wasn't that great but also just fine.

Thanks for the feedback. I fully appreciate where you are coming from. In the last couple of months we have made big strides wrt staffing changes and an overall experience adjustment. We are now on a very exciting road into the future and maybe one day when you return to this beautiful village and area of Cape Town you will see the effort we have put in. By the way, spend a few more days next time, it takes more than one night to adjust to Noordhoek Village life! Cheers, Dougie.

What a fabulous spot for a weekend away - Close to Cape Town, and So much to do and see but you still get the feeling you are "away from it all". Efficient, Friendly service, delicious sushi, excellent breakfasts and very comfortable rooms made for a wonderful weekend!

Brilliant location tucked away from the hustle of Cape Town with easy access to everything you would need. Service was incredible and all the staff have such a can do attitude that nothing was ever too much to ask. Free wifi was a definite plus for those of us travelling from overseas and needing to check in with things across the globe. Beautiful, spacious rooms and clean bathroom.

This is a retreat of note, close to the magnificent Noordhoek beach located in the 'village' and flanked by restaurant & cozy pub. A venue for all seasons!! The staff were very courteous & professional and one of the owners, Dougie Boyes makes a concerted effort to ensure patrons enjoy the weekly quiz evenings for those seeking more intellectual stimulus than the scenic beauty offers.

Hey Eddie, don't tell too many people that! You know about expectations... Lovely to catch up and share a beer at The Toad. It is awesome to have this offering all in one place, and then too be able to crash in the hotel after you've had your fun is an added bonus. Us Noordhoekers are very privileged too have so many owner run businesses in their midst. Get those JoBurgers out the city my man. The Foodbarn, Cafe Roux, The Toad, De Noordhoek - business will come to a standstill...

Had a great weekend at De Noordhoek with family and friends for my wife's 40th birthday! Staff were great and seriously accommodating. The rooms are spacious, clean and have everything you need (including free wi-fi for those wanting to work). Loved the fact that there is a 'Sushi Bar' in-house. The 'Village' area is awesome with different coffee shops, restaurants and pubs all just across the parking lot. Overall position is great, with Noordhoek beach just around the corner, Chapmans Peak not far (a couple of people went for a run along 'Chappies'), wine tasting just up the road and plenty of other things to do. Definitely value for money!

What a great weekend it was, pleasure to have so many good people in our hotel and around the Noordhoek Village. Very special place this. Interesting comment from a very well traveled hotel designer and hotelier the other day. He says that this is the new 5 star. Put that in you pipe and smoke it big spenders!!! Cheers Ryan, spread the word, quietly... We do it again at 50!

We loved staying at de noordhoek. Spent two nights there before flying back to UK. It is in a beautiful location and conveniently close to some excellent restaurants.
The hotel is clean and spacious, yet still has a homely and warm feel.
The food is fantastic with a large breakfast selection. There sushi is top rate too!
Service was second to none. Staff were efficient, available and friendly.
Highly recommended.

Thanks Sam for your kind words. I have printed your words off and shown the team. They are so appreciative, you have made them very proud! What we have achieved in such a short space of time is remarkable. Your appreciation of this and what we have on our door step is a breath of fresh air in a world that loves to over complicate and analyse life! Thanks and we look forward to your return trip. Cheers from all of us at De Noordhoek Lifestyle Hotel and The Noordhoek Farm Village.

De Noordhoek Hotel is an absolute gem to stay at. The staff goes out their way to accommodate all your needs and the breakfasts are really scrumptious. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and with Wi-Fi available throughout the hotel perfect for any business person to stay over.

As the hotel is situated in De Noordhoek Village you have a great pub, The Toad, where you can enjoy a couple of cold crispy drafts and tasty meals.

Not to missed is sushi at Village Sushi Restaurant which is situated within the hotel, lunch at Café Roux and enjoy an array of tapas at the Foodbarn Deli & Tapas restaurant

Room Tip: Choose the courtyard rooms. No stairs, very quiet and peaceful

Hi Andre. What a pleasure it was to host you and the Ramsay Media Group. So glad you guys managed to spend three days in The Noordhoek Farm Village at our lovely establishment as it is only once you have time to explore that you really get the the feeling of this great Noordhoek Lifestyle. Convenience and hospitality is what the village and De Noordhoek is about. Spread the word and we look forward to seeing you again soon. Cheers Dougie.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
De Noordhoek Lifestyle Hotel is a 4 star 20 bedroomed Boutique Hotel set in the beautiful, vibrant Noordhoek Farm Village in Cape Town, South Africa. At the base of Chapman’s Peak with Table Mountain National Park to the one side and the beautiful Noordhoek Beach to the other, Noordhoek is certainly one of Cape Town's best kept secrets. A must visit destination for any well-travelled visitor to Cape Town. Our piece of paradise is home to some amazing places. It is these attractions that make Noordhoek a world class destination for life or holiday. It is made even more so by the folk who have established businesses here and the passion that they have shown for and put into these businesses. We simply love what everyone does in Noordhoek and only feel it correct that we share our “Best of Noordhoek” with you when you spend time with us. After all we think we are quite good at spotting something special and unique that’s why we built this fantastic hotel. Our rooms are en-suite and come fitted out with fine quality linen and beds. Our common areas include a lounge, breakfast and restaurant area, sushi patio, pool and sunning area and a meeting room for corporate visitors. The hotel is fully wireless and is complimentary to all hotel guests. We do also have a quiet computer corner if you haven’t brought your own! Don't be fooled by Cape Town's busy city life, Noordhoek is 20 minutes from the city centre and 20 minutes from Cape Point. A great place to explore Cape Town from and you must explore Cape Town. Come and be our guests, you will want to move to Noordhoek! ... more   less
