There are many conference and function rooms for all your needs. The food was amazing and the staff were super friendly and efficient. The only issue was that the wifi was a... More

We spent a family weekend away at this little country hotel. The rooms were clean and well appointed. The hotel has superb large grounds and allows its guests to enjoy the feeling of space within its grounds. The food in the restaurant wasn't satisfactory, for the price, we expected better. The service too from the staff in general was lacking... More

We hadn't been to Houw Hoek for many years so decided go their again as we like the country. We were very pleasantly surprised as it appears to have been upgraded and really now looks first class. The rooms are lovely and spacious and don't lack anything. The gardens and amenities outside are really nice and our grandchildren loved the... More

I was looking forward to cosy winter evenings at the fire and great bedding to fall asleep in. Not to be. The wood supplied burned for a while but died out halfway through each log. Hubbie did his level best, slaving away to keep it going. Got more blitz from reception, but no luck in keeping it alive. the next... More

This was my fourth time at Houw Hoek Inn. Apparently it is one of the oldest inns is South Africa. I really enjoy the quietness of this place. It’s up in the mountains. When you wake up in the morning the scenery is beautiful. In short ot’s a decent place with a good restaurant. Houw Hoek Inn is something that... More

The old lounges have been kept original and modern facilities added as well as many activities for all ages. Rooms have a useable fireplace which is set every day with wood and firelighters and plenty of... More

We enjoyed our stay at Houw Hoek Inn, the room was comfortable and clean and the dinner dance was fun. It was very cold and wet so we weren't able to enjoy the beautiful gardens or outdoor facilities. A few things which could have been done better - the wood in the room for the fireplace was wet and the... More
