One of our best friends 50th birthday celebration. Sunday lunch buffet at Houw Hoek Inn was excellent. We were 24 in the party and it was a mild winter afternoon. Table decorations were done by us so this is not part of the restaurant offering. The buffet food was great - delicious mild and very tender mutton curry. Variety of... More

Nestled at the bottom of the valley just off the N2 and clearly visible as you pass by, this old coaching inn is full of atmosphere - take the time to walk the corridors and read the information dotted around. We sat on the terrace overlooking the beautiful gardens and grounds and had a quick bite to eat on a... More

What a wonderful stay we had! It was our anniversary so it was a very good way to celebrate. From the arrival, to the departure, we were fully satisfied. Spending time one-on-one with my hubby in such a beautiful place with wonderful food. We will definitely be coming back!

Excellent value for money, very comfortable rooms with fireplaces and aircon. Beautiful area and a very short drive from Cape Town. Staff were friendly, food was good and there was plenty to do in and around the inn.

On Our Honeymoon we did not have time to walk around- we did that on ou 30 st anniversary. Houwhoek Inn is a beautiful place with lovely grounds and a bush path to walk on. The food at dinner were super, the breakfast really nice and the room with a bath and shower so comfortable. Highly recommended

We were not totally sure about taking an extra day and night on our road trip, but the deal at Houw Hoek was so good that we did, and what an excellent decision that turned out to be. Our gruelling day of driving was made worth it by the absolutely luxurious room that awaited us at Houw Hoek. Rooms are... More

My husband and I and our two adult children and their partners stayed at Houw Hoek from 15th-19th June. I had booked 3 double rooms. The rooms were very spacious, clean and we all had our own private patio overlooking the mountain, swimming pool and pond. The bonus was a fireplace in each room as is was winter which the... More

The service was great, from check in and including my entire stay. The food was great. The signage from the N2 was also great making it easy to access the site. The set up makes sense for weddings and could be a place to consider

Everything worked, service was good, we had a good time. Only the fridge didn't work, which didn't matter cos it's winter. Fireplaces are great. The hotel is like stepping back into history. Beautiful place.
