Just back from the Cheese Festival and stayed at Hoopenburg, very friendly,hospitable and welcoming, nothing was a trouble. Room was very clean and comfortable and breakfast was great. Excellent value for money. Will definitely return. Many thanks Charlene and your lovely staff.

I was fortunate to find Hoopenburg Guesthouse in 2008 as a stayover venue when I visited Cape Town for business. Two longer visits later convinced me that this is not only an excellent business acommodation venue, it is also a great place to bring my family for a holiday in the Western Cape. In 2009 (7 days) and again in 2011 (10 days) we made Hoopenburg our base from which we explored the Western Cape.

Apart from the way-too-much-to-eat farm breakfasts, the exquisite furnishings and the stylish bedrooms, being city-dwellers, we could not get enough of the wide open spaces in the gardens and the vineyards. My wife and I read more books in the many shady nooks than we did in years, while my 3 children, two of which are usually-unimpressable teenagers(!), spent their days in the pool and on bicycles exploring the wine estate.

But the service is without a doubt the one item that stands out. Phrases like helpful, supporting, curteous and attentive do not even begin to describe Charlene and her staff's wonderful way of treating their guests. Important to note here that the guesthouse was full at the time, and that the other guests received the same high standard of service. Charlene personally took care of restaurant bookings, drive-out schedules and even securing an emergency appointment at a dentist for us.

In our experience one will go far to find a place that offers a better blend of all worlds: a real wine farm experience, with all the luxuries of an upmarket downtown establishment, away from the city noise, yet close enough to shops, restaurants and business needs.

We are currently planning an extended family reunion for December 2012 in Cape Town, and we plan to book out he whole guesthouse for at least a week!

Room Tip: We had rooms 1 and 2, both with private entrances, to cater for our needs as a family with kids. Apa...

We just returned from one night at Hoopenburg - had planned to stay 2 nights. We were miserable from the mosquitos, lack of air circulation and dogs barking much of the night!. There were other bugs in our room as well - large crickets, for example. The pool was dirty. No one was there when we arrived to open the gate. Breakfast was okay, but I wouldn't recommend this place.

Stayed for 4 nights Oct 2011 as next door the Eaglevei (you can walk there for fab lunch thru the vineyard but check haven't got wedding on first!) where we had a family wedding but you need no excuse to choose Charlene's home from home as a base. Close to STellenbosch & Cape Town, wonderful breakfast, stunning gardens and excellent value for money. I will stay again next time I visit the family just to chill and re-charge. Thank you Charlene for making me so welcome.

Room Tip: Rooms in the main house luxurious but if you want your own front door so you can "pretend"...

We stayed at Hoopenburg Guesthouse in November 2009 for a few days and fell in love with this tranquil place immediately. The setting is in the centre of a vineyard, fields of grapevines for miles around, but close to restaurants and small towns, Stellenbosch being approx 30 mins away. There are large shopping malls a similar distance away. Approximately one hour from Cape Town, Hoopenburg offers beautifully presented rooms with modern en suite facilities, a large lounge and dining room where we enjoyed tasty breakfasts.

Nothing was too much trouble for our host, who made us feel very much at home and welcome. We arrived as guests and left as friends.

The guesthouse has a large, beautifully kept garden at the front, with a pond where a variety of ducks swam most of the day, whilst the rear of the property housed a swimming pool with sunloungers, complete with towels for the use of guests.

We sat by the pool amused many times as we watched one of the two dogs, a Welsh Sheepdog named Skye, as he rounded up the chickens, mistaking them for sheep!

We found the cost of our stay to be amazing value for what was on offer.

If you are looking for somewhere to stay in this region, then why waste time looking elsewhere.....you won't find better...Trust me..... K & P Liverpool, England
