Great time away from city. Loved the smells of freshness and trees. The old age of the place is fantastic. I love the history and the fact that 200 years ago people were in the same place we are staying in.
We stayed for 2 nights for a mountain bike event. The accommodation was exceptional and spotlessly clean. The setting and scenery is amazing. The food was also very good. Service sometimes slow but this did not affect our stay at all. Would definitely stay again. More...
Beautiful setting. Lovely old hotel. Great service. Excellent menu. A must stop on the way back from Plettenberg Bay. Very historical with gardens and the mountains that surround the grounds. Have stayed there and it was stunning. Lovely pools. More...
Beautiful little gem of an hotel. The fireplace in the room is one of the great features. With friendly staff and great service,it definitely deserves the 5 star rating.

That being said - I've been coming to HHI since I was a young kid and have the most amazing memories at this place. Its beautiful with lovely staff and amazing food. I will definitely continue to visit. Maybe just be aware of what times the kitchen closes and when lunch is officially over. More...

Good place for family functions. Very nice atmosphere. Farm like atmosphere and great to be there.
Stayed 2 nights, 1st awful the 2nd perfect. Unfortunately there was a political party staying at the hotel on Friday night which appeared to have no concern for any other patrons of the hotel. Singing and shouting through the night. Hotel staff apologised and offered some food in compensation. Daughter loved the grounds and location. More...
Stunning piece of history and relaxed atmosphere.
Lovely wine and dine with a view to kill!
Boxes above its 3* weight class. Lots for kids to do.
This hotel is clean, neat and well maintained. Our room was perfect and beautifully clean. The expansive gardens around the hotel are well maintained and pretty. It's a long time since I've come across such lovely hotel staff - they were friendly and attentive. I highly recommend this hotel. More...

What an amazing experience, wow! I didn't have any expectations, but the place is beautiful and the service is amazing. Definitely a beautiful wedding venue..
Ok so we were booked in room 37, the room was spacious with 5 beds which was odd as the queen bed was as you walked in the entrance, with a single bed next to it. Then 3 single beds in the room.

Then 3 single beds in the room. Water was hot instantly. Problem is the room smelt like smoked.We then moved to a much smaller room 19 which was a definite no no for us at least. We then asked to move again. After breakfast we handed in the keys and headed off to Caledon, when we got back room 40 was ready for us, my oh my what a win, it has 2 rooms, a lounge and ample space with a fire place and a patio.Thank you to the Houw Hoek team, especially the lady that had to work a triple shift for accommodating us.

I absolutely loved the location, scenery and the cleanliness and friendliness of the environment.I had room 46, it was pretty. The curtains were actually very iffy. I did struggle with closing them and even then they weren't closed properly. They're not ideally hung.The beds and sheets were lovely, cozy and warm. The pillow was horrid however. I did not sleep well on this hard pillow, the other attendees also agreed that the pillows sucked.Otherwise, WiFi was a great plus, shower was nice and clean. Amenities were lovely, food and drinks are very pricey though. A can of coke costed me R22.Definitely worth a stay over! More...
Houw Hoek is that peaceful getaway we all need every so often.Great service, comfortable accommodation and great food, makes this everything you need to relax, and kick back a notch. Being close enough from town, yet far enough to make you feel you are excluded. More...

Thanks for a very pleasant Cape tea but was sorry not to see the famous throne as only my wife had access
The rooms were neat and tidy. The breakfast was great cos there was a variety of things to eat. The restaurant's food is not expensive at all and so worth it. We ordered room service the entire weekend. More...
