Desperate to spend our final two nights of our South African journey in relative splendor, both the website and reviews of Hawksmoor House totally wowed us over! It is difficult to rate or review this property in totality because we checked out an hour after arriving. We were so disappointed at how the up-market and misleading website had duped us....

Hawkmoor House is an old landhouse, which is currently used as Bed&Breakfast. There are several buildings and in each building you find a different variety of rooms, each with an own theme (Chinese room, white room etc). The house is situated in a wineyard, so has beautiful surroundings. The location is perfect: away from the 'busy' Stellenbosch, but close enough...
