Beatiful old dutch style house set amongst vineyards. The owner and staff were all very helpful and friendly. Arrive in time for afternoon tea and some excellent cake! This is an excellent place to chill and take it easy. There are some great vineyards to visit. We ate at Simonsig (just down the road) , Tokara - at the deliCATesen...

We had been advised by locals to try and stay at a guest house on a wine farm rather than at a trendier hotel like le Quartier Francais for example and we were so happy we followed their advise. Hawksmoor house is a fantastic place to stay. It has this boutique feeling while managing to keep the warmth and authenticity...

What a truly amazing place to stay. Before we went to Hawksmoor, we had spent a week in Clifton in a self-catering apartment overlooking the coast and we thought that was beautiful. But little did we know how much of treat Hawksmoor House would be! We had booked our trip through their website and the booking process was very simple....

An incredible place to relax and take in the beautiful scenery of the Cape Winelands. The staff at Hawksmoor could not do enough to make our stay as perfect as possible (making dinner reservations for us and organising massages for us in our room). You will not be disappointed - the rennovation of the house, the spacious rooms and the...

I highly recommend Hawksmoor House. The grounds are beautiful, the decor is impeccable and everything about Hawksmoor House exudes charm. It is luxurious and also cozy, and the service is so personalized. Breakfast was very good, as was the afternoon tea and cake. And all the antiques and the architecture are amazing and make the stay especially special. The service...

This has been our first stay at a bed & breakfast at all. And to be honoust we have been a little bit worried about the differences between a hotel and B&B's. However, we can just agree with all the other reviews: this place is really special. Not just because of the buildings and the old furnitures (which gives you...

We stayed here in November for four nights. The house is in lovely countryside, on a working farm, is well maintained with lovely spacious rooms. Our room had plenty of windows for natural daylight and a welcomed gas fire as the nights do get chilly! The bathroom had an enormous bathtub and shower. The living room is comfortable, and cosy...

The Hawksmoor House is one of the most beautiful and unique guesthouses that we have visited. The furniture, country-style kitchen, warm fireplace, house wines, and hospitality all contribute to a homey, yet opulent environment. It is wonderfully romantic, and perfect even during bad weather because there is so much to see within the house itself. The homemade cake served with...

Hawksmoor House is a sensitively restored Cape Dutch house (mansion!) set on a working farm and vineyard. Not only is the location ideal (25 mins from Cape Town and 10 to Stellenbosch town centre) but the accomodation is perfect. There are rooms in the main house and another 2 in the annexe around 100 metres away. We sat in our...
