We were booked there for one night before our flight back to US. We may have had a different experience if our rooms in the "edge house" had water; we saw them and they looked renovated (but no AC). Since no water to the rooms, we were moved into "Classic Rooms" in the manor and dairy house. No towels so we had to walk through the house at night opening doors and cupboards as no one there to assist; upholstered chairs have ripped arms, no AC, dead flowers in two of our rooms with dirty old water in the vases, and someone's shoes were under the chair in my room. The place is locked up with a gate but they fail to give you the code. Fairly certain my family will add some reviews with pics to document all this. One of my party actually took a taxi to another hotel - we should have followed. Bottom line: avoid.

Response from Jeandre Louw, General Manager at Hawksmoor House at Matjieskuil Farm
Responded 2 weeks ago
Dear Mr Jim Rielly, Many thanks for your valued feedback on your stay with us at Hawksmoor House, we value all feedback as it creates an opportunity for us to improve. we pride ourselves on creating a home away from home experience welcoming guests into our very special and unique property and want them to leave as part of the Hawksmoor Family. We are very disappointed that we had to move you to the Classic rooms and wish to apologize that your welcome was tainted by the rooms that you originally booked that had no water feed due to reasons out of our control. luckily, we were able to move you to rooms that had backup water tanks and could Provide you with rooms that had water. The gate details and property orientation was explained to the guests that was booked in the Villa as part of your group and they informed that they will carry over the information to the rest of the group as everyone was in a bit of a rush to get out for dinner. we are so sorry that this information never reached you. due to the last minute move we might have dropped the ball on minor housekeeping aspects as this was last minute rooms that were rushed through to have them available for your group, we understand that these minor things had a major effect on your stay and thus offered complimentary wine and drinks as another token of our apology, we have put forward a standard that all rooms should be 200% even if they are not occupied this will prevent this from happening in the future. Rest assured we have implemented several measures and upgrades to avoid this from happening again. we hope to welcome you back to Hawksmoor in future. Kindest Regards Jeandre Louw

Unpolite welcome by Manager Brown. During loadshedding we were left with 3 candles! Rechargeable lamps would have done a huge improvement. This was first time during visits to the farmlands where no alternatives were made to overcome the loadshedding. Nice bathrooms and friendly staff.

Hello Mr Fritz , Many thanks for your valued feedback on your stay with us at Hawksmoor House. We are very disappointed that you found your stay overrated and felt your welcoming was unpolite , we endeavour to provide us much information on check in as possible to provide you the right information while at the property , you where very dissatisfied about loadshedding while it was being mentioned, during your check in process which can be annoying as any South African would attest , but is also something we have no control over regardless of if you where aware of loadshedding or not prior to travelling to South Africa as you exclaimed ,we do however provide candles to add to the ambiance of the historic building that you where staying in as opposed to LeD rechargeable lighting , but are in the process of getting alternate power installed to mitigate the discomfort of loadshedding which seems will remain with South Africa for a while. We do apologies that the property didn’t meet your expectations and appreciate the good feedback too. Kind Regards Lloyd Brown

Nice winery, stylish rooms with awesome table mountain view, friendly staff and good location near Stellenbosch. Even from the main house, where they serve nice breakfast as well as some food and at night, you have great views to the mountain

We loved our stay in this historical Cape Dutch estate. The breakfast was excellent, the room were clean and spacious with characters. A peaceful place where you can chill by the pool watch the sunset and enjoy the beautiful view. This place is a 20 min drive to Stellenbosch Center.

W e had a wonderful time. Just a couple of things to note, there was a lot of dust in the living room/dining room. The waitresses were very polite but there were some that are not very attentive to the guests.

We enjoyed very much our stay at Hawsmoor House. The farm is beautiful and breakfast outside on the terrace is gorgeous. Dinner there was also lovely. Unfortunately there was no internet in our room beautiful but away from the main house. The pool was being cleaned so we could not use it unfortunately.

We stayed in the map room which was beautiful and clean. However, the rest of the experience was disappointing. The website boasts about Afternoon Tea with delicious daily treats. When I enquired I was told by the receptionist that she doesnt know whether anything was baked. It was a Saturday. We then received heated store bought patries. We werent told about the honesty bar. Dinner was served by a lady who did not even tell us what was on our plates. We couldnt open our verandah door as previous guests broke the key off in the door and Hawksmoor didnt want to ‘replace the whole door’. The property needs maintenance - the furniture on the verandah at the manor house is broken. We were asked what the occassion for our visit is (wedding anniversary), but there wasnt anything special in our room
