We found Hawksmoor House by accident, having hurriedly left our accommodation near Franschhoek. We were not prepared for what we discovered. The old property is beautiful and has somehow retained all of its charm without becoming pretentious or indulgent. The rooms and living areas are cozy and comfortable and the staff are accommodating and helpful. The meals on offer are...

We spend 2 nights at Hawksmoor and loved every minute of it. Friendly hosts, good breakfast and dinner in the beautiful old mansion with a view onTablemountain. It's a good place to visit Stellenbosch and Franschenhoek etc and easy to reach just off of N1. The kids enjoyed the pool and the sweet dogs!

This Guest House is situated on its own wine farm. The room was decorated very nicely but unfortunately our room had no air conditioning as it was summer an AC would have been nice. The breakfast was good with one of the best views each morning. Taste their own wine it is very nice quality wine.

It's a beautiful farm, with nice Cape Dutch architecture. The hosts and staff are also very warm and welcoming. Inside, the decor is rustic for the most part. However, the pictures on the website make this property much more luxurious than reality. Keep in mind that this is a farm. At the time of our stay, the Cape region was...

Our group of 19 were most of the guests in this charming place, and the owner/manager had her hands full with us. We ended up seeing most of the rooms in the place.
