The perfect combination of beauty, peace and modern comfort.
Surrounded by awe-inspiring mountains, making this a photographic oasis.

Houw Hoek Hotel is one of the oldest hotels in South Africa and is situated in the heart of the Kogelberg Biosphere Nature Reserve. We are peacefully positioned in an exquisite location, between majestic mountains and meandering streams right in the heart of mother nature. Gracious old oaks, flanked by towering poplars spread their sheltering branches over this historic hotel, once known as the Houw Hoek Inn. The rolling lawns and large ponds create a romantic setting second to none making the Houw Hoek Hotel a popular wedding venue. We are a leisurely 90km from Cape Town and 75km from Cape Town International Airport.

Join us for drinks or a delicious meal on the terraces or the lawns with views of the magnificent surrounding mountains. We offer all the comforts of home and our outstanding service will ensure that you have a magnificent stay.
