What do our guests say about us

Testimonials

“I believe a BIG thank you must go to all the staff of the Houw Hoek Hotel, who were involved in the preparation, cooking and presentation of the wonderful food served at the Christmas Day buffet luncheon at the hotel. We do not think the meal we had could have been beaten anywhere else.

The staff on duty in the dining room were all efficient and friendly, which made the eating that much nicer. An added touch was the glass of bubbly with orange juice served as we entered the venue.

Congratulations all round. Well done and you really are the A Team!”

“It was our son’s wedding and we decided to choose Houw Hoek Hotel as the venue, because of its location, affordability and of coarse, the hotel have memories. 33 Years ago we stayed here on our honeymoon and my parents 60 years ago on their honeymoon. We were blown away by the professional way the staff at this hotel, handled the wedding event. Every single staff member were very well trained an professional in their specialized field. Accommodation were 5 star! There is also a lovely Chapel for the ceremony. The setting is stunning and everyone was so friendly and helpful. We will recommend this venue to everybody that we meet. Thanks to you all at the hotel for making our son’s wedding so perfect!!”


“Had a wonderful weekend Had a wonderful weekend at Houw Hoek with a group of friends who gather once a year. We were very well looked after, made to feel welcome and that nothing was too much trouble. Perfect spot close to Cape Town but in the countryside. Fabulous walks – not too challenging but great exercise, giving us the excuse to enjoy our meals, which were well prepared and offered a great variety. Will definitely return! Thank you to all the staff who were very friendly and efficient.”
