A lovely and amazing outing to the winelands.The room was generous and warm (thanks to underfloor heating and a gas fireplace). Breakfast was good, the cheese platters in front of the fire scrumptious and decadent.The staff was friendly and accommodating - in fact it felt like we were at home, just a grander, older one.

Beautiful guest house with gorgeous breakfast and stunning antiques and grounds. Felt like staying in your dream house and not hotel like at all. Had a super massage in-room. No restaurant but you get afternoon tea and can order a cheese platter if you're staying in (we have a baby so we tended to). Cakes are excellent! White room was OK but a little worn, perhaps they gave us this one as we had a child. Carpet was v dirty and needed a decent clean. Ask for the 4 poster room off the main room in the house. Amazing view of table mountain. Lovely hummingbirds and gorgeous dogs!

I had the most amazing stay at Hawksmoor House this week. Arriving on a sunny, cold winters day at this beautiful country house filled with the scent of freshly baked cookies (which I enjoyed with a cup of tea in front of the fireplace!) has been a fabulous treat! My room was the largest of them all (I was allowed a little peak into the others too). It was the white room, which has its own fireplace and underfloor heating and it just felt so cosy. The staff has been fantastic and I really enjoyed the company of the three lively hunting dogs who would follow me everywhere. I loved it so...

Enjoyed the farm, nice and peaceful and relaxing, lots of info from the management and staff, there wine is great and the dinner was severed on front of the fire with rose petal's spread on the table and the local food was very tasty and in keeping with the place. The plus points for me are no TV or radio nor papers, nice and warm with underfloor heating and a gas fire in the room. I would like some comfortable chairs in the bedroom for reading, I know other rooms did have but not ours.Would stay again!!
