Houw Hoek Inn, a gracious combination of old world charm and modern conveniences, is the oldest hotel in South Africa, located on the site of a toll gate established in the Dutch East India era. It has been licensed since 1834. Situated in the heart of the Kogelberg (Biosphere) Reserve, 90km from Cape Town and 75km from Cape Town International Airport, you will rapidly forget congested freeways and pollution in this beautiful and peaceful environment.

The furnishings are elegant with an emphasis on comfortable, with large spaces and terraces with views of the magnificent mountains. Steeped in history with all the luxuries of home to ensure a magnificent stay. Most of the existing ground floor building dates back to 1779. The upper storey was added in 1860 and since then the Inn has been extended progressively.

The adjoining old farm buildings have been converted into wedding and conference venues retaining their original character and offering all the facilities required. Today, gracious old oaks, flanked by towering poplars and one of the largest blue gum trees in South Africa, spread their sheltering branches over the historic Inn. Relax in the beautiful surroundings or enjoy the large variety of activities available: ‘beach’ volleyball, miniature golf, swimming, hiking, pool and bird-watching.

Houw Hoek Inn has 49 beautifully appointed rooms, of which 12 are family rooms and 37 are double rooms, sleeping a total of 170 guests per night in.
