The child-friendly Houw Hoek Hotel is situated in the heart of the Kogelberg Nature Reserve, a leisurely 80 km from Cape Town, just off the N2 freeway. We are peacefully positioned in an exquisite location, between majestic mountains and beautiful ponds, making this the perfect place to relax and unwind. Many of our rooms have fireplaces for those cosy winter evenings and private balconies with magnificent views. We offer five air-conditioned conference facilities. Our romantic setting also makes us the perfect wedding venue.

Built in 1779, we are the oldest licensed hotel in South Africa and the winner of two Haute Grandeur Global Excellence Awards – The Best Scenic Environment Hotel in South Africa and The Best Historical Hotel in South Africa. We offer so much to keep the family entertained – two refreshing swimming pools, two games rooms and a host of outdoor activities. Join us for drinks or a delicious meal on the terraces with panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. Enjoy 5-star treatment while our outstanding service ensures that you have a magnificent stay.
