This Guest House is situated on its own wine farm. The room was decorated very nicely but unfortunately our room had no air conditioning as it was summer an AC would have been nice. The breakfast was good with one of the best views each morning. Taste their own wine it is very nice quality wine.

Six years ago we visited Hawlsmoor House. We were here again and it's still the most gorgeous place one could find. Quaint, rustic, charming, romantic, colonial (the nice bit), beautiful all describe Hawksmoor house nicely.

It's a beautiful farm, with nice Cape Dutch architecture. The hosts and staff are also very warm and welcoming. Inside, the decor is rustic for the most part. However, the pictures on the website make this property much more luxurious than reality. Keep in mind that this is a farm. At the time of our stay, the Cape region was...

Our group of 19 were most of the guests in this charming place, and the owner/manager had her hands full with us. We ended up seeing most of the rooms in the place. You will notice that opinion on TA is divided. I believe there are two reasons why: 1. Some people love, and others don't care, for its rustic,...
