Hotel and Conference Center

Welcome to the HOUW HOEK INN, located on the site of a toll gate established in the Dutch East Indian days. The oldest hotel in South Africa, it is situated in the heart of the Kogelberg ( Biosphere) reserve, 90km from Cape Town and 75km from the Cape Town International Airport, you will rapidly forget congested freeways and pollution in this beautiful and peaceful environment.

Most of the existing ground floor building dates from 1779.The upper storey was added in 1860 and since then the Inn has been progressively extended. The adjoining old farm buildings have been converted into wedding and conference venues retaining their original character.

Today, gracious old oaks, flanked by towering poplars and one of the biggest blue gum trees in South Africa, spread their sheltering branches over the historic Inn.
