Houw Hoek Inn
The entrance under the huge Blue Gum tree
Houw Hoek Inn is the oldest hotel in South Africa and located on the site of a toll gate established in the Dutch East India era.
The Inn is situated in the heart of the Kogelberg (Biosphere) Reserve
, 90km from Cape Town.
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. The Barn
(max 220 guests) and the Ou Kaapse Hoek
(max 160 guests) are the two venues most often used for weddings & functions. A garden wedding
can be also be arranged, weather permitting.
Our magnificent garden with the Houw Hoek mountain range in the background makes for great wedding photographs.
