Garden Route Tours and Hotels

The hotel that one will use on a Garden Route Tour will ultimately enhance your whole Garden Route Tour experience. One of the first nice hotels on route to the Garden Route is a old hotel that dates back to the time when slavery was abolished.

This was in the year 1834 – a hotel called The Houwhoek Inn. This Garden Route hotel is a very popular stopover next to the N2 and as the name indicated just before the Houwhoek Pass .

The name refers to the early pioneers that was traveling with ox wagons and they had to hold ( houw vas ) the wagons as they were going down the pass.

This was a full two days by ox wagon and horses down to this romantic stopover in the mountains. The hotel was part of the 5 day trip down to Swellendam .

So on the return journey from Swellendam it was stopover number 3 of the 5 days. One of the previous hotel owners planted a Bluegum Tree (Eucalyptus) in the year 1834 so this specific tree is also claimed to be one of the oldest of its kind on route to the Garden Route. Today it is also just a nice stop for a coffee break.

The beautiful environment with the Masked Weavers that are building their nests hanging from Willow trees is just an ideal environment to enjoy a coffee/ Tea break after a long drive from the Garden Route. Highly recommended Hotel and stopover on your extended Garden Route Tours.
