Goedemoed Country Inn
Ranked #7 of 14 Hotels in Paarl
Reviewed 3 March 2012

What a lovely place to stay! Kim and Heather are lovely very hard working hosts who put themselves out to make your stay very special. The room was clean and bright with lovely linen on the bed. The wet room shower was great with lovely complimentary toiletries.
Breakfast was wonderful with many choices and Kim's cooked breakfast was worthy of Master Chef! Wifi connection was very good and Kim, Heather and all the staff couldn't do enough for us. The golf course was 5 minutes away as was the mall and many of the good vineyards. We would definately stay here again!

We have recently returned from a short break in Paarl and stayed at Goedemoed after analysing the reviews on trip advisor. We found the accommodation spotless and the situation beautiful. We definitely hope to go back, Kim's breakfast was wonderful and he was helpful and professional, all the staff were totally charming. I would recommend this accommodation without hesitation.

Room Tip: We liked the garden rooms best

We had a warm welcome from Heather and a very welcome swim in the pool (after a hot drive across the Karoo!) Our room was comfortable with en suite shower-room (not so fond of the wet room concrete floor) a/c and fridge. Big plus to us was the good wi-fi connection.
Breakfast was inside as we had rare rain(!) very tasty but a very casual affair with the owner Kim doing everything from serving to cooking. Very handy for the nearby wineries (we visited Laborie and Fairview)

We stayed here for 2 nights as my sister was getting married in a nearby vineyard. the owners were extremely helpful, very nice comfortable rooms, 3 lovely resident dogs. Kim the owner makes a wonderful breakfast every morning. Great farm/ vineyard feel with breathtaking views of the mountains

My wife and I stayed in the beautiful Goedemoed Country Inn while touring the winelands. Firstly, the owners Kim and Heather were so welcoming that we felt at home straight away. We had a room just off the terrace that was equipped with en suite, TV and A/C. Our room was decorated in a quaint country style that really suited the property. The property itself really is in a special location. The lawn runs down to a vineyard that is draped by uninterrupted views of the stunning mountain ranges of Paarl. On Kim's advice we kicked back on the terrace, opened a few bottles of local red, got some cheese and grapes and sat back enjoying the spectacular mountain range turn red as the sun set. The property is about 45 mins drive from Cape Town and easy to find from the Motorway. An ideal destination from which you can explore all the winelands. I would definitely return.

You will be sure of a warm welcome here and the rooms and lawn are subject to the stunning backdrop of vinyards and mountains. The rooms are ensuite and furnished to a high standard, with private patios and look out to the pool and views. Breakfast is served on the terrace and makes the perfect start to the day with fresh fruit and cooked breakfast! The guesthouse is easy to find and close to ammenities.

The area north of Paarl is stunning and there are some amazing drives out into nearby towns. Paarl itself is a busy town and not typical of the more picturesque areas around the cape. If you are wanting to spend time in Cape Town, or want to be close to the cape and beach areas then I wouldnt recommend Paarl as it is 35mins outside of Cape Town - longer in traffic! However, it is reasonably close to Stellenbosch and allows a good base for exploring! I would recommend the guesthouse and the hosts are every bit as hospitable as you would want from South Africa, making the stay even more enjoyable!
