“Great Stay in Paarl”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2013 via mobile

We started our this year's SA trip with a one night stay at Goedemoed. Though it is in walking distance of quite a few restaurants etc. and definitely not outside the well worth-seeing town of Paarl it feels to be a quiet and peaceful place of its own. The views from the beautiful and well-kept garden and the nice, cozy and roomy garden rooms to the vineyards are breath-taking and Kim, the owner, very happy to chat with the guests, is extraordinarily helpful in any way.

Travelled from the U.S. for our 30th wedding anniversary trip to southern Africa. The Goedmoed Inn made us feel that we'd touched the history of the region. The sunset on the hills and the view of Paarl rocks, surrounded by the vineyards is a beautiful setting. But more than that, the warmth of greeting and attention to our needs by Heather and Kim made us feel that we were staying with old friends. Wide choice of items for breakfast with wonderful fresh fruits. Was one of our best stops along our drive around South Africa. I've uploaded the pics we are showing friends.

Great hospitality and breakfasts from Kim at this charming B&B in Paarl. For me it was a great base from which to play Paarl and Pearl Valley golf courses nearby.

Heather has several large dogs, which roam on the property and totally mind their own business, but might not be to everyone's taste. The decor is very tidy, but sometimes errs to shabby-chic/chintzy, but again that's a taste thing. On the positive there is a refreshing pool and all the rooms (unless there are some in the house) have a little patio area to sit out at.

More a tip about Paarl than the hotel: not a big open restaurant choice on Sunday evenings.

We were in Paarl for the week and were recommended this guesthouse from locals...and so glad we were able to stay here. Goedemoed is very closely located to Paarl mall and all the quaint /delicious restaurants (highly recommend terra mare, noop and marc, you can bring your own wines for a small corkage fee). I was traveling with 2 other friends and we didn't have access to a car, but you can walk to the restaurants in ~15mins. A taxi is only 40 Rand from the restaurants to the gueshouse.
Kim & Heather (along with their 2 black russians Tzar and Inka, and jack russel) made the stay feel so comfortable and I felt completely at home. Kim even gave us a lift to the restaurant during the first day or two where we were getting acclimated to our surroundings. We also met other guests staying at goedemoed that were such wonderful, warm and friendly company. The breakfast spread is amazing and it was such a treat to eat outside on patio overlooking the pool & grape farm.

I definitely plan to visit Paarl again, and when I do I will definitely stay here at Goedmoed.

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)
