Goedemoed Country Inn
Ranked #7 of 14 Hotels in Paarl
Reviewed 17 February 2013

We recently completed our fourth stay at the Goedemoed and stay here every time we visit South Africa, Kima and Heather are congenial hosts who spare no effort to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Given the excellent hospitality and the stunning setting there is no better place for us to stay in Paarl.

As other reviewers have mentioned the property has three dogs who are very friendly. We are not dog lovers but they do not bother us but beware if you do not love dogs.

The Goedemoed is a place to relax and read a book. The TV is still crt and there are 5 stations(?) so bring a good book or use the extensive library.

The ac and other infrastructure items work perfectly but be aware that the inn is a heritage site so is not a gleaming new hotel - it is a historic country inn with all the charm that implies.

Room Tip: We try to stay in Room 1 which is inside the inn with direct access to the deck with the view, I th...

I recently completed my fourth stay at Goedemoed in as many years. From the rose-lined entrance drive to the fantastic views over the mountains and vineyards to Kim and Heather's great hospitality, this place has it all. It feels like it is in the middle of the beautiful countryside, but is within walking (or short driving) distance from a nice mall and the restaurants of Paarl. The superb breakfast on the veranda is a great way to start the day. It is less than an hour from Cape Town and about a minute off of the N2. If I were to quibble, it would be about the TV--an upgrade to DSTV would help top things off.

We stayed with Kim (m) and Heather for only a few days, ehich was our mistake in the first place as they are warm and welcoming hosts in their Kaap-Dutch countryhouse. As Dutch people we felt really in place due to the heritage of the house, although to some the decor could be seen as eclectic bric-a-brac meets antique (do check the rocking horse), we loved this genuine homely feel to the place. The scenic views from the garden and swimming pool are absolutely stunning. Pity though Kim won't be making breakfast for long, as he is been doing it for 7 years and needs a change. They're expanding with a small restaurant -smart plan I would say! If you are afraid of dogs, this is the place to get rid of it. The two big ones are actually both cudly toys, you'll love them in the end. So did our son (11 months). Bonus: stable and free wifi on the premises.

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.
