Goedemoed Country Inn
Ranked #7 of 14 Hotels in Paarl
Reviewed 2 December 2013

Kym and Heather welcomed us - three weary cyclists - in with a rare hospitality. Our room was extremely comfortable, bed sheets particularly divine and we woke mightily refreshed. The house is set amid stunning surroundings, its hard to imagine a better spot to appreciate Paarl.

We spent four extremely enjoyable restful days and nights here immediately following, and given the same garden room as, Bev494 whose review is below. Cannot understand her inaccurate and negative comments. For starters, Wi-Fi internet access is not merely exceptionally good and fast, but is totally FREE ! You do not even have to enter a password, so maybe she has confused Goedemoed Country House with another property. Goedmoed is immediately surrounded by a working vineyard, although Owners Kim and Heather are not themselves farmers. The room had two large single beds pushed together to create a huge and comfortable king-size, so no problem there. True, the bathroom tiles had been overpainted - actually rather well in a satin finish - but bearing in mind that this property was built in 1818 it follows that even the grandest dame of all would require a bit of face powder at nearly 200 years old ! There were no water leaks and the room was perfectly clean, if not the most modern. The water was always piping hot. All electrical equipment worked satisfactorily. We did not suffer any power cuts, but there had been a storm a few days before which had apparently created an outage.

Frankly, if you are the sort of person who prefers a characterless business chain motel block with every room in every location identical, then this is not for you. However, if you want to enjoy the charm of a one-off property with extremely personable owners and a great breakfast all combining to give you a relaxing and happy experience that will stay in your memory for years, then don't hesitate to book. We just wish that there were many more places like this !

The entrance to the Guest House was beautiful. The driveway was lined with roses.
The hosts were friendly and helpful, but the website pictures are misleading. We neither got the double room we booked or the modern bathroom.
We did not enjoy the close proximity to a noisy and busy road. We thought it was on a wine farm. The dirty and very old bathroom was in disrepair. Tiles were painted over, and the water leaked out of the wall. The grime and lifting filler around the bath was awful. No chains on the plugs, couldn't get the plug out of the bath. No electricity at 7pm when we arrived back at the GH. No hot water to have a bath after a long journey. No DSTV. Having to pay R40 per hour for WiFi when its free most places. If we had not already paid we would not have stayed there. Nor will we do so again.

We slept on a nice chalet with entrance on the garden. Very nice and rustic bathroom with organic products. We experienced a wonderful aperitivo on the terrass with a good cold white wine and view on the beautiful mountains. It reminded my childhood in the italian countryside but enriched with the sensations of the southafrican winelands. The owner is very talkative and his wife very kind to recommend good places to eat.

Goedemoed is a beautiful place with the most divine scenery of the mountains. Rooms are very clean and roomy and the breakfast buffett was delicious. Kim the host was very friendly and welcoming and offered advice on the best places to go which always turned out to be great. Whatever you needed he sorted it out for you. A very child friendly place which is nice when staying over with an infant and toddler. I will definetly go back to Goedemoed next time I am in Paarl. I didn't want to leave.

Unfortunately we only stayed here for one night - we would have loved to stay longer. The rooms were very clean, the pool and garden were great to relax in and Kim was a great host. He recommended a really good restaurant to us and took great care of us - especially when we had to go to A&E due to our horse riding accident.
We'd recommend to stay here and would love to come back!

We came to Paarl without a car - which obviously is a rare scene! But who needs a car when you have the kindness of Heather and Kim? Kim took us up to the mountains when we wanted to go hiking, drove us to town for dinner, and gave us all the advice we needed for the perfect Paarl experience! Not to forget the perfect breakfast!
Their hospitality got us to stay another night - and definitely coming back!
The nicest people!!! And gorgeous dogs!
