Rates at Humewood Hotel range from R800 to R1130 depending on the room and number of people. Breakfast at the Coffee Shop Restaurant is included in the rates. After a very exhausting day in PE, we were welcomed by the friendly staff at the reception, who made us feel so at home. We had a wonderful room – clean, spacious and very comfortable. We were served a tasty dinner in the dining room by friendly staff. Breakfast was enjoyed on the patio with a wonderful view of the sea. No hesitation about returning. I will certainly recommend this Hotel.” – Claire TripAdvisor.

“My stay at The Humewood Hotel was really short as I had checked-in at 6 am and was there for nearly 6 hours but those 6 hours we’re really nice and peaceful. The view from the hotel was very beautiful; I had gone for a walk at the beach which was right in front of the hotel. The breakfast spread was nice as the food was really amazing, I really enjoyed it and it helped me sleep for few hours before heading towards the airport. So overall I can say that this was a very short yet sweet stay. Truly recommend this hotel to other travellers.” – Nitin TripAdvisor.

The Hotel is very central in Humewood, where you can stroll to various restaurants or just take a walk on the beachfront. The boardwalk is also within walking distance.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
