The food as way beyong a 5 star. I only enjoyed the food on day one. On the last the fish provided for lunch was rotten. Richard and Palesa where the best employees ever. They were very friendly and attend to you with a smile on their faces. They deserve to be recognised

SO accommodating, took bags from the car up to the room, didn't feel like going down for wine tasting so they brought it up to us, ran a candle lit, rose petal bath for us after dinner, put truffles out on our bed, were incredibly personable and friendly. All the...

Great romantic stay with my wife starting with a picnic in the Gardens with exquisite wine and food leading to a walk around the well kept grounds. The food and wine selection for dinner was fantastic. Our superior room had great views and the chilled champagne and roses I had organized were there on our arrival. We had a great...

I throughly enjoyed the tranquility that De Hoek had to offer on our weekend away. Nestled in a quite estate away from the road and activity - De Hoek was peaceful and serene. The room was well appointed with sophisticated and beautiful furnishings. The decor and style of the bathroom was equally beautiful. The staff were all too accommodating and...

Fantastic venue to rest and relax. We loved the dinners in the evening and to sit and eat on the verandah is something magical. The staff all out done themselves with their 5 star attention to detail and add to the magic of De Hoek.

Super place. The kitchen service was a concern but hopefully this is now sorted out with the appointment of a head chef. We enjoyed the peace and tranquility. We look forward to a further visit. Kind regards.

We stayed two nights at De Hoek for a business meeting/retreat. The staff was top notch, and went above and beyond in EVERY way to make us feel welcomed. I was often surprised at how a wish or a thought was granted before it was even fully spoken. The food was amazing and the care taken in the preparing of...

We spent the Friday evening at de Hoek in one of the new rooms. The rooms are absolutely gorgeous. We unfortunately couldn't use the pool as it is located directly outside a conference room that was in use so we were bound to our room for most of the stay. The food was still really nice, but not nearly up...

A lovely place to spend a special occasion. We were the only people in the hotel overnight after a hectic corporate function but the food and service could not be faulted. The attention to detail was great.
