I was given a very warm welcome on arrival and I was made to feel special throughout my stay. I loved the beautiful lush gardens and the gorgeous trees. To my surprise, I was treated to a romantic turndown - a bubble bath was drawn for me with candles & flowers to set the tone - it was the perfect...

My wife and I stayed at De Hoek for one night. When you drive through De Hoek's gates you immediately get a feeling of peace and tranquility. They give a lot of attention to detail and everything is clean and spotless. From the gardens to the rooms. We also enjoyed an amazing breakfast the following morning.

I thoroughly enjoyed me recent trip to De Hoek. It was just the break I needed and I look forward to heading back there soon. The gardens are beautiful, the rooms comfortable and the staff attentive. Just the place to break away to.

De Hoek exudes class, right from the drive in across the splendid bridge to the beautifully manicured gardens and that's just on the outside. The hotel is wonderful, impeccably clean full of character and lots of spaces to explore. Being there on business allows you to clear your head properly and focus on what you need to - this is...

Got there with high expectations. Some stuff was ok (the finger sandwiches) . The rest was really average. Dinner was ok. Nothing to blow the lights out. Starter and desert very average. The main course was supposed to be curry- it was a very dry and tasteless affair. Really tough to get a curry to be tasteless! The service was...

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

Went for our first wedding anniversary. The staff were amazing. 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.
