It was a pleasure to get away from the city and experience old school service, a hospitable reception and the best trained team I have come across in many years locally and internationally. The accommodation was comfortable and inviting while the meals were of an international standard.

De Hoek is a wonderful get away from Johannesburg and we would definitely return. The accommodation is well thought out and there are plenty of private spaces on the estate, so you never feel crowded. We were one of a few couples not part of a weekend wedding and the bar and wait staff took care of us despite the...

We were very fortunate to have our annual Teambuilding with our company at De Hoek Country Hotel this year. Their service, friendliness of staff and food was excellent. The rooms are spacious and so neat. Doesn't matter what we needed or till what time we sat and chatted around the fire there was always a member of the staff to...

Corporate retreat and workshop event with colleagues. The food - breakfast, lunch and dinner were perfection. I stayed in an older, very large room in one of the guest houses on the property - very well appointed and quiet. Some colleagues had rooms in the main building and complained that guest noise from the bar area kept them up. Best...

The rooms were large and roomy with all amenities. Double bed superbly comfortable. Comprehensive supply of marshmallows, rusks and cookies with real filter coffee (plunger). Dining was a superb experience, and the wine list was comprehensive, with well trained staff. Would have liked some Euro-style 2-point plugs for charging mobiles, etc.

The setting was absolutely beautiful. The staff was friendly and very eager to please. The food was outstanding and I would recommend De Hoek as the perfect romantic getaway. Great value for money with a tranquil feeling of being hours away from the city.

The setting and overall experience at De Hoek was lovely and I would certainly go back - however my one comment would be that for a five star property the service at times was a little slow, especially at breakfast and at the conference breaks where delegates had to wait for refreshments. This is not due to staff being unwilling...

Beautiful surroundings and lovely place. Eight of us arrived for breakfast, unfortunately the service was poor and we had to continually look for a waiter. Salt and pepper was empty, had to get up and take from other tables. Plates were cold and food was cold. What a pity for such a nice place.

De Hoek is a very special place, perfect for a private or corporate break-away from the city. It is less than an hour from Johannesburg, in a lovely valley. Whereas they had was mostly corporate groups when we were there, it is a perfect venue for na wedding of personal get-away, during quieter times. The Stonehouse Bridge is perfect for...
