We were pleasantly surprised at the lovely setting of the hotel. The room we stayed in (in the new quarters) were absolutely amazing and one of the best we've stayed in. We enjoyed everything about our stay, the food is amazing and staff very friendly. Although rates are pricey, it can be justified in the quality of the rooms, staff...

The rooms (we stayed in the "older" part of the hotel, they have recently added a new section in a more modern style) are...

A wonderful venue, excellent service, food was great! The grounds are beautiful, and the view breathtaking. We spent a lot of the time outdoors and it is hard to reconcile that you are only an hour and a half outside Johanesburg.

On arrival was taken to my room with a beautiful bay window which looked out over the lawns and to the mountain. Room beautiful, however when I wanted some tea, there was no milk and even though I left a note asking for some, I never received any. I loved the bathroom which was spotless. I couldn't enjoy the room...

Great place to spend a night or weekend. Lovely staff and food. The rooms are excellent, clean, have all the amenities one could wish for right down to a Nespresso machine. A few more pods would have been welcome and some milk in the bar fridge. Otherwise highly recommended

We absolutely loved spending time at De Hoek for our Honeymoon. What a beautiful place to celebrate the beginning of our lives together as husband and wife! The food was excellent and the rooms were quiet, private and very comfortable. Thank you De Hoek for making us feel so welcome and for giving us a 5 star experience!

“If you prefer a more classic style ask for a room in the "older" part. If modern and chic does it for you, try the newer section.”
