Spectacular place to stay. From the time you arrive to departure, the Hunter family make it a home away from home to guests. The rooms (all detached guesthouses) are fantastic and spotless, each fitted out with an open fire(lit every night), living area, big bathrooms(very well equipped)refreshments in the room. The grounds and the pool areas were beautiful and the... More

I travelled with my daughter for a business trip. She had to do this function at Hunter's Country Lodge and we stayed over, sadly only for one night. Everything and everyone is simply the very best. I will definitely go back there in the near future with my husband. Claire went out of her way to make us feel welcome.... More

We only stayed for one night at Hunter's Country House, but we were more than impressed! The reception was very professional, they are very helpful and ready to assist you with whatever you need. We were the only guests on the night that we stayed over (out of season) and they went out of their way to make us feel... More

We were made to feel like honoured guests from the moment we arrived and staying at this lovely hotel was one of the highlights of our trip to South Africa. Accommodation was in individual thatched cottages in the grounds while meals were taken the main thatched house with exemplary service in the restaurant. The extensive grounds were available to wander... More

We stayed here for 1 night on a drive along the garden route. Thai was a fantastic holiday and all hotels were first class on our trip, however this was definitely my favourite hotel. The rooms were spacious with gorgeous thatched roofs. The open fire was very welcoming on a wet day. The service is some of the best I... More

On arrival we were treated by Alan and treated as if we were Royalties!!! Fantastic retreat and an oasis!!! We only stayed for one night which will be my ONLY complaint because I could have stayed for a week!!! The accommodation was just perfect and Alan did not feel like he needs to attend to any other guests whilst attending... More

Fabulous hotel that's not widely known. Very picturesque, old English cottages in beautiful gardens. Swimming pool and loungers very nice. Food amazing and there are 2 other restaurants to eat at in the same surroundings. One in a treetop hotel ! Small hotel with fantastic service. Near Plettenberg Bay and Knysa.

This was the most excellent hotel we have ever stayed in! From the moment you arrive till the check out........everything was excellent. In our opinion the hotel deserves 6 stars! The location, the beuatiful villa with private pool, the perfect breakfast, the very nice stylish diningrooms....the service and eye for details!

We enjoyed our stay at beautiful Hunters even though one of the managers recommended that we go on a walk which involved a vertical climb up an ocean cliff. Not great for pensioners who don't like heights. Our highlight was dining at the Tsala restaurant ( one of 3 on the property.) The young female chef is as charming as... More
