When we started the drive into the property as it seemed we were way off the beaten path. Our guide joked that we were staying in tree houses so wasn't sure what we would find until we got to the main gate, it was beautiful. The accommodations, service, food were all wonderful. We were graciously greeted and shown to our... More

A very warm welcome. The intial reaction when met and shown to our cabin was this is too good for us! The accommodation was brilliant and the staff polite, courteous and very helpful. Breakfast lovely and the hotel restaurant for the evening meal first class. Could not have asked for more.

Just 10 kms from Plett - set in a beautiful Forest. Charming, tranquil spot ideal for kids. Food is good and the staff try their best when the Hotel is running at capacity. Thank you to Claire, Donald and Mpo who were amazing.

Hunter's had definitely the best service I have experienced anywhere in the world I have travelled so far (26 countries and counting). Mind you, I do not typically stay in 5 star lodges, but given things are cheaper in South Africa than Canada, it was affordable to take the plunge. When you drive in, you are greeted at your car...

Its expensive! so your expectations are high. Yes its beautiful and all the 5 star reviews have their merit. However, for us the negatives just outweighed the positives. Number 1. No Wi-Fi in the lodges. This wouldn't be much of a problem but then coupled with the fact that cell phone reception is completely unreliable - it becomes a place... More

If you are looking for a place to relax with excellent food and service look no further. Arrived on.Christmas Day and initially when we were driving in you begin to doubt your decision to stay, however you will not be disappointed. Greeted by Alan who was very attentive as were all the staff. Very comfortable lodges and value for money

I was not impressed when the manager called me the driver! After all tour leaders are the ones who actual bring repeat business! I found they pushed... More

As others have noted, the little thatched-roof cottages are charming, with a private balcony and a high roof. Beware though that small bits of I don't know quite what will fall from the thatched roof all over the place, including the bed. Our reception was most friendly and welcoming, even though they couldn't find our reservation (confirmed by the hotel... More

Nice lodge, but dozens of ants in the bed and our luggage. Management sloppily responding. Food good, prices okay, WiFi only at reception area. Water in pool milky and cold. Far below standard of a five star rating. Cannot be recommended for a luxury stay.

We spent two nights at this supposed 5 star establishment, we were very excited as this hotel has excellent reviews, however we left with a somewhat bitter taste in our mouths, So for the good points: beautiful location and the gardens are a horticulturists delight, a very warm welcome from the staff made us think this was paradise,the public areas...
