One of the most beautiful places we stayed in South Africa. The rooms (cottages) were beyond belief - so well appointed. The bathroom was incredible - I never take baths in hotels but I couldn't resist! The attention to detail and personal touches were amazing: a fire lit in our room while we were at dinner, hot water bottles in... More

Five star! Beautiful gardens, splendid rooms, friendly staff. Situated just outside Plettenberg Bay, the Country House is a perfect stop over on the Garden Route. Cold night, a roaring fire and perfectly clear sky... Almost too good to be true!

This was the venue my daughter and her fiancé chose to celebrate their wedding day with family and friends. From our very first meeting with Claire to the day we all departed we felt like family. Special personal touches like the hand written welcome letter in our bedroom, the notes and sweets left on our bed at turndown, and log... More

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

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
