This was an incredible experience. we were greeted by management on arrival and offered a cool drink. All the hotel amenities were explained to us and we were given a complete tour of the hotel as if they were taking personal guests round their own home. We were then taken to our room, or should I say house, as it... More

My wife and I stayed here while on a road trip out to the garden route and were completely blown away by the level of service offered at Hunter's. Everything was top notch from check in to check out and we felt well cared for for our entire visit. The free standing chalet accommodations were outstanding and quite spacious. On-property... More

This is a first class hotel. When we arrived we were greeted by Claire who provided us with tea while completing our registration form. We were then shown around the hotel before being taken to our cottage. This was beautifully furnished with a large sitting area, large bedroom area and our own patio and garden area. The bathroom was complete... More

Hunters is a gorgeous place to stay and the estate is so large the other properties, Tsala Tree House and Zinzi restaurant don't impinge and cannot be seen at all from the extensive gardens. However, having them on the estate is a real bonus as they give alternative venues to eat and they are all top notch. The accommodation is... More

Like the last review for this hotel I pondered what 5* really meant. i have been lucky enough to stay in a number of such establishments across the world but never really got to grips with the concept. While Hunter's wasn't super swanky or uber fashionable it was really very comfortable and just a nice place to be. If this... More

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
