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

We first visited Hunters 20 years ago and we were delighted that our happy memories if that stay were surpassed, and we thoroughly enjoyed being spoilt during our three night stay. There is a feeling of peace and tranquility about the place and the staff are well trained and are unobtrusively on hand to assist. The grounds are beautiful, the... More

We had dinner at Zinzi (wonderful) and due to inclement weather, decided not to drive to Plett. The gate guard helped find us a room at Hunter's where Donald greeted us warmly and showed us to a charming lodge; located in a magical garden. The breakfast was superb, great service. Wish we could have stayed longer. Will definitely return for... More

We stayed as a family as a stop off down the Garden Route on our way from Stellenbosch to the fabulous Gorah Elephant Park (also owned and run by Hunter's Hotel Group). We previously stayed 2 nights at the Country House Hotel back in 2012 and I gave it a critical review mainly because dining had moved from the Country... More

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
