Hog Hollow was a great addition to our honeymoon. The rooms are great with a private balcony overlooking the valley. Staff are very helpful, extremely attentive and made our stay very enjoyable. They also provided good recommendations for activities nearby such as horse riding. The food was very good but evening meals are a little overpriced compared to typical SA... More

As part of our family holiday we stayed at Hog Hollow for 4 nights the grounds were beautiful and the rooms comfortable and decorated with traditional African art. The staff could not do enough to ensure that we enjoyed our stay advising us on the best sights, collecting us after a walk and lending us towels and umbrellas for a... More

The hotel is set back from the main road down a small road. The room we had overlooked a beautiful tree covered gorge. The rooms were great and breakfast outside on the patio lovely. All round a great hotel in which to spoil yourself, we liked it so much we are looking to go back next year.

We came in the South African winter, but received a really warm welcome. The staff were friendly and attentive, food was delicious, and the location is stunning. Sadly it was freezing cold, so we weren't able to make use of the pool, which is set in the hillside and looked beautiful.

Hog Hollow is located at the Crags near Nature's Valley on the Garden Route and that is a big plus in itself. The hotel is also located within a Nature Reserve and all the rooms have a patio or deck with a view towards the mountains. Where does one begin? I think with the welcome we received. The staff are... More

My family and I stayed one night at Hog Hollow. I wished we could have had a couple of more days but we were on our way to Port Elizabeth for a Safari. The hotel is lovely and tucked away in the forest with serene views of beautiful meadows and rolling hills. It's peaceful and quite. A great place to... More

What an amazing place, we were initially greeted by a couple of spectacular zebras in the conservancy entrance. As we approached the driveway, a nice man greeted us and invited us to follow him for a drink of sparkling wine on the veranda overlooking the forest and hills. He carried our suitcases to our room #17 which was on the... More
