My husband and I stayed at Hacklewood for three nights. The bedroom was very large and newly redecorated in (best way I can describe it) updated Sanderson. Luxury,elegance and thought was in every detail. The staff were very attentive but not 'in your face'. There is an excellent chef and, being small (only 8 rooms) can cater to guests' whims.... More

We were transferred here when there was a problem with our booking at another hotel. We were received graciously at very short notice. The guest house is a lovely old house with high ceilings, wooden floors and lovely grounds. The rooms are each unique and beautifully appointed with a huge bathroom. Each bathroom has a unique bath and a large... More

This is a fascinating look into the past. The rooms and furnishings are deliberately Victorian and very quaint. The staff are helpful and friendly and the evening meal was excellent. It is a little shabby in parts. It is very near the airport (convenient but not noisy). There is free WiFi, but the reception was poor unless one was enthroned... More

5 minutes from the airport in a secluded part of town, ideal small private hotel to unwind in after flying in from Europe, excellent service and comfort, a little gem tucked away from the hassles of daily life

I really enjoyed my one night at Hacklewood Hill, largely because of the warm, attentive service and my enormously spacious and welcoming room. The bathroom deserves a special mention - it is absolutely beautiful, complete with old-fashioned bath and basin, sofa, renovated shower, rugs, large armoire and other charming touches. The gardens are also lovely - I had a brief... More

We stayed here on our last night in South Africa- chose it to avoid an early start and long drive before flying. Welcome was very friendly. Our room was perfect and the entire suite fabulous. Had a glass of wine before dinner in front of a welcoming fire. Dinner and breakfast were very good. If we come back to P.E.... More
