I had the pleasure of hosting my sisters High Tea before her wedding (held at Pumba Game Reserve), at the beautiful Hacklewood Hill Country House. I received a prompt email response to my query about hosting it there from the Hacklewood Team and from then onwards was blown away by the excellent service I received. The Chef was happy to...

Huge rooms in a suburban setting with fantastic service. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable about PE and surrounds. Ideal for couples or for the business person needing quiet and peace. Will definitely visit again.

Normally very good but this time the conference facilities were not good at all. Accommodation always very homely and clean and location is great and close to airport. Snacks and coffee in room are the best - no awful instant coffee sachets

Hidden germ. Very private and quiet location! Not noticeable from the from the road. Maybe that is the idea. Parking facility might need attention. Not adequate space but may be improved. Otherwise an excellent facility and will stay here again! Rooms very clean and well stocked with basic necessities! Very peaceful establishment.

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

Hi Susan, Thank you for your review, I am thrilled to hear you captured the essence of what we at Hacklewood Hill strive for. Our 1898 Victorian Country House is a home away from home! We most certainly hope you will come again. 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
