My wife and I stopped over towards the end of a delightful garden route holiday and we were overwhelmed with the warm welcome we received. The first thing you notice is the impressive building with beautiful gardens, tennis court and pool, the open frontage and the feeling of natural comfort are all self evident . We were allocated the Elizabeth... More

Great service, good food, beautiful rooms with amazing bathrooms. The staff cannot do enough for you. The house is beautifully renovated with comfort everywhere. The gardens are lovely. You could spend the night in the bathroom it is so gorgeous. Breakfast delicious. Stay as long as you can and enjoy the ambience.

Excellent 5 star venue in a great location. We hosted a very successful quality leadership dinner forum at the Hacklewood Hill Country House. The venue exceeded my expectation in everyway. Staff highly professional, accommodating and as for the service - simply faultless. Highly recommended!

The house is gorgeous and has recently been refurbished whilst maintaining it's Victorian features, and you... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful country manor at the beginning of our Garden Route drive. Had we know how beautiful this place would be, and what a lovely town Port Elizabeth is, we would have stayed more than the one night. Upon arrival, the gates opened up to the beautiful grounds.

Thank you for taking the time out to write this incredible review about our Hacklewood Hill Country House. From the day we opened our doors at Hacklewood the idea was to keep the originality of the vintage house, where guests would be transported into a different era. A lot of labour has gone into this ideal. In fact many of... More

Once you have passed the gate and are in the garden you get a good feeling of you have arrived to a place that is something extra. The friendly and warm personal welcome make you feel like home. The rooms are nice furnished and the bathroom well equiped. After having had dinner and breakfast it is easy to yearn for... More

Lovely Victorian ambiance but not really suited to the business traveller. Have stayed here twice but next time I'll be looking for an alternative. The rooms do not have any table / desk / workstation so the business traveller's laptop becomes exactly that - a lap top. Rooms clean and a little over the top on period finishes (a 4-poster... More

I took my parents to lunch on Mothers day at the restaurant - the service was great, the food was delicious - definitely PE's best kept secret! The dining room and reception area were very cosy and welcoming. Will definitely be back for more!

We only had 1 night here and wished we could have stayed longer. Such a beautiful place and restaurant was superb for both dinner and breakfast. Just loved everything about it - the building, the room, the HUGE bathroom, the beautiful decor and the food. Absolutely no complaints
