Staff were very helpful and courteous, rooms out of this world and food great. From the moment I was guided to the property to my time of departure, I was impressed. Staff helpfulness was unimaginable.

We stayed at De Hoek Country Estate for the weekend in their New Quarter Rooms. Our stay was amazing and paired with good 5 star service and food. De Hoek literally offers incredible personal service and the food was amazing, this is for certain one of the main selling points when staying over. The hotel is also centrally located in... More

Accommodation in very modern, spacious new quarter suites, high ceilings, cool, well equipped, effective aircon, fluffy towels, great tea and coffee in room with nice selection of biscuits. Good garden views. Huge king size beds, best linen. Rooms mostly grey, black, yellow and white in tones. Cool and refreshing in day time but a little bleak and sterile at night.... More

We were given a Superior Suite in the new section of the hotel, which has a total of 32 rooms. A very comfortable bed/bedroom with numerous TV channels is off a little hallway with a desk, coffee/tea facilities and a well-stocked bar fridge. There is a huge bathroom with shower and bath, and a separate toilet. Probably the very best... More

Nestled away close to the cradle of human mankind, this venue is not advertised enough. We attended a working sleepover with a sunrise ballon ride and everything was to perfection. From accommodation through service to hospitality, definitely one not to miss!

What a beautiful setting to celebrate my moms birthday . We had planned to stop for lunch on the way back from a weekend away in the Pilanesberg. The De Hoek team offer the highest quality of service and food . The menu was nothing short of amazing and we celebrated in true style.

De Hoek is one of those 5 star retreats dotted around the periphery of Johannesburg. About an hour’s drive depending on the traffic. In comparison with the Mount Grace which is its competition, they have focused on the food as an area of excellence. The Mount Grace prides on its spa. De Hoek has a massage room with therapists doing... More
