4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Would have been good value for a 4 star hotel. Missing the real excellence as with a 5 star hotel. We recommend more control over noisy groups after e.g. 11:00 at night which interfered with our sleep quality. The rest overall good.

I visited De Hoek to play background Piano Music for a very Special Luncheon on the 3rd of May. What a stunning Surprise. When you are made to feel welcome by every single staff member from the minute you set foot out of your car, you already feel spoilt! Apart from that, the setting of the Venue is absolutely amazing... More

We had a great weekend stay at De hoek and felt very spoilt from the moment we arrived. From the high tea when we arrived through to the archery the next morning everything had so much attention to detail. The food was good, simple classic, French cuisine executed with precision. Felt especially spoilt when arriving back from dinner to find... More

Was absolutely amazed at the attention to detail and people going out of their way to ensure a lovely stay. We were spoilt from arrival to check out. The food was absolutely fabulous and what lovely views this place has. I loved the fact that when you return from dinner, the bubble bath is waiting with some rose petals and... More

Excellent venue. Staff are very professional and well trained. Breakfast was exceptional, rooms were clean and large, gardens well maintained and the location is perfect just 80 kilometres out of Johannesburg. A lot of attention to detail is shown. What impressed me the most was that each room had a personal touch to try and make it feel like home.

Tranquil, elegant, superb, five star. This is a real treat hidden in the beautiful landscape of the Magsliesberg. The staff are exceptionally well trained. The food is exquisitely and tastefully prepared. The gardens are a picture. A perfect wedding venue, weekend retreat, business conference venue, or ideal for a sumptuous lunch with friends.

De Hoek is an absolutely excellent place with excellent food and personnel. We would love to stay there again. It is a very calm atmosphere for when you just like to escape from town. Wonderful gardens with the most wonderful fresh air. Just one word BEAUTIFULL!!!

I brought my wife to De Hoek for our wedding anniversary this past weekend. We were greeted by beautiful gardens and well planned spaces. Upon arrival, we were ushered to a room straight out of a 70s lodge. We requested a move to the more modern suites which de hoek accommodated. We received apologies for not being given the option...
