out in the country side, De Hoek is an elegant retreat from city bustle. The ambiance is extremely tranquil as one is surrounded by classic style and antique pieces. We ate at the relatively new Bistro which boasts sweeping vistas of the estate; one is almost compelled to want to try a spot of croquet on the lawns it were... More

Beautiful setting and comfortable stay. We have stayed here a number of times, mostly because of the excellent food - it was as delicious as always! We were booked into the new wing - very modern and stylish and a wonderful sense of space. But we did miss the comfort and cosiness of the older more established rooms. Staying at... More

Beautiful, peaceful location. Ideal for a weekend away from stressful city life. About 1 hour from Gauteng. Lovely gardens and views. Spacious, clean and comfortable rooms. Supper - starters good, mains mediocre (yes, afraid so), deserts good. Dining staff well trained, polite and efficient - a rare find indeed. We were surprised and disappointed that the breakfast menu did not... More

An unforgetable 50th wedding anniversary! Staff friendly, knowledgeable, tidy and most helpfull. Food excellent. Room was neat and tidy. Service on all levels above par. What more can we say? A suggestion - what about some handles in the bathroom to assist us getting out of the full-size bath?

I was looking for a good place, not too far from Johannesburg, to entertain friends for a celebration weekend. My niece recommended De Hoek and I am so glad she did. We had 5 suites for the Summer Package and from the very beginning everything was perfect. The staff were very proactive in making suggestions (the tv lounge was set... More

My Wife and I decided to have Sunday Lunch at DeHoek to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We arrived and were greeted and shown through to the Restaurant. We ordered a bottle of sparkling wine and this seemed to confuse everyone. The search was on for Champagne Glasses and in the meantime we were left sitting with no menu's, no bread... More

We stayed for one night and on the whole, were disappointed with the experience. The hotel is in a beautiful setting and our room was modern and extremely comfortable but for a 5 star establishment, the service is not up to scratch and there seemed to be a curious lack of management during our stay. The hotels preference is undoubtedly... More

We had a truly excellent conference. Our CEO loved the privacy and the beautiful setting, the food and the service was exceptional. The staff are always willing to go the extra mile. We will definitely make use of the venue again in future.

Booked an evening to surprise my wife. The rooms are very cool. We had a room in the new quarter. On the surface everything was excellent. The only problem we had was the lack of hot water, and the slow service of the meals on Friday night.

This was our second visit to De Hoek Country House, to celebrate a special Anniversary. The attention to detail, from the minute the porter meets you at your car, until you lay your head on the pillow, exceeded our expectations yet again. The linen, bedding, towels, etc are top class. The bed comfortable. The 5-course 5* dinner was outstanding, and... More
