The attention to detail was fantastic, lovely venue, food was fantastic (consistently) and they know about great service and how to treat their guests and make them feel special. Spa treatments were incredible. I was very sick with the flu and was most impressed with the staff sending me a pot of ginger and honey tea to my room, the... More

For an expensive weekend at a five star hotel, I would have at least expected a greeting at the reception, a welcome drink and a brief overview of what went on at the hotel during the day, where to find the dining room, lounge etc. however this was not the case. Our bath towels had holes in them, the bath... More

A charming setting and a nice look from the bridge over the river. The check in was swift and we settled in to the North Quarter room. The toy on the bed was a nice touch. However the room is quite basic and the porter did not show us how the various controls worked especially for the underfloor heating !... More

We went to this hotel to celebrate my husband's birthday. As everyone else on this page agrees - the setting is tranquil and idyllic, but not 5 star. Being there at the end of winter, finding they had underfloor heating (even in the bathroom) was a bonus, but we weren't shown where or how to adjust it - and when... More

From the moment you arrive, you appreciate that all the awards on display are there by right. Our greeting on arrival was warm and welcoming, the check-in was fast and efficient and the room awaiting us in the New Quarter was magnificent. In particular, small homely touches like the cuddly lion on the bed and the cheerful duck on the... More

Was an absolutely wonderful weekend. From the moment we arrived to when we left everything was perfect. The staff are friendly, helpful and always smiling. The food was delicious - the butternut risotto that I had on the one evening was out of this world. The rooms are stylish and cosy!

What a beautiful location to spend a few days! The rooms were brand new (in the New Quarter where we stayed) with super attention to detail - including a heater put on in the bedroom one evening when it was especially chilly. The backdrop of the Magaliesburg is spectacular and you really feel at peace. The service experience was spot... More

De Hoek is a beautiful venue focused on small to mid sized luxury corporate conferences. The rooms are old fashioned but spacious and kind of luxurious.. The food is great. The place is beautiful. But that is where it stops. Service is not great. There is nothing to do but eat and sleep. No spa. No warm pool. No gym.... More

I was at De Hoek Country Lodge for a business function and everything was perfect. The staff were helpful and attentive, nothing was too much trouble and the venue itself is just stunning! Would definitely recommend this as a venue for corporate functions but I would also love to go back as a weekend guest and just enjoy the stunning... More
