Fantastic accommodation. Found the waiters to have very little knowledge on wine. Found the food menu very outdated. The setting is lovely and not far from Jo'burg. I felt the venue is almost too conferency for what we were after.

De Hoek Country Hotel has been our choice for a relaxing getaway for a number of years now. Their ability to keep the high standards of service and quality of the rooms is notable. The same hotel staff have been there for a number of years and the warm servce and familairity makes the stay feel very homely. Breakfast is... More

This is a five star venue and mostly pretty good. The rooms are comfortable and modern. Good food and excellent service. A few things though. Despite a blazing fire the conference room was pretty cold. Little touches in the room like enough bath mats and a face cloth in the bathroom were missing. In cold or wet weather the distance...

We stayed at De Hoek for the weekend and it was fantastic. The food is really incredible, every meal we had was amazing. The staff are very well trained, friendly and efficient. We stayed in the old-style rooms in West Quarter with a fire place and a balcony. The room was very cosy, a little compartmentalised with a separate bathroom... More

Everything of the highest standard. From the waiters to the room service and food was of the highset satandard. Will recommend to anybody that needs a realaxing weekend 45mins away from JHB. In addition some quite roads to enjoy cycling that includes the famous Hekpoort Hill. Required to cycle it to get rid of the glorious food.

There is no spa, it is an empty, cold room with no atmosphere and temporary consultants providing mediocre service. So my advice rather don't book the spa and enjoy the excellent food and wine. Overall service is inconsistent and oscillates between excellent and being completely ignored. Have lunch in the main hotel, the brasserie lacks atmosphere- unless you are a... More

I originally came across Dehock for a client function I attended. So impressed with the grounds and the buildings I decided to take my wife for a one night stay before we left South Africa. As you arrive, you could be mistaken for entering a rural European castle. The grounds are well maintained (even in winter) and the architecture of... More

Well appointed rooms. Friendly and energetic staff. Good tasty food; desserts were especially good. Picturesque grounds; just be careful around the monkeys. Our visit was for a work conference and there were very few complaints. This country manor would also be suitable for romantic getaways.

We used this place for a business meeting and it provided a very good setting. The original house has been added to with a number of purpose built blocks and the rooms are very good. In fact to call mine a room would be a major understatement - a huge double aspect bedroom looking out to the countryside, remarkably large... More
