We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at De Hoek, from the impeccable rooms to the superb afternoon tea and tasty dinner. Take a stroll around the property, play a game of croquet on the lush lawns or just relax in one of the many peaceful rooms or verandahs.

We chose to stay a few days at de hoek to end our honeymoon. The experience was horrendous from the moment we arrived and it went from bad to worse. Firstly they did not have our confirmed booking when we arrived. We were happy to forgive that as they claimed email was down due to cable theft. However the next... More

We had a work function at De Hoek and had to spend the night. The staff was very friendly and professional. De Hoek is a beautiful place with sandstone buildings in a very relaxed setting. Staying there was really peaceful and it is an ideal place to just get away from city life. It is about 75 minutes drive from... More

Best pampered weekend in a very long time. Nothing was to small or big for the staff to handle even dealing with me in a wheelchair, a staff member fetch us every time. The food and accommodation is fabulous.

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
