My tour of South Africa has offered good quality accommodation but “Hunters Country House” is at another level. Personal space/privacy is not normally a high priority of hotels but Hunters Country House gives you space in abundance. Individual/detached accommodation that is spacious, clean and very inviting. Your own outdoor space for sunbathing etc. The Gardens are big and beautifully kept... More

We stayed for two nights in a lovely garden suite, a fantastic little cottage in the middle of a botanic garden. Everything from the arrival until departure was excellent. We enjoyed a nice dinner in the restaurant in a small room with 4 tables, very romantic old farmer house style room, just lovely. We will for sure come back to... More

The Hunters Country house restaurant is situated in the beautiful historic building of the hotel. We stayed at the Tsala Treetop lodge but this restaurant and hotel is on the same grounds as well as Zinzi restaurant. Upon arrival we were asked if we wanted a pre-dinner drink in the lounge or sitting room of this beautiful place. The sitting... More

It was at this point that my wife daughter and I were informed that we had been upgraded and shown to our... More

We were staying at Tsala Treetops and booked at the Country House which is part of the same group and in the same grounds. We were put in a private room as there was a large party of people in the restaurant and what a treat that was. We had a romantic and delicious dinner in a very old fashioned... More

Initially my fiancé and I wanted to get married in Mauritius with our closest family & friends. I never thought I would find a venue in SA that could compare to an island escape. We stumbled across Zinzi's Restaurant during our Easter vacation in Plett in 2013. The food at Zinzi's had us all speechless. We returned for supper the... More

Wonderful warm staff, food was delectable, villa was amazing, decor fabulous. We had a truly amazing romantic time in the country house, perfect for honeymoons or family holidays. We had 2 amazing meals there, one in Tsala and the other in zinzi. We will definitely be back.

This was our third stay at hunters and the rooms and grounds did not disappoint.however the fine dining that used to be part of the hotel no longer is. There is a light dinner option which is a restricted menus and the dining venue is at their zinzini restaurant. However this may be taken over for a private function or... More
