“Amazing :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Thank you to Hawklee House for such an amazing stay. Beautiful surroundings and amazing hospitality, Hawklee House definitely made our 3 year anniversary that much more special. Both myself and Tyrone will be staying at Hawklee House again in the future and will most definitely recommend it to others. Thank you :)

Regards Monique and Tyrone

Awesomeness is an apt description! From the location, facilities, friendliness, quality, room, bedding to the extra small touches, one cannot ask for better. Thank you, a pity we couldn't stay longer!

Our stay was very enjoyable and the service was excellent. The staff were very friendly. The property was lovely, down by the river was the best with the large trees and the abundance of bird life, will come back to see it again. Thanks

An annual trip with friends for Christmas in July was absolutely fantastic and certainly a memorable one. Great hosts, comfortable accommodation, good service and tasty food. The main lounge area and bar are a great place to meet and talk about the days activities and the dinning room really nice with views over the garden, deck area and river. The Midlands Meander area is certainly worth a visit with many attractions to get out and see. Hawklee is also an ideal retreat for a quiet weekend away from it all.

Room Tip: The rooms are all individual cottage style with shower and spa bath, as well all the general comfort...

Accommodation was good and hospitality awesome. Went up in winter and a lovely view of the Lion River outside the balcony of the our little cottage. Very very nice to cuddle up with your partner and view the scenery.

You have to travel over about 2-3km of gravel road to get to it however worth the drive.

Room Tip: The Guinea fowl room for couples which also has a jacuzzi

My girlfriend and I had an enchanting time at Hawklee Country House with warm hospitality and excellent service from hosts Belinda and Dean.
What a magical little retreat situated in the Midlands.The food was delicious and we had a lovely romantic dinner in the cosy restaurant that overlooks a beautiful garden and bubbling brook that is home to pair of otters and a variety of birds and wild life.
We will certainly be back and wish the team at Hawklee House much success in the future.

Best wishes Drew and Angelica.
