We stayed at Hog Hollow for 2 nights on our way to Port Elizabeth - we would happily have stayed a 3rd night! It's a beautiful hotel, the location is great, the room was a lot bigger that I thought, with a sofa area and a big bathroom. There were fresh cookies and pop corn waiting for us in the room with the tea/coffee facilities.
We had dinner there on both nights as the hotel is quite far away from any town/village and the night was falling early. Both dinners were very good, though I thought the first dinner was more refined and nicely presented than the second one. We had dinner at the communal table on both nights and it was lovely. We had a picnic on the 2nd day, as we went for a hike in the nearby forest/beach (beautiful hike !): the picnic was really nice, with fresh salads, savoury tarts, cheese and crackers, plenty of fruits in a beautiful (albeit not very practical!) picnic basket. Breakfast were really nice too.
The staff was great, very friendly and helpful, especially when we inquired about a possible hike in the area, or for an extra blanket as the nights were a bit cold.
Dinners were on the expensive side for South Africa, and breakfast (which was not included into our rate) was the usual cost for a hot/cold buffet and hot breakfast menu option. However, the staff was not very upfront about prices (we did not know how much breakfast was until we got our bill as it was unclear to us if it was / was not included in our rate) and what was / was not included (e.g. the pre-dinner drinks, which are extra).
I would definitely go back to Hog Hollow if I have the occasion!
