Booking through bookings.com presented incredible value for this 5* hotel and travelling out of season, we almost had the whole property to ourselves. Bianca, Donald, Nick and their teams made us feel very welcome and we were so lucky to be upgraded to a deluxe pool suite, with a lovely lounge area with fire place, a huge bedroom and bathroom...

We had a really great time at Hunters Country House, where we spent about 1 week at the end of May 2016. The place is situated 10 minutes from Plettenberg Bay (west), just on the other side of the road where Knysna Elephant Park is. They have several free-standing cottages (small houses) around the main building, which are decorated in... More

This has to be the hotel that has exceeded all expectations. Set in the most beautiful grounds with wonderful shrubs, trees and flowers. Each room is an individual suite and the attention to detail is second to none. Everything to meet your needs, even a fire should you want one. A very spacious bathroom with a bath and separate walk... More

Our villa (number 25) was very well situated with its own private plunge pool. We recieved a very warm welcome and were shown around all the facilities on our arrival. We were lucky enough that the staff managed to arrange for us to eat Dinner in all three restaurants on site during our stay. One day we stayed by our... More

From the moment that we were shown into the lounge of this hotel we were impressed by the warm homely atmosphere. Our room was a small thatched cottage with canopy bed and well fitted out facilities. There were many thoughtful touches, such as a typed list showing where the other people in our party were staying and giving their phone... More

The hotel is in a beautiful setting; we stayed in luxurious, spacious cottages for our accommodation. The grounds are lovely and include a lovely little chapel, a tented lounge area and a small pool. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. I would highly recommend Hunters House and every aspect of the service provided.
