A tranquil haven just outside bustling Plettenberg Bay. Good service, great food. The rooms are spacious with nice amenities. Beautiful manicured gardens, a lovely gazebo where you can laze away in the afternoon and places to walk between the trees. The whole experience is a bit old school but a lovely stay nonetheless.

Quiet, private, great gardens. 5 star ish. Air con was inadequate and rattled. Decor is a bit 1980s - but in keeping. Great dinner and wine. Chess and cards beforehand with our teenagers. Helpful staff. Even a packed lunch and cleaned our car before we set off. Location excellent for all that Plett has to offer.

Go if you want peaceful, beautiful surrounds, an amazingly well appointed thatch-roofed bungalow set privately in the grounds, brilliant staff, an awesome breakfast and dining experience in the evening. I could go on and on, but just go - I can't believe anyone could give Hunters anything less than 5 out of 5. We bumped into another couple on our...

After passing the entrance gate a short and narrow driveway opens into the most beautiful private garden I know. Several guest cottages of different size are situated on the grounds.(In walking distance also Tsala Lodge and Zinzi restaurant) Each cottage, standard or luxury, is surrounded by bushes and trees to create a maximum of privacy and tranquility.

A sublime setting! Beautiful, excellently maintained gardens surround this exquisitely furnished country house-type hotel. The lodge-type bedrooms were also excellently and sympathetically furnished and splendidly equipped. Log fires inside and out were an attractive and engaging feature. An outstanding aspect was the kindness and efficiency of the waiting staff. The dinners were a little long on presentation and a little...
