Spent 3 nights here as it was recommend to us as a special place and it did not disappoint! The rooms are lovely and a real treat to have our own open fire each night. My daughter loved the homemade biscuits and popcorn left each day. Food was excellent and very flexible with choices. Staff were lovely and very helpful... More

We had 2 amazing nights at Hog Hollow and just did not want to leave. Everything was perfect, the spotless room with spectacular views over the forest, amazing staff and we were basically lost for words when we arrived, given a glass of sparkling wine and just stood taking in the wonderful view. Have travelled extensively around the world but... More

Our stay at Hog Hollow was our final destination before travelling to Port Elizabeth to fly back to Johannesburg. We stayed for 3 days but would loved to have stayed longer if time allowed. All of the places we stayed at in South Africa were wonderful, but Hog Hollow was exceptional. The rooms are very large, with a separate lounge... More

Arrived to a warm welcome and drinks! How nice after a long day. Plenty of room in the rooms, lovely food with communal dining which we loved. Staff were really kind, amenities great. Further out from Plett Bay than I'd imagined but it turned out to be in our favour for areas we wanted to visit.

Fantastic location with stunning views over forest and mountains. Travelled as a family, 2 adults, 2 teenagers. From the moment we arrived we were blown away by this stunning place. Stayed in a villa or should I say palace! Villa was spotless. More than we could ever expect. Although we were initially concerned about the communal dining, we were pleasantly... More

Set in the middle of a forest ...complete with cheeky monkeys ..this is an ideal base for exploring a beutiful part of South Africa and getting up close to a wide range of animals in the nearby sanctuaries and reserves. Tranquil location and friendly service...alongside excellent food and a range of quality local wines. For people with mobility issues there... More

Beautiful scenery and relaxing environment. We had two days here before heading to a safari and it was the perfect spot to relax before a few busy days. The staff were superb and very helpful. Each room has its own view of the surrounding landscape.

We were really looking forward to our stay at Hog Hollow as part on our 2.5 week honeymoon as we had heard really great things and the hotel had come well recommended. However, when we arrived the receptionist informed us that they had no record of our booking (despite us having booked through a travel agent over 9 months ago... More

We apologize completely about your experience here, you should have had the very best time, not only because you were on holiday, but that it was such a special one. It was human error compounded by a computer glitch, of which you should not have had to have been worried about at all. We do hope that the rest of... More

Our room was large and beautifully done, overlooking the forested gorge. The communal living and dining area was comfortable with a glorious fire and lots of blankets. We enjoyed sitting by the fire, sipping our drinks and watching olympics, after a day of sight-seeing. There was a set menu for dinner but the food was fantastictic, both at breakfast and... More

Beautiful guesthouse with fantastic food (although a relatively limited choice of options), friendly staff with a relaxed atmosphere in beautiful surroundings. It is also only a short walk (approx. 15 mins) to a riding stables and the hotel are happy to help you organise a ride. If you are driving, it is a short drive to the elephant sanctuary, and...
