We had a thoroughly revitalising mid-winter break at De Hoek in an atmosphere of luxury and relaxation. We would recommend De Hoek as a go to venue in the Magaliesberg and look forward to revisiting sometime soon.

A very good country hotel. Stayed with my wife and two teenagers.Our rooms were in the new quarter which we enjoyed as they are more modern than the existing ones. I can't fault the rooms except for a light that shone from outside our front door which went through right into the bedroom which made the room light at night.This... More

Team De Hoek know how to look after their customers. We experienced a flawless stay at a flawless venue! De Hoek's "par excellence" reputation is well deserved. One overnight stay at De Hoek feels like a weeks rest and relaxation. I highly recommended this venue.

A wonderful short overnight breakaway for us in a beautiful setting with tasty sumptuous food and a spacious well-equipped and comfortable room. Peaceful area to take a walk with a relaxing atmosphere.

All was well except the lack of hot water (needs serious improvement of supplier, especially in the cold periods); and I thought the manu offerings can do with improvements, although the presentation thereof was top notch.

We had a wonderful dinner; the food was very good. It was a set menu with a few options. The springbok loin, the haloumi/roasted artichoke salad and the chicken liver spaghettini were excellent. The venue is classic and romantic. The manager was very accommodating as we arrived without a booking but the servers were disappointing. There were many of them... More
