The food as way beyong a 5 star. I only enjoyed the food on day one. On the last the fish provided for lunch was rotten. Richard and Palesa where the best employees ever. They were very friendly and attend to you with a smile on their faces. They deserve to be recognised

Went for our first wedding anniversary. The staff were amazing. SO accommodating, took bags from the car up to the room, didn't feel like going down for wine tasting so they brought it up to us, ran a candle lit, rose petal bath for us after dinner, put truffles out on our bed, were incredibly personable and friendly.

I throughly enjoyed the tranquility that De Hoek had to offer on our weekend away. Nestled in a quite estate away from the road and activity - De Hoek was peaceful and serene. The room was well appointed with sophisticated and beautiful furnishings. The decor and style of the bathroom was equally beautiful. The staff were all too accommodating and...

Fantastic venue to rest and relax. We loved the dinners in the evening and to sit and eat on the verandah is something magical. The staff all out done themselves with their 5 star attention to detail and add to the magic of De Hoek.

Super place. The kitchen service was a concern but hopefully this is now sorted out with the appointment of a head chef. We enjoyed the peace and tranquility. We look forward to a further visit. Kind regards.
