Excellent hotel. Friendly service with attention to detail and special touches included hot water bottles in the bed at night, a roaring fire in the grate when we got into the room in the evening. Wonderful ambience set in forest with lovely lawns. Old world charm. The breakfast and dinner were exceptional. I can highly recommend this country lodge for... More

We enjoyed our stay at Hunter's Country House. The grounds are spectacular, and the staff is outstanding. We loved the wonderful breakfast in the garden room. Our room was large, and it had a fireplace, however the room was a bit worn. The thatched roof is charming, but there was an odd smell from that type of roof. However, the... More

We stayed two nights here as part of the Garden Route journey. You get a detached mini cottage to stay in. The room was fine but nothing special. In keeping with the "colonial" style of the rest of the place. To me in my 30's, its dated and not in a charming rustic way, more of a heritage museum esq.... More

We loved Hunters. Old fashioned polite and professional service. Our room was a thatched beaned cottage. It was stunningly beautiful. We watched baboons cross the lawn in the morning. The pool was lovely, the Stars were bright . It was quiet and restful. The welcome tray of wine and cheeses was a nice touch. The communal rooms were so homely.... More

Beautiful location and a dream place to stay. We stayed in a lodge with our own private garden and pool. The quality of the establishment is first class. The staff and food were brilliant. There are two other restaurants on the complex. We tried one of them (not the tree house one) and the food ( and wine) were excellent.... More
