Had a couple of excellent days at Hacklewood prior to moving on to Shamwari. (about 1.5 hrs by car max) Very friendly and helpful staff, nothing too much trouble. Excellent food from good choice am and pm in real country house surrounds. Bedroom (Lady Elizabeth 16) roomy with private balcony (great for bird spotting) and four poster bath !!!. Very welcoming, good cosmetics together with fruit, fudge and water. Situated in residential area but not ideal for strolling out.

We stayed overnight before taking a drive along the Garden Route. The room was comfortable and the evening meal and morning breakfast were both good. It was good value for money and in a good location to start from in the morning.
Would not want to stay any longer though.

From the minute we arrived the attention to details was impeccable. The rooms are quite superbly decorated, with all the original Victorian features still there. We decided to have our evening meal there and it was an excellent choice, As some other guest had not arrived, rather than put us in the dining room with the other couple there, our table was set up in the bay window of the drawing room with candles over looking the garden and swimming pool. The food was really excellent, as good as the local Michelin starred restaurant near by us at home.
This hotel is a gem.

The Hacklewood is located in a private house in a living area not too far from the PE airport. It is more a homestay than a standard hotel. It's a place with a very personal touch, totally different from a standard hotel.

In the afternoon you may sit in the garden near the pool, relax and have some fantastic toasted sandwich and tea. In the morning breakfast (freshly cooked, no kept-warm buffet) is taken at the balcony.

Security isn't an issue.

The room has been huge but a bit old-fashioned. There were fruits, cookies and caramels offered for free - but not even a little bottle of water. Personally I didn't like the wooden floor in the bathroom too much. The rest was fine, except that they forgot the turn-down service (which you can expect at 5 star rating).

Prices were arount € 150,00 for a huge room with an even bigger bathroom.

I would rate the Hacklewood 3 - 4 stars.

Brilliant in all resepcts. A small hotel, full of antiques and character but all mod cons including massive bathrooms and wonderful food. The staff are so helpful and nothing is too much trouble. If you are going to or from Shamwari it is perfect.
