Hunters Rest is an old hotel where you get the feeling that you have set your clock backwards to the 70's-80's. The hotel suites have been renovated and the suites are very elegant and spacious. There is a lot of entertainment for the kids to do and even a pony ride or put put can be much fun. The mushy golf course is well looked after and the tennis courts are in excellent condition. The swimming pool is huge and there is a cold and warm pool to choose from. The hotel caters for a large number of guests and because of that the food is mediocre. You can choose either Buffet or menu. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Considering everything I think it is worthwhile to try for a weekend break away.
