This was our third trip to De Hoek and the most important as it was the weekend of my engagement. The De Hoek team exceeded my expectations and created the most perfect and memorable stay. Well done!!

We had a wonderful stay at De Hoek. The rooms are beautiful and spacious, the service was excellent and the food out of this world! We will definitely be back. We attended the special New Years eve dinner that was a very special event - the champagne and laterns on the field was a great touch.

Spent two nights over new year .Lovely looking hotel and great food .Staff good but why do i have to ask for milk and sweetener to be replenished in my room.My tea cup in the room was also chipped and we had to wait 1 hour for toasted sandwiches for room service at 3 pm- whats the problem as the hotel was not busy.At breakfast had to request for napkins at our table .Staff also not sure as to what toasted sandwitches are available to order as we did not want a luncheon as we were having a 5 course dinner that evening which was excellant.These irritations are not what you would expect from a 5 star establishment.Did not see a duty manager to be greeted and this was disappointing and this showed with the irritations I experienced.

We stayed one night at De Hoek on new year's eve and had read such good reviews on TA. The venue itself is very beautiful - gorgeous gardens, lots of trees, birdlife, monkeys and baboons, and our suite was fabulous. We were so looking forward to a special dinner, but I have to say it was one of the worst meals we've ever had. My husband and I are "foodies" and at the very least had expected fresh ingredients and tasty courses, but were completely disappointed. All the food is just so incredibly bland, overcooked and unseasoned. Our starter was forgotten by the waiters and we had to ask what had happened to it. They told us they had given it to the wrong table so rushed to get ours out. It was soft-shell crab which was tasteless and too mushy. My main course of lamb was also tasteless and overdone and my husband's steak was "grey". We then requested the cheese and biscuits course and were given one piece of brie with some dried watermelon and no biscuits. We were really hoping breakfast would be better, as our experience overall of the place was good, but when you have high expectations of excellent food, since you are paying 5-star prices, it is a total let down of the whole experience away. Needless to say, breakfast was the same bland, tired fare and we will not be returning.

A really lekker weekend. Excellent food, beautiful tranquil gardens, and apart from a faulty aircon the room was stunning. Definitely a "do again" for spoily birthdays, anniversary and "just somer" breaks .... :-)

Room was lovely, staff was great, cuisine was outstanding. Very impressed by Michael seeking us out for a personal welcome. A fantastic place to go for a special occasion, unfortunately we only have one wedding anniversary per annum.

We stayed here for 1 night, on Christmas Day. The Christmas Dinner was amazing. The hotel itself very pleasant. Staff friendly. We did get lost finding the place, google maps address doesn't work, receptionist knows this and thought it was funny, wasn't actually! They need to address it. Entrance is well camouflaged. Would suggest they change the green paint to something that stands out more. Having the fan on in the room on a not so hot evening just made the room cold and the arrival even more chilly. Overall great place if you can find it....
