We had a wonderful stay here in a family room (the children were close enough but not too close!) with its own terrace where we saw monkeys and other wildlife. The gardens are beautiful and the thatched cottages are spaced apart so everyone gets some privacy. The main restaurant was rather formal, but we especially loved Zinzi where we also went with the children (aged 4 & 1). There is a lovely area for children to enjoy with toys, ride on cars, sandpit, jungle gym etc which made for two happy campers. The pool area was beautiful, the gardens relaxed and i really enjoyed your divine 7am yoga classes Thank you from us all.

We stayed for two nights in this incredible hotel near Plettenberg. The gardens are incredible and there are thatched cottages dotted around the grounds enabling each to have privacy. The food was delicious and the staff very helpful. Had a good trip to the elephant park at the end of the road. Had some good walks around the amazing grounds and then relaxed by the pool. Thank you

As other reviewers have mentioned before, Hunters Country House is a tranquil and wonderfully located hotel between Knysna and Plettenberg Bay. We had several dinners at Zinzi Restaurant which is located on the same grounds. We are writing this review because a few weeks ago - on our way back from Zinzi to Knysna - we got into riots on the N2 and were attacked by a group of people. The car was damaged and my wife was severely injured. We returned to Zinzi and asked for help - the managers of Tzsala Treetop and Hunters Lodge went out of their way to accommodate us for the night (with no charge), provided first aid, and helped arranging a new rental car. We rarely before experienced such outstanding hospitality and were more than grateful for the assistance they offered. We highly recommend Hunters Country House, their management and staff.

We spent 3 nights here while travelling on the Garden Route. At first we thought that it might be too far out of Plettenberg Bay but it turned out to be closer than we though and it was great to return to the peace and quiet of the countryside. The hotel grounds are really well kept and provided space to take some nice walks.We stayed in room 31 which was lovely but next door to a staff area so occasionally we heard noise. If returning we would choose a room further from the main building. The staff were all friendly and helpful and the whole place made you feel relaxed. There were plenty of places to sit, our favourite being the summer room which had beautiful furniture. We ate dinner here twice but the menu doesn't change which makes choice a bit limited. It was a nice touch when they provided a little bag with water and cookies when you were leaving. Overall we enjoyed our stay.
