Wonderful dance and dinner experience. Food was prepared with care and delectable. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Bed and linen assured a good night’s rest. And the quietness of the forest and mountain is the best setting for a relaxing mid week break. Staff were super friendly as always and this is truly home away from home. Looking forward to seeing you soon.

We just went for supper. It was really beautiful, the food was excellent as were the staff. It was very quiet, the gardens were lovely and the peacocks were stunning. I would highly recommend the hotel in every respect. There are two types of rooms, in the main house and others overlooking a lawned quadrangle. A must if visiting George

The most wonderful hotel stay i have experienced in a long time. This place has excellent written all over it. I’ve been to George South Africa over 12 times and so glad I found this hidden gem. From our arrival we were greeted by Tamhi. An excellent and well mannered young man who gave us a full tour of the hotel and the facilities. Not to mention his help throughout our stay in organising a golfing trip at kingswood to being on hand if we needed anything in the room. To the bar staff in the evenings the two young gentlemen were absolutely first class and took care of all our needs. The staff were amazing and some of the best I’ve come across. Breakfast, what can I say wow, so tasty and prepared to perfection. I’ve stayed in many places across George South Africa and I can assure you this is the first place I would check out when returning again. Thank you for having us and I look forward to returning again soon.

My experience at this hotel was incredible. The staff are so welcoming, sweet and professional. The rooms are so clean and so comfortable. The food was lovely and the set up of the hotel is so antique and so classy. I really recommend this hotel and give it a 5 star rating.

We four elderly gentlemen had an excellent lunch at The Hawthorn Boutique Hotel Restaurant. We are all well travelled in the Southern Cape, and for many years have had our monthly lunch at restaurants there. This place is rather special and is bound to be highly rated. It has only been open for a short time, but the ambience and service along with the cuisine make it stand out. George is lucky to have such an upmarket restaurant

What an absolutely amazing stay. Probably one of the best overnights we had. Congratulations on all staff that made us feel at home and gave their best efforts to make our experience one we will remember forever. From the fantastic dinner with chocolate and wine pairing to the barman that gave outstanding service. Rooms are comfortable clean and we had the forest view which enhances the tranquil atmosphere of this pristine boutique hotel. You will definitely be seeing us in future.

Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous! The hotel, the service, the food, the cocktails were all impeccable. Such a wonderful respite for me and my adult family ⭐️⭐️ And… a great place from which to head off, across the mountain passes, to see the environs.

Superior King Room - large and clean, everything new, perfect technology (2 USB, RSA and EU plugs, light in the toilet with motion detector. But no windows at all (just a glass door to the small balcony), open wardrobe with drawers as a closet, no pictures on the wall, ugly view of the outside area, poor sound insulation to the hallway and the next room (passage door not soundproof). Beautiful old garden with 20 peacocks. Next time I would take a garden suite with a view of the pool, but it wasn't visible as a category on booking.com. Very nice restaurant with open windows to the garden - excellent food with very friendly, professional service. The chef's instructions in the open kitchen, however, are a bit too loud...
