Travellers' Choice
Built in 1898, and nestled in a lush English garden setting in the leafy suburb of Walmer, Hacklewood Hill is one of the few remaining Victorian Manor Houses in the city, and as such retains much of the elegance and grace it would have boasted when its first inhabitants – a young doctor and his family – once lived here. Guests are greeted with intricately stained glass doors, gleaming wooden floors and the gentle sheen of wooden banisters lovingly buffed and polished for more than a century. Wandering around the house’s two reception rooms, your eye naturally gravitates from one fascinating period piece to another. For a thoroughly enjoyable trip back to a time when days were long and unhurried, furnishings were beautiful and handmade, and every meal was an occasion to use only the best china and silverware, guests need look no further than Hacklewood Hill Country House.

My partner and I loved our short stay. Excellent, quiet venue, with the best food in the city. Rooms are deliciously decorated in an Edwardian colonial style, but comformtable. We were able to host some friends in the city for an excellent dinner. This added to our positive experience of the venue.

Lovely authentic Victorian house takes you back to a gentler more relaxed time. Have all the modern amenities needed for a very comfortable stay, including sufficient plugs for cellphone, laptop etc! I stayed in the Lady Elizabeth room, loved the decor, very comfortable bed, sitting area and balcony. Very nice bathroom, even small table to put vanity case on! Very good dinners and breakfast and excellent service and very friendly and helpful staff. Has become my preferred place to stay in PE from now on!

From a personal level me and my family will defnitely stay there in the future. It came highly recommended and it has been a great experience as it is like a home from home. From a business level it is great for small conferences as it is quiet and private.

Located in the nice suburb of Wallmer this Country House takes you back around 120 years when the first owners, a doctor and his family lived here. It feels like everything from bathroom fittings and furniture to cutlery is from these times and meticulously maintained to the highest standard. Service is fantastic and the food cannot get much better as it is also known as a restaurant which has won several awards in the fine dining category. If in Port Elizabeth you should definitely stay here.

The accommodation is well situated and a reminder of the high standard we once enjoyed in South Africa. The staff is exceptional and understand situational awareness - something you cannot really be taught. The food and wine offering are superb!
