This is a five star get away. I would recommend it for couples. A lazy, relaxing open spacious surrounding. The rooms are spacious and bathrooms modern. the food is great. It is definitely not for the thrifty at heart.

I was really struck by how beautiful the place is. There's so much green - makes the place perfect for deep reflection and for calming the mind. The service was brilliant right through our stay - the staff are professional and very friendly. The highlight though was the food - so delicious. Every meal we had was delectable - it...

The location and the surrounds leant it itself to a lovely peaceful breakaway. The room was excellently furnished and comfortable. The staff were extremely friendly and went out of their way to satisfy. The dining experience was exceptional. What more can I say? A truly memorable experience and I will definitely be back!

My wife and I spent our wedding anniversary night at De Hoek and were impressed with the quality of service and the food there. Having both been there prior on conferences, we were quite familiar with their setup. The four course dinner meal was delicious and the service staff were unobtrusive yet attentive when required. We were there at the...

From the moment you cross the railway sleeper bridge and the facade of the stone structures greets you across the vast expanse of greenery, you know there's something special about this place. The rooms are eclectic, and the staff on top of their game, but the honors has to go to the restaurant. The food is amazing with exquisite dishes...

When we arrived there was just some dude nonchalantly waving his arms around. Apparently this meant the car park was full. We were left then to wander around to find reception that wasn't sign posted. The receptionist was very efficient but then no form of induction took place as we were taken to our room. We arrived after 230 and...

“If you prefer a more classic style ask for a room in the "older" part. If modern and chic does it for you, try the newer section.”
