I found that due to the lack of signage it is quite complicated to find ones way around. Unfortunately the day that I was there the road to the beach was closed due to military maneuvers taking place. There are beautiful walks with incredible views. I wish that I had time to go to the Spa as the pool looked...

Lovely cottage, very clean, good assorted, nice welcome with the table ready for a big dinner. Very quiet place, good sleep, good kitchen and the restaurant a 5 minutes walk away. Lot of animals and birds around the house (Bontebok, Eland, Ostrich), beware of the baboons - never leave anything unattended outside or leave door and windows open...

Over the past seven years we have visited de Hoop frequently because of its beautiful nature reserve and stunning coast line. De Hoop Collection has always been overprized and offered no value for money: cottages and bathrooms are very basic and tiny, meals expensive and of low quality. After overcoming the usual obstacles to make a booking (it takes days...

Dear Kristin D, Thank you for visiting and the feedback. Whilst we welcome constructive feedback, it would appear that you had an attitude during your visit and I feel some of your comments are not fair.

De Hoop is a difficult place to describe, it is quite unique. A small complex of cottages, suites, rondewals and a camp site set in a National Park with amazing wildlife all around you, literally grazing in your garden! We had a young eagle owl perched in a tree overlooking our braii for 2 days, just an incredible sight. It...

We stayed for a night in the opstal vlei cottage, there are 3 cottages next to eachother but giving good privacy..

Excellent destination. Dassie Suite is very private with lovely views over the lake. Had 2 excellent evening meals and loads to do during the day. Lots of animals to enjoy. Top African experience not to be missed, even if it is a bit of a mission to get there.

We stayed in the Vlei Suite for four nights in January this year. The suite is huge and has wonderful views over the Vlei. We stayed on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis and found all the food to be lovely. Staff were also excellent although I have to mention Dickson who I felt was particularly good with his very...

De Hoop Collection Nature Reserve is a very beautiful and interesting place to be. There are a lot of flowers in spring. And a lot of different animals. Beautiful dunes too... and the only thing you have to do to see whales in the season (September - November) is to sit on the top of a dune and wait and...

Four friends shared the Melkkamer Manor House of the De Hoop Collection in October 2016. We had previously been to South Africa and our South African travel agent suggested De Hoop as a different experience for us. IT WAS GREAT!!! The manor house was a beautiful old home, done up in comfortable period style. It was a little cool at...
