Hawklee Country House
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 March 2017

We went to Hawklee for our anniversary weekend and WOW, from the moment we stepped onto the property, we were welcomed by the owners (Dean and Belinda) and made to feel like family and completely at home.
The food was fantastic, well presented, tasty and a very nice balanced selection of choices.
The rooms are well appointed, spacious and all have very nice views over the babbling Lions River running a few meters away. Makes for a soothing and relaxing experience througout the resort.
A big heatfilled THANK YOU to Dean & Belinda and their dedicated team for making our weekend even more special.

I would HIGHLY recommend this resort as it is a short drive from the Midlands Meander but not too far.

Room Tip: Dont procrastinate - Choose Hawklee, You will not be dissappointed

Best Midlands trip thus far, excellent welcome by the Hosts, made us feel at home from the very first minute. The very best in Midlands. The meals were superb and the sound of the river is the most calming ever.

We stayed a weekend at Hawklee. The place is definitely in need of some TLC. Chairs in the room felt like the springs were going to come thru and do some rear end damage, plastic basin with loose taps, basically very ordinary. We didnt eat, there was some kid running loose in the dining room so decided to breakfast elsewhere. Unfortunate as the area and setting is very peaceful and was what we were after but really - the bath in the rooms gotta go! Very 80's and not really an attraction.

Good day Sacit

Thank you for sharing your input with us. I see from all your previous comments of places you have frequented that you demand a very high standard. We apologies if you had some discomfort while sitting and encourage all guests to share immediately with us so we can change chairs for you. You came in on a reduced special of 50% and booked Room only and NO breakfast. Had we known you would of liked breakfast we would of accommodated you immediately. Hawklee is a family destination as well and apologies if there was a toddler running around a bit, but we do attempt to accommodate all families and would of assisted you in eating on our lovely deck away from any noise if you had asked. We are a 3 star establishment and perhaps you had required a 5 Star but then of course would of paid far more for the room. We trust we have addressed your points and thank you once again for raising them. Regards The Hawklee Team

We very much enjoyed the peaceful surroundings of the Guest House, with the stream running by and an agreeable garden through which to walk. The room was fine, the food good and Dean and Belinda were especially helpful when assisting us try and resolve a problem on our forward journey which cropped up unexpectedly. Thank you for an excellent stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The country house is beautifully positioned on the Lions River and you go to sleep to the fabulous sound of the river. We stayed in a lovely room with a deck and spa bath. The breakfast was great and the hosts lovely. We will be back.

Good day Patrick
Thank you for spending your breakaway at Hawklee country House. The river is really pumping now after the rain so the sound is like a roar and just lulls one into a peaceful atmosphere. Dean and I hope we will see you at Hawklee in the future
