Stayed in the family suite for 3 wonderful nights. Absolutely beautiful setting, great attentive service and incredibly child-friendly staff. Nothing was too much trouble and we were never made to feel that they were anything other than valued guests! The food was excellent (we especially enjoyed the lavish breakfasts) and the rooms comfortable and well appointed. We made the most...

We spent precious time with my Girl at Hunters Country House. The establishment has so much to offer and we visited mid December and the greenery was on its peak. The trees, grass and the flower gardens were full of life which meant more great pictures for us. It is a great place for people who want to get away...

We remember this restaurant fondly, it being a very upmarket place all those years ago. The staff are clearly well trained and the service immaculate, but what once was crystal glassware is now plain, the dress code has gone, the menu far reduced. Having said that, a cosy enjoyable evening was had, and the bill surprisingly light for the quality...

This hotel was selected by the Tour company and the choice was excellent. If we were returning to the area we would not hesitate to stay again. We thought the grounds were amazing even though the weather wasn't good enough to take full advantage of the pool area. Rooms, decor, food and service were all of a high standard. Our...

This place was very cute and the food was excellent. Pool area was lovely and there was a lovely open air section for pre-dinner drinks. Breakfast each morning was excellent too.

We popped by for breakfast and had the best Eggs Benedict in Plett hands down! Very fresh continental spread as well as a delightful hot breakfast selection. I was also surprised at how reasonable the final bill was. Call ahead to book for breakfasts during busy periods.

We had a great stay in the Hunters guest house which has a convenient location close to Plett and Knysna. Service was excellent and very professional. Loved the outdoor lounge and pool area. Breakfast room is beautiful too. Eggs Benedict nicely prepared.
