The sitting arrangement is so memorable because it's carefully selected for you though you have a choice to change it which I appreciated so much. The host kept on checking on us and the service was just perfect. The food is great and you get a different menu everyday which is very exciting because it guarantees you that you are... More

We stayed in Hunters Country House for two nights in cottage 14 called "Buttonwood" situated in a wonderful quiet part of the superb gardens. The room was fitted out beautifully with a comfortable bed and well fitted bathroom. The food was good and the staff very attentive. This hotel is situated on the delightful Garden Route and I would not... More

I can't praise this hotel enough. We stayed for 2 nights as part of our Garden Route trip. Wonderful grounds with thatched cottages (the rooms) scattered throughout plus a lovely pool area. Our cottage 'Buttonwood' was spacious with a comfortable bed, large bathroom with bath & separate shower, underfloor heating and a real log fire, which was lit when we... More

Impressive Hotel that certainly lives up to their standards. Staff are well trained, courteous and very friendly. An excellent break away for couples but just as amazing if you are on a business trip. The staff are ready to welcome you upon arrival with a smile and a drink. They take pride in introducing to you their facilities. Clean Victorian... More

We mostly enjoyed our stay at Hunter's Country House. The place is located very conveniently to get to all the local attractions we wanted to visit. It is close to the main freeway but is deep in the forest (about 1 km to the gate) and the territory is big and beautiful. The family house was nicely done (a bit... More

Thank you for the great feedback! In particular I liked the feedback about family dinners. We have a lot of families with small children and will definitely look at how we can make things less formal and more family friendly to accommodate the little ones! This kind of feedback helps us tremendously, thank you! More

Excellent hotel. Friendly service with attention to detail and special touches included hot water bottles in the bed at night, a roaring fire in the grate when we got into the room in the evening. Wonderful ambience set in forest with lovely lawns. Old world charm. The breakfast and dinner were exceptional. I can highly recommend this country lodge for... More
