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

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

We enjoyed our stay at Hunter's Country House. The grounds are spectacular, and the staff is outstanding. We loved the wonderful breakfast in the garden room. Our room was large, and it had a fireplace, however the room was a bit worn. The thatched roof is charming, but there was an odd smell from that type of roof. However, the... More

We stayed two nights here as part of the Garden Route journey. You get a detached mini cottage to stay in. The room was fine but nothing special. In keeping with the "colonial" style of the rest of the place. To me in my 30's, its dated and not in a charming rustic way, more of a heritage museum esq.... More
