Hunter's Country House

Feefo logo


The original thatched homestead is set among beautiful gardens against the backdrop of the Tsitsikamma Mountains, offering a peaceful and tranquil retreat. Hunter's Country House provides exceptional service and attention to detail. Relax in the homely atmosphere of the antique furnished lounge or outside by the swimming pool. Stroll through the estate's private forest and enjoy the sights and songs of the plentiful birds.

Five golf courses are within easy access of the estate, while the golden beaches of Plettenberg Bay lie just 10 minutes away. Hunter's Country House welcomes children of all ages and has a recreation area, including a shallow swimming pool, games room and thatch-covered sandpit, especially for them.

This is a welcome stop on the ever-popular Garden Route, especially if you and your family are undertaking a self-drive vacation from Cape Town.

Traveller Reviews

Hunter's Country House

Amanda Lopez

"Hunter in Garden Route, is just perfect! Even being away, it was worth staying enjoying the hotel in our free time. I think I never had such a wonderful breakfast. The Zinzi restaurant was the best we went in whole trip"

Laurel Sherman

On to Hunter's Country House in Plett. I thought I was back in the Cotswold region of England and that is all good! It is a beautiful spot and our room was exquisite; I didn't realize at first that it was not a standard, but rather a premium accommodation. There were very few guests when we were there. Their breakfast was quite under whelming and Storms River which was memorable. We have visited many, many of our own national parks here in the USA and have always enjoyed the experience. Additionally we went to which surprised me. Roxy in the front office was amazing! We walked to all their other properties knowing that Rosalie and Milt had stayed at Tsala; we popped into Zinzi's and looked at their menu and decided to eat dinner there our second night. Actually, we preferred the food as well as the ambiance there; the dining room at Hunter's is a little too formal and a bit pretentious. Having all three options in one place is terrific; they are three stunning venues. From there we spent the better part of one day in Tsitsikama, Buffels Bay, a wonderful beach, and Monkeyland. I thought the latter would be very touristy but I was wrong; both Ray and I loved it and found it to be very informative. The people at Hunter's recommended Old Nicks, a lovely little shopping area with terrific merchandise. Unfortunately, Ray is not very patient when it comes to shopping!

"We really loved Hunters Country House in Plettenberg Bay, it was really amazing and service was excellent. We both agreed that it was the best place we stayed in our whole trip!"

Wayne Jacobs

"Our night at Hunters was superb, although quite short."

Wanda Porteous

"Though the atmosphere here was considerably more formal (especially for dinner in the evening), the staff was very considerate and accommodating. They had upgraded the boys to a cottage like our own and they were very beautiful indeed."
