“We have previously stayed here 2 years ago and chose to stay again very last minute on an urgent trip to the Kirkwood area. We booked at 5.00pm and arrived at 7.00pm and was warmly greeted at the front reception and shown to our room. Which was large clean and had everything we needed, even when my husband messed up the safe instructions the front desk staff member came to our room to fix it even though it was late. The log fire burning in the reception is always a wonderful welcome and the breakfast by the fire in the morning is wonderful. Even the lovely workers who were cleaning the windows of our car as we came out in the morning after a cold chilly night in the area was a lovely touch. Highly recommend this property.” – Tara TripAdvisor.
“Even if we arrived late evening, we were welcomed kindly and got an amazing three-course menu served! So if you think about staying in Hopefield, definitely book yourself in for the dinner! The huge room and bathroom is well equipped and clean! The entire property is very tidy and you have a nice view of the pool area and the nature! The accommodation is just around 10km from the Addo Elephant Park, so it’s the perfect location for a day trip to the park!” – Roam TripAdvisor.
