Nice pub, good food. Hoedspruit is a pretty sleepy town so Sleepers offers some entertainment. Worth a visit.

In a sleepy town where service is never a priority, Sleepers Restaurant has a genuinely relaxed and friendly atmosphere. They serve the best Margarita cocktail and Ceasar Salad in SA, with a fabulous selection of food choices for the whole family.

Nothing spectacular, food is ok however service can be improved, with a little bit of work and management onsight, Sleepers does have potential

I ate here almost every day for several months while I was staying in Hoedspruit. I loved their deck and they had free Wifi. Their breakfast is great, I loved their PeriPeri Chicken, they have good burgers, salads and cold beer. In the winter they have a fireplace inside which is nice on a chilly morning for breakfast. The car... More

Food was great, service was on par & an added bonus of historical value of the old railway station inside.

I love this restaurant for its quiet atmosphere and it caters for working people with plug points for computers. Food is always of a excellent quality. I spend many hours here so do not mind the wait for food but possibly they could speed up service.

This restaurant is really great and has a wonderful atmosphere to it. Lots of menu choices and the breakfasts are particularly good. I love the huge tree in the middle of the restaurant and the feeling you get at this restaurant is just "time to relax".

Really enjoyed our meal here. Great variety and everyone found something to enjoy. The only problem which is everywhere in SA is finding a true non- smoking area.

Love the outside sitting area under the trees. Extensive menu with some interesting combinations. Very good service on the first night but staff were very slow on the second night. Food was well presented and very tasty. Good value for money.
