Description: The Main Conservatory at De Hoek Country Hotel offers peace and tranquility in a lovely setting, so any pastime is quiet and slow. Luncheon on a Sunday in the magnificent gardens has fast become a very popular arrangement and bookings are essential. Wonderful packages are available to stimulate a group of guests or company whilst here. Archery, croquet and walks are available on the property. A helipad provides for the countless fly in arrival and departure by guests, whether it is for business or pleasure. Any type of activity can be arranged for team building and motivation. Wine and whiskey tastings and food pairings are very popular, with Winemakers of fabulous wine estates visiting personally to promote and sell their latest offerings to interested guests on special occasions. This is the ideal venue for birthdays, functions, exclusive weddings, conferences and retirement parties.

“Most exquisite country restaurant and wedding venue”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

De Hoek is the best kept secret in Magaliesburg. We were very blessed to have our wedding there on the 5th October. It was perfect in every way..... the owners are fantastic. The food is off the chart delicious - we invited our guests for "an exquisite luncheon experience" and it was nothing short of that! The food and wine pairing was brilliantly done. The owner believes that people need to show one another more kindness - and the staff understand this and practice it all the time. The service is phenomenal. The accommodation is pristine - a real spoil for a special celebration. The gardens are beautifully manicured, and everything is neat and tidy. The attention to detail is amazing. De Hoek was a dream wedding venue. It is a perfect weekend get away destination, or even for just a sunday lunch away from the city. You won't be disappointed!

“A BEAUTIFUL SETTING”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

We booked for the recent Restaurant week which took place and decided to do the trek all the way from Pretoria to the Magaliesburg and what a great idea! The setting of the establishment is just perfect and we saw that they are now extending the estate as well with more rooms/ apartments. The food was really superb from the starters to the desserts. The service went for a bit of a nose dive when our mains were served but we raised this and it was corrected very quickly. Next time we will do our planning around an overnight stay!
