Our Collection

Unbeatable locations. Great value. Incredible memories. These are some of the things that our guests love about our handpicked properties and their exceptional staff. For us, nothing is more important than providing you, our guests, with once-in-a-lifetime stays and experiences.

Stellenbosch Accommodation

De Hoek Manor is situated directly opposite the 'Moederkerk' ('Mother Church') in the historic centre of Stellenbosch, so you simply can't wish for a more perfect place to stay if you want to explore Stellenbosch's local hangouts - wine tasting venues, bistros, bars, restaurants, and university campus - by foot. Stellenbosch Wine Routes and the Stellenbosch Information office are directly next door.

Hermanus Accommodation

Be captivated by stunning ocean views as you do whale watching from the comfort of your bed, veranda, or, yes, even your bathroom. Hermanus Beachfront Lodge offers exquisite views over the warm Indian Ocean with only a meandering footpath separating this exclusive villa from the rolling beach breakers below. Wine estates and golf courses are in close proximity, ensuring a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

"Absolutely amazing! Located centrally but in a very quiet street, this gem of a hotel exceeds expectations: very friendly staff, great cleanliness and amenities in the room, a very nice breakfast... Hope to come back very soon!"

De Hoek Manor Review

Visit Historic Stellenbosch

De Hoek Manor is located in the centre of the historic Stellenbosch, walking distance from popular restaurants, wine tasting boutiques and bistros. Visit Stellenbosch, our local tourism information centre, is literally next door, and your first wine tasting destination. Just tell your Uber driver to drop you off opposite the 'Moeder Kerk', South Africa's second oldest church.

Escape to Hermanus

Hermanus is a quaint village just over an hour's drive from Cape Town and is considered by many as the land-based whale watching capital of the world. Other attractions include horse riding on the beach, long walks on the pristine Blue Flag Certified Grotto Beach or Voëlklip Beach, golf and wine tours, not to mention the many restaurants and coffee shops. If you are the more adventurous type of traveller, you may want to go paragliding or shark-cage diving in nearby Gansbaai.

Superb Locations

Spend your holidays and business trips in hand-picked accommodation establishments with superb locations so that you can enjoy authentic South African experiences right from your doorstep. Our Stellenbosch and Hermanus properties are all within easy walking distance of popular attractions, making you less dependent transport and giving you more time to do the things you love.
