Description

The De Hoop Collection offers accommodation ranging from camping to more luxurious options set in the magnificent surrounds of the De Hoop Nature Reserve. Few other reserves offer as complete an outdoor experience as De Hoop, with sea, sand dunes, the vlei, a floral sensation of rare fynbos plants, diverse antelope and the Potberg Mountains.

Birdwatchers spend time along the shores of the vlei observing wading birds, while the Potberg Mountains are home to a colony of endangered Cape vultures. Hikers and cyclists have close encounters with bontebok, the Cape mountain zebra, eland, red hartebeest and baboons. Activities are diverse and guests can choose between various day walks, the Whale trail, mountain biking along the many gravel roads, horse riding and scenic game drives. Lazing on the beach and snorkelling in the many turquoise rock pools are great ways to pass the days.

De Hoop offers a holiday experience for any type of traveller, from the backpacker to the guest preferring the finer things in life. A truly memorable getaway awaits.

Wedding Venues: The Stables which is located in the Melkkamer area overlooking the vlei, is an old, sandstone, farm barn that has been completely renovated and has been transformed into a unique venue for weddings and other special events.

Conference Venues: A fully equipped conferencing facility is set in the stately old Opstal Manor House and will have room for a maximum of 30 attendees. The conference attendees can be accommodated in any of the accommodation options available at De Hoop.

The fact that the camping rondavels had no inside toilets.  The outside toilets were really not very nice, the ones that were slightly better at the ablution block were really far away, especially at night, the shower facilities as well, more than basic. For the price it was definitely not good value.  Definitely not priced for the South African market, maybe there should be two price structures, one for the overseas market and one for the South African market.  I would also not recommend it for families.

15 March 2014

We booked a vlei cottage but when we arrived were told that there had been a mix up and we were put into a village cottage instead with free breakfast. As birdwatchers, we particularly booked the vlei cottage and would not have booked in the village so free breakfasts were not really compensation. I spoke to the booking clerk who said she had emailed me the previous day but the only email I received was on the morning of our arrival. Eventually we were offered free dinner as well and the posibility of moving into the manor house for our second night but as the water was cut off in most of the complex while we were there but remained on in the village cottage we were in, we stayed put. The cottage was well furnished and very pleasant but very close to the road and we were woken by traffic at 5am both mornings. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful. The restaurant served good though not outstanding food and we thought the choice [only 2 options for each course] rather limited. The place itself is beautiful but as a couple slightly expensive.

First class stay and meals, very clean and excellent guide Pinky. Lots to see like whales, eland bontebok, birds and other fauna and flora.

22 April 2013

I really enjoyed unwinding at De Hoop. The scenery was wonderful and everything was peaceful. Staff at the restaurant were very friendly and helpful. As a single traveller I really enjoyed my time there.

14 January 2013

We really enjoyed every moment of our stay. The accommodation was beautiful, clean and fresh. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful. Location was absolutely breathtaking. Restaurant food was delicious. Highly recommended.
