De Hoek Country House

Gauteng, South Africa

De Hoek Country House

De Hoek is an up-market country retreat situated in peaceful Magaliesburg, about one hour from Johannesburg.

De Hoek Country Hotel is a 5-star retreat in Magaliesburg. One of the best hotels in the region, it occupies a secluded location in a valley, nestled amid indigenous bush as part of a sprawling farming community. The hotel has won numerous awards for its stylish guest rooms and gourmet restaurant.

The house was built in the early 90s, but it has the appearance of, and is clearly intended to resemble, an old Cape homestead. Like any hotel of this sort, there's an air of artificiality to De Hoek, and some won't like the overly formal presentation and slightly stiff atmosphere. But as far as luxury retreats go, it's one of South Africa's best small hotels. Located one hour from Johannesburg, De Hoek receives a large number of business clients.


There are 32 rooms spread across multiple wings. All of the rooms are spacious and equipped with the expected modern amenities – under-floor heating, satellite television, air-con. Private balconies overlook the lawn and garden.


De Hoek offers an award-winning menu. Lunch and dinner are 5-course affairs, usually served in the dining room or, on warm evenings, outside on the lawn. There is a well-stocked wine cellar.
