Hacklewood Hill is an intimate and luxurious country house that offers five star accommodation in Port Elizabeth.
Hacklewood Hill Country House is situated in the old part of Walmer, one of the upmarket suburbs of Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa. This five-star hotel is in itself a heritage site, as it was already built in 1898 and is one of only a handful Victorian Manor Houses still left in Port Elizabeth. The Victorian style continues throughout the house, taking guests back to a time of grandeur and splendor, when it was home to a doctor and his family during the last couple of years of the nineteenth century.
There are eight elegant individually decorated rooms to choose from. Every room is unique and painted in different pastel colors. All the rooms are spacious and elegant, with large en suite bathrooms. The bathrooms offer freestanding ball-and-claw bathtubs, separate showers and heated towel rails, making it the perfect place to relax. The opulent rooms have modern amenities such as air conditioning, WiFi, tea and coffee stations, safes, satellite televisions, hairdryers and mini bars.
If guests truly want to feel like Victorian royalty, they should dine at the resident Hacklewood Restaurant. Superbly trained waiters serve the highest quality of fine dining cuisine. Generous portions, made with only the freshest ingredients, have made this restaurant the recipient of nine American Express Fine Dining Awards. Not only does the Hacklewood restaurant serve a splendid variety of cordon bleu dishes for dinner, but light lunches, high teas and full English breakfasts can also be enjoyed in this fine establishment. An extensive selection of wine is available from the Hacklewood wine cellar.
The lush garden offers a glistening pool - an excellent avenue to refresh and cool down in the summertime. The location is such that almost all of the attractions in Port Elizabeth can be reached within ten minutes by car, while the airport is only five minutes away. Hacklewood Hill Country House is also able to arrange game drives for guests at the nearby Pumba Private Game Reserve and Spa.
