This is one of the best hotels I've stayed in, and coming from someone who stays in many hotels... this accolade is well-deserved.
I only have one small complaint, and it's due to a technicality in communication with reception staff. I booked a room with twin beds, as I was travelling with my mother. When i checked in, the room allocated to us had one large bed. Turns out you can't just say 'twin beds'... according to the receptionist (Candie, I think) you have to specifically ask for the twin beds to be 'split' (all the 'double' beds have twin bed bases and can be split out). So if you want 2 beds, you can't just say 'give me twin beds' - you have to say 'split the twin beds out'. Ridiculous, i know. I was also informed by her that the reason they hadn't seen my 'special' request in the first place was because i added it to a comments section that they 'don't normally check'. There you have it.
Other than that issue (which was very quickly and efficiently sorted out by Brenda, the duty manager), I have to say that I really enjoyed my stay. The staff in this hotel are lovely and will go above and beyond to make sure you enjoy your stay - their service is amazing. The room was fantastic, and the location is perfect. It's pricey, but it's worth every cent.

We read some excellent reviews before choosing Hitgeheim, and they were all justified! Archie has created a little piece of heaven in these 8 thatched-roof chalets, cozy lounge with fireplace, decks and restaurant. We loved everything about our chalet.....private deck overlooking the river valley, sitting room, comfy bed, open shower. The food was uniformly delicious and beautifully presented. What really makes Hitgeheim special though, is its staff. Everyone was wonderful, and we are especially grateful to Donald & Michael for taking such good care of us; to Peter for a fabulous and informative tour of Addo Elephant Park, and to Archie for arranging our tour days in CapeTown with his son, Martin (who is a chip off the old block!). Archie also arranged our game drives at Schotia and at Amakahla. If you are going anywhere near Port Elizabeth, this is THE place to stay!!

Excellent self catering appartments close to centre and the cricket ground.
Genuine appartment with generous lounge kitchen area, bedroom and small study area.
I stayed on a first floor flat at the rear for one night and on a third floor at the front for a return visit. Get the lower levels at the back if you can - flat at front was very hot and suffered from traffic and Saturday night drunk noise problems.

We can't say enough about the marvelous time we had. The food was beyond wonderful, game drives magnificent, hospitality could not have been better or more welcoming. Our Ranger Ruan was well educated and informative. For anyone with children they have a children's program that sets the parents free to enjoy the game drives and other times while they are entertained with their own staff. We are grandparents and had no children with us, but we were impressed about what we saw. We happen to be there for Valentines Day and things were nicely decorated for the holiday, each dinner had animal folded napkins, etc.

What a magical place to stay. First class accommodation and the staff couldn't be more helpful or friendly. This place certainly lives up to its reputation - everything we hoped for and more. The welcome, the beautiful "rooms" (they are much more than this!), the cleanliness and the game drives themselves. It was an unforgettable experience and one that we would encourage anyone to participate in.
