The accommodation is set up as a log cabin. There is not internet, no television and no music. There's a total disconnect just to hear the birds and wildlife in the area. The rooms don't have the best bathrooms however a family member did have a room where the bathroom was revamped. The rooms are very old, with old furniture however staying at the hotel it wouldn't be advisable to spend alot of time in the rooms. The best part of the hotel I felt was the amazing staff who really did take care of us during the Covid period. Sandile, Keith and their staff especially the chefs, took great care of us. Separate areas to dine and no interaction with no other guests at the hotel. The chef was amazing with gourmet breakfasts and amazing 3 course dinners. The family felt extremely safe and free and enjoyed the time away. …
Very unwelcoming, with lots of signs saying" don't do that, can't do that." Owners barely visible, waitrons never topped up coffee and chief waitron didn't know difference between sweet/dry sparkling wine and couldn't open bottle herself. Furnishings all rather tired, though nice big bedroom & comfy bed. Dinner menu was very limited , tasteless chicken schnitzel & tasteless cheese sauce and sauceless sole. Think the only redeeming features were the situation by the gorge for lovely walks and the EXCELLENT cafe nearby leopard cafe. Thin walls!
The room was very uncomfortable - the mattress was hard with only a comforter, no sheet, the room was hot with only a ceiling fan, no a/c. But the worst thing was the mosquitoes that came out at night and bit us all night long. Could not use the cover since it was too hot and when uncovered got eaten. The restaurant was poor with no fresh offerings. The breakfast was ok. No internet
We were staying at nearby self catering Oribi Gorge guest farm, and called here for lunch. Pleasant lunch in shaded outdoor area. Waitress Joan (?) exceptionally cheerful and attentive. (Turns out she's worked there for years and enjoys her job- it shows; they should give her a bonus!) We had steak pie. Filling excellent, pastry a bit soggy. Chips and side salad good. Better than average soft drink selection. Prices reasonable. Beware monkeys if you sit outside. Dirt road to get to hotel could do with better maintenance, but was passable in ordinary saloon car.
We stayed overnight at the Oribi Gorge Hotel. The staff, food and atmosphere was fantastic. While the room was great, we could hear people walking above us which was very irritating as it was late at night. The gorge itself was breathtaking although I was not brave enough to do the gorge swing. The suspension bridge was hair raising but a must to experience. A wonderful getaway.
