Cape Town
Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

We stayed one night but wished we had stayed longer. Really well appointed rooms, not your usual b&b. Great restaurant on site serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Ostriches around to look at (and well prepared in the restaurant too). Lots of space for kids to run around.

One reviewer was disappointed, don't let that put you off as we found the service impeccable and by far the best we have had in SA (we have travelled extensively in SA in the last 6 months) food excellent and wine couldn't be faulted. Miss this and you've missed out!

The Guest House is actually located inside a working ostrich farm. The views are incredible and the overall atmosphere most relaxing. The accommodations were first class in every way. The restaurant served gourmet dishes with a good selection of premiere South African wines. Similarly, the breakfast served was delicious. The staff was kind and helpful. Our only regret is to...

Sadly, I have to report: tough ostrich 'filets', slow service, and criminally, poorly stored/spoilt wine (we have up after 2 bottles). Overall - despite having lived in SA, this is not up to international standards. Sorry.

This farmhouse is so quaint, with delicious food and surreal sunset views! The ostriches can be seen from your window - make sure to eat the farm dinner and order the ostrich steak. They'll even cook you ostrich eggs for breakfast!
