Had one night here on the way down from Durban to Cape Town. The room was amazing and I wish I had have had more time to enjoy the bath and the kitchenette! The upstairs room had a connecting door so it would be great for families or a group of travellers (2 couple etc...choose the downstairs room as it...

My boyfriend and I stayed at Mooiplaas for 3 nights while driving across South Africa, and this place was definitely one of the highlights of the entire trip. The accommodations are absolutely spectacular, with very comfortable beds, a fantastic bath, and beautiful rooms. We enjoyed a drink on the patio in front of our room every evening, and it was...

Stayed here for two nights on our trip on the garden route. Never thought I would be staying on an ostrich farm! Rooms were good, beds comfortable and staff super friendly. It was just sooooo quiet and peaceful. We were able to sit outside our room and just listen to the birds. At night, as there is no light pollution...

We really enjoyed our one night stop over here. Our rooms were spacious and the hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was lovely and served on our patio. The rooms were very clean, and the pool was great for the kids.

My family of 5 visited Mooiplaas guest house for just a one night stay during our travels along the Garden route. We found our 2 rooms to be of a very high standard, extremely spacious and with fantastic bathrooms. The biggest plus point of the bedrooms though was the view from the verandas. Where else could you sit with views...

I had some trouble with my reservation, which didn't leave me with the best first impression. I had booked Mooiplaas with a third party (International Vacation Hotels) and gotten written confirmation of my booking, only to receive an email from Mooiplaas saying "we cannot accommodate you on the low rates". I then had to rebook with hotels.com at a higher...

Our accommodation was superb - spacious, clean, quiet and very comfortable. I did not like the bland Ostrich steak that I had for dinner and the dessert that followed was just scoops of icecream with a few bits of fruit. The service at mealtimes was not good and the staff, although friendly, seem under-trained. However, the Ostrich tour after breakfast...
