We stayed 2 nights in a room on the roadside of the restaurant. We expected some road noise and it was reasonable. What we didn't expect was the frog chorus most of the night. OK you're in a farm setting but these guys kept it going all night, must be spring. The buffet was adequate and wines reasonable. WiFi worked...

Wonderful, traditional dutch style country lodge, chalets, set in beautiful well kept gardens. This felt like home from home the moment we arrived because the hospitality was five star. The proprietors, Albertus and Matilda de Bod were so friendly and helpful. They arranged a private 2 hour ostrich farm tour through Matilda's brothers farm which was excellent and the genuine...

If you are staying in the oudsthoorn area you should choose the de opstall. It is located half way from the town to the cango caves. The hotel is a series of bungalows around beautiful gardens and a small unheated pool. The hotel is owned and run by a family who have run the ostrich farm for generations. They are...

We stayed for two nights the room and surroundings were fantastic, a real treat, however the food in the evening was poor and we eat out on the second night at the Black Swan. A few little problems on the first night , but these soon got sorted, would recommend De Opstal for a short stay

Wonderful staying here, pity it was only one night! We all agreed a second or third night was definitely well worth the location & amenities. Owners & staff are really great to be around, always friendly & helpful. I would highly recommend this to anyone staying in the vicinity of Oatshoorn.

What an unusual place to stay. We felt this was a farm which had converted various buildings into guests rooms. Our room had a lovely verandah, which had rocking chairs, fridge, kettle and pots in a cupboard. (Reminded me of American old movies!) As we walked into the room, it was spacious and had every thing you needed for an...

We stayed here for 2 nights, what a lovely place! Our room was huge, with an open fire (that we lit both nights) and a jacuzzi bath which was very welcoming after a long day on the road. Bizarrely, the fridge and tea/coffee making facilities were outside the room, on the verandah. This seemed odd as there was more than...

We stayed here this last weekend with a big group of friends to run a race in De Rust. The gardens were beautiful and the kids played and swam all weekend. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. The only downfall was the breakfast which I would rate below average. The staff were clearly overwhelmed by our whole group and...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this fantastic country lodge! We were welcomed by Albertus and Matilda and settled into one of the beautiful luxury stable rooms. The room was spacious, super clean and homely decorated. What a nice place to relax and spend a few days. Service was of the highest standard. Every morning we were spoiled with a...
