We had a very nice stay here. The room was cozy (you think your back at grandma's house 😉 ) and the bathroom clean and rather big. But what made the stay incredibly was the food! Their kitchen was the best. We had ostrich "steak" prepared on the grill in the dining room. Outstanding!!! The pool area is very nice....

This is a substantial working farm, in a truly beautiful setting. The residential housing, and particularly the outdoor meals area is splendid. The food (which includes a substantial evening meal) is good and the service pleasant and efficient. A bonus for guests who want it, is an interesting pre-breakfast guided tour of the farm. We enjoyed that very much, and...

This was our first nights stopover from Cape Town and the proprietors were oh so attentive and informative. You get to go on an organised trip checking out their stock of ostriches and watch the sheep being rounded up. Evening meal exceptional my husband being an ex butcher rated it first class, can't be better than that!

Anne Liz and Neels are the perfect hosts. We experienced a cosy family atmosphere eating with other guests. They were extremely friendly and service orientated. The bedrooms were well equipped and cosy. Anne Liz served us with pleasure and Neels barbecued our meat on the open fire. The early morning tour by Neels of their farm to see sheep, ostriches...

Although we only spent one afternoon, night and morning at Skeidings, we were knocked out with the hospitality, attention to detail and fare offerings from Ane-lise and Neels. The little touches to the rooms e.g. lavender cuttings on the bedding and towels, were charming. The meals were awesome. Ostrich steak done on the braai in the dining room was superb....

Hosts Neels and Anné-Lize have created a great environment for visitors on their farm. The accommodation is fantastic, with great views of the countryside, and the food marvellous. A bonus is the 7.30 am farm tour - a great way to work up an appetite for breakfast. Easy access to the N2 makes this a convenient stop-over - though also...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Skeiding is one of those places that you fall in love with for no reason ... maybe it's the absolute peace and tranquillity or the panoramic views of the Langeberg mountains or the bright stars at night or the mouth watering food or the goodness of being close to nature ... that makes you want to come back. Situated on high, open, rolling terrain you experience the feeling of freedom and being kind of alone with no neighbour in sight. Skeiding is a working grain, sheep, ostrich and Nguni farm … close to the N2 and halfway (250 km) between Cape Town and Knysna. This makes us the ideal stopover. A friendly family farm, an education for city slickers, a place to relax and enjoy panoramic mountain views as the farm is situated on high, open rolling terrain. We Neels and Anné-Lize is two energetic people who love life …you need to be to run a farm, a young family (Anné and Pieter), two dogs (Dixie and Jessie), a cat (Tierkat) and a guesthouse in the same lifetime.Spoil yourself and stay Bed & Breakfast or even better, have dinner.Our sumptuous farm breakfast include : a plate of fruit in season, at least a dozen homemade preserves and jams, freshly baked bread, vetkoek ( a traditional farm fried bread), a cheese platter, cereals, yogurt, eggs and also a choice between ostrich and pork bacon..Enjoy home cooked country cuisine prepared by Anné-Lize and her small team of able and enthusiastic assistants. Neels is the meat “chef” on the open fire, unless farm work calls him away. A three course ... more   less
