Lovely staff who were helpful and gracious. Beautiful rooms with lawns and pool just outside our room. Food was excellent and varied. Great wine. Access to free kayaks where you can explore the river.

Room Tip: easy to relax and enjoy

On arrival we were greeted very kindly with warm towels and a drink to refresh ourselves. Our room was very nice and special with a large shower and four-poster-bed. The open bath is quite something to get use to but overall we really liked the room.
The breakfast was ok. The buffet option is something not everybody likes. The choices were ok, too.
The location of the property is a bit off town. It takes about 10-15 minutes to Oudtshoorn city centre.

We arrived and were given a conducted tour of the establishment with all the facilities, what to do etc. to be then told we were booked into a cabin over 2km away (really in the middle of nowhere) Not fancying driving back and forth I asked for a room in the main block which they said was OK but they would not give me any refund (I didn't ask for one). Rooms are OK and perfectly acceptable and for one night we had a room with a balcony and great views. Because of its farm location, restaurant food area is beset with flies at breakfast although food is covered with muslin cloth. Lovely hot breads but hot food is buffet style and so not cooked individually. Dinner has to be selected in advance along with time of dining. No complaints over dinner menu or food.

Room Tip: unless you want to be isolated chose rooms in the main block

Stayed here for two nights as part of our garden route tour. Charming room and lovely garden . Ate dinner and would recommend Ostrich . A local G&T or beer to watch the sun go down worked well
Meerkat tour is worth the early start
Seemed to be a bit of an issue with the power later on the second night but didn’t last long

Very helpful staff who booked visits to Cango caves and an ostrich farm. Would recommend both. We were upgraded to a stone cottage which whilst luxurious was about a 10 minute drive away from the main hotel down a dirt track so felt a bit cut off. They kindly left two half bottles of wine for my husbands birthday and the cottage had everything you needed. Ate at the hotel one night. Delicious ostrich steaks. Breakfast a little disappointing. Self service beget compared to the individually cooked breakfasts we had elsewhere. Bacon had been sat a while and was very greasy.
