I visited Cosmos Cuisine in March 2015 and the setting, the proximity to Addo Elephant Park, the big and luxuriously comfortable rooms and of course that sumptuous food made for an excellent stay!! What a great experience - thank you to management and staff!

Great stay with great comfort and incredible meals. Very attentive owners and staff. Situated in a beautiful garden setting and close to Addo. It was previously a shopping centre which has been converted into really comfortable, well appointed rooms

We stayed two nights in this lovely guesthouse. We had a beautiful furnitured and spacy room, directly to the garden. The guesthouse is very quite and comfortable. Dinner was excellent and the stuff is doing all their best to feel like "at home"

An outing to the Addo Park led to overnighting at this fantastic guest house. It started with an exceptionally warm welcome, a slick check-in, and introduction to a fantastic room. The room was huge, absolutely spotless and incredibly well appointed. The en suite was massive, and once again had everything...great soaps ,6 towels, a big and effective wall heater etc... More

We stayed for 2 nights with our family in order to access Addo Elephant Park during the school holidays. Unfortunately the house is on a busy road and we heard trucks thundering past us most of the night. The food was average and totally overpriced measured at Cape Town restaurant prices - and certainly bears no relationship to the food... More
