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

It is with great disappointment I read this review. I recall these guests specifically, and have contacted them directly since the comment in our visitors book: "Friendly staff and good food" does not correlate with this review. Kind regards Lemien de Ridder Owner More

I had the pleasure of staying at Cosmos Cuisine for 4 nights recently while working in the Eastern Cape. My room was clean, comfortable and every need attended too. Breakfast was superb. But the thing that made my stay particularly wonderful were the staff who were incredibly friendly and helpful and even came to my rescue one night when I... More

This was my second time staying with Cosmos, and I quickly remembered why I came back again! The staff are attentive and helpful, the rooms are large and every need has been accounted for, the food is great, and the poolside and grounds make for a relaxing and quiet place to recharge after a day of driving or adventuring in...

We booked in for two nights to attend a nearby family wedding. We were singularly impressed by the attention paid to our needs by the owners and staff, and the table was excellent, both for dinner and breakfast. The suite was spacy, tasteful and extremely well provided with hospitality extras. Highly recommended.

Superb room. Two bathrooms, big bedroom, full facilities. Great breakfast. Nice evening meal, if a little on the pretentious side. Good location for the elephant park. Ignore the suggestions of the proprietors regarding ideas for things to do and make your own choices. It really is a good place and if the people who ran it were less in your... More

We booked in at Cosmos Cuisine with our recent 20th anniversary. It was a very hot day and we were welcomed with a cool drink and refreshment towel. We had a beautiful large room that was clean and cool. The bathroom was stocked with interesting extras like Enos and nail clippers which I have never seen in a hotel room... More

When relatives from the UK gave short notice of a visit to SA, we tried to book into Addo, without success. After browsing the internet we came across this venue with the unlikely name of Cosmos Cuisine, situated 15 minutes from the main gate at Addo Elephant Park. It is an Afrikaans establishment and in true 'Boer' spirit the welcome... More

I stayed here for a couple of nights while in South Africa and it was wonderful. The guesthouse has a remarkable history, and it's close proximity to the Addo Elephant Park made it ideal. The food is to die for, and the staff was unbelievably helpful. Thank you Cosmos for making this leg of my journey a memorable one
