We stayed here for 1 night, 7 adults and 1 child. It just wasn't long enough. Beautiful area with amazing views. Food to die for, service was to a very high standard. Rooms were spacious and clean. Lovely balconies. Pool was great. Would love to return here one day.

This is the place for peace and quiet, in the middle of the Klein Karoo with views of the Swartberg Mountains to the north and the Outeniqua Mountains to the south. We stayed in the honeymoon suite, which has only been finished in the last year from the original kitchen in the farmhouse. A massive room and beautifully decorated. Obviously... More

Dear Howard C :) Thank you for this lovely review, you are quite right that in the little Karoo gardening might be a little more challenging than in the areas that has more frequent rain. What helps a lot is the dam we build to enable us to gather water in the rainy season as well as the bore hole... More

We stayed one night in suite 6 which is just amazing (Nov. 2013). Spacious apartment with a stunning view!!! Dinner and breakfast was perfect. We also liked the very professional and personal touch. We for example watched the stars and moon with Rudi's telescope and listened to his extensive knowledge on this subject.

Very nice and comfortable stay in Oudtshoorn. Place is warm, the cottage is perfect and big. The staff is very professional. The dinner is ok, as the breakfast. Do not miss the visit to highgate farm, closer to De Denne.
