A beautiful working olive farm in Oudtshoorn. Rooms are clean and tastefully decorated. Restaurant was excellent-can highly recommend the mushroom fillet. Enjoyed watching Soccer World Cup in bar area with a roaring log fire-thanks to Anton. Service at reception desk was very average-had to sign my credit card slip with a pencil??

We as a family of four stayed at the beautiful Surval olive estate on our way down to the coast. The estate is located 5km outside Oudtshoorn on a working olive farm. Our room was a duplex suite with huge barn doors that could open up to the amazing views. The surrounding gardens are well laid out and I'm sure... More

I had the good fortune of discovering Surval Boutique Olive Estate on a recent visit to Oudsthoorn. Although I attended to official business in Oudtshoorn for the week, the well positioned estate just 5km outside of town that presented a splendid relaxing haven after work, the lovely room with views to die for i stayed in and the beautiful surroundings...

We stopped over on our way to Knysna. What a lovely hotel. The decor is stunning and service amazing. Wished we could have stayed longer.

Lovely venue just outside Oudtshoorn. Close to all the major attractions. Perfect wedding venue, beautiful little chappel on premises, outdoor cocktail area and a spacious venue for the wedding dinner. Feels like being on a farm in the middle of nowhere, very peaceful. Room was small and relatively pricey, but well equipped and tidy. Restaurant has nice menu for both... More

The room seemed nice, but I found the service and facilities to be very below standard. If I compare the pricing and service received from 4 and 5 star rated places we stayed at, Surval was one of the most expensive and most disappointing.

We stayed for 3 nights as our son was getting married in Surval and the whole experience was wonderful. A dream setting surrounded by mountains. The rooms were fabulous, especially the honeymoon suite. The staff were friendly and helpful.It is a short drive into Oudtshoorn. Would definitely recommend.

Well one can only assume that when booking at a Boutique hotel that’s exactly what you get - specialised, above average service, dining etc …unique from the run of the mill hotel experience’s so to speak. Regrettably this has become the “status” many small establishments have in mind but somehow do not have the means in achieving this. Surval Botique... More

Weren't to sure about entrance to reception,but did arrive late and was dark. Suggestion to have more signs and to light path... A suggestion to have a second down pillow,as we battled a bit with the big ones......but in all,we loved our stay.
