Superb location with excellent staff. However, trendy but impractical design. First challenge - find Reception. It won't be easy. The first room we were given was huge but it had just one outside window. Unfortunately it was the bathroom window ! To be fair, they did move us to a better room, but that may not always be possible.

Amazing value for money and absolutly stunning scenery. The rooms are brilliant from the not very basic single rooms which are large to the even bigger double and luxary rooms. Very close to everything you might want to see in Oudtshoorn as it's situated on the same road as all the tourist attractions. And the staff couldn't have been more... More

The staff is very friendly and well trained. The view is stunning and the venue is In a style of its own. The swimming pool and jacuzzi is just what one need. I like the idea that you are not in town but it is only 10 minutes away. I enjoyed my stay tremendously and will be there soon again.

Our stay at Surval Boutique was lovely but unfortunately the food at the restuarant did not live up to the advertised glory! We were celebrating a birthday but they put us below a double story and the people above us seemed to be moving furniture the entire night!! The Olive tour and tasting was fantastic!

We stayed in the Surval boutique hotel in Oudsthoorn in October 2014 for the Cape Pioneer race. It is the perfect spot to visit the Klein & Groot Karoo: beautifull surroundings, marvellous rooms but most importantly: what a great service and food. The owner really understands the meaning of Hospitality!!

We stayed overnight with friends from Australia while on a road trip. The restaurant was very nice with very attentive staff. The place has a lovely new feel about it, but somehow lacks warmth. We were the only guests and the huge rooms obviously cater for weddings and large functions. Very clean with pretty surrounds.

Dear JMEady, Thank you for taking the time to write a review, as we regard all reviews. We are delighted that our restaurant has met your high standards, although your writing regarding the rooms is puzzling. Our rooms were designed around the origianal structures of buildings, established in the early 1800's. We do have a variety of room types availabe... More

We went as a group of friends. Our room was great and had an old Aga stove in it, just adding to the character of the room. Tastefully decorated and furnished. The location of the property just outside Oudtshoorn, gives you a feel of the surrounding area. The hotel is located right in the Olive tree farm next to a... More

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??
