Accommodation was good with the rooms very clean and was made welcome from the very start. Deedee picked us up at the airfield and we were looked after from the get go. Check in was straight forward as was check out and the entire experience was very pleasant. Would I visit again, hell yes! Special thanks to Hugo for running... More

This was our second visit to Surval, and have decided to come back every year. The staff are always willing to accomodate any need you have, the rooms are beautifully decorated and the views are beyond description. Surval is one of the very few places that I feel I can fully relax, it is so peaceful and calm.

My husband and I stayed at Surval, in the Honeymoon Suite, the evening of our wedding, we decided we have to go back and enjoy another stay - what an enjoyable stay it was! Frikkie and his friendly professional staff made our stay as pleasant as possible. The view is spectacular, the food delicious and the room exquisite (not to... More

A very beautiful place, with stunning facilities and surroundings. We had a couple of wobbles with the finishing touches from housekeeping and special menu requests being ignored, but after complaining everything was satisfactorily sorted. We would go back.

Surval Boutique Olive Estate is an amazing place to stay with friendly staff and an awesome view of the Swartberg Mountains. Definitively a must see and stay place for anybody. We've enjoyed our stay at Surval and will visit again.

We spent a couple of very pleasant nights here. Originally we had two rooms (clean and well appointed) given to us that overlooked the car park, but they quickly changed to a very nice family room which was much better. Unfortunately none of the rooms seem to be facing the pleasant views of the river, although the pool area does.... More

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

Dear Stevyn, We thank you for choosing Surval for your stay in Oudtshoorn. Oudtshoorn has a rich heritage and many attractions to offer for overseas visitors, as yourself. We do appologize for the time of check-in, however we did not receive a room list in advance for a group of 7. Our goal is to provide our guests with a... More
