This is a good hotel in a beautiful peaceful setting. The staff were all very helpful and attentive. Dinner and breakfast were good. The room we wetre given on our tour was very comfortable, but had no door on the toilet, with only a bamboo screen between it and the bedroom. I would have rated this as an excellent hotel... More

I stayed at Surval for three nights to learn more about olive growing in the Klein Karoo. I enjoyed a tour of the olive farm with Andre Du Preez. Andre is the farm and orchard manager. His knowledge and passion for olives is very clear to see. He takes care and loves every tree. I live on an olive farm... More

A spur-of-the-moment getaway led us to Surval. What a surprisingly wonderful experience! Rooms are tastefully decorated with modern furnishings, with little hints to remind you that you are still in the Karoo. Air-conditioning is essential in this part of South Africa and all rooms are suitably equipped. Since the layout of the buildings is based on the original farmstead, some... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on our tour of the Garden Route. The whole setting of this hotel was amazing, the views, the grounds with all the gazebos and the pool area were a real treat of luxury. The room my husband and I stayed in was large, modern, luxurious and spotless. All the staff were friendly, understanding and... More

The views from the hotel dining area are breathtakingly beautiful. The room we stayed in was spacious and nicely decorated. The bathroom was also spacious. The room was extremely clean and tidy. The staff were friendly and accommodating. Especially when my husband enquired jokingly at the spa if we have the 'Togetherness' package separately. We enjoyed the spa and all... More

Lovely furnishing and friendly dining staff! Reason for poor sleep quality - there was dripping water all night somewhere in the roof and kept me awake all night. Nobody to call after 10 pm and when I told reception in the morning I got an "oh ok" !!

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.
