My wife and I stayed here for a few days end of April. I was working locally. We had a super room overlooking the beautiful view North of the estate. Food, wine and service were excellent throughout. A grey place to stay or just for a meal. We'll be back! Only down side was poor wifi/broadband.

Excellent rooms, clean, beautiful and quite luxurious. Lovely breakfast buffet, although service here could be brighter. Peaceful, tranquil surroundings at a wonderful site. The service was good, although reception can improve somewhat.

The staff were friendly & were attentive to all our requests. Su casa restaurant is a must for authentic karoo quisine. We enjoyed the olive tour & found it very interesting. The teddy bear for my daughter as a gift was a nice touch. Just wish we had a king size bed instead of twin. Otherwise we had a wonderful... More

I had booked this hotel under the impression that it was a boutique hotel with a very good restaurant. As we drove up to the huge parking area we realized this is more a group orientated hotel rather than anything boutique like. I have to say that the staff are all very very friendly but unfortunately most are clueless expect... More

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

The food we received at our wedding was cold and not good at all. The next morning at breakfast we ordered white bread and they said they dont have any and the breakfast was not prepared well at all.....!

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
