My husband and I have recently spent two nights at De Zeekoe and we wished we had been able to stay at least twice as long! Fabulous place and far exceeded our expectations. We were expecting an ostrich farm and instead found a mini hotel with fabulous garden in the middle of an alfalfa farm. The common areas of the... More

A joy to stay, a warm welcome inside (41 decrees outside) Well laid out rooms, with small terrace overlooking the garden and pool. They do a Meerkat tour in the morning, which I heard from other guests that it was excellent. A good place to visit the surrounding countryside. The restaurant in the evening was wonderful, with views to the... More

No one thinks that this place has originally started as a B+B on a farm. Today it has become one of the best recommended places in Oudtshoorn. Over the years, the Manageress has done an exceptional good job. She is persistently improving and upgrading the rooms. She has her own eye and ideas on how her rooms have to look... More

My husband and I have just spent 3 days at the farm, our second visit, and it has been wonderful, and so relaxing. Nothing is too much trouble and the staff do everything they can to make your stay perfect. The food is very good, with a wonderful selection for breakfast, which is much appreciated if you have been up... More

En route to a game park, we spent a night at De Zeekoe, eight kilometres outside Oudtshoorn. We chose a cabin overlooking the dam, being birders and get-away-from-it-all travellers, but were disappointed: no table on the spacious deck overlooking the water, no cupboards or hanging space (except for two hangers cocked over a hook in the bathroom), no table next...

My wife and I spent 2 nights on December 2014. The hotel is nice, the staff is friendly and the food is good. But we didn't sleep for 2 nights. The room was very close to the restaurant kitchen. Noise in the evening and noise in the morning. The windows in the bathroom is just 1 meter from the kitchen.... More

Dear Billalele Thanks for taking the time to write your review. Unfortunate that you didn't have a pleasant stay with us, and that weren't able to move you to another room ( due to the fact that we were fully booked).

We went to De Zeekoe to have the experience of seeing wild meerkats. This was unforgettable, not only for the meerkats, but also the exceptional food, all fresh and grown on or close to the premises (ostrich steak highly recommended), and the accommodation and surroundings. Would be wonderful for children also plenty of space to play although only older children... More

We actually had no plans to spend the night in Oudtshoorn, but man, are we happy we got tired at the right time :) De Zeekoe happened to have availability - we showed up and were shown a few of the available options and we choose one of the cabins on the lake. It is easily one of the highlights... More

We stayed in the main house and our room was large and very comfortable, every thing we needed was there. The resturant food was very good and the staff most helpful. It was really worth getting up early to do the meerkat safari the guide was very informative and you see them in there natural habitat

Second visits to a place or property often do not come up to experiences of a first visit. I had that in mind when I decided to take my family to De Zeekoe. I stayed there for the first time in September 2013 and enjoyed it greatly. I am delighted to say that not only did De Zeekoe meet the... More
