Berluda Farmhouse provides a great stop off if travelling from Hermanus to Plettenburg Bay along the Garden Route. Perfectly located for the Cango Caves which are a must see. Staff are extremely friendly and informative. Ostriches living on the farm add an interesting element to your stay. Rooms are spacious with good amenities but furniture is a little dated. Evening...

We stayed here only for 1 night, not enough. It will be more next time. We arrived by midday and asked if we could get a tour of the Ostrich farm. Normally they don't do it without reservation and only in the mornings, but they were so kind to do it for us and we received wonderful explanation about the... More

We stayed 1 night at Berluda farmhouses and it was traditional accommodation with great breakfasts, adjacent to ostrich farm. Staff very helpful and took time to re-arrange rooms to cater for a family of 7 with very different needs. We would have no hesitation in recommending to others.

We loved staying at Berluda. Our cottage was clean, the kids loved the spa bath and the bedding was of very high quality. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, we will definitely recommend and stay there again if ever we're in the area.

We spent two nights here and on arrival we were upgraded to a bigger unit. Comfortable and clean. Friendly staff who were quick to assist where necessary. Very close to the Cango Caves, Cango Wildlife Ranch and town.

This was our 3rd visit to Berluda. As always we enjoyed the hospitality, friendly staff, clean cottage with good quality bedding. So peaceful and quiet one cannot help but feel totally relaxed when you sit on the lovely "stoep". This is value for money with a really personal touch.

We visit between 20 and 30 guesthouses per year and Berluda is by far the worst place we have ever stayed at. Upon our arrival we were told that we were moved to cottage number 6 although we paid for the honeymoon cottage number 2. When we entered cottage number 6 it was a family cottage with 2 corner baths... More

This is the second time we stayed at this beautiful place. We really enjoyed it. Dec'2014 we stayed for 3 Days. When arrived we found that they upgraded us to a more luxury unit at no extra cost. We like sitting on the patio and looking over the farm to the nice Swartberg mountains.

We had made a last minute decision to visit Oudtshoorn and only started looking for place on the morning of arrival. We searched the web for possible accommodation, Berluda cottages delivered everything as per their website and the pictures are a true reflection of the accommodation. We are a family with a baby and young son and needed self catering... More

Berluda Farmhouse & Cottages has been a real energy booster for us - located close to Oudtshoorn, but peacefully in the middle of the nature. The cottages are just amazing. The host and the personnel very helpful! Too bad we couldn't stay longer, but will definately come back!
