My husband & I stayed at Berluda for one night. They made a double booking with our room and had to move us to the honeymoon suite. Which was more expensive, but they covered the difference in cost. Which we appreaciated. We were coldly treated when arrived. The honeymoon suite at R1 400 a night is a total rippoff!. So... More

On our trip through South Africa, this was our very favorite accommodation. We have travelled quite a bit and can say that everything about this place was perfect! The rooms were wonderfully decorated (and large) and they thought of every little detail there...it's the little things that matter. The grounds were so beautiful with all the plants and flowers including... More

We only stayed 1 night, passing through from Plettenburg to Hermanus, but you have to stay here! Great accommodation cottages and very close to Cango Caves and various Ostrich show farms. They recommended a local game lodge as a nice place to eat that evening and promptly made reservations for us. We wish we stayed for a 2nd night!

I stayed here with my teenage son, it was part of a 2 week tour of the Southern cape. We had travelled from The Addo Elephant Park and it was quite a drive to say the least. I havent ever driven that sort of distance without seeing anyone. Great welcome with a cheery smile and a bottle of wine. Our... More

The last time I visited Oudshoorn was 27 years ago. What a treat to stay at Berluda. We had a fantastic cottage with beautiful rooms and decor and chatted in front of the fire until late. The filter coffee went down a treat the next morning and I will recommend this to anyone!!! My son enjoyed feeding the ostriches some... More

We spent a couple of nights as part of a driving holiday. This is an excellent base from which to visit the Kango Caves and the Swartberg Pass. Our cottage was a bit tired but otherwise very spacious and comfortable. The wood fired Braai outside was very welcome and we were soon able to get a roaring fire going, both... More

We had a wonderful stay at Berluda. The guest cottage we stayed in was very spacious and it was great to have 2 large bedrooms and bathrooms as we were travelling with a 5 year old and 3 year old. The children loved having ostriches right on their door step and enjoyed playing in the open spaces around the farm.... More

We recently spent two nights here in the honeymoon suite which was very spacious and beautifully furnished. Cindy was very welcoming and helpful in making dinner reservations at two local restaurants and provided very useful information about what to do in the area. Being winter, we did not see any other guests so felt a little isolated and had breakfast... More

Our room was very nice, with somewhat old-fashioned furnishings, although very much in keeping with 'Dutch South African' style. One major problem was the 'blown' plaster on one wall, caused by what looked like damp from the drips from the A/C unit outside, lying on a path against the wall. Otherwise very good, with the A/C unit used to heat... More
