Situated close to Citrusdal, this historic farm on Modderfontein is an absolute gem in the Cederberg. There are five individually decorated self-catering accommodations of which we had chosen the beautiful “Rooibos” cottage with its stunning antiques, period furniture, Chesterfield lounge suite and Persian carpets. The kitchen and living areas are enormous and both bedrooms are en-suite. The cottages are spotlessly... More

Ever driving from Cape Town to Namaqualand (west coast area of Western Cape) on the N7. (This national road will be totally upgraded by August 2015 all the way to Clanwilliam 250kilos.) Make sure you stop over at the "Old Village" in Citrusdal. This Hotel & Restaurant is at the foot of the Piekeniers Pass about 3kilos from Citrusdal. Whilst... More

What wonderful accommodation after being disappointed with our one night in Citrusdal. The Rooibos Cottage was delightful and very comfortable. There was a lot of attention to detail and we felt very welcone. Great food and certainly will be back next year when the flowers are in bloom.

Had a fabulous overnight stop there, the accomodation in the cottage was superb. Fully self contained, spotless and comfortable. Lovely surroundings on the citrus farm overlooking the valley. We ate dinner at the restaurant at the village and that meal was excellent. Wished we could have stayed longer if we had realised it was going to be so nice.

It is always surprising how quickly things become rural even when leaving the bigger South African cities like Cape Town. I was excited to be heading North from the Mother City, on the N7 towards the West Coast and Cederberg Mountains. Only two or so hours from the airport, following the simple directions “turn right at Piekenierskloofpass”, an old world... More
