We booked for a last minute weekend at this lodge. I'd made a mistake by ticking the wrong date, but that was not a problem (you have to trust them and be patient as there's not always phone reception). When arriving, you fall in love with the olive garden and the great attention the owners paid decorating the place, trying... More

We decided to make a break away weekend to Robertson. Seeing that it was in the heart of winter we searched for accommodation which would offer us a cozy hideaway with a fireplace where we could cabin for the weekend. We came across this picturesque Country Lodge tucked away in the valley outside of Robertson between the mountains. What an... More

A really good dinner hosted by Gina and prepared by husband, Fernand. A fairly eclectic meal which had a hint of olive in every dish. The accommodation was a bit "tired" and rooms are in need of a little sprucing up Overall a really pleasant stay

This establishment is very cosy but must admit that was expecting more regarding the rooms, in the middle of winter a fireplace is a major necessity and having to jump out of bed in the middle of the night to add more wood to a fire is not my idea of fun and as well as running out of wood... More

Our stay lasted 3 nights during the Cape Epic. This required early starts and our hosts were kind enough to cook hot breakfasts at 5am each morning. (Always with smiling faces) We also took advantage of Fernand's wonderful meals each evening. Nothing was a problem. A friendly guest house, a home away from home with the addition of beautiful views... More

The Lodge is located in a lovely area. The layout of the chalets allows for good views of the surrounding area and hills from the veranda. The bathroom and bedroom were quite spacious and the veranda was also a good size. The complimentary tapas and glass of wine served on our veranda at sunset was a lovely touch. Breakfast was...

Olive Garden Country Lodge is quite unique and special and that is courtesy of its owners Gina and Fernand. We were sadly only there for one night and arrived just after dark due to some badly judged timing of driving distances by me! Our disorganisation continued as I had neglected to inform Gina in advance that I am vegetarian. Both... More

A private valley next to the wine route, extremely friendly service and a Grand Chef 's table based on own local bio products combined with fine olive tasting made by IGADI self, makes this experience heavenly

We have never seen hospitality like that provided by Gina and Fernand at Olive Garden Country Lodge. Our room was beautiful and the baby cot already set up for us. We were welcomed with wine, cheese, and homemade snacks. Their working farm is in a private valley of high desert, fruit trees, olive groves, and lovely hikes. Fernand was our... More
