This was our third trip to Bartholomeus Klip over the course of a few years and its has been consistently magical. The setting is almost dream like. A Cape Farm, nestling at the foot of mountain, far enough from any road not to hear a sound except for the birds in the trees and the animals on the farm. In... More

Bartholomeus Klip provides a luxury farmhouse experience. I always feel pampered when I stay here. The setting is beautiful, the game drives are lovely, and the meals are exquisite - especially dinner in the conservatory.

My wife and I got married at Bartholomeus Klip in 2010. Only very few of our guests had ever heard of this special place, far away from hectic Cape Town, but still within just over an hour driving distance. Over the last six years or so we are regular guests at this country hotel. We go there to just escape... More

The amazing service stood out for all of us. The food was so delicious and plentiful, was a real treat to have brunch and tea served at the wild olive house. We had a comfortable, homely and most importantly unpretentious stay. All of us enjoyed it - from toddlers to adults. A rare find - would love to go back.

For many years, BK was on our list to visit. Since we travel every year to SA, we decided to stay this year at BK. Its many good reviews had us convinced that this must be a place to be. That was a bit of a disappointment. The prices for a room are quite high (500-600 euros). You expect a... More

The fifth time in 5 years we have visited Bartholomeus Klip which says much of what we think about it. Superb location, wonderful staff and a brunch and afternoon tea that cannot be beaten. Be prepared to put on weight! The mountains make an amazing backdrop to the nature reserve. Geometric tortoises are a plus.
