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.

We (2 adults, 2 kids under 4) were staying in Wild Olive House which is a totally charming house with stunning views, a peaceful garden & terrace with a swimming pool. Its separate from the hotel (where young children are not welcome). Everyone was incredibly welcoming, the food was fabulous (though always too much) and we spent some wonderful days... More

We last stayed four years ago and it was just as we remembered - a wonderful welcome, relaxing, attentive service - but not to the extent it was "invasive", and not least lovely food beautifully presented. It will remain firmly on our itinerary when we next return to South Africa.
