This was the third time we stayed over at Cosmos Cuisine (over a period of 10 years) and once again we were treated to exceptional South African hospitality. The team (Elzona, daughter Lemien and husband Philip) run a tight and efficient "ship", providing outstanding accommodation, a gourmet cuisine and hospitality that is second to none! The location is conveniently close... More

I think that the review from 28th March sums it up well - food excellent, location good, rooms just OK. Hotel is convenient for Addo National Park (about 15 minutes drive). Situation is close to a rural road, but little traffic so not noticeable. The food was good. Not flashy or a chef trying to show how clever they are... More

We had an excellent experience at Cosmos Cuisine. I would highly recommend this guest house to anyone traveling to the Addo area. The grounds are beautifully kept. The room was large, clean and comfortable with all the necessary amenities (even a towel warmer on the wall!). The dining and lounging areas were just a few steps from our door. The... More

You can't beat the restaurant for dinner (or breakfast); it's really superb. I would say it was the best kudu I had in a month of being in South Africa. Tanya is a wonderful & organized hostess (both before and during the trip). Ryno means well and we enjoyed him alot but I think the hotel business is new for... More

Our stay surpassed all expectations. The staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful. The rooms and facilities were beautiful and could not have been better appointed. The food was excellent and the all-round experience was that of hospitality at its best.

We stayed at Cosmos for two nights. The personal service from Tanya and Ryno made us feel right at home. They assisted us with booking a tour of Addo Elephant Park, making the whole process smooth and easy. The meals were delicious, both breakfast and dinner, with a good wine selection and efficient service. The gardens and pool area were... More

We stayed for one night at Cosmos Cuisine to explore Addo and the surrounding area. The hotel is in a great location to spend the day in Addo, right off a main road and 15 minutes to the main entrance of the park. Very comfortable rooms that were quite charming and incredibly spacious. The staff was also incredibly welcoming and... More

We went for a 3 weeks trip through South Africa and this has been by far the very best accomodation.
