The rooms are immaculate, modern and spacious. The pool area is perfect for hot Oudtshoorn days. The restaurant has a wide variety of options including many of the regional specialities. The quality of the food was...

My next vacation to the Western Cape will include even a longer stay at the Surval Boutique Estate. Their staff gave us a World Class service, they are highly knowledgeable, friendly and could offer expert advise.

This place is an absolute Gem in Oudtshoorn Accommodation is superb, staff is super friendly and food is outstanding. The wine selection in the restaurant is excellent at affordable rates. Don't forget to taste the olives, olive jam and tapenade - you will buy a box full.
