A beautiful place with a spacious and clean room thank you. It is all just quiet impersonal - The dining room has no atmosphere, and the room had a small tv with a few local stations, booking luxury suite one expects to be able to have seen the Olympics and some World News stations - so frustrating when you relax...

Thank you for a great stay at Surval in August. It has been our second visit this year. A great location for summer and winter stays. Thank you Willem for all the extra effort with our son. The location is great, just 5 km from town, but far enough out to enjoy peace and quiet. Our Luxury room had more... More

Grab rails in the shower and next to the toilet would have been great, as I was travelling with my elderly mother. I asked for a wheelchair friendly room. We stayed in the Koroneiki room with perfect wheelchair parking.

I needed to overnight near Oudtshoorn and this 'boutique' hotel sounded promising. At R900 for single occupancy it was not cheap, but I was hoping for value for money. I arrived after dark and it was easy to take the wrong track leading up to the hotel as signposting was poor. The reception, some 75 metres walk from the car... More

This was a last minute booking while on the road to Oudtshoorn - what a gem I found. The place is beautiful, the rooms have everything you can possibly need and the restaurant is superb. I will not stay anywhere else in this area.

Our large, beautifully furnished room had spectacular views of the mountains. The olive estate is well maintained as far as we could see and the olive tasting table laid out in the orchard was a stunning setting. I would strongly recommend the olive jam and chutney. The staff were friendly, breakfast and dinner were good and the wifi worked even... More

A very pretty hotel in a great location. The rooms were nice but a little disappointing - small things like poor sound insulation and a too-cold geyser let down an otherwise lovely hotel a little bit. The restaurant was good (although a few more vegetarian options on the menu would be great!) and service was very friendly and generally good.

We enjoyed our stay at Surval olive Estate. The room was spacious and nicely decorated. The staff were very friendly and we had a excellent dinner at the restuarant. The breakfast was very good with a variety of cold and hot from the buffet.Thank you for a nice stay.

My wife and I recently had an anniversary dinner at Surval and quite frankly, it took our breath away. On arrival we were met by friendly staff smiling from ear to ear making us feel completely relaxed and welcomed. We received our glasses of sparkling wine and escorted to our private dining area, where a candle lit table was set... More
