De Opstal is in the heart of ostrich farmland. The owners go the extra mile to make you welcome. Our lodge had a fabulous open fire. They put hot water bottles in our bed and the extras in the bathroom were appreciated. Matilda even did our washing. They gave us lifts to local restaurants as the restaurant was closed when...

We spent a couple of nights here in July and loved everything. The staff were all so friendly and helpful, the food was great and the accommodation was gorgeous. After a day out exploring the Cango Caves or visiting the ostriches, we loved just chilling in the late afternoon in our rocking chairs on the verandah with a glass of... More

Very warm welcome from the owners and loved the style of the rooms with all the facilities you could need for an overnight stay as part of our garden route tour. Grateful for the owners help in lighting our fire on a chilly evening. Food was plentiful and varied.

Visiting Outdshoorn with my family and girlfriend, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at De Opstal. When we arrived, we were swiftly welcomed by the staff and made to feel at home. The room had great character, in the evening it got quite cold but this wasn't a problem as the helpful staff lit a fire in our room which was... More

Hmmmmm! If I was not here as part of a tour I would have left by now. Taken to our room which was very cold and dated. Airconditioning on but barely functioning. We complained and were moved to another room with a slightly better airconditioner. The rooms were so cold that the beds felt really damp. After complaining again an... More

The staff really make this hotel, they are so friendly & accommodating. The room was lovely and big with a great bathroom including a corner tub. It was a nice setting & they served some good decent food, even if it was a buffet.

Huge room, with big clean comfortable bed, large bathroom with loads of lovely toiletries and separate toilet, which makes a nice change. Room has large Stoop overlooking the beautiful gardens where you could sit in the shade and have tea in the morning or drink in the evening. Gardens are well kept and the pool is nice for a dip...

Spent one night in this lovely hotel. Huge rooms full of character and personal touches. Thoroughly enjoyed the dinner and breakfast. Set in beautiful grounds just down the road from an ostrich farm which was well worth a visit. I would definitely stay here again.

The room was full of character with large veranda and very good bathroom. The grounds are delightful and very well maintained. The staff were friendly and helpful. Also offered free laundry. Was only let down by a poor evening meal but the manager responded well to our criticism.
