We really enjoyed our visit to this location as it has a nice mix of old & new with friendly staff .Its part of a working farm and we got a chance to see how ostrich farming works from hatching to adults.Our guide were very informative while having a bit of fun as well.

We booked online based on short notice availability at the time. When we called to confirm our booking with additional sleeping arrangements we were impressed with the friendly and professional assistance. Upon arrival/check in we experienced great hospitality by the owner and all our extra requirements were in place. The cottage was neat and spacious with a warm home feeling... More

We decided to dine at the farmhouse & had a great meal, as we where the only diners that evening the attention we received was very personal. Chef came out before each course & explained what we...

Berluda provides exceptionally large and comfortable accommodation at very reasonable rates. The service and accommodation are up there with the very best. Enjoy a self catering meal cooked on a braai with provided wood and fire lighters or eat great food at the restaurant. Either way you will not be disappointed. A great base to explore the Klein Karoo from... More

We stayed 2 nights at Bermuda Farmhouse and Cottages and although the location is great, the cottages quite spacious and pleasant, it is worth noting (which we failed to do) that there is no option for having lunch or dinner on site.

We stayed for New Years Eve. We'd booked with Trailfinders and were travelling with 9 and 7 year old children. We expected adjoining or at least adjacent rooms but got ones across a patio. Rooms were nice and we had a good kitchen and a brai. The place was being looked after by a friend of the owners and seemed... More

We stayed in cottage #1 which was great as we had sunrise views of the Swartberg and the ostriches. The cottages are well appointed, all that you could need. We were a little chilly as the night were cold- and we didn't have heaters except for small floor ones. You have to eat dinner here- the chef Banzi was absolutely... More

Highly recommend this establishment. Top notch service from the staff and even the chef on duty. Everyone is so kind and are constantly making sure that you are happy, 5-Star treatment all the way. Rooms were immaculate and the breakfast was very nice. Breathtaking views. Had a wonderful time and will definitely be back.

We had a lovely 3-night stay in one of the self-catering cottages. Very comfortable accommodation and beautiful views. Farm's location is great; close to all Oudtshoorn has to offer. Owner and staff all very friendly and helpful. Will definitely recommend!
