We stayed here for 3 nights on our "Route 62" trip. Everything about the hotel and estate is truly fabulous. We were misguided by our Garmin and got to the estate via a long dirt road from town, luckily we have a 4 x 4 so this was not at all stressful, however once Mark explained to us the short way in & out of the estate off the main road, this was a cinch.
What you see on the internet does not do the estate justice, everything is so well laid out & thought out. The grounds are stunning. We stayed in the Kalamata room which surpassed our expectations. It was huge, comfortable & beautifully decorated. The bathroom is divided off from the room by a bamboo clad wall and also very spacious and well appointed.
The main building which houses the reception, restaurant, function & conference rooms, offices and kitchen give one a 5* feel the minute you enter the front door, it is gorgeous.
We ate dinner in the restauranmt on our first evening and each had fantastic, tasty and well presented meals, a little on the pricey side but we thoroughly enjoyed the food together with the warm & luxurious ambience. Our breakfasts were great with a more than sufficient variety to choose from.
A wonderful experience and would highly recommend the estate. We wish them all the best with the challenges they have on their hands getting their signage approved by the local authorities which will help tremendously as this is a worthwhile stop on the Oudtshoorn map. We hope they go from strength to strength!
