We love visiting this establishment. They are consistently good with what they offer and as we have been here several times, we can also see that they maintain their property very well. They make sure that the visitor feels at home by a clever mix of decor and surprises. We arrived on a very cold day and we were welcomed with a room where they lit the fireplace and brought a big pot of coffee for us and hot chocolate for the kids (and no extra charge!). Expect to find a huge bathroom with all the amenities from shampoo, etc. All rooms have a television, hairdryer, aircon and also coffee/tea and lovely biscuits. They also have a fridge and wineglasses etc. on the veranda of every room. Loads of comfortable places to sit and read in the garden and a restaurant and bar for breakfast and dinner. They are conveniently situated enroute to the Cango Caves, Wilgewandel (a lovely playpark for kids) and gamefarms etc. We will be back!

Sadly we only stayed here for the one night as we only arrived late afternoon.
Our room was one of the cottages set in the magnificent gardens which are beautifully kept.
The room was large with a fantastic bathroom with a corner bath, walk in shower. We enjoyed a quiet sundowner drink in the gardens before our evening meal and a very peaceful night sleep.
The breakfast was one of the best we had on the tour with so much choice and the service went that little bit extra to make sure everything was perfect.
If we visit this area again we would try and make sure we stay at De Opstal again.

Unfortunately we stay in this hotel only one night, wish to stay longer.
everything was perfect from the warm welcome till the sad check out.
Immediately we feel like we were at home and been in this place for long time, the room was fantastic ,with attention to the smallest detail. Bathroom was spacious, clean and even with Jacuzzi. Food and services in the restaurant was perfect.
overall marvelous stay.

Stayed here forgone night prior to going to the caves and ostrich farm. Dinner and ambiance was outstanding but then upon returning to the room for a shower, e hot water was nowhere to be found. The same thing happened in the morning. Having a hot shower is one of life's joys and going 0/2 diminished the value associated with this place considerably. Absolutely beautiful grounds though, great food, just need some hot h20!

We stayed at De Opstal for two nights, wished we'd stayed longer. Our room was absolutely beautiful as were the grounds of the De Opstal. It was conveniently situated for visits to the Cango Caves, scenic waterfalls and drives. Oudshoorn is also famous for its Ostrich farms. If we ever get to visit again we'll definitely make it three nights to take advantage of the De Opstals beautiful grounds and swimming pool. The restaurant was good, if anything we were given too much to eat.
Really enjoyed our stay.
