We stayed at De Zeekoe with our 2 kids for 2 nights. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. We stayed at the cabins near the lake. There is no proper separations between the rooms so we felt like we were in one room. We did not enjoy having to tip toe in the dark, whispering so that we did not disturb our kids whilst they were trying to sleep etc. There was no barrier against light and sound in the rooms. There is also poor insulation so the cottages were freezing at night and very hot in the day. There was however an air conditioner and hot blankets in the beds. The noise from the main road was also unpleasant. I felt a bit misled as I had booked this place after reading all the positive reviews on the establishment and finding that the cottages were nothing like the main guest accommodation. On the other hand, the cottages were very clean. The breakfasts were very good.
