Our group was not happy with our treatment here. We were offered rooms with shared bathrooms, and one group of four had to travel over rough roads to very basic accommodation with a shared bathroom. Rooms were adequate, but not great, and obviously the accommodation had been overbooked for this evening. Food was quite good, rooms were clean, but grounds were in need of attention. Management clearly had not allowed for our group of 20 for this evening.

Room tip: Make sure this hotel is not overbooked before you commit.

Situated close to Citrusdal, this historic farm on Modderfontein is an absolute gem in the Cederberg. There are five individually decorated self-catering accommodations of which we had chosen the beautiful “Rooibos” cottage with its stunning antiques, period furniture, Chesterfield lounge suite and Persian carpets. The kitchen and living areas are enormous and both bedrooms are en-suite. The cottages are spotlessly clean and very well-equipped. The farm and cottages are steeped in history and you can actually feel the presence of the old world around you. The views of the Cederberg mountains from the cottage are stunning especially at sunset – sipping a sundowner gazing at pink and purple shaded mountains. Sonia is a super bubbly personality and we were warmly welcomed by her. You cannot pass Citrusdal without a stay-over at this wonderful destination. Thank you for a wonderful stay - We will most certainly return.

Room tip: Rooibos cottage is spacious and has a good elevation with beautiful views.

Ever driving from Cape Town to Namaqualand (west coast area of Western Cape) on the N7. (This national road will be totally upgraded by August 2015 all the way to Clanwilliam 250kilos.)
Make sure you stop over at the "Old Village" in Citrusdal. This Hotel & Restaurant is at the foot of the Piekeniers Pass about 3kilos from Citrusdal.
Whilst here you can visit the Citrusdal Baths "hot spring spa" only 15kilos on paved road from the "Old Village". Hot springs water cures many ailments that affect office workers. Also a cold pool.
The food is exquisite all made by the chef Sonia Hager. The rooms are renovated (by the owner who is from Holland-Nederland) old buildings of a farm first started in 1725. (that's old for South Africa)
The town of Citrusdal is situate on the Olifants River which flows north into the Atlantic at Papendorp close by to Vredendal/Lutzville. Here are many good wine cellars that do tasting.
Lastly, if you go in mid-August to end August you are usually okay for seeing "wild flowers" that literally carpet the landscape in a variety of colours, orange pink purple white red & blue.
If you have one more night to stay try the village of Strandfontein. Absolutely amazing sunsets.

What wonderful accommodation after being disappointed with our one night in Citrusdal. The Rooibos Cottage was delightful and very comfortable. There was a lot of attention to detail and we felt very welcone. Great food and certainly will be back next year when the flowers are in bloom.

What a wonderful country experience. The owners and team took alot of time to make the cottage expierience warm and inviting. Thank you for that. The cottage (bain's) is luxurious yet steeped in history and down to earth. The old buildings in the natural environments are kept ro prestine condition. If you want to get away, this is the place. Peaceful and calm. Really good for the soul. Thank you. Chris van Dyk. Langebaan.
