“Fantastic place to stay !!! Food was out of this world”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

My family stayed here for two nights as part of our Garden Route tour after getting married in SA . Luc and Hilde were the most hospitable warming hosts you could possible ask for. The fine attention to detail in all the rooms was very personal yet homely. We arrived to the most wonderful aroma of Hildes home cooking springbok loin which was to die for . Being able to see her working and preparing our evening meal was extremely interesting and her culinary skills were absolutely fantastic. I would not hesitate to recommend this guest house to anyone especially if you enjoy Michelin star quality food as that's what you'll get!!!
Thorough enjoyed our stay here with the beautifully kept gardens and house . Outstanding , thank you both so much

Another 5* six nights spent at Ballinderry. Good food, as usual from Hilde, good wines and good company. We have stayed many times at Ballinderry and always found it to be of a very high standard xxxxx

As guest houses go, they don't come much better than this. Along our trip from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth (and all points in-between) we stayed at very diverse guest houses/B&Bs ranging from "old-charm rustic" to "contemporary". Ballinderry probably rates as the most 'up-market' place we stayed, the standard was exceptional.
Warm welcome from Luc and Hilde, we didn't actually leave the guest house between arrival and departure the next morning, as we ate there in the evening and took advantage of the pool and beautiful garden area to chill out for a few hours.
We had the small outside Comfort Room which was spotlessly clean, well-appointed and perfectly comfortable for our one night. If we had been staying longer we may have opted for a slightly bigger room. TV in the room had all the sports channels,(useful for keeping up with the World 20/20!!) which is quite unusual to find.
Ballinderry was the most expensive guest house we stayed at on our trip, I guess you get what you pay for.
Breakfast was superb, even an indulgent glass of champagne offered! If you opt to eat in, Hilde's cooking is extremely good and obviously a big passion. Be sure, however, to advise any dietary needs/dislikes in advance as, understandably, it is a one-menu option.

Room Tip: We had the Comfort Room, which is the smallest and cheapest on offer. Perfectly good for one night...

Luc is super helpful...I asked if there could be chamomile tea in the room and he arranged that there was. My husband really enjoyed the sports channels. The guest house is close to the town's shops and restaurants and only a short drive to the Robertson wine route. We will definitely be back...as this was already our second stay. Its also GREAT value for money...the breakfast was delicious!

This was our second stay at Ballinderry, and it felt like coming home. Wonderful room in the main building. Luc and Hilde are truly fantastic hosts, with plenty of accurate advice on things to see in the Robertson wine area. Fantastic dinner by Hilde and a generous and excellent breakfast. We will return.

We spent one night at Ballinderry Guest House and we could not fault it. Luke was friendly, helpful and welcoming. Our bedroom was spacious and spotless (having said that I believe it is the biggest guest room) as was the bathroom. Nice fresh, clean, crisp linen with comfortable beds. The breakfast was delicious, Luke and Hilde use only locally sourced wholesome ingredients, and I gathered they supported animal products from ethical suppliers. We did not have dinner, but if the aromas coming from the kitchen were anything to go by the dinners must be great. Other guests had only good reports on dinners. Robertson is a lovely town with plenty to do in the vicinity. I wish we could have stayed longer.
