Bartholomeus Klip so conveniently situated to Cape Town and the Cape Winelands, yet a serene tranquil haven of fine hospitality in a glorious scenic setting remains a favourite with discerning South African and international travellers. We again loved our stay on this beautiful farm, with warm, welcoming and efficient staff, beautiful surrounds, fine cuisine and wine, and the option of a relaxed stay with a variety of options to enjoy from walks to biking, boating to game drives.

Room Tip: The suite separate from the main house, offrers space, privacy and lovely views

We stayed at the charming Wild Olive House, a separate 3 bedroom cottage with own garden and swimming pool and very private. We enjoyed all our meals at the Farmhouse. You have the option to rent this cottage on a self catering basis or on a full board basis. The game drives was very interesting and informative we have learned a lot about the Renosterveld and geometric tortoises. I have to disagree with the previous review regarding the food options. When we made our booking we had to inform Bartholomeus Klip Farmhouse about our dietary requirements. During High Tea in the afternoon the evening's menu was discussed with every patron to check if they eat everything that was offered on the menu. It there was something on the menu that you did not like an alternative was offered. The food was gastronomic and only the freshest ingredients is used. The Homestead have a colonial feel and the standards of service are impeccable. Beautiful gardens and tranquil setting. Only about an hour's drive from Cape Town.

Room Tip: Request the Wild Olive House, spacious and very private

We escaped the city for 1 night of luxury. Service and the room and setting were great.
Dinner could have been better. There should have been another one or two choices on the menu because the two main courses on offer might not be to everyone's taste.
Breakfast and high tea were great

Having spent 5 nights at Bartholomeus Klip, we found that it exceeded all our expectations. It is difficult to describe a luxury guest house on a farm which, at the same time as offering safaris twice a day, offers 5 star comfort and level of service. To make it even more attractive, the food is imaginative and plentiful. The brunch buffet is exceptional, high tea is generous and dinner is a gourmet meal. Every member of staff is extremely attentive with great attention to details from the ponchos provided for the safari to flowers, biscuits and drinks provided in the bedroom. We look forward to experiencing it all again soon.

Room Tip: The 5 rooms are all very nice however the suite with its own terrace has more privacy and it also overlooks the reserve.

This was our seventh visit and everything is still perfect. Food was excellent, location spotless, animals interesting and the rest perfect. We have rebooked for 2012 and are looking forward to the sundowners on the terrace after the game ride. This is a dream place run by a dream team.
This time we saw lots of baboons coming down to the reservoir and we had fun chasing flocks of birds from the island with our boat. They didn't take much notice as they flew back again in a few minutes - but it kept us amused. And we have a collection of photos of African sunsets - they made even my photography look good!

Room Tip: They are all good.
