This converted farm is a bit country style, dark furniture, plastic armchairs,but a spacious room with all normal facilities. The restaurant was closed the first night but a mini bus from a restaurant took us and brought as back so we did not have to drive. The breakfast was good and service willing. The dinner we had was a buffet...

Country Lodge is located between town and Cango Cave. Quiet place to stop. Nice garden. Rooms are spacious. Furniture seems to be antique and fits nicely with the character of old farm house. Tea and coffee station in room. Fridge, safe, hair dryer and free wifi. Restaurant on site. Food is good, service average but very friendly. Staff needs to...

First impressions are charming, white washed buildings in pretty gardens. We had a nice sized room with all amenities, a large bathroom and a big balcony overlooking the garden. Good air con, hot water, tea and coffee. Dinner and breakfast was limited choice but nice quality. (Mussel soup delicious) The staff were helpful and nice but it felt as though...

Nicely located in an old farmstead. Had a large suite comprising bedroom, hallway with desk, bathroom with walk-in shower and separate WC/washroom. Very comfortable bed but some maintenance issues. Meals were buffet style with a limited choice – tasty but not haute cuisine. Useful place for an overnight stay with our tour group but there are probably better options in...

Arriving from Cape Town we found the piece of heaven tucked away off the road. The colonial style rooms, white washed and nicely decorated and using original timber beams. The carefully laid out garden is a sight for tired eyes. Staff friendly and a great buffet dinner. Breakfast was good, offering a large selection of fruit salad and good strong...

5 hours drive from Cape Town makes this a very handy place to stop on the Garden Route. The only resemblance to the original 1890's stable in our spacious comfortable and charming country style room was a 2 section stable door entrance. Sitting on the private patio at sunset and enjoying the peaceful garden view while sipping a sundowner after...

We stayed here for 1 night while travelling along the Garden Route. The accommodation was lovely, we had a large bedroom and bathroom. Everything was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. On arrival we were told that the restaurant was not open that night, but they could provide a taxi into Oudtshoorn to the Black Swan restaurant. We...

This delightful guest house accommodation is worth the short trip from Oudtshoorn. The guest house is set in beautiful gardens complete with a swimming pool. The accommodation, dining and bar areas are well presented and maintained. Our room was a converted stable, complete with stable door. The rustic charm of the room was memorable, although the ceiling height is quite...

We stayed here for one night as part of the Garden Route tour and wished we could have stayed longer. The accommodation has a rustic charm to it. We stayed in Room 7 which led off from a delightful sitting room which was shared with two other rooms. There is a rusticity about the accommodation so don't expect perfection but...

17 Sep – Garden Route – This is a nice guest house and is worth a one night stay as after the caves there is not a lot more to do around here. The lounge dining area is very nice but the food is unremarkable. 3/5
