We made a mistake. We only stayed one night! We couple have stayed forever, it was such a lovely experience. Gin and tonics on the verandah, a walk in the garden, a leaf through the old books in the lovely library, a hot water bottle in the bed after a magnificent dinner in town. Dreams are made of this! Alison and her family have put their souls into Schoone Ordt over the last 20 years, and you owe it to yourselves to experience what they offer. Go and do it!

From the moment we entered the beautiful premises we were made to feel so welcome. Alison is a perfect, attentitive host and her staff are equally amazing. The rooms are beautifully presented with so much attention on comfort, decor and design. The gardens are lush and offers privacy and tranquility surrounding your rooms and outdoor patios. Breakfast and Dinner was tops. The service friendly and professional. An all round top class establishment , with a relaxed homely atmosphere. We were beyond impressed and look forward to our next stay in the near future. P.S. Did I mention tea and scones on arrival and cars washed the following morning? Just saying 😊 Big Thank You from Gail and Fred

An all round wonderful break. Food..fantastic. Staff...wonderful Hospitality...out of this world Helpfulness....nothing was too much trouble Seven stars would hardly be adequate! My wife and I were totally smitten with the whole experience. It appears Trip Advisor requires me to waffle on and write 200 characters. This is why I very rarely submit a review with them. In this instance it is worth making an exception.
