We loved our stay here! Definitely 5 star treatment! They washed our car overnight (even though we only stayed one night) and dinner was one of the best meals of our trip. Wish we could've stayed longer but we will definitely be back!

Lovely room with balcony, pool, garden, the conservatory restaurant - breakfast and excellent dinners (the beef - wow!) and wine. But as is often the case, it was the people that made...

This was our second stay at Schoone Oord. This visit was even better than the first and exceeded all expectations. We were made to feel special on arrival. The room was charming and the fire burning when we arrived back from dinner was just so special. The breakfast was memorable. Definitely a place to return to.

We stayed at this hotel on an Illios tour. The hotel and service was amazing. The room and bed was extremely comfortable. The service at the hotel was above all expectations. The breakfast and dinner was excellent. I cannot recommend this hotel more highly.

We stayed here for one night on our way from Cape Town to the Eastern Cape. The place is wonderful and all the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The restoration has been carried out by the owners and they have done a brilliant job. We ate in the restaurant and the food was excellent. If we ever come to...
