The luxurious and opulent rooms in the lodge and the private chalets are each tastefully decorated with every effort made to ensure our guests' comfort. Each unit has a unique theme inspired by the magnificent surroundings. Start your day with a hearty breakfast and end off with a wander through the wine cellar where you can select a bottle of your choice before heading up to experience excellent cuisine in our plush diningroom with its special ambiance.

Everything we expected and more. Wonderful location, peaceful, tranquil and very relaxing. The staff were excellent and very helpful. There is plenty to do in the local area, hiking, mountain biking etc.. or you can do what we did and relax in the hot tub overlooking the forest with a glass of wine..or two :-) A prepared picnic at the Otter lookout, and finish off with a relaxing braai all prepared for you and brought to your chalet with your choice of meats etc. Would highly recommend.

We enjoyed our stay at the Fernery a lot! Especially the location on the edge of the gorge and close to the ocean is great. We had done the Dolphin Trail and enjoyed the Sauna afterwards a lot. Thank you!
