My sister Marie and my niece Jenny and myself stayed here for four nights. absolutely a beautiful place. the rooms were very clean and spacious. A very good breakfast and the staff were very friendly and looked after us very well. the owner was very helpful looking up places to eat and visit. The elephant sanctuary a must. it is a bit of a drive to Plettenberg, but this is not a problem. we would definitely highly recommend it and if ever down that way again would stay. bonus was their lovely dogs, so nice and friendly. so quiet and peaceful.

We stayed for 1 night as we toured the garden route and the rooms were spacious, clean and very comfortable. The owner and staff were very friendly and breakfast was excellent. The house is situated a couple of km down a gravel road and the nearest place for an evening meal is a good 15 minutes drive away. There is no air conditioning and on the night we stayed the overhead fan in our room did not work. To be fair the owner offered to change our room but we had already settled in at that point. We would definitely stay again

The hotel was very comfortable and the hostess couldn't have done more to make our stay enjoyable. Particularly enjoyed the pools especially the infinity pool which looked over a lake full of lilies.It is a lovely area and thoroughly recommend a trip to the Bramon wine estate

We stopped at Buffelsdam on the way between Cape Town and J-bay and our stay could not have been better! Wonderful view of the countryside, great hosts, clean, awesome breakfast! And just about 20 min. from Bloukrans Bridge!

I stayed here with my parents and partner for two nights and couldn't really fault the accomodation - beautiful! The owners were incredible - helpful, friendly, happy to have a chat and a laugh and made us feel at home. Not to mention the resident dogs! The breakfast was amazing and the accommodation feels quite immersed in nature - lovely.

The great location of the property with its stylish architecture and friendly reception immediately surprised us, that we stayed longer than planned. We turned off in passing, so to speak, and drove into the path to Buffelsdam. This was one of the best decision in the past years of our visits to ZAR.

We had some wonderful days at Beth‘s place. There are very good restaurants right next to Buffelsdam and our very special highlight was the braai at Buffelsdam with the Family and some of their friends. Enjoy your stay!
