We spent three nights at Cosmos and very much enjoyed the friendly and supportive atmosphere. We are still thankful for the uncomplicated move to a room in the garden (which definitely created some extra coordination efforts for the management)!! We also want to highlight the cleanliness of the rooms and the estate and, most important, the friendliness of the staff at all times. We liked the breakfast with a good choice of fruits, muesli, joghurt but also fresh made eggs etc,. The day we had an early pick-up in the morning we received breakfast boxes with sandwiches, fruits, juices etc. - a really very good service! The dinner menue also provided a wide choice of dishes and we enjoyed both, food and atmosphere in the evenings. And also worth mentioning that our rental car received a car wash - much appreciated! Cosmos Cuisine is a nice spot close to the Addo Park, we´ld be happy to go there again at any time.

The staff were all very friendly and helpful nothing was to much to ask for. They arranged a quad drive for us which was a great day out. The 3-course dinner was amazing, prepared with so much love and plated with attention to detail. And, they wash your car without you even requesting it!

Very beautiful in a tranquil setting. Exceptional service from all staff member, extremely caring and attentive. The 5-course dinner was amazing, prepared with so much love and plated with attention to detail. The room we stayed at was very big with high quality furniture, very spacey and lovely garden views. Amenities and complimentary items (juice of arrival, sherry in the room & fruits) are a top up on the already outstanding service. Good parking facilities, valet service (yes they do wash your car without any hassle or even request; this means you will see your car shining like never before after check out). The garden is absolutely stunning and a place of pure peace and tranquility, having a walk through there is treating the soul more than any spa could ever. Thank you very much for an exceptional stay, authentic hospitality, a great meal and a service experience which is out of this world!

Guest house along a busy and noisy through road. Outdated but large rooms. Very small pool(plunge pool). Diner very dissapointing. Wines on winelist not available. No value for money. Deafening garden maintenance for 2 hours white all guests where relaxing in the garden.

If any accommodation merits a 4 star South African grading , it is Cosmos Cuisine: • It is ideally located at 10 minutes driving from Addo Elephant Park • The building is in a charming colonial style • The rooms are perfect and super clean, equipped with appropriate furniture • There is a beautiful lush garden • Dinner alone is a reason to stay at Cosmos: all fresh food and superbly prepared by the chef. It matches the better restaurants in Belgium and France. • Breakfast is second to none. • Family owned making you feel at home. • Very friendly and capable staff. It is no surprise that Cosmos Cuisine was Winner Luxury travel & Hospitality Guide in 2016, 2017 and 2018 , was chosen Samlam Top Destination awards Nominee 2016-2017, was Best Value -Accommodation Direct in 2015,2016,2017,2018 and received various other awards. Having travelled throughout the world, Cosmos is one of the few places we are happy to come back to.

If you don’t want to be anonymous in a hotel and prefer being welcomed as a guest in a cozy and intimate place then Cosmos Cuisine is made for you ! The staff is very friendly and helpful. They did a lot for us and if you are a foodie : try EVERYTHING on the menu ! We ate two times and took the three courses dinner. Every single plate was delicious and they mix traditional African food with simple vegetables. No chips but healthy and simple. The breakfast was also very nice. Our room was very clean and we liked all the little things and attentions in it : the little sherry carafe and the apples on the table, the towel heater and all the other small details.

We spent 1 night at Cosmos Cuisine and enjoyed our short stay. The staff and owners were very friendly and helpful and even „spontaneously“ arranged a birthday breakfast for my mum even though we hadn’t made any pre-arrangements. The lodge has a beautiful park-like garden with a little pool, which is nice to cool down a bit. The rooms we had were good, even though some of the furniture was quite old, but the bathrooms were freshly renovated. Only downside was the air condition in my room: it was way too noisy to have it run at night and the fan would only work with light switched on. The 3-course Dinner was absolutely delicious. It was the best food we had so far on our trip and well worth the price.

The "guest house" is situated aside to the federal highway. We had to wait about 10 minutes until a groundskeeper opened the gate. There were no other guests so we were recommended to dinner at the "Africanos" restaurant and Hotel. Because of lack of cleanliness we changed the room. The unfriendly maid deposited a bad, intolerable smelling deodorant behind the toilet pan. Ventilator did not work because they changed to ac. The spacious rooms have a porch to relax. The bed mats looked uncleaned and worn. Bathroom is spacious, too, but furnished with renewable items. Breakfast omelette was okay but toast and cereals were wishy-washy. All in one this lodging is to avoid! Have your breakfast and dinner at close by "Africanos" which is a fine hotel. Service there is excellent and the selection at the buffet or with the menu card is first class!
