A lovely place to break your journey, recharge and taste genuine South African home style cooking. Comfortable and clean accommodation. The service was perfect in all respects. We have no complaints at all. Will definitely choose this as our future stop over.

I'm disappointed to say that I won't be booking a room at this place again for our stopovers to Cape Town. Upon arrival around 11PM, my husband and I were greeted by Collins, presumably the after-hours staff, who was friendly and helpful. However, the trouble began when we discovered that the bathroom hadn't been cleaned, with dried-up residue evident on the toilet and under the seat, along with a dirty shower and basin. We opted not to shower, use the bathroom, or even sleep under their sheets. My husband used our own towels, and I slept with my own throw. It was a worse experience than sleeping in the car! What a waste of money!

The rooms and the decor in and outside was very beautiful. I especially loved the green setting of the lodge. I would have preferred to have the choice of getting the cash instead of eating at the lodge. The overall stay was satisfying, however the meal choices were very limited and the preparation of the food was very poor at times.

The property has all the charm of its age and is tastefully decorated. It has a spacious garden to enjoy. The lockdowns seem to have taken their toll as the service is friendly but shaky. The recent rains after a long drought have exposed a few leaks that I am sure will be fixed. These were not an inconvenience. The coffee and rusks were a welcome addition. We had supper and breakfast there. the cooking was traditional farm cooking.

Old House Lodge is a little oasis in the town of Beaufort-West. We thoroughly enjoyed its old world charm in a tranquil setting with trees surrounding the pool in the garden. The hospitality and Karoo lamb under the stars made for a relaxed, yet top notch dinner.

The overall quality is poor. The staff is not capable to run a venue like the old house. It is ownerless and management is not existing. Across the road is a business that operates with noise from early hours in the morning (4:00). The Old house is oblivious of this with no excuse. If the country areas in South Africa is operating in this poor service manner they will not exist in the future.

I booked my stay on booking.com and needed to change the booking from one room to 2 rooms. The front desk lady by the name of Patricia was not only inadequate to guide me through the process of making the amendment to my booking, she was also arrogantly rude and without any tact or class or courtesy as one would expect. Patricia was downright rude and when i challenged her on her attitude she dropped the call why i was talking to her. For an establishment with otherwise pleasant and customer orientated staff, Patricia is blot on their reputation and in my view will result in them losing many many customers, including myself. My advice is for them to send Patricia on a customer service course and reprimand her to be more friendly, otherwise she is most definitely in the wrong industry.

From the online booking process to the friendly text welcoming me, the welcome on my arrival to the clean and comfortable room. The take-away meal delivered was tasty and on time. My overnight stay was lovely and I'll be back.
