fantastic! It was everything we wanted and a lot more! good value for money and the surrounding attractions, the location was perfectly placed. The addition of bathtub would perfected it instead of a shower or maybe both. TV Chanels please add more channels,they were very limited. There was an issue with the gates to go in and out of the stay but got sorted the next day. We had an issue with the keys at the door, it was not user friendly! Next time it would be nice to have to be taken through it for ease of access

Eldorado Private Collection always delivers what is expected of excellent self-catering accommodation. This was our third stay there and have identified it as a preferred accommodation provider when visiting Oudtshoorn. The rooms are always neat and clean and fully equipped with all the necessary utensils and items to make it a comfortable and relaxed stay.

This place is really stunning..I am definitely coming back here !! My kids loved there room, having there own tv as well as the freedom playing around ...this place is so safe.
The location is perfect as it's on route to the cango caves , ostrich farm as well as rust in vrede waterfall.
The only thing that bothered me a little is you only get 15 units of electricity for the weekend and if you are over then you need to pay the balance ... considering the electricity increase 01 July 15 units really little as there is Aircon facilities as well as an wash machine.
Other than that I enjoyed my stay ❤️

Rooms are neat and clean, and it's accessible. But the walls are paper thin, and the neighbours have a string of female guests in and out of their room until 3.30 in the morning, which means zero sleep. And when you tell management, they say everything is under control. Nothing is under control. Never going back.

From booking that was without hazzle to checking in, it was a pleasant experience. Reception staff knows their trade and was very inviting. Room was excellent and spot less. Cleaning staff was always helpfull and dressed very neatly and for me also from a uniform environment, this is complimentable, especially in South Africa today.

Its a safe, beautifully arranged to detailes, small apartment/attached house with nice garden within a safe complex with swimming pool. We came at 14 exactly at the start of checkin time and the room wasn’t ready. We got a complementary bottle of champagne by the pool while they prepared the room which they did 5 minutes later. There is a nice barbecue in the garden. In the morning we could choose for breakfast in bed which was great. We enjoyed our stay, even if ir was short. Definitely recommended !

The staff was very accommodating to most of our needs. Since we stayed at the Superior Suite it was equipped with a bar fridge. The staff allowed us to put some of our fridge/freezer items in their fridge at reception. When we called reception they were always very friendly and tried to accommodate us to the best of their ability. I'm only giving 4 and not giving 5 stars to them because we wish they were more proactive in sending cleaners at an appropriate time. Our second day no cleaning service was provided at all. However the staff acknowledged it and apologized. Overall it was a good stay.

A team of our employees stayed there and enjoyed every minute of it.
They have stayed in various locations and this was one of the best accommodation places ever.
We will definitely return to El Dorado when we work in the area again.

Good morning.

Our stay at El Dorado was amazing. Everything you needed was in the house including an iron which I found amazing. It was relaxing comfortable and neat and tidy. I will recommend this accommodation to anyone. Really amazing setup. Just one thing if aircons can be put in the other 2 rooms as well as it gets extremely hot. Thank you.

Kids had swimming gala right next to El Dorado. Therefore perfect location. Staff helpful, will have to dig deep to criticize! High quality interior finishes, with aircon, ceiling fan, lovely stoep and braai, even 'bright green' lawn!
Will book again.
