Located en route to the Cango Caves, De Oude Meul Country Lodge lies nestled at the foothills of the majestic Swartberg Mountains, in Oudtshoorn, Garden Route. The Lodge is situated in the beautiful Schoemanspoort, halfway between Oudtshoorn and the world famous Cango Caves on the R328. To overnight on this beautiful farm is an unforgettable experience. The lodge is surrounded by mountains, which together with the exotic plants of the Klein Karoo create a quiet serene atmosphere.

We always love to stay at De Oude Meul Country Lodge, but this time was not a good experience. We had guests next to us that did not consider other guests at the lodge. Management had great effort to control them.

I was super impressed with De Oude Meul. It was clean and well-organised. There were plenty of animals to see. It was only a one-night stopover for us on our way back to Cape Town. I work from home/anywhere and so will always comment on the wi-fi too if a place says that there is wi-fi available; and I managed to teach eight zoom classes perfectly!

We have, without any doubt, found paradise in the Karoo. With breathtaking nature all around to great accommodation and friendly staff. Breakfast is a little expensive - considering I'm 1.6cm, weighing 55kg, I will never be able to eat to the value of R145 per person. The restaurant does not fit the rest of the lodge - very average- with small portions, horrible tasting cappuccino and somewhat slow service considering we were only 1 of 2 tables. The lodge itself however is breathtaking. Pet & children friendly! It's amazing. We'll definitely be back :).

I am not satisfied. What was advertised on the internet was not what we got!! The breakfast was also cold. This was my first time ever that treated my partner to a "secret" night away and then the photos I got him excited with that I received on my email confirmation and the website was not the same. That was disappointing and looked like a lied and was stingy. I feel I was overcharged for what was advertised! Not happy women. And our room had at least 10 flies in it when we entered it, did not get a good feel with that.
