What a 💎 GEM. From communication before arrival, to our greeting, evening fire, wonderful sleep, and early morning departure, Cultivar was all I hoped it would be. I especially appreciated with wonderful staff, clean and spacious rooms with NO television. The grounds and scenery were top notch, encouraging outdoors, fellowship, and an escape from this crazy world. I will be back!!

All the staff who we interacted with were friendly which gave the place a homely feel. It is a beautiful spot with lovely views. We stayed in a deluxe room which had a lovely little patio and was elegantly decorated with a touch of the olde world. We enjoyed lovely coffee and and a full english breakfast in the quaint and beautifully decorated breakfast room before leaving.

I stayed with my daughter for the long weekend. Staff were friendly and very helpful. I loved sitting around the pool while my daughter swam, sipping some beautiful wine with a beautiful view. Our room was lovely and we found a game we'd never seen before and played our own made up version in the evening.

Delia, Ulandi & Cara - thank you so much. These ladies very kindly went out of their way to return something to me that I’d left at the lodge. I really appreciate the kindness and generosity of the staff at Cultivar.

The property is nice enough but the rooms are disappointing. We stayed in the pinotage room. There is no TV and the Wi-fi is not fast enough for streaming. The kettle and pod machine share a plug and are awkwardly low to the ground. The bathroom door is a slider and doesn’t completely close making privacy difficult. There is a picture hanging from a plug point on the wall, without any hook, reflecting the lack of attention to detail in the room. The staff are the highlight and Barney was particularly helpful. Beautiful views from the rooms that have patios.

Dear Lloyd, Thank you for your review, we value negative and positive feedback as we strive to better every guest experience. We are sad to hear that you found the room inadequate as many of our previous guests would disagree. At Cultivar we encourage our guests to unplug and unwind in the beautiful setting and therefor opted to not have televisions in our rooms and subsequently do not advertise that we do. It would have been helpful if you brought the issue regarding the wifi to our attention immediately so that we could have done some troubleshooting during your stay. Normally the wifi is quite fine for streaming, it could be that there may have been a fault at the time you have stayed with us. We acknowledge that there was a multiplug missing at the tea/coffee station which has now been replaced. Lastly the picture is put up with two sided tape and not hanging from a plug. You have mentioned that the staff was the highlight of your stay, thank you! Our small team (due to the COVID epidemic) works extremely hard to ensure that every guests stay is special, yes sometimes we drop the ball and mistakes are made but it makes us super happy when we receive this kind of feedback. It is highly appreciated. We hope to welcome you again! Kind regards The Cultivar Team
