What a beautiful warm cozy hotel and delicious food. Rooms warm and comfortable. All guests can take beautiful walks, game drives to National Addo Elephant Park, tennis, relax and read a book or enjoy the on-site Spa for a massage. Soak up the sunsets from your own patio. Can highly recommend.
We visited the village and had a beer or two great location if you can visit on a Sunday for the famous lunch we missed out as we didn’t finish our hike until 3 pm We also completed the 13 km walk/ hike it was fantastic a great hike The road in was wet after overnight rain a little tricky but worth the effort
Zuurberg is a beautiful hotel with a lot of authentic historical decor. That said, in modern times, there are a number of facilities/service levels that need to be met. The team there, from Barbara that greets you and check you in, to the waiter team are exceptional and really attentive. The rooms were large and well equipped with a real homely feeling to them. The food at both breakfast and dinner was exceptional (although some of the equipment needs an upgrade) Some items that pull down the overall experience: 1. The road up to the hotel is a challenge and unpleasant. It isn't in the hotels control but makes going out on excursions unpleasant as you have 20-30min of poor dirt road in and out each time. 2. Lunch - we didn't get lunch before our game drive as the kitchen was overwhelmed, the number of chefs was insufficient 3. wifi - its free and works in the main building, but at the village (stand alone chalets), there is no wifi, a problem if your a tourist without data 4. no TV in the room, however this is often the case in game reserves to keep you focused on the experience 5. no hot water - the geyser apprently trips regularly and most of the guests at breakfast didn't have hot water. 6. Game drive - its very cold in the evenings and the blankets provided are very thin. Something like a Snuggle blanket would help. 7. I would put extra milk in the room, there is only enough for one round of tea/coffee 8. the aircon (for heating) was very noisey and didn't cope…
The hotel is located close to the main gate at Addo Elephant park, a short, beautiful trip up the pass into the mountains. The main building is traditional and full of character. We stayed in the villas which are very comfortable. The service is exceptional. Thanks for a great stay and look forward to coming back when we are next in South Africa
Beautiful historical lodge , with fireplaces , and amazing scenery and lovely gardens . a Really nice place to stay. Service and food very good, staff very friendly , rooms comfortable. Nice to be high up in the mountains !
What a magical place set up in the clouds. Gorgeous views, incredible food and wonderful hospitality. This is such a special place and one cannot leave without feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. The rooms are well appointed and the views are spectacular. The garden is a mystical place full of secret paths and little fairy nooks - a child’s imaginations paradise. The staff are second to none I’ve ever experienced. The food is straight from the heart of the Eastern Cape. In a world filled with hustle and bustle do yourselves a favour and step into this enchanting world - you’ll be reminded of what life is actually all about!
Lovely setting, and lovely old hotel (with newly re-furbished rooms) lots of historical charm. Great service attention from the staff. We enjoyed our overnight stay and were very comfortable. Thank-you
Best nights sleep I've had all week. Bed of clouds. Thank you to Anthony, Beatrice, Rochelle and Team for their wonderful hospitality, delicious food and to die for desserts. Special shout out for the green beans and butternut soup! The aircon and pool were much needed in this humidity. Thank you times a million!
An amazing and relaxing weekend, excellent and friendly service, the most delicious meals. Will definitely recommend Zuurberg Mountain Village to anyone who feels like they need a little bit of heaven!
Wonderfully peaceful with a beautiful outlook. Staff go out of their way for you and are very friendly. Spacious bedrooms and bathroom with an inside and outside shower. Food is delicious. Lovely fireplace in the lounge for cold weather.
