Zuurberg Mountain Village is a haven of historical delight surrounded by wildlife and nature. Located high up on the spectacular Zuurberg Pass, it is a peaceful & truly unique mountain top retreat offering a variety of accommodation. Set in 160 hectares of indigenous vegetation, with breath taking views overlooking the Addo Elephant National Park, this 150-year-old hotel offers her guests elegance, style and quality. Equipped to international standards, the rooms ensure high levels of comfort, whilst gourmet food, friendly staff & a myriad of outdoor activities all add up to one thing – a stay to remember. An immense stone fireplace dominates the high-ceiling, gracious lounge where aperitifs are enjoyed around a log fire on chilly winter evenings. French doors lead to the pool where alfresco dining is enjoyed on balmy summer evenings. The cottages are arranged so that one can enjoy both the spectacular mountain and valley views.

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

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!

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!
