We stayed in cabin nr 5. The moment you stop there the river and nature is just SO AWESOME! The dogs loved it, we could walk the farm and fish and the outdoor braai overlooking the river is pure bliss. IT IS REALLY A GEM OF A SPOT! That said - The inside of the cabin is functional and we had everything we needed. The mattress however need to be replaced - it is rock hard and you keep rolling to the center...i suspect it is just old. The linen also have turned yellowish from age. The bathroom is good and have all you need - just look past the black silicone around the edges. I would love to go back but would unfortunately think twice as i would like to have a good nights rest.

We stayed at Olifantskrans for 4 nights mid-week, just after the Wacky Wine Weekend, so we had the place to ourselves, except for one other couple, which Lynne thoughtfully placed at the other end of the line of cabins, giving us both total privacy and peace :). The single bedroom cabin was very clean and functional, the bed was comfortable, with high-end linen and pillows and our god-send in the middle of a chilly Winter: electric blankets! The shower room is in need of a little TLC but the shower itself was fantastic - hot, steady temperature and powerful. We braai'd on two of the nights and utensils and wood (at R22 a bag, it's cheaper than town) are provided and a nice lady came on Wednesday and cleaned the braai, changed the towels and dishcloths, as well as emptying the firepit in the yard, which we used one evening - a great idea to keep the cold at bay, especially when it's paired with a big glass of lovely local red wine! When the fire dies down, you can venture back inside the little lounge/diner/kitchenette, where an oil heater warms the small space efficiently. Each cabin is situated right on the river (which was in full flood, a welcome sight after the drought) and surrounded by a small gravel yard - a great idea when you have a small spaniel who loves to explore; at least we could let him out on his own into the yard without worrying he would run off. We stayed in cabin 6, which I think is the best one - it's near the end of the line so would be quieter when the resort is full (which it is most weekends throughout the year) and has the biggest yard. The communal grassy area between the cabins and the river is well maintained, one day it was positively hot and we sat out on the grass, this time with a cold Chardonnay, and listened to the river while we read our books - heaven! The only down-side are the extensive roadworks throughout Robertson, Ashton and Bonnivale. You can't escape them if you want to do some wine-tasting or have a leisurely lunch and the delays can be long and frequent, which could be frustrating if you're in a hurry (which we weren't!). The R317 runs along the top of the rocky outcrop opposite the cabins and there is a stop/go system in place for the roadworks on that particular section - beware opening your curtains in the morning in case there is a roadworker catching the early morning breeze, looking down onto the cabins!

The two bedroom cabins we stayed in during February 2018 was absolutely perfect for us. Each room had it own bathroom which was an added bonus. Besides the stairs up to the cabin which my 78 year old mom managed just fine , the cabin and location was perfect. We arrived on a Monday and left on a Friday and almost had the whole place to ourselves. Despite the drought , we still got to swim in the river and even when it rained , we enjoyed the braai and patio area. This is definitely a place worth visiting. Be careful of the mountain bike trail , the thorns are hug and we had punctured on our first ride out. The road works in Robertson and Bonnievale is a bummer , but it is worth the trouble. We will definitely be going to back when the river is in full flow.

Except for once, in16yrs i might add, we have always loved our weekends at ORC! (the once was due to very noisy day time visitors) The sound of birds & water...tranquility...is exactly what is needed when breaking away from a busy city life. ORC is situated on a private farm & the perfect place for birdwatchers. The cabins are very well positioned on the riverbank, overlooking the river & orchards on the other side. It is spacious & clean. Good quality linen is used & the beds are very comfortable. Danie & Francine Conradie, the hosts are friendly, accomodating & always willing to go that extra mile! Looking forward to the next time!
