We stayed for 3 nights. the cottages are basic but clean and had all the required soft touches. Pitty about the main road so clode to the cottages but that said in is not a busy road. The view makes up for it. The pool is nice but not practical in front of the restaurant and

A beautiful drive from Hermanus and then you pop out at Black Oyster Catcher. Cottages are cute and comfortable although a bit basic. Restaurant serves great food at very affordable prices. Be sure to book - they get very busy. The breakfast was superb! We were lucky to spot s

Bad experience from the start. One expects some type of reception but there was nobody in charge of the cottages. Luckily the wine tasting manager was there. He handed over a key and didn't even point out where the cottage was. The cottage was not clean and the shower, sink,

Hi Foodie12392, thank you for taking the time to review the Black Oystercatcher Cottages. And we apologise that you felt we did not meet your expectations during your stay, and for any miscommunication regarding where your cottage is located. Our Wine Tasting Manager explained which cottage you were booked in to. We find our guests generally prefer to arrive and unpack their bags in privacy. So apologies that you would rather have been accompanied. Cleanliness is very important to us. So your complaint is indeed one we take extremely seriously. We offered to move you to another cottage after hearing this serious complaint, but you declined the offer. We also offered to serve a glass of wine to you at the restaurant while we ensure the cottage really does meet the standards we set for every visit we receive. This was also declined. We really enjoyed chatting to you the next morning at breakfast - and thank you for the kind comments regarding your restaurant visit. It seemed at the time that you had enjoyed your stay. Every complaint of this nature is taken seriously, and we always work to improve our service. Kind regards, The Black Oystercatcher team

A lovely new restaurant on site with stunning menu and views over the valley. Food was delicious and the cheese boards were just enormous ( if you like cheese board you must go). Service was good and waiter helped you understand which wine to order with your chosen meal. A bit

"Very quiet area."
"Choose cottage 1 or 4 for a fireplace."
"Two of the rooms have in-door fireplaces, in winter it would be good to ask for one of those!"
"All the rooms are the same, a unit at the end might be more quiet as you will only have neighbours on one side."
"Corner rooms have a inside fire-place for winter!! Nr. 1 & 4."
