We had a one night stopover and the place was ideal. Rooms clean and comfortable. Owners were very friendly and accommodating - we were able to braai and use their facilities next to the pool (using the meat we had brought with us). Glad to have found this spot!

There was a misunderstanding initially about the pricing of units, and I was a bit upset because it was more expensive than stated on the website, and out of our budget. We ended up going anyway, and I must say, you get what you pay for. The rooms are beautiful with high quality trimmings, bedding, etc. The host was efficient and accomodating and went out of her way to assist us.

Excellent with friendly service. I had my pup with me, and they went out of their way to accommodate. Rooms were clean and had everything one could need. The accommodation was easy enough to find and allowed for easy access and departure out of Kokstad.

We had to make an unexpected trip to Kokstad due to a death in the family. The website described the hotel as a four star space, with wifi-this was the most important factor as we both still had to work on Friday (remotely). We arrived in Kokstad on Thursday evening. As stated in the title, the staff were extremely friendly, from the cleaning crew to the reception/welcome people and chefs, everyone was very helpful, very accommodating, I can’t say enough good things about them. The room itself though was run down, faucets were loose, things provided in the room (kettle etc) were old and untidy and the lighting was very poor. All this I could have overlooked as it was a rushed trip. But there were a few unforgivable incidents. Two out of the three days, I had to have a cold water bath, it was extremely unpleasant. I spoke to Rita about it on the first day, she apologised and said they would check it out and so on the second day I had hot water but on the third and last day it was cold again. Load shedding had started, when we arrived the lady who welcomed us assured us that there was a generator and that they only don’t run it between 10pm- 5am. We were relieved that it wouldn’t affect our work schedule. However when our load shedding slot came up from 1-3:30 pm on Friday, the generator was not switched on and without the wifi we ended up missing an afternoon of work anyway. The owner, Rita, was not as friendly as her staff, unfortunately, as our room was right next to the office we could hear her (and we didn’t have to strain and listen because she doesn’t talk, she screams) talking rudely to and about clients. On Sunday, cold water again. When leaving we spoke to Roxanne, who I think is the manager, I told her about the cold water and she was extremely apologetic. I was appreciative of this as I could she that she was genuinely sorry we had an unpleasant experience and if that was the end I would have not felt compelled to write this review. But that was not the end, whilst saying our last goodbyes to our family my husband received a call from Rita. I took the call, when I tried to tell Rita the water was cold again that morning she assured me it wasn’t because she checked and the water was room temp. I told her that may be but when I showered it was cold, she insisted it was not cold (as though she showered with me and knew). That left a very sour taste and we will never go back to Oak Park.

A recent stay-over en route to Eastern Cape. Family room paid for - but only coffee cups for two. Only 3 out of 5 electric blankets worked and the second en suite shower did not work at all.
Not good given the price we paid. Would have liked to hear from owner after we gave them feedback.

We travelled to Kokstad for a family reunion. We stayed at Oak Park for three nights. We were welcomed warmly and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Oak Park is convenient and secure. We will definitely stay at Oak Park whenever we are in Kokstad. My one suggestion is to link the website directly with Tripadvisor to make booking easier. Excellent accommodation and value for money.

We stayed in the Family-room, which was very quiet (except a barking dog at the neighbours 🙄) and spacious. Nice pool, friendly staff and wonderful breakfast. We can recommend this place for all kind of travel.
