This was our second visit to Bosheuvel and what a disaster. This time around we had no hot water on the Sunday morning. Although they apparently turned on the geyser the water was still cold that morning. On Sunday evening when we returned to the...room there was no water at all. I went to the room they suggested we use and it also had no water. The manager (Paddy) told me that he does not know why there is not water and isn't a plumber. There was some fighting that broke out downstairs and staff advised us that it was not safe to go down as I wanted to speak to management. We packed our bags and left the hotel at 9pm that night. We still have had no contact from the establishment to find out why we left. The menus was very disappointing as well as they ran out of this and that. There was no cheese, no burger patties etc. How do you cater for guests if you have no food?! There was also some Karaoke that broke out at the beer tent with only staff participating and it sounded AWEFUL. Some of the staff really tried but it seems as if the place is only a playground for the owner and his subjects so there was obviously no attention to anything like upkeep and what to feed guests.More

My Partner and I had the most horrific experience to date. We go away frequently to various establishments. This venue is completely run down. We had to walk into the establishment with no lights. When we got into the room allocated to us it was...absolutely freezing. We tried to use the air conditioner to warm up the room didn't work. My Boyfriend then wanted to shower to warm up but it was just a trickle. So we both decided that we weren't happy with the establishment. The photos on the site were clearly very old. So we told the one staff member that we weren't happy and that we were going to leave. About 10 minutes later there was a knock on the door. Before we could get to the door someone was pounding on the door. When we opened the door thee were 3 big Men at the door. The owner Mitch Van Bos became extremely aggressive with us. Asked us what was wrong with the room. We explained that it wasn't what we expected. He started yelling at us. Told us he knows the likes of people like us and that we are trying to do a runner. He and the other 2 Men became extremely threatening and demanded that we pay or they will not allow us to leave. So my Boyfriend paid in cash. My Boyfriend and I we're terrified and tried to calm them down. They also had a dog with them. I told them that they've made a huge mistake in threatening us. Mitch then told us they will hunt is down and kill us. I had a lot of bags so did my Boyfriend so I used my suitcase wheels out to go down a very long staircase. Mitch then became aggressive again and told my Boyfriend that he's going to sue him for damaging the concrete staircase. This has put us off going to venues and I was so traumatized I had a major panic attack. I'm going to open up a case with the Police as this is totally unacceptable. This venue needs to be taken off all sites for accommodationMore

Cattleman’s Restaurant IS good value written all over it! It’s the best steak I’ve had! I had a fillet with mash potatoes and veggies! They have their own Craft Beer, simply fabulous! @R125 for a steak with staech and veggies, you cannot beat this! A...little gem off the road but simply follow the little boards! Relaxed farm vibe! Super cool with Live music and the kids can swim! Great Service too, staff “Welcomes You HOME”, 5 ***** Stars!!!!More

What a great venue. The rooms are more than awesome. Anyone doing business in Jhb and Midrand area, just do yourself a favour and book with Mitch. Best steak I've had in my life...en ek is n boertjie, eet baie vleis!

Great place away from the standard areas in the area. Love the great environment with the live stock on the premises. The food is great, perfectly prepared and fresh but the portions are a bit small. If you are looking for a place that is...not like the standard and different this place is it.More

Bosheuvel country estate is off the beaten track and worth exploring. The moment you drive through the gates the city feeling is left behind; cattle around; wide open spaces and friendly faces everywhere. There's a deli on the premises, but they had a limited offering...on the day. The restaurant area is vast, with tables outside or inside. Order from a menu that includes a taste of everything - from breakfast, to cafe type food to big meals (including grills) I opted for the biltong and blue cheese salad; the biltong was out of stock and it was replaced with beef strips. A delicious meal, packed with feta cheese, blue cheese, olives, salads and beef strips Assistance was friendly and efficient. Definitely a place worth visiting!More

Where invited with friends for a dinner. What a perfect evening it was. The food is absolutely brilliant in a chilled farm style setting. We have been back a few times and it remains fantastic. When you seated you get some home styled salt and...vinegar chips to enjoy with your drinks of choice. The food is well priced and quality is exceptional You can even book a braai if that’s your preferred choice or a picnic. Deli will arrange the necessary. At a very decent price. Weddings and parties can also be hosted. I the waiters are polite and knowledgeable. They also understand you there to chill. They not destructive in your chill time. But just seem to know when you need them too. Excellent well priced restaurant with the beautiful farm feeling. Cows chicken etc. this must be my favorite in gauteng. Chilled vibe with amazing food. Also you could even stay overnight if you wish. Go visit. You will not be sorry. Looking forward to hearing your responses to my review.More

Been to Bosheuvel numerous times & food was always good. They usually give you a complimentary bowl of home potato crisps. Today, nothing. When asked, waiter said crisps were off. However, all the other tables got a bowl and appeared to be enjoying them. To...top it off we got charged R12 for one extra slice of white toast. Will be a while before we go back.More

Good food, rustic atmosphere and good service. The deli was a bit of a disappointment and could be so much more. Nice venue with lots of potential.
