Very pictueque location the rooms were clean and comfortable. Great place to visit for hiking or to relax. The staff were all friendly and helpful and Brian was even took me for a walk around the hills. The food is excellent with a 5 course evening meal included in the price.

We absolutely loved our stay at Cleopatra’s! Such a warm and genuine welcome from each and every member of staff, they could not do enough to make our stay as special as possible. Bags carried by Amen to our warm and inviting room where everything was perfect in its own rustic way. The rooms are external to the main house but absolutely charming. Bed so comfy, snacks and drinks, lovely sitting area, fire ready laid. Great turn down service whilst we were having our evening meal and umbrellas helpfully provided (the rain was biblical!).

The food is mentioned by most of the reviews… and rightly so, it was so good! I was given the most delicious vegetarian options, for dinner and breakfast which was impressive as they had no prior notice (my diet requirements had not been passed on by the agents). The atmosphere was delightful and the visit to the wine cellar to choose wines for our meal was a delight.

Peace and quiet. Wonderful walks from the farmhouse. Canoeing on the small lake. All make our stay one of the best on our South African travels. The roads to reach the farmhouse were sometimes a bit rugged but worth every bump and pothole! Would not hesitate to recommend and would stay again in heartbeat… but would stay for longer if we came again!

Room tip: Stay for a minimum of 2 nights to make the most of your stay and to justify the bumpy roads to get there. We wish we had!

We visited Cleopatras Farmhouse several years ago and enjoyed it so much that we decided to visit again. We arrived on a rainy day and had a minor problem on the gravel road which is the last 5km to the farmhouse. I rang the farmhouse and they immediately sent a couple of men to assist us. Problem solved! The room was very comfortable with thoughful touches : fire lit whilst we were at dinner, bed warmed and some complimentary port. The food was great : this is definitely a reason to visit, but then so is the amazing scenery. There is also a spa where I enjoyed a massage.

We'd booked this lovely place back in January 2021, for November 2022. But 2 days ago the hotel has cancelled our booking because they have taken a booking for a larger group that wants a 'covid secure' environment. So our booking (in place since January 2021) has been cancelled to make way for the group that wants no other guests there. Our tour operator is trying to find an alternative but most other nearby places are now fully booked. It appears that we have been "dumped".

So I cannot comment on the accommodation or the food. But the business ethics are disappointing. South Africa deserves much better ambassadors than this.

Beautiful establishment with picture perfect gardens as if it was a movie set. Rooms are well furnished with everything you need. Staff are super attentive and always eager to go the extra mile.

The downfall for me was the food! Apparently the previous night ( Friday) was amazing, however they changed chef and Saturday’s dinner… I enjoyed the first two courses, the main was terrible! Left it aside.
Dessert was fine.

Breakfast, a disaster! All i ate was dried banana slices and a glass of hot water with lemon. My fruit had a hair in, my English muffin was doused in water from my poached egg - but wait! Who tops a poached egg with honey just mixed into mustard making it unbelievably sweet!?

I basically starved.

If you want good food check who is the chef please.
