We had a thatch roof chalet. The room had air conditioning, hairdryer, and coffee/tea station. the bathroom needs updating. free wifi available in rooms. The food was ok. It had a swimming pool, childrens play area, and garden area. The location is so so

Room Tip: Ask for chalets they are different.

Quant little hotel, easy to find. Parking under shade netting. Room clean and tidy, bed comfortable. Large flat screen tv with DSTV. Free wifi however I battled to connect saying incorrect password continuously so I eventually gave up. Extra plug next to bed which is very helpful when charging laptop while working. One thing I did miss is fridge, especially considering heat in Oudtshoorn it would have been nice to have an ice cold complimentary bottle of water awaiting me. Not your usual "hotel" setup, more of a "lodge" feel, some rooms are rondawels and other (where I stayed) 4 single story "rooms" in a row. (Refer picture). Leaving before 7 am breakfast so reception has arranged for a breakfast snack to be packed which is a nice touch. They offer supper in the restaurant which I didn't have and there is apparently a bar. My only complaint is the noisy neighbors who were up most the night slamming doors and having a royal party, and eventually after 2 am snored me awake. I would stay here again if I was with my family but when I travel for business I enjoy the "hotel" setup and feel which offers more privacy and sleep.

Our tour group of 30 people stayed here for one night. The hotel is made up of 16 rondavel round chalets and some terraced cottages. People in the rondavels enjoyed their stay, those in the chalets less so. I was in chalet 17 and it was rustic to say the least. Bathroom was tiny and desperately in need of an update. It was so small the sink is actually in the bedroom area and looks very utility. The room had a stable type door of 2 parts and I struggled to open it from inside and out. Wifi was supposedly available in reception but none of us were able to connect. We had a buffet dinner and breakfast and they were both excellent.

It might seem like it is in the middle of nowhere and a long way from town (it is), but the property is quaint, delightful and spending the night in a typical African rondele with a pointed thatch roof, is certainly a treat. Basic accommodations and only a few rooms available. Excellent breakfast buffet and the BBQ dinners out by the pool are exceptional! Internet is available thruout the property but weak signal, and unless your room is located close to the main reception house, you probably won't connect at all.

Room Tip: Ask for a rondele close to the reception area to ensure an internet connection

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2016

The staff was friendly and the hut itself was quaint, but there was no heat in our room which left it ridiculously cold. It was so uncomfortably freezing in our room that we only spent time there when it was absolutely necessary. Also, the wifi connection in the room was very poor and led to difficulty doing research on things to go/places to see in Oudtshoorn. Only stay at this hotel in the summer time or you will be sorry.

Good Morning

I truly regret not having been able to meet your expectations, and though I am not able to undo the negative impression received, I would highly appreciate if you would give us another chance to prove to you, that we can do much better than what you recently have experienced with us.

I am concerned why the room was cold. We do have air-conditioning in all our rooms and they can do heating. We are working on the Wi-Fi connection at the moment.

I’ve brought your feedback under our owners attention, and sincerely hope that if you accept our apology, the next time you stay with us we would improve to your satisfaction and quality delivery.
