Amazing rooms with superb view. Clean swimming pool. Cold beer and friendly staff and food service. Dinner and breakfast was amazing. Some of the best food we had on this holiday. Everyone went the extra mile for us

So pleasantly surprised by this hotel, a real hidden gem and so much better than you'd imagine as you pull off the road. Quality rooms, quality service, great food and a view to die for. Will definitely book again

Had to sleepover for next day business meeting. Everything went great . Was given one of the new rooms . Only problem could be DSTV remote doesn't work as receiver is behind the tv. Well that was the only fault . Well done and thank you

We spent 2 nights at Surval, and used all the facilities. In particular, the restaurant is excellent and service level provided by team lead Willem is outstanding. The view on the valley and mountain is a real pleasure.

The family suite we booked got turned into 2 seperate rooms (for which we were charged the difference). Well appointed rooms but far apart. Service was just unbelievably poor. At breakfast at 8am - ate by 9h40....

We had a super three night stay at this beautifully located olive estate. Our little lodge with terrace looking over the surrounding mountains was well appointed, clean and comfortable.

This hotel is a family hotel, not suitable for anyone wanting peace and quiet, and should be advertised as such. When we were there the small pool was monopolised by shouting splashing kids who also ran among the guests. (We were there at a weekend) That is the only complaint. The food was excellent, the staff very helpful, with a...

What a great surprise this place was! Wonderful location with views out towards the Groot Swartberge way off in the distance. Rooms a real treat with loads of space, great beds, well-designed and implemented bathrooms, top class linen and all the things you would expect from a 5 star establishment.

Selected this place at random and ended up having a lovely evening. Both of us ordered the crispy chicken breast with side salad with sweet potato and ginger soup to start. Food well cooked and staff charming and manager circulated amongst diners. Great views and open air dining available. Would recommend.

There is always a warm friendly welcome for me at Surval . The main building and grounds are designed with charm. The rooms are luxurious, with a rustic ambiance, a lovely mix of the old with the new. There are wonderful views from the pool area of the distant mountains.
