Stayed at the hotel for lunch. The atmosphere is really stunning! Staff is really friendly and helpful. Food was good! The new owner passed by to check if everything was ok. He explained that they have done renovations and that they will continue to upgrade the hotel! Will definitely come back here and stay over!

Only stayed one night at this hotel for business. For a well know Marriot establishment this little "Gold mine" needs a desperate refurbishment to be worthy of the brand. Breakfast was not included in the rate and guests needed to pay extra. Besides the friendly staff trying to make the stay more comfortable, the entire establishment infrastructure desperately need a...

I could tell you that the food was lovely – the staff seemed nice – the rooms were OK although some people complained of soiled sheets. However in the 2 hours we were at dinner in the hotel restaurant 3 of us had all our money stolen from our rooms, the rooms were not broken into so in my opinion...

We stayed at this hotel in January 2017, I found it to be a bit run down,not at all the quality of other Protea hotels we stayed in. The toilet in the room didn't flush consistently and whilst the reception staff did what they could the room was obviously in need of an update. Restaurant was very good.

We stayed two nights at this hotel and used it as a base to explore the Cango Caves, an Ostrich farm and also go on the Meerkat Adventure tour. The hotel is set out of town just off the main road in quiet grounds. It is comprised of a series of thatched conical roofed chalets with an individual bathroom, good...

We stopped over one night on a Garden Route Tour and were pleasantly surprised to be staying in one of the round thatched lodges that on first appearance looked really special. However on closer inspection, they would benefit from upgrading. Beds, linen and facilities were good but our carpet was heavily soiled and the bathroom in need of refurbishing to...

Spent one night here in January en route to Johannesburg. The hotel is fairly far out of town, if you don't want to eat in the hotel then you need to drive back into town.

We absolutely loved our one night stay. Staff were wonderful and the rooms were faultless. Very central to Cango Caves and Ostrich farms. Great on site restaurant, and the food was excellent! From booking to check out, very happy! Jessica in particular was amazing. Would highly recommend.

We stayed 2 nights here while visiting Oudtshoorn. We enjoyed the traditional hut room. It was spacious. We enjoyed lying on the lawn and looking at the starts. Waking up to the birds chirping in the morning was a magical experience. They have some equipment for kids too.
