We chose Berluda to host a family weekend for my mom's 70th birthday. What an absolutely magical experience. Every detail was exactly how I'd imagined such a special occasion to be, from the quaint Schoemanshoek dorpie to the luxury cottages, beautiful Karoo views, delicious food, friendly service and peaceful atmosphere. Cindy, chef Bunzi and team could not do enough for...

Stayed in one of the two honeymoon cottages. Room was rustic, shabby chic that was very big with large bedroom, bathroom and kitchen area. We were one of only a few guests staying on site with the remote location of the cottages away from the main farm building making it feel slightly eerie (but this is by no means a...

We spent one night at Berluda with an early departure planned so our time to enjoy the farm was limited. Our room was very clean and the bed comfortable. The bathroom was well appointed with nice towels. There were no gowns / slippers / hand cream which we thought was standard in a 4-star B&B (having just come from a...

I actually wanted to move our booking to a week later but i'm still waiting for a response to that email. Strange how people selectively answer emails. We had a pleasant stay at Berluda nonetheless. The appliances are a bit outdated and doesn't match the decor. The bathroom is also a bit old-fashioned and there weren't seals on the basin...

Dear Guest I would like to shortly answer all your comments: 1) we have a full time reservations manager. Sometimes mail ends up in the junk folder. 2) seals not in basin are unacceptable - sorry about that. 3) appliances - at least they were working 4) the current shower heads were installed for 2 reasons: to filter the lime...

Great getaway spot on the outskirts of Oudtshoorn. We had a very pleasant stay, the staff were friendly (the chef especially, always had a smile and time to chat). Rooms were comfortable and clean. Plenty of activities for everyone to enjoy.
