We enjoyed the lovely farm atmosphere and the friendly staff. A lovely breakfast was enjoyed. The room was well presented and provided a memorable sleeping experience Certainly a must for our next visit.

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.

I traveled to Oudtshoorn for a meeting, Berluda is a little out of town but it's worth the short drive, it's very peaceful. They have a great restaurant, serving ostrich scrambled eggs for breakfast :-). The staff were friendly and accommodating.

We stayed two nights in one of the cottages on a private tour with a small group in September 2016. We had a Brai on the first night and although I didn't think we would, we tried the Ostrich steaks - and they were marvellous!!

We had a roomy and comfortable bungalow, with a lovely outlook. Perhaps a little tired, but this did not detract from our enjoyment. Good air conditioning, corner bath and the largest shower that I have ever seen! Meals in the main house were good.

Lovely place, we had a lovely room, in the bathroom they had wonderful rooibos products. I wasn't very impressed with a very rushed breakfast in the morning because apparently they had a conference that day. But otherwise very good value for money overall.
