Travelling from Gauteng to the Eastern Cape, the one night stay over was so nice. We are thinking of booking a weekend away at the hotel. Service is excellent and our room was great. We had supper at the restaurant and the food was great. Thank you for a lovely stay.

The dam is amazing as you drive over it and up on the hill is this great hotel. The suite was so nice, mini kitchen, lounge and had a great lawn area. The main room and ensuite was huge although there were no glasses or anything in the room which was strange as it was almost self contained (we had...

This is the third time we have overnight'd at de Stijl en route to East London. A beautiful oasis in the karoo. Accommodation is lovely and pet friendly. Staff are very pleasant and always happy to assist you. The restaurant is overpriced and overrated. However there is no other choice of anywhere else to eat. I will definitely stay at...

Booked a weekend trip at the hotel. Friendly staff and nice room with quality furniture. Hoped we would get a room with a better view over the dam, ours looked out more over the entrance and you had to go on the balcony to see the dam. Next time we would ask to book room 217 or 218 of the...

Beautiful location with stunning views over the dam. Staff very friendly. Rooms large and quality of beds excellent. Decor ideas very good but execution of finishes lack finesse. Some of the furniture in the room was a little shabby. Bathroom pretty basic. Restaurant did not have all the items on the menu available. But overall a pleasant stay.

What an awesome gem!! This is an excellent hotel with an amazing view over the Gariep Dam. What stand out most are: 1. The impressive collection of interesting paintings and sculptures everywhere in the hotel. It adds a special touch to the hotel and gives the feeling of been "homely", yet elegant. 2. The general cleanliness, upkeep and maintenance of...

"Gariep Dam" is in fact the name of the town situated on the Northern Bank of the Orange river. The dam is the largest water storage facility in S.A. The town is situated approximately midway between Cape Town and Johannesburg /Durban. It is thus a convenient stopover for people motoring in either direction. I believe that people err in staying...
