Rooms are spacious and well looked after, comfortable beds and welcoming drinks. The staff are friendly and well trained. Breakfast was a fully stocked buffet and delicious! Only critique would be that clean plates aren't changed over fast enough and should be hot plates to ensure the food says warm through out service.

Beautiful venue, we had a few problems initially which were sorted out, would definitely recommend this venue, and their food is awesome.

Had to get up at the crack of dawn but it was worth it and also enjoyed a lovely sunset. Very well organized; a very interesting and enjoyable experience with a guide who is passionate about the Meerkats

It's always disappointing when expectations are not met as this can lead to disappointment all round. Our agent had booked a luxury river-view room but the room allocated to us was quite small by garden route standards and there was no river to be seen, just a reed bed and a hint or suggestion that there might be a river...

We stayed here during our Garden Route trip, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff greeted us warmly and we immediately felt right at home. Our room was well appointed and beautifully furnished with a balcony overlooking the gardens and the reeds of the river. A very comfortable stay indeed. We found the restaurant / dining area a bit sterile and... More

We stayed overnight here. The accommodations are very nice as were the staff and restaurant. We didn't do any of the "activities " listed. They were extra $$ and we didn't have much for extra time. Many who stayed over night then went to the meerkat safari near by.

We visited de zeekoe the weekend of our anniversary and it was really beautiful! The first night my hubby didn't have a great sleep, but they were nice enough to upgrade us the next day Which we appreciated so much, thank you! The breakfast was amazing and the staff really friendly!

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at De Zeekoe. Beautifully appointed room however our heater wasn't working very efficiently, just enough to take the edge off. And the exhaust fan in the bathroom was slightly rattly. Beautiful restaurant and reception area. Nice and close to other attractions in Oudtshoorn.

We originally had a 2 bedroom cabin booked at De Zeekoe. The property is so beautiful and the cabins are rustic but charming although they are about a 5 minute drive on a dirt road from the main house. We had a lovely view of the lake and were quite comfortable until dusk hit and so did the bugs. It... More
