on arrival the place was very quiet and stayed that way which was lovely. The manageress was so helpful, the room was beautiful and the bathroom was gorgeous. We had the pool all to ourselves except for the managers daughter who was visiting and was a delight to talk to, gave us plenty of information about the country which was...

This place was really strange, beautiful on the outside, but quite eerie on the inside. While the rooms were big, they were so old fashioned that it felt haunted. The 50's style little girls dress hanging up in the room didn't help! The place was also deserted. I didn't sleep very well! We had to search for half an hour...

I had an overnight stay at the “De Opstal” witch included dinner and breakfast. The room was large which included a separate toilet and a shower room. The room with its heavy wooden furniture gave it a rustic feeling which in its own way was quite pleasant. The evening meal was a buffet with some unusual bits which was not...

We just spent a lovely night in this location. Our room was very large and clean an decorated with an eye for detail. There is a swimming pool in the beautiful gardens which was very refreshing on an extremely hot day. The breakfast was excellent and the staff very friendly. In spite of having a restaurant on the premises our...

This Lodge is quaint, old fashioned and fairly unique and my wife and I enjoyed our 2 night stay here. We were in room 15 which was a very big 'cottage', with a good sized and well equipped bathroom with a walk in shower and a separate jacuzzi bath. The cottage had its own veranda which overlooked the gardens which...

Very cozy place, very nice garden and very good food from the resturant. The rooms are in small houses and are very cozy, not so high standard but very good. The bathroom are better standard. Nice small pool but was a bit dirty at the time. Nice hotel to stay a shorter time.

We were a bit apprehensive about our pre-booked stay here after reading the comments on Trip Advisor but I have to say we had a lovely night here. We were allocated room 12 which had a lovely balcony, bed and bathroom with jacuzzi bath and large shower. The hotel grounds were spacious and the pool was a refreshing dip after...

Stayed here for two nights, it wasn't worth the drive. There is a country charm with this place but we felt like we were staying at an Amish resort. Bar the Ostrich bobotie, the food was atrocious (a ham and cheese omelette that looked like a heart attack on a plate!). Staff were friendly, at times a bit over attentive...

We stayed here for one night in December and were sorry to leave. It's such a beautiful setting and our room was so unique and peaceful that we would liked to have stayed another night. Our room (one of several white cottages in beautiful grounds) was huge, the décor was full of character and the attention to detail was incredible....

We stayed one night at De Opstal during our trip along the garden route. The hotel/guesthouse was easily in the worst 3 places I've ever stayed in. From a haphazard check in, to an old crusty, unclean room to a total shambles at dinner, this is one place to avoid. For example, our bed sheets had holes in them and...
