Quaint and charming

Review of Berida Hotel

Quaint and charming hotel with excellent service . Rooms are cosy but well equipped and nicely decorated. Restaurant was really delicious and professional arrived . Excellent value for money all round. The pool and gym were a. Ice addition too
Date of stay: January 2024
Room Tip: The pool sadly has no loungers. Book at the restaurant - well worth it

The location is excellent.. The property presents exceptional with elegant style. The staff are very knowledgeable of the area and went above and beyond to be helpful and inviting. The restaurant menu and atmosphere was highly enjoyable. Having the seperate “Whiskey Bar” that served a bar menu was a wonderful alternative to the main restaurant. Thoroughly enjoyed the swimming pool and the Games Room was an extra bonus as either to engage in the activities or as a separate area to relax. The room was well appointed and comfortable.
The property is very well maintained and has lovely sitting areas in the ground to sit and unwind with a book
The Duty Manager ( Jill ) was exceptional in her customer service but it went beyond that… One of the most experienced we’ve ever come across.

This is a locally owned hotel and not part of any chain. A stand-out feature for us was the genuine friendliness of all the staff, especially when a fierce electrical storm knocked out the lights at 8.30pm on Christmas Day/Night. Staff brought around small emergency lighting (by which we continued to play Scrabble).

We were there for Christmas Day lunch, which was excellent (in 2 sittings, so popular) - the staff handled the full restaurant very well. I had a very good local Pinot Noir with my pork. We also had two evening meals in Bistro Sociale before and after Christmas Day, which were delightful.

At the first meal, we ordered a de-alcoholized white wine from New Zealand, but alternatively received a South African wine comparing itself to Sauvignan Blanc. It was not and tasted like sugary lolly water - on providing this feedback, there was no charge: a good response.

The decor is subdued, but very appropriate, in the wall paper and carpeting. While we didn't drink in it, the intimate separate Whisky Bar had an amazing array of whiskeys from just about every place around the world that manufactures it.

Thoroughly recommended.

From the moment we arrived we loved this hotel, our first, but not our last stay. Our room (#21) was a bit small, but perfectly adequate, clean and well appointed. We enjoyed a cocktail in the Gin Room and the range of Gins available was amazing. Dinner was something very special. The eye filet we normally avoid because they are usually more than we can manage, but they were shown by weight and we selected the smallest at 180g. It was cooked to perfection, best eye filet I have had in a long time. Good breakfast selection. The service across all areas of the hotel was excellent. Cheerful, not pretentious, attentive without being overbearing.
We lost a cashmere shawl on this trip, we weren't sure where, so we contacted Berida and they went out of their way to search in all the places we had been and report back to us, sadly not found, but they did all that anyone could expect to find it.

This was our second stay at Berida Hotel and it was wonderful again. We were upgraded on check-in, which was real treat. The hotel has a lovely ambience, the staff are friendly and helpful and the beds are so comfortable!! We'll definitely be back!±
