We loved our room overlooking the dam. The decor was modern and the room attractive and clean. The restaurant was also excellent and the site convenient to all the attractions we wished to visit including Cango caves. We would definitely choose to stay there again

If you are looking to relax with the kids, this is the place. Plenty to keep young children busy and safe, they especially enjoyed the bunnies and zip line. The cabin was clean and had everything we needed.

Gem outside Oudtshoorn
Fantastic service all-round. Dinner was magnificent and service from Coke and Ruben was outstanding. Breakfast was delicious (even with load-shedding). Our chalet was very comfortable and the bed was outstanding. Will definitely be back.
