We recently spent 2 nights at Gooderson Kloppenheim and had a very enjoyable stay. The rooms were phenomenal - beautifully decorated and with stunning views over the lake and mountains. The food was tasty and the service was personal and attentive. A special mention to Mandla, who was so friendly and really made our visit an enjoyable one. Two suggestions:...

Dear EastCapeTours Thank you for taking the time to review Gooderson Kloppenheim Country Estate Hotel. Thank you for the excellent review.

This is a lovely place set on a wast estate on a hill. The rooms are large and comfortable chalet. The decor is that a country house. The staff, service and food was very good. There is plenty of activities on the property as well.

Beautiful setting and the chalets are really well appointed. All the basics are there and would rank as the nicest chalets we have visited. Didn't have much time to utilise any of the facilities but overall it was really nice. Unfortunately never got to utilise the spa facilities as no appointments were available.

Hidden on a mountain and only few hours from Pretoria next to N 4. Very clean and comfort accommodation. Lost to do for the active visitor, hiking, horse riding, fishing and many more. For the more private, a safe place to relax .

My wife and I spent a long weekend in a self-catering unit, as we have done in the past. The units are fantastic and relatively private. Everything you need is here, although I miss the gas-heater in lounge and the gas BBQ grill that was available in previous years. There is plenty to do on the estate if you don't...

Dear Joeboy69 Thank you for your excellent review, but also your brilliant recommendations. We have removed the gas-fireplace about 3 years ago already. A Braai is just better when you use charcoal or wood. Regarding you disappointment with the food received.

We stayed at Kloppenheim for a weekend. The place is stunning with beautiful scenery. The rooms are Victorian themed rooms with all the luxuries you could ask for. There is also a patio where you can sit and relax while having your morning coffee. Breakfast and dinners were of a high standard. The service was outstanding. We will definitely revisit...
