This is an exceptional boutique hotel to stay at when passing through oudsthoorn, spectacular views from deck of restaurant and from pool / lawns. Rooms are well equipped we were fortunate that both rooms enjoyed views as well. Restaurant menu and wine list are good, as is service.

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the hotel. It is set in the most beautiful grounds with amazing views. Opposite the hotel is a great wildlife park with fantastic elephant experiences. The staff were also very helpful. One of the highlights was having breakfast overlooking the mountains

Great staff and Frikkie Vermeulen was a great host. The food was 5 star, whether it was breakfast or lamb shank for dinner. The reception were even kind enough to hold a parcel for collection post my stay. I can honestly say we will be back to Surval.

We especially liked the small details...lavender on towels, turndown sevice etc. If we really would need to mention an improvement point then it would be the drinks service...

We were a group of four from the UK touring South Africa at the end of November and early December. You may see from my other reviews that I was hugely positive about South Africa and the accommodation and restaurants we experienced. This is why our stay at Surval Boutique Olive Estate was such a disappointment, and why I am...
