Lovely big rooms with modern bathrooms and lovely little touches in the rooms like bathrobes, fresh rosemary, and yummy biscuits. The gardens are beautiful, pool was great and staff were helpful and friendly. Unfortunately the air conditioning was not working on our first night and we had to ask a few times about this before we got moved to another...

This Country Lodge cannot be faulted. Unusual, quirky and beautiful gardens.We only stayed one night. The food was excellent and we wished we could have stayed longer. Our room had a verandah and an evening there was just magic.

This has been our 5th stay at De Opstal and we wouldn't stay anywhere else in Oudtshoorn. We are always made so welcome by Matilda, Albertus and all the staff, it is like coming home! Rooms and bathrooms are spacious with wonderful furnished stoeps. The gardens and pool area are delightful. A lovely place to stay in a beautiful valley.

We had a huge room here with a massive open fire that we lit and enjoyed from a big comfortable sofa. It was very romantic! We had a big double bed, the area was very quiet and sleep quality was excellent. Everything worked in our room and the wifi was fast and free. There was a porch with rocking chairs...

We stopped here for one night as we traveled up the Garden Route. Lovely grounds, great staff. Great wine selection and the food was excellent! The ostrich pate is to die for! Wish we had more time here. I recommend this little farm style lodge to relax in the garden and enjoy a glass of wine. The staff was extremely...
