The service and food was great and it was really...

We were in town for a weddIng, and were greeted at the door with a friendly smile. Our room was beautiful and cool as it were hot days. There is a nice swimming pool with enough lounge chairs to soak up the sun. The fruit at breakfast were fresh. Thank you for a welcoming stay. We will definitely stay here...

Although you are advised to book, the restaurant had only another couple in for the whole evening. The waitress and young chef were clearly not pleased to be working that night. It appears that the owner may have been away. The first table we were shown to was inside near to the kitchen and it was far too hot and...

We recently spent two nights in this beautiful house. Having specifically booked the garden room, we were allocated the bedroom in the front overlooking the street. Whilst beautifully furnished, it was next to the bar and thus noisy and lacking in privacy. The bathroom was dingy and in dire need of refurbishment. We had a good meal at the restaurant,...

We celebrated my in-law's 40th wedding anniversary with dinner at the Patriot Restaurant at De Oude Herberg, and what a culinary feast it was. We were served with friendly staff that made the meal a really outstanding experience. The menu is limited, but the quality of all the dishes are worth sacrificing the wide variety and usual suspects on so...

A beautiful old house with gorgeous rooms, beautiful furnishings and thoughtful amenities, you can see that they have gone beyond the call of duty to make you feel very at home. We stayed in a room off a peaceful courtyard with a pool. A...

Had an exceptional visit to the Patriot Restaurant this past weekend...we were greeted by Jan the owner who has a fine interest in art and antiques, so the entire place is a museum in itself. We had the butter chicken and pecan ice cream 'mess' to finish - which were both delicious. Highly recommended for both the ambiance and food!

Our weekend at De Oude Herberg was a real treat for both my wife and I. The guesthouse is so tastefully furnished and is befitting of a wonderful old house built in the eighteenth century. The room was extremely comfortable. It is situated in Church Street which is one of the most perfectly preserved streets in South Africa. Notwithstanding a...
