Surval Boutique Olive Estate
Picturesque, beyond where your imagination can take you. You simply have to experience it first hand to believe such a place can be real. Especially since it is situated in the dry, arid, apparent nothingness of the Klein Karoo. An olive oasis if you will. A retreat.
Ideally located on the Route 62, this working olive farm is like a centre fold in a Country Living magazine. Cobbled walkways lined with rose bushes and impeccably trimmed lavender. Pristine surroundings, lush green mountains and valley as a setting for this immaculate boutique hotel of earthen colours and consummate elegance.
Described one would think, pretentious, but in fact, a more homely affair with a hint of class and indulgence to welcome you instead.
Ideally located in Oudtshoorn and for the rest of the Garden Route, this hotel offers a charmed stay in luxury accommodation and don’t forget the view and award-winning restaurant.
There are 5 family rooms, 22 luxury rooms, 3 single rooms and 1 honeymoon suite, all individually named with names as sophisticated as the décor which makes them so opulent. Crisp white linens with touches of leather, rustic chic and African flair combined with country side grace.
Family Rooms: 4 of the family rooms can accommodate 4 people, with each room either a double or twin. Some on the ground floor and others with loft rooms. 1 family room accommodates 5 people with a king size bed on ground level and 3 single beds upstairs.
Luxury Rooms: can be converted into either a double or a twin, all offering a shower and a bath. 12 luxury rooms offer a panoramic view of the Swartberg Mountain and 3 of the rooms host a sleeper couch suitable for children under the age of 12.
Single Rooms: 2 of which have a double bed and 1 which only has a single bed. En-suite bathrooms with a shower.
Honeymoon Suite: A king size bed and Roman bath in an open plan layout. Separate shower and all the extras to make this room a suite above the rest with a dash of romance.

De Denne Guest House
Cadbury’s got his eye on you. And it’s a big one. He’s got the largest peeper of any land animal. And Suzie’s his missus so watch your step. Johan and Louise Keller are billed as the owners but what’s the bet their resident counterparts are the real deal here? This is a working farm. An ostrich one. Cadbury and Suzie are great, big, flightless birds. And probably top dogs.
