Luxury accommodation with a first class welcome

Posted Aug 8, 2014
Pros: Just about everything
Truly a luxury experience with champagne welcome, three course breakfasts, real fires in the rooms and staff, at all levels, who were welcoming and helpful. Would highly recommend this accommodation - beautiful rooms in a beautiful setting which was enhanced by the service provided by the staff through the car being washed in the morning, fires being lit in your room in the evening to the outstanding food and willingness by the staff to make your holiday a wonderful experience.

Quality throughout!

Posted Jun 9, 2014
Pros: The comfort level and the food.
Cons: nothing
The level of quality and service here is exceptional. Particular mention has to be made of the food...we had the best meal in South Africa here. The chef is outstanding! If you are able, stay more than one night!

Luxury small hotel with amazing service

Posted Apr 25, 2014
This is a lovely, small hotel where there is amazing attention to detail. Service is second to none. Interesting, historic building refurbished in a very sympathetic, attractive style.

Oooh La La!!!

The stress of travelling just melts away the minute you step on to the grounds of this magnificent country house. Welcoming staff, complimentary refreshments, speedy settling in and you feel wonderful after just a few minutes here. The morning breakfast in the light and airy conservatory was first rate. The rooms were extremely well kept and no detail was too small. From the heated bathroom floor to the chocolates left wishing you a good night. The staff and their beaming smiles made this one of my all time favorite stops. Jeepers, they even washed our car when we weren't looking Go there. You will no regret it.

Beautiful hotel.

Posted Mar 20, 2014
Nice place and very attentive staff. A little upset that we didn't know that we were unable to eat in the restaurant as it was fully booked. We had an ok time at a nearby restaurant but sorely missed the experience at the hotel as breakfast was exquisitely done.

Excellent Choice!

We stayed here for one night but wish we could've stayed longer. Stunning hotel, fantastic staff, beautiful rooms and impressive grounds. From our initial greeting upon arrival right through to our departure, Schoone Oordt certainly didn't disappoint. Highlights included the delicious breakfast, relaxing loungers around the pool, personal attention from staff and a rainfall walk-in shower in the bathroom! There has clearly been a great amount of thought put into all the small details in this hotel which make this place so special. We stayed in room 8 which is located outside of the main hotel building near the pool where you could have a proper fire lit in your room if you like! We look forward to being able to stay here again.

The Best You Will Ever Get

Posted Feb 20, 2014
Thanks for everything. The chef made a birthday cake for my mum on request and it was beautiful. I have been all around the world and stayed in other 5 Star Hotels like the Ritz in New York etc, but I rate Schoone Oordt, the top place I have every stayed at, even it was only briefly. I will definitely be coming back. Also the guide/concierge that look after us was top notch and the best I have had the pleasure of meeting. Thanks again for making everything perfect.

Lovely friendly and luxurious

Posted Jan 27, 2014
Although our first night was marred by a problem with a weird smell in our cottage, we were really impressed with how problems were handled. We were moved to a gorgeous room as soon as one became available the next day and the problem with the first was linked to flooding from rains so not really a failing on their part. All staff very pleasant and attentive. We would certainly return to this lovely refuge!

Lovely hotel in a very good location in a beautiful town. Owner & staff looked after us very well. This stay will be remembered as one of the highlights of our visit to South Africa.
