Charming Classic African Hotel

Posted Nov 30, 2016 on Hotels
Great hotel tucked away high in the Zuurberg Pass, with awesome views of the valley and Addo Elephant NP. The hotel was built last century, and has the charm of an African Safari Lodge. The staff have been working there for years, and are great for whatever you need. Nice gardens to walk around. It's a little remote, but an excellent and wonderful get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Mountain Safari Lodge

Posted Nov 24, 2016 on Hotels
This is a very well-run hotel that dates back 150+ years to when the treckers use to go through the Zuurburg Pass. It's a phenomenal place with great views and good proximity to Addo Elephant National Park. Breakfast and food were excellent, and the atmosphere is like a 1920's game lodge. The gardens and grounds are well-kept, and the chalets are amazingly decorated. If you do stay here, take the road from the south and not the north (the Zuurburg Pass is really for 4X4 plus vehicles). The air is 20 degrees F cooler up at this location in the mountains.

Worth putting up with the mountain pass

Posted Nov 3, 2016 on Hotels
Staff are great. Food is excellent. Yes, there is a 16km (10mile) mountain pass - currently unpacked but being upgraded- but worth it. Monkeys, birds, views!

Zuurberg Inn New Year 2012

Posted Jan 4, 2012 on Hotels
The hotel is ideally located out of town but still accessible to visitors. I found the place well run, staff were friendly and helpful and the catering was excellent. The natural beauty and the historic significance combine to present a most charming venue which enchants those who seek a sense of connection with the past backed by the comforts of the present. All in all we had a most enjoyable stay unsullied by anything. IL Holmes (a dyed in the wool Eastern Caper!)

December 2011 visit to Zuurberg Hotel

Posted Dec 21, 2011
Pros: The entire hotel was filled with the most amazing furniture and had a wonderful atmosphere
Cons: Nothing - it was perfect!
Location: Very remote on top of a mountain about 17 km from Addo Elephant Park - very picturesque
A beautiful hotel set in the most beautiful part of South Africa. We felt like royalty from the time we arrived. The rooms were impecible and the service was outstanding.

18km bis zum Parkeingang auf schotterpiste.

Posted Mar 1, 2017
die Chalets sind großzügig und sehr schön. das Haupthaus mit den Aufenthaltsräumen und Terrasse sind abgewohnt und schmutzig. die Technik für den Pool ist in einem offenen Loch neben dem Pool. Buffet am abend mäßig. Management wirkt nicht sehr interessiert. ACHTUNG! bucht man eine Tour in den Park INKL. Parkeintritt und man hat bereits eine Wildcard für diesen Eintritt gekauft, kommt sie nicht zur Anwendung, man bezahlt somit doppelt.

Abgelegenes Hotel

Posted Jan 8, 2016
Hotel nur über 16 km Schotterstrasse zu erreichen. Hotel etwas in die Jahre gekommen. Unser Zimmer/ Haus etwas vom Hauptgebäude entfernt. Inneneinrichtung des Hotels abgewohnt. Sitzkissen und Teppiche mit Flecken. Haushund hat im Pool gebadet ! Zuwenig Sonnenliegen. Man muss im Hotel essen, da Hotel abseits liegt. Freundliches und zuvorkommendes Hotelpersonal.
