          In the vines of Olifant River Valley. Nice setting, big rooms with aircon and heater. Good breakfast, the bacon was really crispy (as ordered!). Friendly dogs, no barking. A bit remote, a good quarter hour drive to Vredendal for dinner.More

          We stayed for one night. Got my booking wrong with only one room booked , not two. Although they were fully booked the manager made a plan in two hours and we had a fantastic second room ready on arrival

          So happy that we could "make a plan" to accommodate you. There's nothing more distressing than an unhappy guest. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to "make the plan" for you and for this positive review.
