It's an old farm where the buildings have been converted to rooms and a restaurant. Our room was originally the stables so it was huge. The meeting is beautiful with fantastic gardens. The owner told us gardening was the favourite hobby of him and his wife, although they still tun a family farm just down the road. Beacuse their own...

De Opstal was a great place to stay for 2 nights. We felt very welcomed by Matildhe and all her staff, they were very helpful. The breakfast and evening meal, the food was amazing. The restaurant in which we ate had a lovely welcoming log fire, beautiful chandeliers, an old coach in the corner and very spacious place to eat....

De Opstal is in the heart of ostrich farmland. The owners go the extra mile to make you welcome. Our lodge had a fabulous open fire. They put hot water bottles in our bed and the extras in the bathroom were appreciated. Matilda even did our washing. They gave us lifts to local restaurants as the restaurant was closed when...

We spent a couple of nights here in July and loved everything. The staff were all so friendly and helpful, the food was great and the accommodation was gorgeous. After a day out exploring the Cango Caves or visiting the ostriches, we loved just chilling in the late afternoon in our rocking chairs on the verandah with a glass of...

Very warm welcome from the owners and loved the style of the rooms with all the facilities you could need for an overnight stay as part of our garden route tour. Grateful for the owners help in lighting our fire on a chilly evening. Food was plentiful and varied.

Visiting Outdshoorn with my family and girlfriend, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at De Opstal. When we arrived, we were swiftly welcomed by the staff and made to feel at home. The room had great character, in the evening it got quite cold but this wasn't a problem as the helpful staff lit a fire in our room which was...

Hmmmmm! If I was not here as part of a tour I would have left by now. Taken to our room which was very cold and dated. Airconditioning on but barely functioning. We complained and were moved to another room with a slightly better airconditioner. The rooms were so cold that the beds felt really damp. After complaining again an...

The staff really make this hotel, they are so friendly & accommodating. The room was lovely and big with a great bathroom including a corner tub. It was a nice setting & they served some good decent food, even if it was a buffet.
