Schoone Oordt Country House

Reviewed 13 November 2017

I arranged a two-night stay at Schoone Oordt, through Expert Africa, and it was just wonderful!

From the moment we arrived and received our warm greeting and complimentary afternoon tea & cake, we were beyond satisfied. Everything was just perfect!

We stayed in the Family Room which was ideal for my two young children who needed to share, so they could sleep in the very comfortable loft which adjoined the main bedroom. We all enjoyed the pool during the day, and the kids would run around the enormous garden. Schoone Oordt gave us lots of recommendations for places to visit during the day, and also helped with dinner reservations for the one evening we chose to eat out.

Our meals at Schoone Oordt were outstanding! The food was delicious and I've never had a choice of a three-course breakfast + a buffet before. Superb!

It was the most wonderful, relaxing stay and I will return one day!

Thank you Schoone Oordt Country House!!

The hotel provided us with a most memorable stay. We are on holiday from England and have enjoyed some superb food and accommodation in South Africa but this was the best of all. The room was tastefully decorated and very comfortable, the food was of a very high standard and the staff were friendly and attentive. In every respect we felt that we were being treated as if we were special.

We were on a two week trip in South Africa and booked ahead using Trip Advisor. Schoone Oordt jumped out of the page at me - it was a quality place to stay with very obliging and helpful staff and management - nothing was too much trouble. Our room was clean and very comfortable - cannot fault the place. I will doubtless return! Quality of sleep was excellent despite a severe thunderstorm during the night!

Room Tip: All good! Very quiet air conditioning unit!!

Very elegant, beautiful big rooms, lots of creams, lotions etc in the bathroom, chocolate truffles waiting for you after dinner. The dining room is a conservatory, light and airy. Excellent service, best eggs benedict.
