"Friendly staff"
23 Jul 2013
By Julie, South Africa
"We had a lovely stay at the De Zeekoe Guest Farm. Friendly staff and the rooms were really luxurious and well equipped. We were however disappointed by the fact that there was only SABC 1 and 2 in the rooms and that in the main lounge there was a very limited satellite package. In addition we felt that the dinner was over priced for what we got and the fact that we needed to order dinner when we checked in was also not ideal."
"Great stay"

"We stayed at the cottage for 2 nights. The location is beautiful. Not for people with problems with spiders. You are in nature."

"We stayed in a cabin close to the pond -3 km away from the farm. In fact, it's a big wooden chalet, perfectly equipped. Very nice place. Surely one of the best places in this area. Many electricity breakdowns during the day. No internet except in the hotel."

"The hospitality at De Zeekoe Farm was absolutely great.I received a very warm welcome from Sarita.We were offered a refreshment and were then acquainted with the surroundings.The luxury suite was immaculate with a very comfortable king size bed and a gorgeous new-old victorian bath. It was beautifully decorated. The views from the balcony were beautiful overlooking the Swartberg Mountains and the sun set. The bird species varies over 160.A cooked English Breakfast was served which was delicious.The staff members serving breakfast were very friendly and helpful.This is a place to relax and unwind.It has a breathtaking view.The accommodation is very good value for money and I would highly recommend the Guest Farm.I would love to stay in the Waterfront Cabins - they are rustic and beautiful inside with a huge stone fireplace.Thank you to Sarita and Linda.You were superb hosts!"
