review by Paul Ruschenbaum


Great location; friendly staff. Enjoyed the outdoors. Double bed had to be replaced long ago. Good overall experience but the sleeping comfort might prevent me from returning.

"Slightly Disappointing"

We stayed at Otterskloof for one night and arrived in a huge rain storm which made the 30km trip on the dirt road rather unpleasant! Unfortunately we found the staff although pleasant untrained, our impression was that this is largely a hunting lodge and they seemed to be working on skeleton staff during this period. The evening meal was certainly overpriced at R195/person! The room was pleasant but we had a shower door which did not close. We certainly felt that this was not a 4 star experience!
