8.0 Excellent
Pros: Was a great stay very relaxing
6.0 Good
Pros: The set up is beautiful and buildings & views Few lovely waiters and Safari game drive staff who were really lovely and went out their way for us
Cons: . The swimming pool is very small for the amount of guests they have - no shower and no bar service which you would think with 35 degree heat they make a killing if they had a bar over there. There are no mattresses on sun loungers uncomfy wooden chairs ! With the weather you get and gorgeous location you expect that to be a big selling point! Main reception staff 2 different ladies for check in and check out both very unwelcoming, cold and monitone - fill this out and that’s about it. When we checked out paid our bill no thank you have a lovely stay - rude & scruffy shame as they are front of house you need someone friendly. The breakfast was disappointing for how much we paid £250 breakfast dinner not much option at all fruit some dried up water melon ! We just came from a 4 star lodge in albertinia and paid same price for 2 safari drives included half board so much more on offer and lovely staff.

Pros: Really loved this place which although not your safari proper, really feels as authentic as you can get. We had a really knowledgeable bush driver who knew a great deal about the animals we saw, which were rhino, giraffe, zebra, springbok, kudu, hippo amongst others.

Restaurant food was okay - but we weren't there for the food. Breakfast was better.
Cons: Check in was okay but it was a very hot day and it would have been a nice touch if they had offered arriving guests a drink.

5.0 Okay
Pros: Make sure you take insect repellent as the cleaners leave the windows open all day and then in the evening your little chalet is full of mosquito's as this place is situated on a beautiful location but you cannot sit outside on your balcony at night unless you have insect repellent or a citronella candle. The chalets don't have a roof in the bathroom and the so called "roof" and the" doors" to the bathroom are all see through and not sound proof at all so unless you traveling with someone who knows you super well, I would not recommend this accommodation. This could be a magnificent place to stay if upgraded to be more hospitable.

7.0 Good
Pros: The quirky rooms are a fun novelty and really different from other hotels. The pool area was a lovely place to relax in and the staff were friendly, coming out to take drinks orders. Breakfast was really good and had plenty of options. Good value for money.
Cons: Dinner in the restaurant was a little disappointing - when the food arrived, it didn't match the description in the menu. The chicken burger had been marinated in soy sauce and balsamic vinegar, which wasn't a combination that really worked. The layout could be better, with more direct paths to the lodges and more slimline furniture in the room so they're more spacious.
7.9 Good
Pros: Good location
Cons: Small rooms Pool not big enough for size of hotel and not enough sunbeds
10.0 Excellent

9.2 Excellent
Pros: The location was excellent and the room was very clean and comfortable.
Cons: A very minor thing but you had to collect pool towels from reception and return them to reception afterwards. It was very quiet while we were there luckily as if the hotel was full the pool area would have been much too small. But I’d still certainly recommend it for a few nights.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The vibe and breakfast was very nice. I have like the pool area, Nice and clean. Also the pool is big enough to enjoy yourself, The rooms is clean and not to many items in the room. I really enjoyed my stay and will go there again

Cons: Nothing... keep up the good work
1.0 Poor
Pros: It was well suiated for the visitor attractions
Cons: When we arrived we were told there would be a power outage between 8 and 10pm and were issued with battery operated lamp, no lights no aircon, this outage was planned, I feel the hotel should have contacted me and offered a full refund , so I could have arranged accommodation in a nearby town where the power issues weren’t effect. Worse was to follow with another power outage during the night, I was over 40 degrees yesterday so we were extremely hot and uncomfortable. When I tackled reception staff in the morning they were disinterested in my complaints, I felt a full refund should have be offered regardless of whether the issue was out of their control.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The whole setup of the accommodation. Clean and very spacious rooms. Close to a lot of the tourist attractions oudtshoorn has to offer.
Cons: Not much facilities besides the pool. Food was a bit over priced.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: An outstanding property - a working Olive Farm - in a great location. We enjoyed it immensely apart from our room which, while comfortable, had no window! It almost looked like they had converted barns by putting a corridor through the centre and then orienting everything onto the internal corridor. What would have been our external wall and window was then used as the bathroom window - complete with frosted glass. This all meant there was no patio or balcony for our room, which was very strange in such a sun blessed and spectacular landscape. We did enjoy our stay, though, and will visit again - next time, we’ll just know to insist on a room with a window and a patio!

Pros: Location was good- about midway between oudtshoorn & the cango caves. Despite seeing photos online before booking, Everything about Surval exceeded our expectations. Rooms were big & comfy with fabulous bathrooms. Our room (Beldi) had lovely views which we could see from bed in the morning & also nice to sit outside on balcony. The grounds were bigger than expected with a nice walk around the waters edge, there’s obviously a longer route since a park run group started from here! The food was excellent- both evening meal & great choice of buffet breakfast all in really lovely surroundings. They’re obviously set up very well for weddings/ events as there are some great facilities for this. Staff also very friendly, would definitely stay again and my in-laws who we brought with us and live only a couple of hours drive away will definitely return & recommend to their friends

Pros: The setting, the good food on property and also some great foodie places around , the great staff, in general the atmosphere of the place, we felt like walking barefoot the whole time
Cons: Not much, the only thing that really could use some improvement was the pool, it was very poorly managed and was murky/dirty most of the day, so we didn’t want to use it, if there was rather a natural looking pond/water container/old rusted tub or tubs, without the pretense of having a pool, it would make the place more authentic and almost a 10

Pros: A lovely warm welcome from Marie who makes you feel very at home. We were in room 7 which was large and nicely furnished in light colours and had a lovely en-suite bathroom with both a bath and separate shower and always plenty of hot water. Small out side seating area at our room door, but also a communal covered area where breakfasts are served but can be used by guests at any time fully equipped with crockery, cutlery and glassware. There is also an honesty fridge with beers, wine, soft drinks etc all very reasonably priced. Good choice at breakfast and all well prepared and presented. Each room has its own secure parking space. Small swimming pool with sun loungers for any lazy days, but unfortunately we did not have time to use this facility . We would definitely recommend especially as it is such good value.

Pros: The setting, the good food on property and also some great foodie places around , the great staff, in general the atmosphere of the place, we felt like walking barefoot the whole time
Cons: Not much, the only thing that really could use some improvement was the pool, it was very poorly managed and was murky/dirty most of the day, so we didn’t want to use it, if there was rather a natural looking pond/water container/old rusted tub or tubs, without the pretense of having a pool, it would make the place more authentic and almost a 10
