“Service, setting & comfort”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

What a great stay - warm, wonderful service from reception to restaurant, delicious dining, beautiful setting just a stroll away from activities, and utterly comfortable accommodation (we stayed at De Oude Pastorie). The team was very sweet about helping me surprise my boyfriend with a few birthday treats. There were two big events on during our stay at the Village, but both were handled so well that they did not detract in any way from romance of our weekend away. We were pleasantly surprised by the main restaurant's offering - the bobotie and lamb curry are exceptional! We'll definitely go there again - thoroughly recommend it.

A wonderful place in a wonderful setting. Gorgeous breakfast and magnificent nature. An excellent starting point for a visit to the maginficent Tsitsikamma National Park. We had a tea at the river and it was enchanting!

It might have been that I did not expect to stay at such a beautiful place, it was my first visit to Storms Rivers and I could not compare this to other local hotels, but this is a very nice place, just check the pictures. Breakfast and dinner were great! Very nice Villa type of rooms, quite, peaceful, clean air, beautiful gardens with flowers. I think it is more appropriate for couples, I think we were the only ones there on business overnight. I would love to come back with my wife. Make sure you visit the bar, unless you are against taxidermy of animals, otherwise do not miss it.

Room Tip: Make sure your room has a garden view and then just leave you room curtains open to enjoy it. If pos...

There is not a lot of choice of accomodation in Stormsriver but this place is rather lovely. Great accomodation if a little dark and dated looking in the bedroom and bathroom but a perfect "village" setting. The restaurant is good if not great and the breakfast was excellent. We thought it was good value for money and had a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: we chose the Victoria and Alfred honeymoon cottages.

We were delighted when we drove up to the place, it looked rather quaint and lovely. Our spirits sunk when we were told we wont be staying at the Victorian styles room but instead will be in the cabin rooms. But the room looked fine, except that we were a couple in a triple room with a queen and a single. Until I got to the bathroom. It was horrible, and didn't appear too clean either. There was a chip on the sink near the tap which was brown, the bath tub looked unclean - so much so we chose not to shower in it.

Staff were friendly and helpful, particularly the dinner service - they were very nice.

There is no internet in the room so you have to go to the reception are for connection. They ran out of adapters at reception.

The Victorian villas looked lovely, but I would not stay here in the cabins - but on the whole I would worry about how clean the place is overall.

Dear Nush7,

Thank you for review. I'm sorry to hear about your experience. Please let me know the room number you stayed in, as I am confused as the description does not agree with the room type....it sounds like the Arniston cottage with the queen size and single bed, but it has a seperate bath and shower. Our housekeeper is meticulous about cleaning, so it is very unfortunate that you felt there was a cleaning problem.

We'll have to have a look at our wi-fi as we have it throughout the whole hotel. We have found that on raining/cloudy days, the reception is intermittent. However, luckily in the public areas (reception, guest lounge, verandah and Cafe Bacchus) you can enjoy our free uncapped wi-fi.

Looking forward to be hearing from you.

Kind regards, Irma

Everything about this property is positive; location, facilities, breakfast, reception, price. The only negative is that WiFi does not work in the room, but is good in shared areas. Stay here, you won't regret it.

Dear Proud2bTexan,

Thank you for your feedback. It is really lovely to hear. :)

I'm sorry about the wi-fi! It is suppose to work in the rooms...all of them. We have found that on very cloudy rainy days the signal is more irregular.... I'll take it up with our service provider. Thanks for letting us know.

Enjoy the rest of your SA holiday! :)
