“LOVED this place!”
Reviewed 3 January 2009

We LOVED staying here! We were received so warmly, we didn't leave to do any sightseeing! We stayed here two nights as part of a spa treatment package. It is currently under new management and the new owners are very aware of ensuring you feel pampered. Really enjoyed the restaurant, having a real braai was a highlight.

I enjoyed using the clean blue pool and warm Jacuzzi on the deck while reading my book. Appreciated the little extras such as the little surprise present on your pillow at night. Free wireless access was a real bonus too!

We made use of many wellness treatments such as full body massage, Indian Head massage, de-stress pamper, as part of a package (accommodation and treatments in one). We would recommend that you enquire into this.

Reviewed 23 November 2008

This accommodation was not our first choice, My wife and I had originally booked with a more central Oudtshoorn Guest House but were let down at the last minute after they had taken our deposit, Boulders Lodge was offered as an alternative and we never had time to check it out (mistake).
Boulder Lodge is situated on the outside of town on the road to Cango Caves, it looks pretty reasonable from the outside and the reception and dining area are also reasonable.
We were offered the 'Honeymoon Suite', upon entry to this suite it smelt of damp and was decorated in bright orange, which looked like a 70's Harlem brothel (not that I've been to one). Unfortunately we never got to see any of the other rooms so we are unable to comment, but if our room was anything to go by I would suggest that the whole place is in desperate need of refurbishment.
Breakfast and service was good.
My star rating would be 2-3 star.

  • Liked — Not a lot
  • Disliked — Damp depressing room in need of refurbishment
