The De Kloof Luxury Estate is a really great place to stay. It ticked all the boxes for us – clean and well furnished accommodation, great service and good food. As a bonus, there was some complimentary pre dinner wine tasting – a very pleasant experience.
The Guest House is in a quiet, pleasant location, but within easy walking distance of the town centre, so if you wanted to eat out, no need to drive. Our hosts were highly attentive, providing us with a welcome drink and ensuring all our needs were met. Although there were no choices on the dinner menu, again our hosts made certain that there was nothing on the menu that we didn’t like before we committed to eat there. We enjoyed our dinner, and a Dutch couple we got talking to described it as ‘typical Dutch’. I’m sure that was intended as a compliment!
The accommodation was of a good standard, with a massive bathroom (about the same size as the bedroom!). It had aircon (needed in January!) and a very comfortable bed. It also had complimentary wifi.
On our check out morning, we were permitted to leave our car in the car park while we wandered around the town. Again, our hosts offered to pick us up if we got too tired to walk back up the hill in the heat (it was around 35C!) to the guest house. This wasn’t necessary, but was a nice gesture.
Would we stay here again? Definitely. Highly recommended.
