We arrived at the impressive looking Schoone Oordt late afternoon and was met by the delightful Fideney who took us through the conservatory into a comfy sitting room and gave us complimentary afternoon tea with home made pastries and cakes. Elouise then came out to look after us and although we could have eaten there for dinner they brought us many local menus and booked a reservation for us. We have 2 boys aged 6 and 8 and we had a perfect room consisting of a bedroom with a loft above for the boys with 2 single beds upstairs. They thought this was great fun. The rooms are very tasteful and gorgeous bathroom with lovely toiletries and a big jar of bath salts. There was a small kitchen in the room too with a fridge. The bed linen was excellent and everywhere was spotless. We woke the nest morning to see our car had been cleaned!!! Never had that before! Breakfast was one of the best. Consisting of 3 courses of buffet fruit and cereals, cheeses etc then pancakes served with berries and followed by eggs on muffins with hollandaise and all sorts of lovely things!!! This is a perfect place to stay when travelling along the garden route. We visited the nature reserve the next morning and hiked up to see the waterfalls and if we had time there is a great dam nearby with zip wires and canoes for the kids. Fideney and Elouise looked after us so well and would highly recommend. Great with kids too. You can hire mountain bikes and there is a pool (not heated) so you need to be brave.
