The Baths

Reviewed By Penel0pe1968 - Maputo, Mozambique

We stayed in Olsen building. Was a birthday spoil. Opening the door to a beautiful courtyard with a built in braai, two deck chairs, a clothes horse and a fantastic jacuzzi where you hose in your own clean water. The flat is huge with an open plan room and kitchen and two large chairs to relax. Kitchen table with two chairs and a very good fridge /freezer combination. Kitchen fitted with everything you need to cook a meal or have a braai. There is a front patio where you can relax as well. Bathroom with a shower. All clean and good in the bathroom. Negatives : many many flies. Do bring fly repellent or a swat. The baboons are also a nuisance and attacked a dog when we were there. Outside a bit of maintenance needs to be done here yang there. Small stuff also like the gutters full of leaves. Our flat had beer bottles and ash lying on the rocks. Unacceptable. Supervision to be done after the cleaning staff says they are done. The MacGregor restaurant was very mediocre and very expensive. Really needs a bit of finesse here. Servings sloppy and tasteless. The snails and pasta Alfredo. The crumbled mushrooms was very good. They make a mean tartar sauce. Lovely. We loved the weekend and will definitely return.

Rocherpan Nature Reserve

Reviewed By GrantPill - Hermanus, South Africa

Congratulations Cape Nature. You have truly got Rocherpan just right. The chalets are superb, clean and well maintained. Considering that these are all built with Eco in mind, they are amazingly comfortable. Don't let anyone tell that the water less toilets are gross!! They work well with no smell. There are 4 family units, all with views of the pan and 4 single room units. Everything that one would need is catered for, new kitchen equipment, indoor fire place, outdoor braai, swimming pool and superb service from all staff. They really go out of their way to make a stay enjoyable.
Attractions are of course the pan with water birds for the enthusiast Unfortunately for us the pan was dry - due to the drought in the Cape. But this should not put anyone off. There are still an amazing amount of other bird species to watch and photograph. We were also treated to seeing the most perfect Boomslang being mobbed by the Bulbul's, what a perfect specimen and really not perturbed by us.
Great walks on well marked trails - easy walking as the area is relatively flat. A beach that goes on forever, want privacy be the only footprints, this is a must. Don't miss out on the immaculate picnic and braai spots, and enjoy a perfect sunset drink from the lookout spot.
This reserve comes highly rated by us, and we will definitely be returning when the pan is full.
Keep up the good work Cape Nature

Honingklip Brewery

Reviewed By Yvette W - Cape Town, South Africa

Hubby loves their dubbel and trippel, but sadly the trippel was not available for sale on our visit, and the dubbel was basically sold out. What a pity, since those are the favourites! But the beers are delicious, well priced and the setting is gorgeous.

Stadsaal Caves

Reviewed By JWT-1964 - Pretoria, South Africa

A short (11km) drive from Sanddrif. Kids loved to explore. Cave painting was good although not really worth the trip by itself. Stunning views and rock formations. Definitely worth a visit if you are already at Cederberg vineyard.

Gabrielskloof offers the visitor a spectacular cellar experience, tasting room, restaurant and deli with 360 degree overberg views. Come and sample our superb wines, home grown olive oils, and wholesome local country fare.

Reviewed By Fairlie - Glasgow, Scotland

We visited this lovely estate winery and restaurant of the N2 and enjoyed lovely estate Sauvignon Blanc and a delightful cheeseboard. The setting around a large garden and small lake was peaceful and modern. Also, the service from the young, local staff was friendly, attentive and informative. The caramel cheescake was a pure delight. Further, the estate shop offered a wide selection of local goods, wine and produce. Overall, an enjoyable time at this modern winery & restaurant.

Cederberg Private Cellar

This is the highest wine farm above sea level in the Western Cape - as well as a holiday resort - ever so popular, but isolated. Not the kind of place you visit on short notice. We recommend you stay two nights. You have to do some planning and in the end will be blessed with nature as good as it gets. Wine tasting hours 6 days a week: 09h00 to 12h00 and 14h00 till 16h00. Close on Sundays, Xmas days and Easter Friday and special hours on Public Holidays. If you want to make this a day trip - rather phone and make sure about the road. Best is to stay the night in the fully equiped chalets. Take note: no restaurants and shops on the farm. Three hours drive from Cape Town Airport.

Reviewed By mikeswallow01 - Mexborough, United Kingdom

Place a long way from any where so if you go check your fuel tank. Wine tasting was really good with some very nice wines .There were around 19 differant wines to try if you wanted to. Good explanation of the wines available.

Piketberg Dutch Reformed Church

Reviewed By Jilldutoit - Port Elizabeth, South Africa

What an exceedingly beautiful building this is - set high up on the hillside, making it visible to the rest of the townsfolk. This is by far the most imposing building in Piketberg, but it is totally charming - a bi-coloured symphony in slate grey stonework, with the quoins in off-white. It is easily recognisable as the work of one of South Africa's most prolific church architects, Carl Otto Hager. It is well worth a visit as not only has the building been lovingly maintained, but the Gardens and particularly the garden of remembrance are well laid out and pleasing to the eye.
