Free upgrade and access to additional rooms at no cost. Kids loved to have their sepatrate rooms. Very well decorated and clean premises. Excellent staff. Breakfast was excellent.
Did not make prior booking for dinner and nothing could be arranged when we reached the guesthouse in the evening. Location is away from the city / restaurants so one needs to plan in advance. No ostriches - big dissapointment for the kids.
A great location with stunning countryside. The manager was excellent in his attention to detail and the food was first class.
My wife and I really enjoyed our stay there. The place was clean and fresh and we were well looked after. Breakfast quality was excellent. Dinner there was also great. We will re visit Mooiplaas if we do the Garden Route again.
Good value for money stay in a stylish guesthouse about 5 minutes drive from Outdshoorn. Good buffet breakfast. The guest house is on an ostrich farm and you can pay to take a tour around the farm. We paid about £30 for a family of four for this, and it was excellent value - about 2 hours with a very knowledgeable guide called Koos, and the highlight was seeing the baby ostriches hatching and even holding 3 day old babies! Within about a half hour drive are the famous Cango Caves (well worth visiting) and Cango Wildlife Ranch (quite touristy, but useful for seeing lots of animals at close range).
Pool was on the small side, but perfectly adequate for a short stay.
Great host,very welcoming,lovely ostrich dinners,superb views
The realism of the advertising photos, the quality of the accommodation, the friendlyness of the staff, the tour of the ostrich farm, the meals on the veranda with a fabulous view of the area and the barbecue evening meal.
The staff at Mooiplaas invented Hospitallity. Incredibly good service, lovely tranquil location (with ostrich on really nearby), pool with a view of the mountainrange, close to Cango Wildpark (white tigers, cheetas, lions and crocodiles) and the infamous Swartberg pass, a must visit (also possible to pass with common car). Well decorated rooms with eye for detail. Try the ostrich steak braai-ed served by the owner: it´s great.
Straussenfarm, Dinner auf der Wiese
riesige Zimmer, tolles modernes Bad, direkt vor der "Haustür" sind Straßen-Gehege, Abendessen auf Wunsch vom Hotel, bei gutem Wetter im Garten unter Sternenhimmel, großartige Küche, sehr freundliches und engagiertes Personal, viele Tipps vom Management, sehr um das Wohl der Gäste bemüht
Tolle Unterkunft abseits von der Stadt. Sehr freundliches Personal. Das Dinner am Abend ist sehr zu empfehlen ( Straussenfilet).
Preise für Nachtessen sollten publiziert werden
Essen zu teuer für Südafrika bei dieser Qualität
alles rundherum, besonders zu empfehlen ist das Dinner (gegrilltes Straussensteak und mehr)
Wir waren für eine Nacht hier. Die Farm liegt etwas außerhalb aber hat uns dennoch sehr sehr gut gefallen. Toller Service und eine gutes Abendessen. Natürlich Strauß. Wir empfehlen die Unterkunft uneingeschränkt weiter. Besonders aufmerksam war der Service, dass unser Mietwagen am Morgen gewaschen wurde. Ohne zusätzliche kosten usw.
Ausstattung und Lage, ordentliches Frühstück
Es wird gerade ein neues Haus gebaut, weshalb wir in die Depandance mussten. Dort war der Frühstücksservice nicht berauschend. Auch weiter Tipps für Unternehmungen bekam man erst auf Nachfrage im Haupthaus
