Cabin was well equipped and very spacious

Julie Botha, South Africa

We had a lovely stay at the De Zeekoe Guest Farm. Friendly staff and the rooms were really luxurious and well equipped. We were however disappointed by the fact that there was only SABC 1 and 2 in the rooms and that in the main lounge there was a very limited satellite package. In addition we felt that the dinner was over priced for what we got and the fact that we needed to order dinner when we checked in was also not ideal.

We stayed at the cottage for 2 nights. The location is beautiful. Not for people with problems with spiders. You are in nature.

We stayed in a cabin close to the pond -3 km away from the farm. In fact, it's a big wooden chalet, perfectly equipped.Very nice place. Surely one of the best places in this area. Many electricity breakdowns during the day. No internet except in the hotel.

We had a wonderful and very romantic stay in one of the cabins at the lake in De Zeekoe guesthouse! It had such a wonderful and peaceful view and atmosphere, we would certainly go back! Staff was also very friendly and food was delicious!!
