Peace and serenity and a moderately challenging hike.

We had a blissful and relaxing stay, disconnected from the world. We were upgraded to the 'honeymoon cottage' due to a double booking. Please upgrade the honeymoon cottage. It is decidedly unromantic in its layout! Allowing pets in a 'botanical retreat' is questionable, as one expects pristine nature. Ditto the cat/dog hair on the blankets? I would also lose the TV. The cottages are perfectly equipped with everything needed for a comfortable visit. Just enjoy the silence.

Wittebroodeenheid is goed toegerus. Baie mooi uitsig en privaat.

Blykbaar a.g.v. nuwe eienaars moet alles nog opgedateer word. 'n Inligtingsbrosjure oor die area en staproetes sal baie help.

Great getaway for a short weekend in nature.

The cottage is the perfect size for a couple to relax and enjoy a weekend in nature. The stars were incredible - and even better when viewed from the jacuzzi. There are a few hiking trails that are well marked and a great activity for any skill level. There might be an event venue because we could hear music and partying on Friday night, but that was over by 23:00 and the rest of our stay was quiet and relaxing - great for reading and spending quality time together.

Beddegoed was vuil met aankom wat baie teleurstellend was. Ek is nie iemand wat nie betaal vir 'n plek nie, maar ek moet sê dit was baie teleurstellend dat die beddegoed vuil was en dan die huis effens onnet gelos is. Verder was dit n keerlike kuier.

Was baie lekker en rustig. Die omgewing is pragtig en die huisie goed toegerus.

Is 'n rustige omgewing waar mens goed kan rus in die pragtige omgewing. Die stap roete was goeie oefening met 'n baie mooi uitsig. Die roete-bordjies aan die begin kort dalk net weer so bietjie 'n verf, maar met al die klipbakens het ons die pad heel goed gevind. Ek dink ook net dit sal dalk nice wees om dalk iemand te ontmoet wat daar werk. Dit was heel fine met ons om direk na die huisie toe te beweeg en weer ook so net uit te gaan, maar soms soek mens net daai aanrakingspunt met die mense by wie jy 'n plek huur. Maar verder was ons verblyf baie lekker en die rus was goed gewees. Baie dankie.

Beautiful location and well appointed cottage.

What a beautiful location and the cottage had absolutely everything. The jacuzzi on the deck is an absolute winner. We will be going back for sure, 100%. One improvement Cederkloof should make immediately it to map and time the walks in the kloof and create a handout for the guests. I was quite surprised and disappointed that there was no information available at all.

Die ligging is asemrowend. Maar die huisie se badkamer laat veel te wense.

Ons het in Kothuis 2 gebly en die stort se mure was so morsig vuil. Die badkamer se mure aan die onderkant makeer n verf/teëls want dis ook vuil. Ek weet dis n landelike gebied maar die vlieë was so oorweldigend. Geen doom of insekdoder beskikbaar. Die skoonmakers het vergeet van ons, ons moes toe self skoon handdoeke en toiletpapier gaan haal by die kantoor. Geen WiFi beskikbaar in die kothuis nie, so enige iets wat jy benodig moet jy na die kantoor ry want daar is ook geen sein.

Okay.

Some cockroaches and had a fly problem, had to purchase my own insect killer. My cottage jacuzzi was not as private as I would have liked. One shower drain was a little blocked. Front door did not close flush. No one at reception to welcome or take to flat or advise how things worked. No one at reception the whole weekend. Jacuzzi was too hot to use first night.

Cederkloof Botanical Retreat 's response

Hi Ricardo,

Thank you for your taking the time to write a Review, you were very un-sure from the Tuesday when I received your 1st call, and I did explain to you how things work with COVID and our Protocol with the Check inn, should I haven't done that I would have understand, given such a review , after we arranged everything for you, everyday new towels, black bag everything you asked for we did that for you. I even brought you some candles the Friday evening for the flies.

I am very sorry that you experienced Cederkloof in such a way you are describing it to be.

Once again we take everything in consideration and will always improve our Standards.

Warm Regards,

Anja smit

This is a perfect getaway to help unwind from the day to day city life. The tranquility and calmness was amazing to just switch off from the rest of the world for a few days.

The cottage itself was neat and tidy and shows you that you don't need a lot of space. The tranquillity and silence were amazing, just you and nature. Perfect for couples, family and 4 legged friends.

Lovely location and the cottage (the honeymoon suite in our case) is well stocked with most necessities.

However a little TLC is required in order to fully provide the accommodation expected. Examples are outside light hanging by its wire, badly warped metal grate in inside fireplace. The previous guests had broken the bottom bottle shelf in the fridge and as we were 4 adults and 2 infants, we really needed something a little bigger. I called Anya and she arranged rapid delivery of a replacement fridge within a couple of hours. Very impressive service!

Ongelooflik.

Dis rustig en privaat, natuur is beeldskoon. Die huisie was ruim, hoë plafonne, bed en beddegoed was hoë gehalte. Die feit dat daar geen sein is nie, is 'n pluspunt. Hulle het die slaapbank opgemaak vir my kinders, wat regtig lekker was. Borrelbad was aan toe ons daar aankom, wat 'n bederf. Ons sal verseker terug wees. Een van my gunsteling plekke waar ek al ooit gebly het. 4 klein voorstelle: ons het geen skêr of haardroër gesien in die huisie nie. Miskien kan daar ook swem handdoeke vir die borrelbad wees en 'n badmatjie, want die vloere kan glibberig wees met die in en uit spring uit die Jacuzzi.

Die perfekte wegbreek.

Cederkloof is die perfekte wegbreek as jy wil wegkom van die geraas. Jy kan jouself besig hou met staproetes op die perseel of jy kan net op die stoep sit en voëlkyk. Die jacuzzi is gereed wanneer jy daar aankom, en jy kan sommer dadelik begin ontspan. Daar is nie sein by die huisies nie, so jy kan behoorlik afskakel. En as jy regtig die buitewêreld moet kontak is daar WiFi by ontvangs. Baie dankie aan Anja, Yvette en die span! Ons sal beslis terug wees!

Pragtige ligging.

Daar was effe verwarring oor die kostes van die Jacuzzi. Het toe op die ou end nie ekstra betaal vir die gebruik van Jacuzzi nie. Ons het baie gehou van die ethos van Cederkloof, kon wel nie lekker die herwinningsprojekte ondersteun nie - slegs een vuilgoeddrom en wou nie herwinning los buite laat rondlê nie.

Natuurskoon, skoon en netjies.

Ons was aangenaam verras deur die oord. Beeldskone natuur met ongelooflike natuurlike tuine en sterreprag snags. Die huis was pragtig skoon en alle creature comforts was beskikbaar. Ook die eerste plek waar ons ordentlike wyn- en koeldrankglase gekry het. Komplimentêre koffiebone en rooibostee word voorsien in die huis. Die jacuzzi op die stoep is heerlik. Die diens en gasvryheid is noememswaardig. Dit was heerlik om ons hond te kon saamneem waar so so welkom was. Die onthaallokaal met swembad is prentjiemooi vir ‘n mediumgrootte-funksie. Mens kan vir ure gaan stap, ons het ook gestap tussen die sitrusboorde. Ons sal vir seker teruggaan.

Beautiful setting and amazing views.

The cleanliness of the unit can be improved. Daily servicing of the unit does not take place as advertised (one needs to request in advance if required) the administration that goes with the request is not simple and easy, as there is no phone signal at the unit.

Botanical hideaway.

If you like to spend time outdoors and love fynbos, then this is the place to go to. There are beautiful hiking trails and a labyrinth. The jacuzzi on your doorstep, is relaxing and refreshing. The units are well equipped. It is near enough to go to town if you need something, yet far enough to enjoy the peace and quiet.

Sad but true.

The first evening we did not have a working jacuzzi, the facilities didn’t have wine glasses (probably because of the jacuzzi and people breaking it? Perhaps plastic?) and the wood was wet so had to make alternative plans for food. I appreciate that Eskom told them that power will be out until 6pm, due to repairs to the power station - also just a little strange that exactly the same excuse was used last time we visited. The facilities are getting a bit run down and dirty looking. Door handles are grubby, top of the fridge is sticky-dusty so are the window sills. The bed is clean and comfortable. That’s probably what counts. The dishes were not dried off, plates still had water in them and were put away wet. The toilet kept on running as it’s leaking and is rather noisy when trying to sleep. The valve doesn’t turn off even if you turn the tap closed. The place is perfectly functional but it’s not what it used to be. The garden has grown beautifully and I wish the rooms reflected the same magnificence as the garden of late. Perhaps some care would do the trick.

Cederkloof Botanical Retreat 's response

Dear Willem.
The power outages are debilitating to businesses as you might know. To say that we use it as an excuse does not make any sense, but it is also incorrect. We contacted you more than 24 hours before your arrival that there was a scheduled power interruption due to maintenance by Eskom. This interruption ended within an hour of your arrival and the correction seems to have eliminated non-load shedding interruptions in power on the line that serves our immediate area.
Our cottages are stocked with stemless and high-quality wine glasses, same as our whiskey and beer glasses, and are chosen above-stemmed wine glasses due to the danger of breakages around the pool.
We have been doing and will continue to do upgrades and maintenance to our cottages for your peace and comfort. My sincere apologies if there were details unattended to in your unit, we will take steps to correct those.
Warm regards
Yvette

Beautiful spot, beautiful home away from home.

The spot was beautiful and clean, with lovely extras like coffee beans and firelighters. The location is divine and to be able to relax in the jacuzzi, take a walk on the trails, and hang out around the braai. We had a lovely time!

Lovely, peaceful weekend in nature.

We really enjoyed the tranquillity of nature. We both walked / climbed the trails. Our house was private. Kitchen is well equipped. Our previous visit was in 2001 and we were pleasantly surprised by the vegetation that was put in place.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Heerlike rustige naweek in die natuur.

Ons het die rustigheid van die natuur vreeslik geniet. Ons het albei die trails geloop/klim. Ons huis was privaat gewees. Kombuis is goed toegerus. Ons vorige besoek was in 2001 en ons was aangenaam verras deur die plantegroei wat aangebring is.

Scenically beautiful and peaceful location.

Although everyone's needs and expectations are different, but this was the perfect place for us. We enjoy the outdoors, nature and peace and quite and this place has it all. As a specialist on Cape botany, I can only congratulate you on your indigenous garden and replanting of cedars, well done. The attention to detail in the cottage needs to be mentioned. Where in a self-catering establishment will you get coffee beans, a grinder and a plunger! We will certainly be back for a longer stay, one night on the way back from a flower trip was far too short.

Net wat die dokter sou voorskryf!

'n Mens is partymaal teleurgestel as die werklikheid nie die advertensie fotos gestand doen nie, maar nie hierdie keer nie. Ons was bevoorreg om huisie nr 4 (die honeymoon-huisie) bespreek te kry, en het bietjie meer vir hom betaal as die ander, maar dit was elke sent werd. Alles was pragtig skoon, met verwelkomende veldblommetjies en sepies in mooi houers. Die Jacuzzi was klaar aan die gang en die uitsig van daar oor julle netjies fynbos tuin en berge het ons soos konings laat voel. Groot glasdeur aan die voorkant en vensters wat tot by die dak strek aan die agter kant by die badkamer gee jou 'n onbelemmerde uitsig reg rondom. Hier is duidelik moeite gedoen om seker te maak jy ervaar jou omgewing binnekant ook. En in absolute privaatheid. Wel gedaan aan die nuwe eienaars. Julle het 'n wenresep daar beet.

As jy absolute rus en vrede soek, weg van die gejaag van die stad, dan is Cederkloof Botanical Retreat net die plek vir jou. Dit is lekker stil en privaat en alles wat jy nodig het, is in jou chalet. Al wat jy moet doen is opdaag en die res is ontspanning, ontspanning en ontspanning. Die natuur en die sterre is jou bure en vir meer kan jy nie vra nie. Ons sal definitief gereeld uitspan hier.

A gem in the Cederberg.

What a magical place to stay. Everything was perfect, from the friendly, informative hosts to the beautiful cottages and amazing view. What a pleasure to stay at this beautiful establishment. The Jacuzzi was just perfect after long and difficult mountain biking rides. The cottage was very well equipped, perfectly clean and had everything we needed. Loved the very eco-friendly theme of the place and the natural gardens are just stunning. The added bonus of braai wood on arrival was a very thoughtful gesture. I can't wait to return!

Where to start. The place is amazing! The spa bath is nice and warm, and as my wife says, 'nice to lie in the spa while the husband is braai-ing.' The bed is comfortable and large and the accommodation has whatever you need for a weekend away. Looking forward to our next visit.

We really enjoyed our stay and the location is great - close to Cape Town but it feels a million miles away once you are there. We will definitely go again.

Beautiful, quiet, a must for resting your soul!

Cederkloof Botanical Retreat was truly an experience! We were a group of 5 people, two of whom were Germans. Everyone enjoyed the scenery and tranquility. The accommodation was very well equipped and nothing came short. The biggest bonus was the beautiful starry sky that appeared before us in the evenings, it was awesome! And also the rock paintings were really special. The owner himself loves nature and has accompanied us to the drawings on the farm. There are also darling dogs who are very calm but loving. We will definitely come back again!

Natuurskoon, rustig, 'n moet vir wanneer jy rus vir jou siel soek!

Cederkloof Botanical Retreat was waarlik 'n belewenis! Ons was 'n groep van 5 mense waarvan twee Duitsers was. Almal het die natuurskoon en rustigheid geniet. Die verblyf was baie goed toegerus en niks was kort nie. Die grootste bonus was die pragtige sterrehemel wat in die aande voor ons verskyn het, dit was asemrowend! En dan ook die rotstekeninge was regtig besonders. Die eienaar is self baie lief vir die natuur en het ons vergesel na die tekeninge op die plaas. Daar is ook liefling honde wat baie rustig is, maar liefdevol. Ons sal beslis weer terugkom!

Such an amazing getaway and experience. The cottages provides all you need and more, location is amazing. Beautiful hiking trails, access to the pool, and relaxing in the Jacuzzi are among the great activities available. I really enjoyed lounging on the pouffes on the porch, and taking in the beautiful surrounds. The story and projects of the farm also add to the experience. Really hope to come back to possibly experience in winter!

Tranquil nature.

They didn't give us the full set of info about each aspect of the unit. Only got that upon enquiry, in the process wasting a lot of electricity on the first night. Special tongs for the coals would be helpful in stead of having to use the meat tong, but apart from that the braai facilities were good.

Heerlik in die natuur.

Ongelukkig nie volledige inligting oor elke aspek in die huisie verskaf nie. Eers by navraag uitgevind. In die proses baie elektrisiteit gemors eerste nag. Koletang sal aanwins wees, ipv om vleistang te gebruik. Braaigeriewe andersins baie goed.

Pragtige, rustige omgewing en baie goed toegeruste huisie.

Die huisie se uitleg is goed en dit gee 'n gevoel van ruimte. Omgewing absoluut pragtig en baie moeite word ingesit om inheemse plante orals opo die terein gevestig te kry. 'n Ware lushof in die natuur. Goeie linne en matras. Goed toegeruste kombuis en lekker kuierstoep. Lekker koffiebone met maler en 'plunger', 'n ware onverwagse bonus! Die versorging (netheid) van die teëlvloere kan bietjie meer aandag kry. Baie aangename, hulpvaardige en vriendelike ontvangs.

Ons het Cederkloof geboek as deel van ons wittebrood en het dit geweldig baie geniet. Die huisies is goed toegerus. Ons het in kothuis 2 gebly, dit was rustig en privaat. Dit is wonderlik om in die jaccuzzi te sit met die braai vuurtjie wat langs jou brand, terwyl jy die sonsondergang bewonder. Ons sal hierdie plekkie vir almal aanbeveel.

Lekker gerus in pragtige en rustige omgewing.

Huisie nr 1 netjies en goed toegerus. Daar kort egter bietjie onderhoud ons Jacuzzi se deksel was vol krake, voordeur se knip wou nie altyd oopmaak en van die "grout" tussen die teëls het losgekom. Andersins het ons baie lekker gebly veral die kaggel geniet op 'n baie koue aand. Het dit ook geniet om die voëls dop te hou.

Blissful nature, with a few snags.

Cederkloof is wonderfully located - neatly tucked away on the hills of Citrusdal. We stayed in unit 6 and upon arrival around 7 pm, the key was left in the door as promised. The unit smelt strongly of fire which was a bit overwhelming. Overall the unit was well equipped with all that is needed for self-catering. A big disappointment was discovering that our Jacuzzi would not switch on, in spite of wall plug being on. We contacted Yvette and she showed up at our unit within 5 minutes (she lives on site at unit 10). This was great and we were quickly told that the guests who had stayed over the night before must have switched off the Jacuzzi on the Jacuzzi's power box as opposed to the wall plug as instructed. We were delighted and looked forward to a night under the stars in the Jacuzzi. This too, was not to be. Next disappointment was the Jacuzzi subsequently not heating up. It remained on for more than 2 hrs and remained cold. We alerted Yvette who promised that someone would come out in the morning. The Jacuzzi debacle continued on until 5 pm the following day, meaning we had essentially lost a night and a full day of use of the Jacuzzi (which may I add, was the primary reason we had chosen Cederkloof). Nevertheless, following the efforts of 3 maintenance guys, the Jacuzzi was fixed around sunset, and we tried to make the most of the time we had left. Hats off to Yvette who expressed her sincerest apologies and made great strides to make up for the time we had lost. Our experience quickly turned around and Yvette was more than willing to grant us additional time on the Sunday which we made full use of. Cleanliness of the bathroom was the only real negative I walk away with. The shower was in dire need of a scrub - grime and mould was very visible, tiles along the bath and walls were dirty, wash basin too needed a good scrub, and the floors were in need of a good sweep and mop. Minor changes and improvements on cleanliness will undoubtedly allow for an even better stay! (Lastly, though promised, cleaning services on the Saturday morning did not in fact pitch). In spite of it all, I would definitely return. Positive and fair feedback can only lead to future enhancements and advancements.

Dit was baie goed en ons sal beslis weer daarvan gebruik maak.

Ons het heerlik gekuier, heerlik geslaap, heerlik gebraai en die stilte was hemels. Vriendelike en hulpvaardige diens en die komplimentêre lemoene was heerlik!

Pragtig en rustig.

Ons het baie lekker gebly by Cederkloof! Die ligging is pragtig met al die sitrusbome. Ons het ook baie lekker gestap op die een staproete. Al negatiewe kommentaar wat ek het is dat die plekkie bietjie soos vuurrook geruik het weens die kaggel in die huisie. Maar bygesê is ek baie sensitief vir rookreuke. Verder het ons dit baie geniet!

We stayed for 3 days and enjoyed every moment and our dogs had the time of their lives.

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would love to return some day. Our pets love running about in the mountains, there are many ticks so I suggest making sure your pets are protected. The views are lovely the facilities are adequate and comfortable. A lovely little home away from home experience.

Absolutely fantastic!

What an amazing place! There is nothing better than experiencing the sunset from a Jacuzzi with a glass of wine in hand and a fire burning next to you. I would recommend it to anyone who just wants to rest and spend quality time with nature and loved ones.

Absoluut fantasties!

Wat 'n ongelooflike plekkie! Daar is niks beter as om die sonsondergang te beleef vanuit 'n Jacuzzi met 'n glas wyn in die hand en 'n braaivleisvuurtjie wat brand langs jou. Ek sal dit aanbeveel vir enige iemand wat net wil rustig word en kwaliteit tyd spandeer met natuur en geliefdes.

Best experience!

The facilities were clean, impressive and inviting. The service was awesome. The area itself, was secluded, private, amongst nature, exactly the break away needed from the hustle and bustle of city life. Would definitely recommend anyone looking for a break away from the city, to use Cederkloof Botanical Retreat.
