Amazing.

It was a great experience from the friendly staff to the cosy feel in the lodges. Would highly recommend the place for anyone to stay whether it's for 1 night or 1 week.

Winter Weskus-lekkerte.

Ons het al 'n paar keer vantevore Draaihoek besoek en die lekker kaggel en heerlike slaapgerief is wonderlik. Die strand is baie mooi en die sonsondergange vanaf die duine, is pragtig.

Winter West Coast Delights.

We have visited Draaihoek a few times before and the nice fireplace and great sleeping comfort are wonderful. The beach is very beautiful and the sunsets from the dunes are beautiful.

Nie regtig wat verwag was nie.

Alhoewel dit aangedui word as a bo-gemiddelde standaard was ons nie regtig baie beïndruk nie. Was gemiddeld op beste. Ek het beter plekke en veral restaurent en diens gekry vir helfte die prys. Ja die strand is fantasties as jy eers oor die duine daar kom, maar dit is omtrent dit.

Not really what was expected.

Although it is indicated as an above average standard we were not really very impressed. Was average at best. I have found better places and especially restaurants and service for half the price. Yes the beach is fantastic once you get over the dunes, but that's about it.

Heerlike Weskus kuier waar die waarde in stilte en skoonheid lê.

Lekker bestemming in 'n ongerepte area, goeie aand of naweek wegbreek sonder kinders. Fasiliteit is netjies en diens is baie goed, maar dit moet nie met soortgelyke verblyfgraderings in die Suid-kaap vergelyk word nie. Die luuksheid lê in die natuur se prag en stilte.

Lovely West Coast visit where the value lies in silence and beauty.

Nice destination in an unspoilt area, good evening or weekend getaway without children. Facility is neat and service is very good, but it should not be compared with similar accommodation ratings in the Southern Cape. The luxury lies in nature's splendor and silence.

Vriendelike mense, skoon blyplek, heerlike etes.

Baie rustig. Skakel lekker af daar. Mense baie vriendelik en hulpvaardig. Die etes is heerlik. In blomme tyd sal dit nog mooier daar wees. Kampplek sal vorentoe handig te pas kom.

Lieflike eenhede en die personeel is baie vriendelik en behulpsaam. Die kort stap see toe os 'n groot bederf.

Die see is 'n kort stappie weg van jou eenheid. Die natuur is 'n belewenis. Vir seker 'n plek wat ek sal aanbeveel vir elke persoon.

Lovely units and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The short walk to the sea is a great treat.

The sea is a short walk away from your unit. Nature is an experience. For sure a place I would recommend to every person.

Baie lekker gekuier en restaurant was van hoë gehalte, het wel 'n TV gemis. Dit sou lekker gewees het om die keuse te hê.

Het lekker gekuier, maar weer het ongelukkig nie saamgespeel nie, was baie mistig!

Mooi lodge.

Die lodge is mooi en netjies. Kort wel bietjie instandhouding. Chalets is nie baie privaat nie, met die gaste en werknemers wat voor die huisie verbystap. Dalk plan maak met struike of muurtjies om verbygangers te keer. Ook dan sal mens die groot deure kan oopmaak en oop los sonder dat mense wat verbystap kan inkyk. Ook min vensters om in die dag en nag oop te maak in erge hitte-omstandighede. Geen waaiers of lugreëling.

Beautiful lodge.

The lodge is beautiful and neat. It does need some maintenance though. The chalets aren't very private and other guests and staff just walk by. Maybe you can put up some bushes or wall to prevent this. You would then be able to open the big doors and leave them open without people looking in. There's also not a lot windows to open during the day or night when the rooms gets hot. No fans or air-conditioning.

Pleasant, but understaffed in the morning at breakfast

Stay was pleasant, but in the morning only the chef is on duty who has to prepare the food, take orders and make cappuccinos. Waited a very long time for breakfast, although it was very tasty.

Wat 'n verrasing!

Tussen niks en nêrens lê hierdie pragtige lodge vol verrasings. Ons het die hele herehuis gehuur met lieflike dekor en lekker warm kaggels. Die personeel was absoluut puik en hulpvaardig en die kamers ruim met luukse beddegoed. Die etes was uitsonderlik voorberei. Beslis 'n vyfster bederf.

What a surprise!

Between nothing and nowhere lies this beautiful lodge full of surprises. We rented the whole manor house with lovely decor and warm fireplaces. The staff was absolutely excellent and helpful and the rooms spacious with luxurious bedding. The meals were prepared exceptionally. Definitely 5 star accommodation.

Rustig, stil en innerlike herlaai.

Baie netjies en goed ontwerp en uitgelê. Vriendelike, professionele diens met mooi omgewing en heerlike etes op terrein voorberei. Ten sterkste aanbeveel. Die stilte en die skoonheid van die veld, sand en see laat jou gemoed stil raak.
