The road to the farmhouse is not in good condition and SUV or 4x4 highly recommended. Personally, I would prefer to start dinner earlier than 8.00pm - however I am sure there are others who would disagree. Dinner is a highlight of the Farmhouse and it needs time to be enjoyed as it is beautiful experience.
The setting is beautiful and peaceful. Staff are very friendly and service is excellent. Food is of a very high standard and is the essence of the stay.

Food was of only average quality. Despite being hailed a gastronomic hotel, we were severely disappointed. 5 course dinner was somewhat tasteless and the dessert frankly awful. We have eaten elsewhere for a fraction of the cost and far far better

Stunning location! Cozy room, fire crackling in the little fireplace, fantastic meal, good filter coffee in the room and an awesome tub. Proper relaxation. Would have liked to be able to do a hike the next day but weather did not permit.

The roads leading up to the farmhouse are terrible - 30km riddled with thousands of deep potholes & another 10km of sharp gravel & rocks. Only travel here with a 4x4. This should be stated on the description The rooms do not have phones & you will have to find the manager if there is an emergency The weather was very chilly & only source of indoor heat was the fireplace which was difficult to get going Lots & lots of bugs. Found some spiders in the bed
Excellent gourmet cuisine Beautiful scenery Friendly & helpful staff Complimentary champagne on a special occasion - appreciated

Would have preferred a choice of meals. They should think of putting a swimming pool in for the stinking hot summer days.
Fantastic setting, quiet, peaceful.....mountains and river stretch out in front of you. Food is excellent. Staff are excellent.

Bed is average but am looking for a didn't like
The meals are legendary and did not disappoint on our 3rd visit. Staff are awesome

the bed was not good - flatter than flat, the limited breakfast options (especially for someone who doesn't like ham / bacon), the aubergine course at dinner had a tomatoe relish/sauce which literally tasted like tinned tomoatoes ... I am still recovering although the sorbet did help
The home from home feeling. The fact that it was unique and not more of the same. The fact that coffee and muffins and cake etc was available and not extra to the cost. The food was generally very very good, just a few niggles here and there with some of the courses.

The ambience, delicious food, position, attitude of the staff, general layout all simply brilliant and really special. A great experience, so relaxing yet such delicious food in an idyllic setting made this experience extremely unique. Special thanks to Leza and Phillipa and all staff from The Simpson family from Australia.

Location is lovely. Rooms are comfortable and spacious, we stayed in the Swedish themed cottage and it was just what we were looking for. The food was divine. We are planning another stay in March and can't wait to see what the chef has in store for us. Highly recommended.

Ambience. Exceptional service. Beautiful location. The food was simply sensational. The mythology. The walks. The birds.

We were there on a special. We would have found normal rates beyond our value for money boundries and we do travel the world. Still.. I loved finally getting there. Lauren Lok Johannesburg
After hearing about Cleopatra years ago because of its restaurant, we finally got there. Truly off the beaten track our 1 night should have been two to explore the stunning surrounds. However, to eat "that fancy" for longer would probably not be our choice. But if Celopatra's renouned chef offered 3 night midweek cooking class packages with recommended wine by the glass per course thrown in and accommo dation... That would be a must for like minded foody friends. However, please be mindful of the poor South African economy and, perhaps, like most private game lodges offer a local and international rate. I'd be first on that list with some daring cooks! - Lauren Lok , JHB

Nothing I didn't like
Beautiful location, super staff, gorgeous room, excellent food. If you want a gourmet getaway in magnificent surroundings this is the place to find it.

If I have to mention something: The little step in our room. Only one side of the bed had an electric blanket. The blanket on top was so deeply tucked in that there was hardly any blanket left over to cover my shoulders.
The fireplaces, the excellent food and the way it was explained before dinner - we knew exactly what we were eating. The little history lesson. Gardens, friendly people.

Nothing. Our whole experience was excellent.
We celebrated our 18 year wedding anniversary at Cleopatra. I couldn't think of a better place. We can't wait to get back there. The staff were excellent and the food was delightful and the room was very comfortable!

What is not to like in heaven?
The staff (Sitle, Clinton, Philippa and Lise) were very friendly and shared historic and personal information about the area and farmhouse. The meals were gorgeous and the atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. It was my birthday and upon returning to our room a bottle of sparkling wine and a chocolate cake awaited us! The nature surrounding the mountain farmhouse is something spectacular - our first introduction to the Kamberg area. We will definitely go back soon.

The French wine at R500 was overpriced. Husband is French and we know French wines and prices VERY well in France.
For a one night romantic getaway it was superb! The attention to detail was commendable: scented candles in the bedroom atet dinner, floating candles and rose petals in a warm bath, refill of your wine glass at the fire without glancing around to attract the waiter's attention. And like Clinton said: "every day is a special occasion to be alive!"
