a bat managed to get into our cottage during our second night. noone of the staff could be reached via the reception at 10pm... so we had to spend this night in the cottage with light on to keep the bat away from us. staff told us the next day that some time ago a bat has already managed to get into the cottage - so this is no new problem... we would like to be informed about such things before our stay and not after! the next morning i got the shock of my life when i realized a frog in the darkest corner of my shoe when i wanted to get dressed - somehow even this quite big animal managed to get into to cottage to spend the night with us!
good facilities, nice house and surrounding next to addo elephant park

1-) No cleanness 2. ) wifi is a big fraud they give u only 100 mb 3.) cockroach on beds and in bathroom and when I told them they did nothing 4-) a big catch they say book for room and make you pay for one person 5-) military timing routine - not a place to relax
Nothing at all

The fact that we had to leave.......
We loved our stay at De Old Drift! Rooms are big and spacious and very clean. Lovely pool area and beautiful gardens. We had dinner on our night of arrival and Chef Wonder's food was wonderful! Staff very friendly. I highly recommend!

Accommodation was excellent, the staff are very friendly and always willing to assist. We stayed for 1 night and had evening Dinner in their Lapa, dinner was excellent and very well presented. We will definitely come stay with Old Drift again! If we can give 1 tip this would be to have Dinner at De Old Drift!!

We had three nights and certain items were not automatically replaced; however, after bringing this to the attention of staff, this was speedily done. We had two evening meals which I found disappointing. I would have preferred far simpler food (especially as this is a three star guest farm).
Rooms are very spacious. The breakfast were delicious. Lovely pool. Staff friendly and always willing to help.

The staff made us feel so welcome. They are friendly, professional people who go out of their way to make sure that your stay is enjoyable. The rooms are very nice, the beds are comfortable and everything is spotlessly clean. The food (dinner and breakfast) was fantastic and very well presented.

We loved the location of this property, the extremely friendly service, the excellent food and the beautiful surroundings of De Old Drift. A lot of thought and personal care is given to guest and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We had a self catering cottage with very good facilities. As we arrived quite late (9 pm) it was no problem to check in. The garden is very nice and the location very close to Addo Elephant.

Location, great for an overnight (or longer stay) when contemplating a trip into Addo National Elephant Park. Delightful Chalet for a couple. Clean, huge bed, great heating & air conditioning, good security, quiet. Efficient & helpful staff. Perfect for what we were looking for; would stay again & also recommend to others.

It was just a little bit cold. Recommend more Rugs on the floor. Gas Heater - Fin Heater.
It is near the Addo elephant park. Walk to the river. The big space for the kids. Everything was clean and neat. Thanks for the 3 days that we spend with you it was wonderful.

The peace and quiet

About 15 km from the entrance to Addo national park.
The cottage we stayed at was nice and the located in a beautiful valley. Breakfast was also good and we had one dinner there which was good.
June 12, 2014
That it was 15 minutes drive from the Addo Park.
The fact that everything we needed was there. The beds were very good, clean, comfortable. The owners lovely people. I would certainly recommend the "Old Drift"

The apartment was spacious with a fully equiped self catering unit, which was above our expectation. The apartment was booked for a honeymoon couple, and the reception went out of the way to make the room look nice with rose petals etc...

Just like home but better with all the help. Biancke was an excellent hostess! Will go again!

The floor was sticky and dirty in both rooms! The room was not that clean.
Spacious room, value for money. Close by the Addo Elphant Park Very quiet Nice breakfast
May 11, 2014
The room was already a bit worn, the room service didn't do their work properly on the second day, the staff (we only saw one young lady) was pretty reserved and we found the breakfast very expensive (and we didn't take it).
The room was well appointed and the area was nice and well taken care of.

Our unit was next to the main path which made it noisy and it was one of the older units. The bedrooms were dark.
Great value for money and very central. Beautiful gardens.
April 14, 2014
Everything was lovely. Friendly reception and a peaceful stay conveniently close to the Addo Elephant Park. Will definitely return for a relaxing vacation. lovely views.
