Review by Lesley Roberts (Johannesburg)

Just what the Dr ordered! A place to stay away from the madding crowds. I asked for a room which was private in order for me to have my own space. What a wonderful surprise, l couldn't have asked for more. Peace, comfort, good food, wonderful bird life, long walks in nature, yet close enough to Sedgefield where i visited friends etc. Mike & Harja are wonderful hosts, sensitive to your needs, but available at all times. I shall definitely return to this healing, peaceful environment. Thank you, Lesley

Review by ROB P (Toronto, Canada)

If you are looking for a beautiful quiet out-of-the-way place, The Old Trading Post is IT! The place is very comfortable, tastefully decorated, full of thoughtful little touches and very quiet. The hosts are lovely and couldn't be more helpful. As we relaxed in the lovely surroundings, we were able to bird-watch right outside our room. I highly recommend it and can't wait to return.

Review by Hayley & Paul (Cape Town, South Africa)

We absolutely loved every moment of our stay! The decoration and furniture really give you the taste of an "Old Trading Post" while still remaining modern and comfortable. We spent 3 nights in the Garden Room which suited us perfectly. Mike and Harja are fantastic hosts and truly know how to make you feel at home from the moment you arrive. It's also an easy drive to and from Sedgefield where we spent most of our time visiting family. Make sure you don't oversleep or you'll miss out on the tasty breakfast! We highly recommend this place to anyone wanting a few nights stay in the Garden Route or even an overnight pit stop while traveling through.

A hidden paradise! Since we are back here in Germany we missed this place very much. It is not easy to describe, you have to come and feel the spirit of this place.Also very friendly and hospitally owner. In short words - we love this place and we can highly recommend this to everyone.
