De sfeervolle Eight Bells Mountain Inn ligt aan de voet van de Robinson Pas te midden van het berglandschap tussen Oudtshoorn en Mosselbaai.
• Squash- en tennisbanen
• Rit met ezelkar
Het plaatsje Oudtshoorn is een echte trekpleister en mag dan ook niet ontbreken tijdens uw vakantie Zuid-Afrika. Oudtshoorn wordt ook wel de 'struisvogelhoofdstad' van de wereld genoemd, omdat men hier op grote schaal struisvogels fokt. Vroeger vooral vanwege de veren, tegenwoordig voornamelijk voor consumptie. Er zijn verschillende boerderijen open voor bezoekers.
Indien u Zuid-Afrika per auto verkent moet u beslist een autorit maken door de Grootswartberge tussen de Kleine en de Grote Karoo. Dit is een van de mooiste en grilligste autoroutes van Zuid-Afrika.
"Fabulous too-short long weekend"
We have been coming to Eight Bells Mountain In since our children were very very young. One of the many joys of Eight Bells is that it works for all ages and interests. We have returned several times as adults with adult children and all enjoy it as much as when donkey cart rides and swings were the main attractions. With one adult daughter I recently took a too-short weekend visit to Eight Bells. The beauty, restfulness and energising landscape are repeated in the hotel itself. A refurbishment has miraculously kept to the country inn feel with comfort and cosiness while making the rooms lighter and more airy. We walked, relaxed, dined well and felt the city stresses roll away. We can't wait to go back again which we know from all our years' experience is the Eight Bells Magic.
"A good one night stay"
it was quite far from Mossel Bay - approx 10 miles, which was a surprise. We were in a little log cabin which was fine for a short stay, but small, but perfectly OK. The Dinner was very good. It is easy to find and en route for Oudtsthorn, which is useful.
"Not just a 'traditional' inn"
The general brand position here suggests tradition with tablecloths at dinner and lots of brown furniture. Sure enough, the clientele seem uniformly 50+ on touring holidays. Yet the place is surely also excellent for those seeking activities such as, dare I say it, a younger clientele. Tennis courts, a squash court, several hiking trails some involving a fair bit of ascent, horse riding, a superb bowling green, table tennis, a swimming pool, a snooker table (and one for the kids); with equipment available at reception for free, it's a great offer. Sadly, there are signs of lack of maintenance, the tennis courts need at least a good clean, and maybe re-laying; the table tennis table had a wheel rim missing so the table was not flat. Are these assets being sweated? Another strange thing. We booked a rondavel but on arrival were given a free choice between the rondavel and a conventional room. The rondavel smelt distinctly fusky and we chose the conventional room, which only later did we notice had patches of mould on the ceiling. Had they had complaints? Apart from that the room was nicely presented, though the lack of a fridge is a distinct negative. The website does not offer information on the restaurant menu and we feared a no-competition stitch up, but in fact prices are most reasonable and the food, though not cordon bleu, is quite acceptable. All in all, a nice venue and experience which strangely the owners do not appear to be presenting to best advantage.
"OLD WORLD HOSPITALITY"
This beautifully situated hotel at the foot of Robinson pass is a delight for couples and perfect for families. There is horse riding, ponies for the children, tennis, table tennis a lovely swimming pool and great hiking in the surrounding area. Some staff members have worked there for more than 30 years and are very attentive and friendly. Breakfasts are excellent, variety of fresh fruit and the cooked, offering a variety of choices. Our rondavel was well appointed with a lovely en suite bathroom and overlooking the swimming pool.Unfortunately I am very noise sensitive and these particular rondavels were near the road travelkling up the pass and for me it was too noisy during the night. Better to choose one away from the road. The views of the valley are great and overall this hotel is well worth it if you would like a relaxing stay. My partners and his family had holidayed there every year for 10 years with their young children and this was a happy reunion with their favourite holiday destination!
"Sunday Lunch at Restaurant"
I am a local from the area and from time to time take my family to Eight Bells for a lunch. I booked in advance for three people for the Sunday lunch for Sunday 4 February 2018. On our arrival we were told that we could not have the set lunch outside but we had to have it inside the building, being a beautiful day we then opted for the Al Carte menu. I ordered the specialty Ploughman's Platter and my wife opted for a chicken salad. I asked if they could serve a ciabatta roll with the salad for my wife, the waitress said she would have to check. She came back and said that apparently the ciabatta rolls were only for the sandwiches they served and that it won't be possible. I accepted this and asked for some normal brown bread to accompany my wife's salad. When the food eventually arrived, my platter had two small slices of brown bread with it, the platter consists of cheeses and a liver pate. The amount of bread was completely inadequate for the amount of cheese. My wife's salad had no bread and I then asked for extra bread, I was then told by the waitress that they didn't have extra bread. The couple next to us also had the ploughman's platters and a while after I was told that there were no more bread, the couple was given extra bread...... My wife's salad was also a very boring salad, consisting of just a few slices of chicken breast on top of lettuce and surrounded by fruit, the apples were also already turning brown. In my platter I also had some ham, the ham was excessively fatty and I had to cut away most of the fat to enable it to be eaten. I have had many lunches at eight bells and all were superb but it seems that in recent times the service has gone down. As we left, two other waiters came out of the dining area with plates of food from the Sunday roast buffet and served it to patrons in the garden.....I was told that it wasn't possible. I don't think I will return to Eight Bells, which is unfortunate as I really liked the ambience and surroundings.
