rather expensive Sep 09, 2014
The Zeekoe is a farm a bit outside of town. I learnt about them through a friend who stayed there and did the meerkat tour. We booked the cheapest room what still was quite expensive compared to what we had spent for accommodation the last weeks. When you arrive they greet you with tea or coffee and shower you with tons of information what to do in Oudtshoorn. In some places you get a discount (e.g. meerkat tour, ostrich farm). Our room was clean and quite special because the shower and bathtub were in the same room as the bed. The first night we ate at the Zeekoe. The food was good although a bit pricey. They have a fireplace outside which is really nice but it was too windy when we were there so no one used it. So all in all it was a very pleasant stay. The no go came in the end. When we overlooked the bill we saw that they forgot to charge the main courses and I was honest and told them so. We had a dinner package with starter, main course and dessert. On the next printout she wanted to charge the starters and dessert as well. When I told her she was still wrong she started to get touchy. In the end she still insisted on charging the dessert and we got tired of it and just paid that. She claimed this wasn’t part of the package although they told us something else in the beginning.
