Reviewed 28 June 2014

Stayed here for a school sports tour. Very comfortable accom but rooms not overly big. Standard length beds which is fine unless over 6". Breakfast not included in rate and not great rather go out for breakfast

Room Tip: Ask for one away from reception. Not far

We had the most perfect time at the Oakhurst. The room was amazing, they were able to cater to my needs for a bath and view of the mountains. So much space and everything to the T - much much more than I expected, and very reasonable price. We ate breakfast and dinner there and again - professional service and wonderful meals, fresh. It was beyond my expectations and I cannot fault anything. I have been to very "upperclass" hotels but could always find something wrong, and I could not at the Oakhurst.

Room Tip: Rooms that look out of the pool, and, if you are a little bit older, ask for a room with a comfortab...

In George for 2 days for training. I am very pleased with my choice of hotel after an exhaustive internet search, Oakhurst ended up being a good choice. Very centrally located, I was pleasantly surprised after a long day on the road from Cape Town to receive such a warm welcome from the guy who opened the door and brought in my case, the fantastic reception staff who offered to make a fire if I wanted to braai to the lovely room with access to the garden and swimming pool. The local delivery man brought me dinner from the Spur last night and the room service dinner tonight was excellent. Really hope to visit here again.

Really tranquil despite being in close proximity to CBD. Has a boutique feel to it and neatly appointed rooms capable of accommodating children as well due to the thatched roof space! Lush green lawns and a country feel. Coffee may not be espressed, but you can request a plunger! Good eating establishments in walking distance. The rates most impressive(nov 2013), and when compared with the mainstream hotel groups close by, a no brainer!

This was my second visit to the Oakhurst Hotel and I was once again impressed by the friendly staff and effort put into making my stay as pleasant as possible. The rooms are neat and clean and the beds are very comfortable. The hotel is very central and close to shops and schools. A good breakfast is served by very friendly staff and the restaurant offers dinners on certain Evenings. Wifi is good, but only 50mb free on the first day. The rest has to be bought.

My only real problem with the hotel has nothing to do with management or staff, but with the actual building. The walls are very thin and every sound or movement from your neighbours and the floor above can be heard clearly. If you are a light sleeper, you will definitely need ear plugs!

If you can get past the noise problem, this hotel comes highly recommended!

Room Tip: The downstairs rooms are the better ones, although you will have to live with the sounds coming from...

I recently stayed in this hotel on business but can see great value in terms of leisure usage as well.
Very comfortable rooms with recently refurbished bathrooms. The loft rooms will be great for families.
The locaton is in the hub of George so lends itself to doing business or as a stop over or hub for this region. There were some great winter/off season weekend packages on offer too.
I would suggest you ask for rate inclusive of breakfast as the stand alone breakfast menu would be a little pricy unless you are to make it a start of the day feast.
Well groomed staff and homely vibe.

Room Tip: some dowmstairs rooms open onto the general pool area. Great for some but privacy a problem if thats...

As soon as we walked in the hotel, we didn’t have a good impression. Common areas definitely need an update, since furnishing looks old and, thus, I thought the place wouldn’t be well kept. But it was. On the other hand, rooms are very good, clean and well decorated. Location is very central, one block from the main street and close to restaurants and some shops. Breakfast and wi-fi was not included, and this is something, in my opinion, they should change, since whist in South Africa we had fantastic breakfasts without any extra charge and also free wireless. Finally, staff is very pleasant, I even watched a football match of their national championship with the guys at night.
