“Fabulous Place... Don't miss it!”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

We spent only one night here and really regret doing so... How I wish I could spend more time here. What a great place to stay. Everything here is so perfect and serene - Cozy rooms, amazing decor, beautiful garden just by the riverside. It is indeed a heaven for bird lovers. The bird hide is just fantastic. And what a fantastic breakfast with fresh home-baked bread, spanish omlette and baked beans, fruits, cereals & coffee. And the best part about this place is that there is nothing fancy about this place. Its indeed a home away from home. Thank you Mr. Des, you were an amazing host. We really enjoyed our stay. And we regret checking-in so late. Hope we come there again!

Well, thank you for such wonderful words. It was a pity you only stayed one night. Well it just means you have to jump on a flight back to SA and this part of W Cape.
Keep well and hope to see youback some day.

We spent two nights here in the riverfront unit in October 2013. It was such a wonderful place - the gardens, the outlook, the privacy, and the presentation of our unit was everything we hoped for and more - only exceeded by the warmth and genuine friendliness of our host Des and the absolutely delicious breakfast! A truly lovely stay, very highly recommended.

Room Tip: While we didn't see the other rooms, we think the location, view and seclusion of the riverfront...

Greetings from a sunny Oudtshoorn. Thanks for the kind words and so glad your days with us were lovely. We always see something happening here and this morning just below us we spotted a very young otter . I was able to photograph it before it went back into the water furrow.
Hope to have you back some day.

We spent only one night last October 2013 but it was enough to understand the high quality of this accomodation. Warm hospitality, faboulous breakfast with freshly baked bread just like to be at home. Rooms with every comforts you can desire. Lovely and quiet garden with fantastic sight to the river. Highly recommended.

One night will have to be 2 or more nights when you visit again. Its the perfect spot to be at home away from home. So happy you enjoyed all we have to offer.

This is our third visit to this wonderful place which is situated in the heart of Oudshoorn. We were welcomed with open arms (as usual) and at the same time left to carry on with whatever we wanted to. Our first evening was spent at a Restaurant up the road which makes the most delicious pizzas and serves local beer. (There are a wide variety of restaurants to choose from) We were given a self catering room to stay in which was meticulous and had all the amenities that we needed. It was separate from the main house so we did not have to wake anyone when we came home late. The second day was spent at a wine farm about 15 minutes up the road from the guesthouse and then a braai for the rugby in Des's and Liz's lovely entertainment area. (you have to see this braai!) Breakfast was a range of cereals, fruit and the biggest, tastiest Spanish omelette you've ever seen together with juice and coffee, Thank you guys for a very enjoyable weekend. You are excellent hosts, your place is wonderful, and we look forward to our next visit.

Glen thank you so much for all these wonderful words. We just feel so chuffed when we see our hard work paying off.
You always welcome to visit for a special omelette.
Keep well and keep fit for that next visit.

We had a warm welcome from Des and fresh coffee which was great as it was a rather chilly day. Our room (#1) was charming, I loved the antique dresser, the tranquil decor, the shiny wooden floors and the dining room where we had delicious breakfast.
The garden is great and the hide is an added perk, but unfortunately, due to the rain we couldn't enjoy them much.
The shower was excellent too.
We had a great time.
Thanks!!

Even though the weather was not good, we are glad you were able to enjoy your time at the Yotclub. Thats what is so nice about our place that good or bad we have fantastic breakfast settings. Next time we will have hot weather with a cold beer as you arrive.

What a pity that we only stayed for one night at this place! The place is truly amazing. So close to the main street of Oudtshoorn, and still oh so quiet! From the rooms (which are very clean and romantic), you can walk into the beautiful (and very spacious!) garden, with a lovely swimming pool and relax area.

Close to the Yotclub B&B, there is a fantastic restaurant called Jemima's, which can not be missed. You can easily walk from the B&B to the restaurant, which is great so you can enjoy the South African wines without driving.
The breakfast at the Yotclub B&B was sumptuous and delicous! The fruit cocktail and the freshly baked (and even still warm) bread were amazing!
Thank you for this fantastic stay!
