This B&B fully deserves it status as the top B&B in Oudtshoorn ( on Trip Advisor ) and in the Top 25 in South Africa .
This was our first visit there and it was amazing to find a place such as this just off a busy , main road in the town.
From the minute you step into the lovely old house the attention to detail is apparent everywhere ,viz we were offered tea or coffee upon arrival ( not done elsewhere ) and our room was very comfortable with everything that we required.
A bonus is the secure , off- street parking .
What is absolutely amazing here is the view when you go out of the back door – the wonderful rolling green lawns down to the river front ( where there are reeds and a bird hide ) and the beautiful , sparkling pool set on the lower terrace where you can really cool off and relax !!
Walking in that area and sitting at the pool transports you far away from the hustle and bustle of any town or city and gives the sense of being out in the countryside, The number of different birds at the river is amazing and if you are very lucky you could see otters in the early morning or late evening !
Breakfast here is something that really sets this B&B apart from any others and Liz is to be complimented for the fantastic spread that she prepares each morning .
This is served to you at your table on the lawn and starts off with a jug of juice for the table plus a wonderful dish of fresh fruit and yoghurt for each table plus your own mini-loaf of home baked bread – delicious !! Then you help yourself to cereals . Coffee or tea is also naturally served to you.
Each day a different cooked meal is prepared and the day we were there it was the most divine omelette ! not a small omelette ( enough for 3 people ) crammed full of onions , mushrooms , bacon and cheese ( really superb ) and this was shared by the 2 of us at our table.
Liz and Des have really established a top class B&B and with the very reasonable rates cannot recommend it more highly . the owners are also very friendly and helpful and you feel as if you are leaving “old friends” when it is time to say good-bye , hopefully to return again !!!!
