“Quirky B&B in the middle of nowhere!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2013

A quirky little estate of colonial houses, beautifully kept grounds, and nothing around for miles. Definitely need your own transport for this one. 20kms out of Outdshoorn town on good but unlit roads. Secure car parking on grounds, and very peaceful. The house contains beautiful old furniture with a bright coloured wall art and decor and some kooky touches. Room was clean with gorgeous old 4 poster bed, white fluffy towels, bathroom products, slippers. A safe and (ostrich egg shaped) mini bar! Only downside of room was that although it’s ok and quite romantic to have a freestanding bath in the corner of the room, to also have a toilet with a small wooden screen to hide behind will soon spoil that ! We had a room with our own access to outside – they lock up the main doors at 11pm, so essential to have one of these rooms if you plan on staying out later. Massive bunch of keys for the various things including metal grill door to your outside access and electric gate for car. Breakfast was serviced by a lovely young girl, with fresh coffee, fresh fruit salad and yoghurt, a choice of hot breakfast or cereal/toast. Fried breakfast was slightly dubious in parts, but the cat seemed to like the sausage, and the rest was at the least, edible. The site manager was there to meet us on arrival, was helpful in recommending where to go in the area and pointed us in the right direction for the best local restaurants. She was also there to see us off the following day, and was a pleasure. Should maybe mention that when we were there, the pool was green and certainly not useable. There is an outdoor terrace where you can breakfast overlooking it. All in all, if you don’t mind the drive to get there, it’s worth a stay for something a bit different, but wouldn’t recommend for more than a couple of nights.

Room Tip: Rooms with direct outside access have an outdoor terrace and are free to come and go once the main e...

We flew into George airport and drove straight to the Ou Pastorie. The drive takes about an hour. The Ou Pastorie is just what the weary city slicker needs to reset the clock. It is situated out of town and it is therefore very quiet and relaxing.

The Ou Pastorie has been beautifully restored with high ceilings, bay windows and wooden floors. Our room was amazing and the service was great!

This must be one of the best hotels in the area!

We stayed in a beautiful bedroom leading to a glorious veranda. The stillness of the surroundings gives you a feeling of unbelievable peace.
Profuse clusters of very fragrant Jasmine Climbing on the arch ways in immaculate garden magnificent…
Well done to all the staff of “Die Ou Pastorie”.
Specially Bernadene. Thank you

I have been meaning to write this review since June 2012 when I stayed at Die Ou Pastorie twice in 7 days. This gives you a clue as to my thoughts about the place.
The refurbishment of this old parsonage has been done to a very high standard with extremely comfortable bedrooms and relaxation areas and there is plenty of secure parking.
The staff are very welcoming and professional and the breakfast is outstanding.
Die Ou Pastorie is only 10 minutes or so by car from Oudsthoorn which gives visitors access to several decent eateries.
This guest house really does offer excellent value for money and most importantly is in a wonderfully peaceful location.

We stayed in the Coach House and which is the fully renovated old coach house. It consisted of a beautiful kitchen, lovely large lounge and a beautiful bedroom, walk in dresser and full bathroom. There is a second double bed in the huge openplan lounge area. We were particularly taken by the lovely yellowwood furniture. it was spotless and the staff was well trained and always eager to help. Breakfast was a treat and more than we could eat. After the hussle and bussle of the KKNK it was lovely to have such a beautiful quite haven to retire to. Well worth the little extra travel to be out of town and to enjoy the peace of the countryside. Our 8 year old had a ball playing outside and there is enough space for him to get rid of all his energy in a safe environment.

This is a very nice renovated place to its original glory with stylish interior decorating. The friendly staffs makes you feel at home. Peace and quiet surroundings are a bonus to relax. Close enough to town but far enough from the buss.

Room Tip: If you like a big shower, choose room no 4.

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Die Ou Pastorie. We were tempted to stay another night just to soak up the peaceful vibes of the beautiful setting and gracious hostess, Bea (?).

We felt pampered, and enjoyed just walking around the premises, even up to the little church nearby. Our only disappointment was that the studio was unavailable for visitors at the time we were there. I would strongly recommend this for all, especially the traveler who has time to relax and enjoy the hotel itself, with all the little extras that make it so special.
