Reviewed 23 July 2012

Superb hotel, with good rooms (2 X double beds), excellent breakfast and good facilities. Not imposing and very friendly staff, who have the guests welfare at heart. So why 98%? Well the door in our bathroom had warped so it didn't close and there was noise from the upstairs room. Brought both these matters to the owner (Neil?) and he thanked us for bringing it to his attention and said he had them his 'to do' list. Restaurant wasn't open when we were there (18 and 19th of July 2012) but you can't expect that in the middle of winter. Anyway it is so close to the street of restaurants that it was easy to walk, yes walk in South Africa, to a good selection.
Tips-don't park at the last bay on the right, there's a flock of sparrows in the trees that are no respecters of cars! Night porter cleaned the car while we slept.
Also the internet is there but slow, so don't expect to download that film.

Room Tip: Until the work is completed, take an upstairs room.

I recently had the priviledge to stay at Turnberry Lodge during the KKNK Festival. From the moment we walked in we could not ask for more. The owner, Neil, is always friendly and just the perfect host .. he was born to be a guest house owner!
Our room was stunning, I still want to know the make of the linen and pillows as I slept like a baby, the water features throughout, the cosy pub, the breakfast with those fantastic "vetkoeke" the lovely swimming pool area, I simply could not fault it and if I ever go to Oudtshoorn again there will only be one place where I would want to stay!

We stayed at this hotel in February and thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality offered by the establishment. It's location for the town is excellent and the on-site pub a bonus. Large modern clean rooms thoughtfully decorated all add to this fine hotel.

Its centrally located in Oudtshoorn in a quiet surrounding, convenient for exploring nearby ostrich farms, cango caves and wildlife parks- the tiger and cheetah cubs,crocodiles, elephants etc.

The staff; Miriam, Sulette and Jonathan are friendly.

Dinner was a typical Briaa, South African BBQ.

However, we found the choice of breakfast very limited and the dining room deserves better lighting.

The accomodation was very comfortable and well maintained.
