The room is clean, cosy and has a homely feel to it. The staff switched on the heater before we entered the room and that was so considerate. The power adapter we brought did not fit into theirs and they conveniently provided us with two, absolutely grateful! We stayed for a night, the dining area was not big but cosy. The kitchen staff, Andre and colleague, were kind enough to make me a vegetarian meal with a last minute request and that didn't taste bad at all! I love the carrots with pineapple and mint side dish. Dinner was great!

Well appointed, great bed, good warm shower. Friendly service, clean, WiFi available. Great bar (just a pity it allows smoking inside). Good breakfast. Switch the heater on (aircon) on cold days before guests arrive. Thanks for the great bottle of sparkling wine arranged late at night for us by Neil....

This is a really amazing beauty! Great rooms, great public areas, warm and friendly Pub. What else could you expect with Niel Els magic touch.

I highly recommend Turnberry Hotel if you travelling into Oudtshoorn.
We stayed for two nights and were really well looked after by Niel and his team.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great. Niel upgraded us to the "Presidential Suite"

I am late in writing this review, but wanted to register our extreme thanks to Neil and his staff for the amazing hospitality and accommodation we enjoyed during our three days at the Turnberry in December. Staff (hello to Adrian, and all the ladies in the kitchen!) were completely attentive to our every need and the rooms were well-appointed, comfortable, ultra clean and modern. Breakfasts were excellent as was the braai dinner one night. We were very grateful for the assistance in planning our activities in the Oudtshoorn area. It really could not have been a more enjoyable experience. We hope we can return one day for another break from a Canadian winter!
