“Wonderlike gasvrye ontvangs - pragtige omgewing en baie gemaklike akkomodasie- hoogs aan te beveel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2013

Ons het 'n wonderlike gasvrye ontvangs gehad van Annelie en haar man. Die omgewing is pragtig en rustig. Die uitsig vanaf ons kamers was 'n dam met wilgebome wat mens onmiddelik laat ontspan. Die akkomodasie was ruim baie netjies en uiters gemaklik. Ons beveel die gastehuis ten sterkste aan. Dit is heel gerieflik geleë, naby die Cango Grotte, Cango Wildlife en Cango Ostrich Farm en baie naby aan die dorp - hoogs aan te beveel

On arrival we felt like we had driven to paradise! Wonderful location, beautiful and secluded. Fantastic meal and service at night time. Gorgeous accommodation with great attention to detail (lavender left on your pillow!). Highly recommended.

Wow! What a beautiful place this is. Oue Werf is set in the countryside 12 km outside of Oudtshoorn with a dramatic mountain backdrop. The hosts are very friendly and the food was beautifully presented and tasty. We stayed in the garden house overlooking King George and Lily -the 2 resident ostriches. There's a lovely wine estate next door. Nice place to relax to break up a hectic touring schedule.

Room Tip: Garden house is nice and private as it is a little detached house with its own terrace.

Shower was very average! All other very good!!

The welcome from the owner each year is very warm and very special. The evening meal is also a highlight especially the Ostrich Steaks and Karusa Wine!

We can only pay a short visit each year as the stop is en-route to cycle "The Hell and Back" race. Each year we plan to arrive a day earlier to experience all of the wonders of Oudtshoorn but time has not granted us the priviledge yet.

Lorna and I had a Great stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal on Friday night; the ostrich steaks were excellent. Our room was great, the outlook over the dam is great. We wished we could spend another night after the heavy ride we went on. Next time!

It was unfortunate that prior to our visit a water tank had burst leaving a damaged ceiling awaiting repair. However, they apologised profusely and discounted our stay. Gardens were especially wonderful.

I recently visited Oue Werf Guesthouse with a small tour group. We were welcomed like long-lost family, which is very heartwarming after a long trip. I have been there before, and always enjoy the peace, quiet and beauty of the place. I cannot praise it too highly.
My chalet, set apart from the others, was beautiful, well appointed and spotless. A charming space, with chandelier, many lights, luxurious bathroom, and even a bath! A definite plus, as was the welcome carafe of sweet wine. I spent much time wandering in the the beautiful, well tended gardens, and especially enjoyed the swimming pool.
The restaurant is terrific, with its log fire, which was very welcome after our run through the rain and thunder on our second night. Food fantastic and varied. Our table was organised very artistically, and I just had to photograph it.
A most wonderful visit, with fantastic service was fantastic. I hope to go there again some time.

Room Tip: Difficult to say really, all rooms are superb and beautifully presented. I was in Chalet 9, which s...
