“THE Guest House to stay at in Oudtshoorn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

The property is stunning and the management is friendly, personal and outstanding at making you feel right at home away from home.

The rooms are clean, fresh and open. Good functional A/C and heater. The beds are perfect.

All in all we can not fault them, the only problem is; if you are reading this and NOT booking in for a visit to Oudtshoorn.

Close proximity to Cango Caves and they have a good ear for the local restaurant vibe in town, their recommendations were spot on.

I will come back and bring my friends, family etc.

Room Tip: Ask for the warmer rooms if available.

We had two weeks of holiday in Cape Town and the Garden Route in May 2014 and stayed 6 different 4* guest houses. This is the best one we have experienced. It is a beautiful complex with a lot of features, lovely garden, big pool. The household quality is in its best. The cottage floor is electrically heated, giving very comfortable feeling. The deco is so 'taste' and elegant, which promoted us to take the photos of the cottage both room as a model for our bathroom renovation. We do think this is 5* house.

We spent one night in the cottage adjacent to the Guest House and could not fault anything.

The bedrooms are comfortably furnished, the livingroom with kitchen is spacious and well equipped, the bathroom is huge with both bath and shower and the host and hostess were friendly and ready to provide information and advice on any subject. The premises are spotlessly maintained.

The breakfast was delicious with home brewed coffee and home made marmalades, eggs to order with mushrooms and more, fresh fruit etc.; as South African citizens, we are proud that the standard of accommodation provided in this country often supersedes that provided elsewhere in the world.

Room Tip: If you are a family or require separate bedrooms, the cottage is spacious and ideal.

We were welcomed warmly upon arrival and offered drinks and tips for restaurants. The cottage was charming! The facilities excellent, bed was comfortable, area is very quiet, and it was gated so we felt safe. The grounds were beautifully landscaped. The breakfast was delicious, plentiful and graciously served. Loved talking to our charming, interesting informative hosts! It was a wonderful visit in every way!

We had a lovely family cottage and our lovely and very helpful hosts offered excellent breakfast, a pool and a braai area. A very good place which we can only recommend if you stay over in Oudtshoorn.
