“Home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2013

Having booked on very short notice through booking.com we were the only people staying that night and hence caught Lourens our host a little off guard. That said he was the perfect host showing us to our room and making us feel very welcome from the start. Our room was spotless, with a very comfortable bed and a great view. Breakfast was delicious and a very generous portion. Add the great chat we had with Lourens after breakfast I would say we had a perfect stay and would gladly are likely to return with some friends in tow next year.

The hospitality and breakfast were amazing. Morkel invited us to have a drink and was a great host. We had a great conversation with him as well as two other repeat guests that had become good friends of his. He gave great restaurant recommendations and his four little dogs were fun to have around. Breakfast was excellent and the grounds are beautifully maintained.

The only downside was it can get a little hot in the rooms, but I wouldn't stay anywhere else. This is what traveling is about: great hosts, new friends, and good conversations.

We had a wonderful time at Terra Bianca Guest House. Francis and Morkel are absolute wonderful hosts! The breakfast is absolutely wonderful and the rooms very luxurious with a lot of space. The rooms with their own patios are tastefully decorated with all comfort and privacy and with stunning views to the mountain. Our hosts joined us for wine on the terrace and showed us to a great local restaurant which we would never have found without them.

Stayed here for two nights, lovely setting and the rooms are nicely decorated. There was a fan in the room but my stay would have been a little bit more comfortable if there was air con in the room, or at least a fridge to keep cold water, as it was 44 degrees when we were there.
Breakfast was lovely, the best scrambled eggs I have ever tasted, we chose the hot breakfast both mornings, and on our day of leaving, breakfast was ready for 7 so we could get back on the road early.
Morkel invites you for a drink on the veranda in the evening, which was very plesant.
Morkel advises on the best places to eat, please listen to his recommendation of Kalinkas, the food was absolutely devine.
If you dont like dogs dont go here, the dogs are very friendly and can be running about the grounds freely, I'm a dog lover so this suited me perfect.
On leaving I went to settle the bill, and thought I had already paid 50% of the money when I booked. Because I booked directly through the website this was not the case. If you have booked direct just make a note of this, because it is easier to settle the bill with cash. I had to pay half on card which is quite a long process for Morkel.
A lovely stay in Oudtshoorn - thank you.

Terra Bianca is our favourite place to stay in Oudtshoorn. The guest house is centrally located and has great views on the Swartberg mountains. It is very comfortable guest house with a more than friendly atmosphere, thanks to hosts Morkel and Frances, who certainly know how to spell hospitality. After having stayed here before, this year there was no doubt where we would spend our nights in Oudtshoorn: at Terra Bianca of course!

Wow – what an amazing place, the accommodation was very spacious, modern decor and clean. The views were amazing! It was very peaceful and comfortable. A delicious fully cooked breakfast was served on the main house patio in the morning. The hospitality and service was warm, helpful and friendly. The arrival drinks before our fabulous dinner that Morkel booked for us were more than appreciated we had a great time with a more than hospitable host and 2 Austrian guests. We will definitely be back! Thanks to Morkel who was more than hospitable.
