What a fabulous bnb. Excellent facilities, price and breakfast.
Highly recommended. Decor stunning and attention to detail
made it our short stay a winner.
Wish all accommodation could be as good as this.

This was by far the best B&B used by us during our 3 week stay in S. Africa & Zambia. We stayed at Oudtshoorn enroute our trip across the Garden Route from Cape Town to Knysna.

The room was perfect with good comfy queen bed and very nice bathroom (the owner Marie has put in a lot of thought in providing almost every small thing that you may need, I wish all the other places we stayed provided for these, that would have helped us travel really lite and save on some precious rand on extra baggage charges).

The icing on the cake was having our breakfast served in our own patio just next to the room (how innovative). The breakfast spread was great. The B&B is located in a residential area, at a 5 - 10 min drive from the street where most restaurants. We had a rental car, so it was not an issue for us. I guess without your own car its at least a 25-30 min walk to most restaurants.

The B&B provides for free Wifi and secured car parking. Its a pity we were booked only for a night which is shame as you can hardly enjoy the facilities at this wonderful B&B. Hope to come back again.

We very much liked the warm welcome with bubbles for celebrating our honeymoon, the beautiful room and the delicious breakfast which was served at our own kitchen/living area near the room. We would really recommend the B&B and would have loved to stay longer.

Earthbound B&B provided a great base for visiting Oudtshoorn. It is a short walk from the centre but easy to find and secure parking. Room was not huge but space used well with a private outside area for breakfast (complete with heater and blankets) and a pool area for the summer. Lots of thoughtful touches elevated this above a standard b&b and would happily return again.

Thank you for taking the time to do a review on Tripadvisor. I am very happy to hear that you would like to return to us one day again. Maybe book one of the other rooms for more space.
The winter is upon us.

Stayed over with my wife for one night on our way to Mossel Bay. We were so pleasantly surprised that we actually wished we could stay a couple of days! A great place, well kept, neat and tidy, excellent and helpful staff, and a peaceful environment. We couldn't ask for more.

We absolutely loved our 2 day stay, I'd rank this establishment at 4 star. Clean, nice decor, all you need is at the room. It's a short drive to city. I didn't like the breakfast that much (the choice and quality of products) hence giving only 4*, however, good value for money, I'd stay again!
