We usually plan our trips well in advance, but we changed our itinerary at the last minute and end up in Oudtshoorn to find a place to sleep before visiting Cango Caves next morning.
Most of the nice guesthouse were fully booked because of weddings, or too expensive just to spend a night (1500 to 2000 Rands just to sleep the four of us).
So we end up at Protea Riempie paying less than 700R for a small and outdated room, but relatively clean. Kids had fun at the playing ground while we had a little glass of wine in the "back yard".
Since there's a restaurant on site, we decided to go the easy way and dine there. The staff was very kind and the food was OK. We were not expecting much, so we were happy to save a few bucks!
