Well situated hotel in Oudtshoorn (between the town and Cango caves / Cango wildlife ranch) with nice grounds and a few Ostriches for the added close-up experience, the complimentary reception drink on arrival was un-expected touch.
Suggest booking the Rondavel, this traditional round building with thatched roof is a full authentic African experience. The Rondavel was quite large inside, 2 well sized beds and an en-suite with all the usual trimmings in the room. The room and ensuite were clean, tidy and well equipped.
WiFi was free (passcode available from reception), staff were friendly and accommodating. Nice pool area too, there are plenty of lawns for kids to run about on. Breakfast was of a standard quality.
Oudtshoorn is home to the SANDF Infantry School, if you listen closely at 8am each morning you can hear the SA national anthem being played by the army band for morning reveille.
