We only stayed for 2 nights during a tour of the garden route but the beautiful gardens and tranquil setting soon had us feeling at home. The staff were helpful the room spacious and clean and the hotel is situated in a great part of town for restaurants (which the staff will happily recommend and book for you) and the local attractions. Breakfast is good quality and the mini bar well stocked and exceptionally cheap....loved every minute

We were only here for one night during a tour along the Garden Route. Very spacious and comfortable rooms arranged in a crescent around the garden. Just a pity we did not have time to enjoy the outside seating or the small swimming pool. Breakfast was excellent with a cold buffet and hot food cooked to order. They do not serve evening meals but there are many fine restaurants in Oudshoorn. We used Jemimas.

The lodge is very well located around the activities you can do in Oudtshoorn. The staff was very helpful in advise on where to go and how to get there.
In the hotel there a menus of all the restaurants in the arae, this helps you selecting. Ofcourse you should eat ostrich when you are here.
The breakfast in the morning has a huge selection on all kind of food. We were there in low season and even then they took the effort to have this much choice.

When in Oudtshoorn there is only one place to stay "HLANGANA LODGE". We have been regular visitors to Oudtshoorn over the past 15 years and cannot imagine staying anywhere else. There is the choice between their recently refurbished regular or superior accomodation.
Whilst the regular is very good we prefer the superior wing. It has little touches that set it apart. All the staff under the management of Bert and Chantal are extremely helpfull and go out of their way to make your stay memorable. The wonderful breakfast is the only meal served. All rooms have tea/coffee making facilities plus a well stocked mini bar. There are a number of good restaurants within walking distance. Our favourites are Kalinkas and Jemimas.
You can be assured of a very pleasant stay at this superb establishment. Tony T.

I am in Oudtshoorn twice a year and always stay at Hlangana Lodge. My stay varies between a week and two weeks. My most recent stay was in July 2012 and I wouldn’t stay anywhere else! The location is quiet and perfect for relaxation and, although they don't serve lunch or dinner, the Lodge is within walking distance of the main restaurants and coffee shops on Baron Van Reede Street (Jermima’s, Kalinka’s etc.). Hlangana Lodge is set amongst lush trees, the gardens are maintained impeccably and there is plenty of off street parking.
Nothing is too much trouble for Chantal and the staff. The large bathrooms and the bedrooms are always kept spotlessly clean.; there is an excellent buffet and cooked breakfast to start the day and you can wind down in the evenings with a glass of wine on your private patio. Highly recommended!!

Room Tip: All the rooms are on the ground level and are quite private but the 'superior' room section...

We stayed at the Hlangana Lodge and had a wonderfull stay. The gardens are a real lush and well kept. The rooms are spacious and are overlooking the gardens and swimming pool. The staff is very very helpfull and gave us very good tips about what to visit in the area. Although the lodge has no restaurant the girl at reception (Chantal, if I remember well) made us a booking at a restaurant within walking distance and we had a very nice dinner. We were very surprised the next morning to find our car washed and cleaned, after 2 weeks of travelling the car sure was dusty and needed a clean ! We really can recommend this lodge to anyone visting Oudtshoorn !
