Also down the road from Karusa wines, which is a good place for wine tasting and lunch. The room looked out on the lovely garden,...

We enjoyed a one night stay at this very nice bed & breakfast situated in the countryside north of Oudtshoorn. We were welcomed by our hostess, Anzue, who recommended various attractions in the area and served a tasty breakfast. We chose this B&B because of its proximity to the Cango Caves but we also enjoyed crossing the nearby Swartberg Pass...

Well supplied and comfortable rooms, with beautiful grounds and many little nooks to relax and enjoy the scenery and flowers. Close to many interesting sites, including the Bible Garden at the Dutch Reformed Church visible from the B&B. Friendly owner that knows the area well.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This guest house is situated just outside Oudtshoorn on the way to Cango Caves. This guest house is owned and run by Anzue. There are 6 double rooms each with their own entrance and ensuite bathrooms. Rooms are spacious and new with wonderful finishes. The setting of the guest house is beautiful and we loved eating a delicious breakfast while being surrounded by mountains and watching ostriches nearby. I would have no hesitation in recommending this establishment especially to guests touring The Garden Route. ... more   less
