Probably the best bed I had during my trip through Garden Route in South Africa. The room is so confortable and the staff and owner was so gentle with us. The Oudtshoorn Village is a place to return to. Thanks

Very special place to stay. The owner and manager were very friendly and helpful. There is a lovely decking area to sit, relax and take in the view. Well stocked honesty bar. Room was well maintained and very comfortable. Treats were left for you in the room. Centrally located, within walking distance of some lovely restaurants.

Place centrally located. Clean comfortable well maintained room with plenty of amenities. Room was very spacious with old time furniture that was not very useful or functional. Manager was very helpful although she left us to do the check out with the cook which did not know how to do it properly. Breakfast very good and plentiful.
