I'm a seasoned international and local traveller. I have no issue with paying for anything as long as the business is fair to both parties. Yesterdays very elementary breakfast was a RIP OFF. Unfortunately, the Austrian owners don't seem to care (??) that South Africans are accustomed to a pricing structure commensurate with South African norms. Could I have walked... More

Lovely setting but breakfast here was substandard and meagre for the price we paid. Being owned by Europeans, I guess they are out of touch with South Africans' pricing reality. We are not afraid to pay for decent quality.

Awesome 2 night stay on most of my tours through the area. Fantastic hosts, Evelyn is just awesome! Off street and safe lock up parking, situated virtually in the center of Oudtshoorn and on the main road through town, best location you could want. The rooms are exceptionally clean and very spacious, the beds are really comfortable and you will... More

This was a lovely stop-off point on our family road trip. Our rooms were part of a beautiful, old Oudtshoorn building that had been renovated tastefully. The service was friendly and the owner worked hard to ensure that our stay was enjoyable. The breakfast was generous and included delicious coffee. Although it is situated on a major road, it was...

An older property in the centre of town, it is opposite the museum and close to restaurants. The large room and balcony are secure as is the small pool and parking area. The room was comfortable but a little dated. The biggest draw-back was the street noise at night.

We randomly chose this place due to its location and reviews. Its a nice secure b and b. The rooms are nice and basic, and have a big bathroom. We also had a balcony which overlooks the main street. I guess it can be noisy if you are a light sleeper, but it was not an issue for us. There... More
