The rooms are very nice, and the views can be good, but this place is in the middle of nowhere. People may like to take their children to see the ostriches, but this means the rest of us are told off for talking in the open air after 9.30pm! There is nowhere to talk other than the open air -...

I've stayed in quite a few guesthouses and hotels in Oudtshoorn but this is by far, very far, the very best I have had the pleasure of staying in.

This guest house is set on an ostrich farm and it's nice to see the animals with lovely views of the mountains in the background. It offers evening meals with a two or four option but with little difference in price. We found this to be very expensive, literally the most expensive meal we have had to date and unfortunately...

Stayed here for two nights on our trip on the garden route. Never thought I would be staying on an ostrich farm! Rooms were good, beds comfortable and staff super friendly. It was just sooooo quiet and peaceful. We were able to sit outside our room and just listen to the birds. At night, as there is no light pollution...
