We stayed for 2 nights over December 2014. The room was beautifully refurbished and the beds comfortable. The bathroom was outdated. The lift outdated. Management seriously needs to consider replacing it; it's a bumpy ride. The staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a nice variety. We had a room on the second floor overlooking a roof (I assume it... More

I was on a holiday with family and stayed for 5 nights. The hotel is conveniently located in Oudtshoorn and the rooms are recently refurnished. So the rooms are really nice and very spacious. The quality of the bed is very good. The hotel has a nice swimming pool, and the staff is very helpful.

We made our reservation on line at the beginning of 2014 for December 2014. When we arrived we thought that we got our directions wrong. We stayed at this hotel previously when it was still a Holiday Inn. The name on the building was Oudtshoorn Inn. There was a pile of rubble in the parking area. There were tacky, twinkling... More

Booked for our stay in December 2013 via the hotels website, which had a special that included access to nearby tourist attractions. Whilst the price with free venue accesss was good value, the price that was quotes in ZAR ended up being deducted form my credit card in GBP! This mean tthere was an exchange rate difference and they I... More

This was our third stay over at the Pearl, but this time we were disappointed! The room was average for a one night stay over. Very much like a airport layover hotel. After settling the bill and getting our key, we were told that there was unfortunately no bar facility that night. That was okay as we were going out... More

Our room was comfortable, we had a nice view over the swimming pool. Breakfast was a big problem, there was almost nothing left at 7:30am ! No coffee, no milch,... The waiters weren't helpful but still friendly.

Returned to the Pearl of Oudtshoorn for a site inspection with my family. Rooms had been refurbished with new linen + flat screen TV's. The hotel lift definately requires maintenance to reduce the noise. Wireless internet available free in 30 min vouchers but suggest multiply vouchers as 3 out of 4 didn't work ! Breakfast was fine All in all... More

We were two adults and two teenagers sharing a room and had a very comfortable two night stay stay! After reading reviews on tripadvisor I was a little cynical, however the hotel exceeded our expectations and the warm, friendly service was great! We had a room with a narrow balcony overlooking the pool area, and although the architecture of the... More

The hotel is located on the main road but it looks like a 60 year old youth hostel from the outside. As an architect it took me a lot to even enter the building and on my very long way to my room I had to smile when I saw the staircase. Overall it is only nuances better than the... More
