The website of this establishment is an over-statement. See: http://www.oudtshoornhotel.com/ Previously known as The Pearls of Oudtshoorn, the hotel is centrally located and easy to get to. Unfortunately, the building is run down, the curtains are dirty, the stairway is untidy and the elevator does not work. Or at least it did not work for the entire weekend I was... More

3 star with 5 star Staff. They are so amazing, friendly and helpful. The rooms are lovely, the linen and towels excellent, so amzingly white. Every room has 2 comfortable double beds, coffee and tea making facilities. Aircon. What more do you need. The hotel grounds and pool is immaculate. Child friendly. The breakfast massive and the kitchen is wonderfully... More

Passed through Oudtshoorn recently and this hotel no longer calls itself The Pearl, the outside of the building looks run down and no longer as elegant when under the previous name. I'd be careful if thinking of staying over. I'd also be interested if anybody has recently stayed over under the new name.

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 The bathroom was outdated. The lift outdated.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

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.
