We were really put off when we arrived to find a totally empty car park... Was it open??? We checked in and got our room key...hotel lobby like ghost town. Our room was old fashioned but ok. Bed was very comfy. Bathroom shower was pretty bad. Making our way back to our room that night there were several cockroaches climbing... More

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

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 The bathroom was outdated. The lift outdated.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
