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

We were a family of four staying for two nights. Check-in was smooth and efficient and the rooms basic but spacious and comfortable. The outdoor facilities (put-put, pool and tennis courts) were great for the family and the breakfast buffet scrumptious. The hotel was value for money and fantastic service from staff all round - the staff were super friendly,... More

We stayed one night in this hotel as part of a tour group. The chck in was very smooth, as they had already allotted rooms and kept the keys ready. Our luggage was transferred to the rooms in a short while. The rooms are quite basic but well maintained and the bath rooms were clean. Beds were comfortable with clean... More
