I was on a business trip and had to leave early - before breakfast was served. I was told that breakfast is only served from 8 until 10 and that they could not serve earlier. I left the next morning at about 7:15 and breakfast preparation were already on the way. I was not even offered a sandwich for the... More

Very nice and stylish accomodation. Recently renovated, but good mix with oldfashioned interiour. Very good and healthy breakfast. Relaxing outside area. Very friendly and helpful german couple which runs the guesthouse. Friendly staff (they washed our dustcovered car!). Absolutely recommendable!

The place is dark and shabby and in desperate need of renovation. The door locks were all broken and the door handles in our room were all loose. The garden was a mess and the pool was dirty. Too bad because the place had potential to be charming. The location is central but the price was definitely too high for... More

I just did not manage to have some breakfast due to the early conference i had to rush to, but i suppose it was delicious, like the place explains itself. Most of all i liked the communication...

This is our second stay at this guesthouse and once again was not disappointed at all! We were a party of 6 adults and spent 3 days at Oakdene. First of all, the owner went out of her way to accommodate the 6 of us to have adjoining rooms. The rooms were cosy and tastefully decorated, with all the necessary... More

The owner is a nice and helpful lady but the house is for sale, so you know they wont invest further in the already ancient house. The rooms are large but dark and close to the main road (quite some noise at night) Value for money is not good...

Oakdene was one of seven stops on a recent trip along the Garden route. As someone who takes considerable note of reviews from other tripadvisor reviewers, I was disappointed that following the booking made by our agent back in December, there was only one further posting made within the 3 month period before our trip. We thought this extremely strange... More
