We stayed at De Oude Meul for one night and was very impressed. It it very reasonable and good quality! The restaurant serves excellent food. The surroundings are beautiful and there is a relaxed atmosphere. It is also close to many tourist attractions. I would definately recommend them!

If you are looking for reasonably priced accomodation with stunning surroundings, this is the place to go. The "self-contained" units are spaceous and with great views of the mountains. The swimming pool was just perfect for the very hot weather. Well placed just outside the town with easy access to the Cango Caves and Buffels Drift Game Reserve (Elephant experiences).... More

Excellent starter (ostrich capaccio), great to look at and even better to eat. Also meals were very good. Venison hunted on the property - we had an interesting conversation with the owner. Friendly staff. Big and well equipped playground in the garden, a paradise for children.

I have never been so pleasantly suprised before! Firstly they advertised a twin room, what we got was a private cottage with en suite bathrooms. A room with a view is an understatement as the cottage had a balcony overlooking a deer filled field and a unspoilt view of a mountain. The restaurant was great serving well made and presented...

This is our 4th year we spend at De Oude Meul Country guest Lodge. This year it was from 16th December to 5th January 2015. We can only give the best review the hospitality is outstanding with the most amazing continental breakfast and with The Ou Meul Restaurant on the premises this surely makes it a definitive must to visit.

This is a place that caters to tour groups and families visiting the Cango Caves. Our suite (bedroom, kitchen/sitting room, deck & ensuite bath) was nicely conceived but fell down on details. The wi-fi signal varied from weak to nonexistent. There was no sink and very few plates or utensils in the kitchen. The desk was six inches too high... More

I HIGHLY recommend a stay at De Oude Meul to anyone wanting to stay over in Oudtshoorn. It's very well-priced, has neatly cleaned rooms. Such a nice touch to have little lavender flowers in bathrooms and bedrooms. We stayed over for a full weekend as part of a wedding party and experienced the other services on offer. Really an AMAZING... More
