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

Also if your child gets nipped by the puppy ,it has had its rabbies jab,as apparently it is a requirement that all pets have an annual jab. Very near the Congo caves

We are going Easter weekend again to this amazing lodge. We know that we will get an even walmer welcome this time around as these people just grow fonder in your heart. We need a break and as for rest, peace and food you cannot ask for better.

This extremely well-priced resort in an area of amazing natural beauty exceeded our expectations. The spotlessly clean units are equipped with everything one needs for a comfortable stay, serviced daily and have powerful yet silent air-conditioners that meant we were always cool when inside. The resort grounds and gardens are beautifully maintained and there are two large sparkling swimming pools.... More

This was our third visit to Oudshoorn area staying at self catering accomodation, and by far the best so far! The family units are so well equipped and we loved the separate room for our kids. The hotel is set in the base of a valley and the scenery is beautiful. Our kids (8 and 11) couldnt get enough of... More

Only ate dinner here but it wasn't worth the trek from Oudshoorn for the quality of fare on offer. Food was OK but no more. Service mediocre. But it is not expensive so I guess it has to be OK if you are staying at the property.

We had a warm welcome from Mariaan Spies(owner). The rooms were clean,comfortable,but a bit small and unfortunately no view from the room. The stars at night from the stoep are absolutely stunning especially for us city folk. Breakfast was an excellent, quality spread. To note that if you have dinner in town it is a bit of a dark road... More

The venue is picturesque but the establishment did not live up to my expectation. The staff at reception were distracted and not too helpful. The room is decent,downside- I had a door opening into the service area and there was a lot of dust. The pool requires some attention.Not worth the money spent.

My wife and I spent 3 nights in the Luxury room and what a pleasure it was! The room was clean, everything was taken care of and the hospitality is fantastic! We enjoyed the swimming pool a lot and couldn't get too much of nature! The restaurant is superb!!! We had Eland, Ostrich, Kudu & even Wild Boar kebabs! Each... More
