“Personal service par excellence!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2008

This is a quaint exclusive little hideaway and Garth & Shirley know the recipe for ensuring guests are well-fed, continuously watered and never bored. While the property is situated in the middle of town and makes for easy exploring of the town, the seclusion of the cottages made us feel as though we were in our own private world. With high temperatures a swimming pool is a must in Oudtshoorn and having one right outside our cottage door was heavenly. The food is good home-cooking and the cakes and pancakes deliciously decadent and all at really good prices. This was very special.

We were recommended Tonquani Oudtshoorn by another hotelier but, because there were no reviews on this site, did not know what to expect. What a pleasant suprise we got... the cottages (of which there are only two) are set in beautiful gardens and have been equipped to a very high standard (flat screen tv/mini bar/air con/pool etc) so comfort is guaranteed. The property is also centrally located so going out to eat etc. is no problem.

However, the best thing about Tonquani Ousthoorn are the owners, Garth and Shirley. We were made to feel very welcome by all our hosts in South Africa but the reception we received here was second to none and very personal. Nothing was too much trouble and Garth made sure we had a cold beer in our hand the moment we sat down... he also set up a croquet game in the garden and taught us how to play which proved to be a lot of fun.

If you are staying in Oudtshoorn then I would highly recommend Tonquani. Our only disappointment was that we did not book in to their sister property in Knysna (where we went after Oudtshoorn) which also looks amazing.
