“Home away from Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

We spent one night in the cottage adjacent to the Guest House and could not fault anything.

The bedrooms are comfortably furnished, the livingroom with kitchen is spacious and well equipped, the bathroom is huge with both bath and shower and the host and hostess were friendly and ready to provide information and advice on any subject. The premises are spotlessly maintained.

The breakfast was delicious with home brewed coffee and home made marmalades, eggs to order with mushrooms and more, fresh fruit etc.; as South African citizens, we are proud that the standard of accommodation provided in this country often supersedes that provided elsewhere in the world.

Room Tip: If you are a family or require separate bedrooms, the cottage is spacious and ideal.

We were welcomed warmly upon arrival and offered drinks and tips for restaurants. The cottage was charming! The facilities excellent, bed was comfortable, area is very quiet, and it was gated so we felt safe. The grounds were beautifully landscaped. The breakfast was delicious, plentiful and graciously served. Loved talking to our charming, interesting informative hosts! It was a wonderful visit in every way!

We had a lovely family cottage and our lovely and very helpful hosts offered excellent breakfast, a pool and a braai area. A very good place which we can only recommend if you stay over in Oudtshoorn.

We were made to feel really welcome. When we first arrived, we were invited to an informal get together over drinks where we met the other guests. The owners were very informative about the area and the best places to eat out and even arranged reservations for us. The surroundings of the guest house are lovely too.
