The moment we met Zoe and Huw, the hosts of the B&B, my boyfriend, Peter & I knew we had made the right accommodation choice at Oudtshoorn.
Hosts – Zoe and Huw make such a great team. They are big-hearted and earnest, and know the area at the back of their hands. We were eased into the B&B very efficiently, and got all the information we required and more (e.g. nearby attractions, recommended restaurants and even menus) without having to enquire. It’s no wonder why all their guests, us included, speak so fondly of them.
B&B/room – With not one but two passionate people running the place, you can only expect the best. The guesthouse is situated along the main street where there are plenty of cafés and restaurants to be found. Key attractions such as the safari ostrich farm and cango caves are just a short drive away. We stayed in room 8 which was spacious, clean and comfortable. We are thankful that the couple invested in additional units of heater to make the room warm in winter. The toilet is smaller than most, but good enough for us. Free wifi access was also available in the house.
Food – I can imagine how proud Zoe is of Huw, a husband who can cook! We had a hearty Full English breakfast to start off the day, and the lovely couple even packed homemade muffins for us, for the roads.
Parking – Private parking is available so safety is ensured.
This is a place with hosts that inspire people! We are happy to have met Zoe and Huw.
