“Oudshoren Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2010

Walked into this restored old world gem, and Zoe and Hue ,immediately made me feel like I had arrived at the home of one of my old university friends. Modern ,spotlessly clean rooms,with seriously comfortable beds.Lovely little veranda to sit and great the day ,or have a late afternoon beer..Zoe , an experienced world traveller, gave us a serious download of all there was to do,including maps and even menus for different restaurants.Breakfast was healthy ,hearty , and I really appreciated the special vegetarian dish put together by Hue.Hope to stay there again in the restful territory of R 62.

It started with an easy, hassle free booking made over the telephone on the morning of my planned stay. The guest house has a brilliant location - easy to find & conveniently situated next door to one of the nicest restaurants in town.

Huw & Zoe are the best hosts I've ever encountered in a South African B&B. Great breakfast too? If you're a vegetarian, you'll be wowed by how quickly Huw dreams up something delicious & delivers the goods! Zoe is super-efficient & will ensure that you feel right at home the minute you step in.

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was wonderful. I think this place would be better named “Goldilocks’” because everything was just right.

The room was elegantly styled and perfectly sized, it also contained all those handy little things that are all too often missing from B&B rooms e.g. a fridge, TV and AC. Oh, and our bed and sheeting were a high end delight.

The location is ultra handy. It is right on the cute main street, with a swag of (very good) restaurants, shops and whatever you want all within an easy stroll.

Oh, and the “management” is a husband and wife team, who are very passionate about making sure their guests enjoy their stay, you get the feeling that their nightmares are about guests having a poor experience at their place.

Perfect place to stay in this area. Close by wonderful restaurant, super clean and comfortable room, delicious breakfast but most of all very nice hosts that couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. If we lived there, we probably would become friends.
