“friendly guest house owners”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

Although we had not requested the underfloor heating (it's R40 a day), Rina had very kindly put it on for us so the room was not too cold on our 6 pm arrival. We decided to keep it on and pay for the heating and are glad we did as it was icy cold at night. We had driven past plenty of snow-capped mountains on our departure from our guest house (De Langenhof) in Riebeek West.
The room was comfortable, the wi-fi free, and we had a bath and shower (shower over the bath).
The guest house is just up the road from one of the main roads through Oudtschoorn, so it was not far to drive to a restaurant for our dinner.
We did not have the breakfast (R60 pp), as had plenty of fruit with us, which we ate before continuing our journey via De Rust

Great from the check in until the check out. Friendly handled by the owner, really good price - but if you want to use AC you have to pay extra. Little pool outside, nice seating area and also servers breakfast for small charge. Highly recommend this accommodation.

I was in the town for work but felt relaxed and at home with great staff and owners. Although air~con was additional it was still competitively priced. Beautiful garden and was able to cool down in the pool.

Would like to go back :)

We stayed two nights and liked this B&B very much. Very friendly staff and with an almost perfect courtyard for eating your braii and relax in the pool. The rooms a bit small, but very clean and nice. The Farmer´s shop nearby is well worth a visit

This is the Best Little Guesthouse in Oudtshoorn. Fabulous from the reception and book in handled very well by Arlene to its Friendly, beautifully positioned rock featured pool, warm and friendly atmosphere with lovely outside sitting area. Comes highly recommended Cyndi Dean Schutte....

Room Tip: Tip: Ask for room 6 (colour Brown) features french door opening onto the pool area.

Very friendly staff and nice clean rooms with separate outdoor space. The rooms were a little small and the decor was, for me, a little out of date. However the place was clean and the staff were helpful and friendly, so a great little place to go as a stop over.

Very cute countryside-like house with lovely courtyard and pool. Very friendly owners and only 5mins drive to downtown. The only complaint is the bathroom, which is quite dated, has no shampoo, too low water pressure in the shower, very small mirror and no tap mixer. Breakfast is basic but good. I would certainly stay here again.
