“Lovely place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

A small but beautiful guesthause with a lovely garden and pool at the backside. Spent two wonderful days there. The breakfast is delicious. The rooms are big and I loved the decoration and the somehow "old-fashioned" look. Very friendly and helpful host!
This B&B is absolutely recommendable.

Great place to stay in Klein Karoo, Oudtshoorn. In main street, walking distance from art galleries and great restaurants. Safe under cover parking. Excellent hospitality, and a unforgettable farm style breakfast. Beautifully decorated rooms, cosy beds, clean - could not ask for anything better!!! Bikes and hikes close by.

We booked a room at Oakdene for one night in december 2011. Our room was lovely and very beautifully decorated and the beds really comfortable. we were able to wander into town for supper which was a bonus. Our breakfast next morning was fantastic and there was so much food ,we were unable to do it justice. Liza was a great host and gave us lots of helpful advice. I would highly recommend Oakdene to anyone visiting Oudtshoorn.
