Room was a dutch style cottage in beatifully maintained grounds with views of the vineyard adjacent to the property. There are ostriches in a paddock and a free walking peacock. Breakfast was up to standard - but avoid the porridge if you can't take masses of salt. The ostrich meal was very good - melt in the mouth meat -...

This guesthouse sits in beautiful grounds. The buildings are very nice too, though we had a bit too much furniture in the room. Staff is friendly. Food is not bad, though we had much fresher food (and especially breakfast) at some of the other farms that we stayed at, hence 3 instead of 4 stars. Nice restaurants in town.

Highly recommended place to stay - the grounds are stunning, the rooms are very comfortable, and the food excellent, not only the breakfasts but also the ostrich steaks on the evening we arrived. Very well situated for the ostrich farm, immediately opposite on the main road, Cango caves, Swartberg pass and other local attractions. Annelie was an excellent hostess and...

I recently spent a night ( sadly only one day ! ) at Oue Werf Guesthouse .The check in was warm and efficient and we were welcomed as old friends ! The rooms are well situated overlooking a small dam and the country atmosphere was evident everywhere. The family run establishment is a must when visiting Oudtshoorn and is close...

Always a good experience to stay at Oue Werf. The Spies family are very friendly and welcoming; and we like being able to have dinner which is always of a high standard. The cottage/bedrooms are set in pleasant green gardens which we find very restful after a day's car travel. Definitely will remain on our 'stopover' favourites - we travel...

The grounds are beautiful, but the rooms vary. They all have nice touches such as fresh lavender and good beds, as well as outside seating but also some parts are in need of updating, such as the bathroom in our room. Whilst very hit, it was a bit dates for example. There is a kids play area which my little...

What a beautiful place to stay . Not far outside of Oudtshoorn (13km) in the Schoemanshoek valley. Such a stunning setting, the iceberg roses were in full bloom , the orchards covered in new green leaves. My boys spent the whole afternoon fishing in the little dam for bass. The rooms are so comfortable and the attention to detail makes...

We stayed in room 4 and 5. Very, very nice rooms and good view (with a great bath in number 5). We loved it. Fresh flowers in the bathroom and scent small flowers everywhere. We booked with a dinner on both evenings. Perfect! The atmosphere was great. A well set table and above all...a great and big ostrich steak. It...

Wonderful reception, had a great time. Will visit there again. The atmosphere was lovely and loved the breakfast and freshly baked bread! this was a great place for a break away, peaceful. I actually miss the 2 ostriches and the nature.
