Phil & Linda are great hosts. They gave us valuable tipps for several tours around Oudtshoorn. The accommodation itself is well situated. Good restaurants in walking distance. We enjoyed our stay in this B&B a lot!

We stayed in the garden flatlet, same as before, and there was nothing to fault. Spacious rooms, very comfortable beds and this time the addition of satellite television....

Also making a sensible choice on our behalf of eating inside (it was cold...

Lovely room and so much information and so many suggestions from Phil on trips and local restaurants. Excellent breakfast with information on the provenance of the majority of the fayre on offer. Gumtree offers a small pool with loungers and a bar service as well.
