Certificate of Excellence
Colonial elegance, modern convenience The Queen's Hotel is an oasis of colonial elegance and wired modern convenience in the heart of Oudtshoorn - the capital of the beautiful semi-arid Klein Karoo. Finished in 1880, this grand dame of South African hoteliery has recently been restored to her full original beauty and continues to offer sumptuous accommodation, service and dining that is reminiscent of a bygone era but driven by dynamic modern hotel management.

The noisy road is one of the disadvantages of being in the centre of town within walking distances of all the shops and restaurants. Although the bathrooms are not big, it is modern with a big shower.
