Sonja and Daniel our hosts were superb making us very welcome and sharing lots of information about local restaurants and sightseeing. Large comfortable room, swimming pool and lovely breakfast. Definitely would recommend. Thank you S and D and good luck with your venture.
Sonja and Daniel made us feel very welcome. They have been running the guest house for over a year, having moved from Belgium - so have many languages to their repertoire! Nothing was too much trouble for them. The house is one of the oldest in Oudtshoorn and they have decorated it in keeping with the era of the house, so it's got quite a few antiques. The double bedrooms have massive comfy beds. We had a lovely breakfast on the terrace at the back of the house.
Lovely, well appointed large room which had air conditioning which was essential given the high temperatures. There was shared seating area at the back looking onto the garden where you could sit in the evenings. Breakfast was very good. The hosts were friendly and helpful.
My wife and I stayed at this Guest House for six nights, the car parking is at the far rear of the property, entranced via a gravel driveway, through the dining/kitchen area to the rooms.Our room number 3 was small with a seperate room housing the wash basin, loo and small shower. Although the owner assured us that he meant the Guest House to look and feel "homely and comfortable" it looked neglected, the bathroom door was shoddy, woodwork showing through paintwork in patches. The old fashioned tap heads for the shower were loose and more water dribbled down from the shower-head than spayed out. Rather strange pallet style storage at the foot of the double bed, which wasn't used. Several non-working clocks were on shelving with other outdated clutter. Breakfasts were a laugh, if I were in a light-hearted mood, there were no fruit juices on offer, nor milk or water. One had to request it. Coffee was poured out of a pot, guess what, yes, instant coffee. Scrambled egg was hard, bacon either recooked or blackened from over cooking; virtually inedible. Grilled tomatoes, whilst requested, didn't exist, only a slice or two of freshly cut ones. There was little conversation from the husband, except complaints about the situation in South Africa, his wife strove to make good his shortcomings. In short, we will never return to this accommodation again, yet I sincerely hope the Belgian couple brighten themselves up and become more conscious of the needs of their guests.…
We only stayed for one night en route to the coast but our stay was very comfortable - nice room, good breakfast with homemade cakes and bread. Located very centrally. Hosts gave some great tips and were very welcoming. Perfect for one night.
