Klipheuwel Country House is a typical late Victorian homestead that dates back to the feather-boom period of the early 1900's. It is a boutique guest house situated on a working ostrich farm, just 7 minutes’ drive from Oudtshoorn, where the pace and charm is reminiscent of a bygone era while every modern convenience is provided for. Our rooms offer unrivalled views over the valley and the Swartberg Mountains and open onto the veranda overlooking the pool area. We promise an unforgettable Klein Karoo experience, spectacular sunsets, starlit skies, tranquil surroundings and a relaxing atmosphere that will be the highlight of your stay. All the rooms at Klipheuwel are equipped with air-conditioning, mini bar, tea and coffee facilities, homemade rusks, flat screen TV and DSTV, en-suite bathroom, free Wifi and other luxuries.

From being welcomed with a cold glass of wine and finding our beautiful room overlooking the pool and mountains behind we felt very comfortable here. An-Mari and her team run a splendid hotel and their breakfast was the best breakfast in our whole two week trip around SA. An-Mari offered us a private tour of their ostrich farm (for R150.00 pp) which we would highly recommend. We learnt so much and saw the eggs in the hatchery through to holding 1 week old chicks to standing next to 8 foot adults, amazing.

Located on a working farm just outside Oudtshoorn, conveniently close to a road that takess you into Mossel Bay. 3 large rooms overlooking a pool with Oudtshoorn and Swartberg mountains in the distance. Large room with large attached bathroom. Comfortable bed and v clean linen. Morning breakfast served on a small table near the pool outside the room is a work of artistic presentation and a gastronomic delight served by ever friendly staff. Truely a stay to refresh, relax and recharge. Luv it!

Klipheuwel was a great choice to spend a few days seeing the sights, relaxing and having a much-needed break from the kids. The house is stunning, as is the pool and outdoor seating area with clear views across the Klein Karoo towards Oudtshoorn town. We would definitely recommend anyone to make a stop here, wish we could have stayed longer. Thanks also to Elmarie, Laubscher and their staff for making us so welcome and for the fantastic service throughout our stay. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

We've just returned from a fantastic trip to South Africa. Of all the places we had hotel or B&B accommodation this was the best. And that's saying something! The accommodation is spotlessly clean, spacious and beautifully decorated. An-Mari knew just how to make us feel welcome and important to her whilst giving our own space and privacy. The breakfasts are out of this world, every one is different but all home cooked (even the croissants) and excellent. Take the tour round the Ostrich Farm. It is so interesting - and first and foremost they are farmers who really care about their animals and their land. Our only regret about this stay is that we weren't there long enough. We will return!

Having stayed for three nights, we could easily have stayed longer at this superb accomodation as we were sorry to leave. Nothing was too much trouble for our host An Mari who was very welcoming and hospitable. All of the positive reviews accurately reflect the high quality of the rooms and facilities. The breakfast served by the pool was a particular highlight as was the tour of the farm. We will return! Thank you An Mari!
