“Fabulous stay in beautiful setting”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

We have driven through Oudsthoorn on previous holidays to South Africa but his year decided to stay there for two nights. The reviews of the Yotclub were so good that we booked there and were delighted with our choice. The first thing that hits you as you walk out of the main house to your room is how stunningly beautiful the setting is. You look down over a huge, immaculately cared-for garden that runs down to a river with bird watching hide. We then proceeded to our room which was huge and had every amenity you could need. The bed was very comfortable and we slept very well. There was even a refrigerator and kitchenette if you needed them. We had our own seating area overlooking the gardens and spent happy hours just looking out at the views and wildlife. This is one of the most pleasant and relaxing experiences you could wish for. As everyone comments, the breakfasts taken outside were fabulous and huge! We had no need for lunch. The many excellent restaurants are easy, safe walks away. Des and Liz were excellent hosts - friendly and helpful but never intrusive. There is far more to do in the area than we had anticipated and we will definitely return to the Yotclub - for longer next time!

Room Tip: We had room 5 which had its own seating area and was excellent

We have stayed here on three trips and have never regretted any stay here.The hosts Des & Liz are beautiful people with very warm and caring hearts.That alone makes for a very peaceful and relaxing holiday regardless of the length of the stay.The natural peacefulness of the house and garden is extremely calming.The rooms have their own air of tranquility-you will sleep like a baby!The view when you are having breakfast is stunning and so is the breakfast-you don't need to eat for the rest of the day.The rooms are very neat & clean.The beds and linen are awesome!The pool is clean,the gardens are perfectly manicured.The staff are well trained in being friendly ,discrete and efficient.Location is perfect for day trips to explore the area.
Excellent value for money in this world of B & B's.

Room Tip: Room 5 is the "best in the west".

My wife and I stayed at Yotclub for five nights from 16 November 2012, this was our third stay and was as enjoyable as the first two. The accomodation is very clean and comfortable. Gardens are extensive and well maintained with a small pool and lots of seating where one can sit with a drink and enjoy the magnificent views of the surrounding countryside. There is also a bird and otter hide on the bank of the river at the bottom of the garden. Breakfasts are superb - fresh fruit, freshly baked bread and a hot dish. The owners Des & Liz are very welcoming, friendly and helpful. There is a good choice of restaurants within a few minutes walk. This is a great B&B and is ideal either as a base to visit the surrounding area or an overnight stay. Thanks Des & Liz, we hope to return.

My wife and I stayed here for one night during our garden route trip in November 2012. After spending the day on the road, this was the perfect tranquil setting to spend our Diwali evening.
We stayed on room 5 which had its own private patio area and it was a joy to wake up to views of the river. Des and Liz were warm, friendly and informative hosts and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was amazing and by far the best we had on the entire trip.
P.S. Liz thank you for ironing my shirt!!!!!!

We greatly enjoyed our stay at the Yotclub B&B in Oudtshoorn. Although the town is nothing special, there are some interesting things to see in the area, and the Yotclub is a great base to use to check out the area. Hidden away, with a beautiful view. Very good breakfasts and friendly innkeeper.

Ruth and i stayed here for 2 nights. Welcome is excellent, breakfast is superb and the grounds lovely. Not the biggest of rooms, but you will spend most of your time outside anyway. The hosts are full of enthusiasm and a pleasure to meet.
Highly recommended.

Thank you so much for spending time with us. We have made the garden wonderful for the enjoyment of the guests and pleased to see you found it to be so nice. Unfortunately , the house is an old Karoo one and as such we cannot alter the size of the rooms. We have made it as homely and comfortable as was possible. At your next visit web will spoil you.! All the best for the festive season. Des and Liz
