“Recommend? Definately YES!”
Reviewed December 8, 2008

The house has a beautiful garden. It feels like you are out in the country. The owners have "before" and "after" pics that are amazing - I have a huge amount of respect for what they have achieved in renovating the house and the garden. When I looked back at my holiday photos, I realized that I took an excessive amount of photos there compared to anywhere else.

Besides the garden, the hospitality and the breakfasts were first class. You are treated well and spoiled with home made breads and good service.

The rates are reasonable.

I don't have anything negative to say.

Stayed November 2008

We were recommended here, and rightly so. The house is perched on top of the river bank in Oudtshoorn, with magnificent ivews to the Swartberg mountains in the far distance, and with sweeping lawns down to the river. The house is reasonably old - built in the 1930s, and has been burnished to perfection. The smell of beeswax for the floors and the tables was lovely.

Our room was an annexe attached to the main house, reached by a separate entrance, and facing the river and the mountains, so beautiful views from your bedroom. Spotlessly clean, and very comfortable - you disappeared into the bed, and the duvets were thick and fluffy. It was cold whilst we were there, but there is an air conditioning unit in the room.

Des and Liz made us very welcome. Liz is the gardener, and the grounds are beautiful. Des had lots of local knowledge, and was very helpful with where to eat, visit, etc - two local restaurants nearby are excellent - 'Kalinka', which is Russian owned, and 'Jemima's, also very good.

Cooked breakfast next morning was excellent, with a good selection of fruit and cereal in addition to the full English. The service was very good, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
We were also well placed for the Cango caves, Vrede waterfall, and the Swartberg Pass, all not far away.

The Yotclub B&B is situated in the centre of Oudtshoorn, in a quiet lane within a few minutes walk of leading restaurants & shops.
This is a fabulous place to stay and on the road which leads to the Cango Caves, the Cango Wildlife Park and the Cango ostrich farm.
We were given a very warm and hearty greeting by the owner Des, who took the time to show us round his beauitful establishment.
Our twin room was tastefully and elegantly furnished and we were made to feel very welcome.
The garden is absolutely amazing and the photos do not do it justice.
The breakfast was amazing and Liz's home made bread was a special treat
This was a wonderful place to stay and I would higly recommend it.
