“Wonderful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2009

We didn’t know what to expect when we booked at the Yot Club at Oudtshoorn as I could find very little about it on Trip Advisor. It turned out to be a wonderful treat. Comfortable, clean, attractive rooms (we stayed in room 5 with its own private outdoor space), beautiful landscaped gardens leading down to the river, lots of shady areas to sit and a very attractive swimming pool. We spent ages just relaxing with a drink from the honesty bar and watching all the beautiful wild birds.
We breakfasted on the terrace overlooking the river and the lovely view beyond and what a breakfast, with freshly baked bread and all the trimmings.
The position was excellent as you can walk to the shops and in the evening we could forget the car and walk to restaurants which Bronwyn will book for you. We especially loved Kalinka, friendly attentive service and great food beautifully presented.
Bronwyn was standing in for her parents who were away and she was a mine of information, a highly intelligent and engaging host, never too busy to offer advice and suggestions and with lots of local knowledge. She even arranged our laundry for us and it was returned the same day neatly ironed and folded.
As an all rounder, the Yot Club was my favourite stop of our three week trip and I just hope that I will be lucky enough to visit it again.

  • Liked — Particularly liked the position, beautiful view over the river and walk to shops and restaurants
  • Disliked — Would have liked a full length mirror in the room but thats just me!

We stayed at the YotClub B&B for 1 night as part of our honeymoon. Our room had it's own private garden as well as a great view of the river at the bottom of the main garden. We spent a lovely couple of hours watching the weaver birds in the reeds - just lovely.
Breakfast was brilliant - as well as the usual breakfast food we even had a freshly baked loaf of bread on the table that we could slice up ourselves and eat with jam!
Don't be put off that it is behind a petrol station - it has the best views over the river and great sunsets - we loved it and would definitely stay again.

Lovely house with beautiful gardens. Great for birdwatching. The pool was very welcome after a long journey from The Winelands across the little Karoo. Bronwyn (the owner's daughter) was a mine of information and the breakfast she provided was one of the best we had in S Africa. Loved the fresh home-made bread.
It's very easy to find and within walking distance of some very good restaurants (we can recommend Kalinka's).

Having returned from travelling in South Africa for a month where the standard of accommodation has been excellent, I have to say this was my favourite and would loved to have stopped a couple more days. Thank you Liz for the beautifully spacious and comfortable room overlooking the gardens and river with an abundance of bird life. Your breakfasts were sumtuous and your advice excellent.

The Yotclub came as a recommendation from friends and what a great choice we made! A wonderfully friendly reception and a perfect setting made our short visit memorable. My only regret is that we could not stay longer! Our room was excellent, the gardens teemed with bird life and our breakfast could not have been better. Many thanks.

From the time you walk into the Yotclub B & B you are transported into that timeless and wonderful ambience created by the owners. A beautifully renovated old home looking over the magnificent garden and the river that is a bird-lover's paradise.
The Yotclub is within walking distance of many restaurants and shops in Oudtshoorn, so evenings are a pleasure.
The breakfast offered by the owners is the best I have experienced in all my travels staying at B & Bs.
You won't be sorry that you stayed here.
