Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 5, 2012

Stayed at this guesthouse with my partner in early November. the owners, Huw and Zoe could not have been any more welcoming and helpful . We stayed in a verandah room which was spacious and very comfortable. the guesthouse is located very centrally and great to walk to shops and restaurants. On the subject of restaurants, I urge you to eat at Kalinka's ( almost opposite the guesthouse) - the standard of food is exeptional and the best meal we had in south Africa in our three week stay.
this guesthouse was very reasonably priced and was fantastic value for money.

Zoe and Huw strive to ensure that your visit to their guest house will be both comfortable and memorable, and they are highly successful at what they do. From arrival to departure we were treated like friends and nothing was too much trouble.

Our room was bright and spotless, such is the property as a whole. Cooked breakfasts are made to order, with muffins, juice and coffee also available. The main house provides a lounge to relax in, and we spent a very enjoyable evening over drinks with our hosts.

Situated on a main street, the central location provides just a short walk to several restaurants nearby. Secure parking is provided at the rear, and a small pool. Upon arrival, we were briefed on things to see and do in the area, along with recommendations and suggestions to enhance our two night stay.

With such value, and the warm hospitality we received, there is a very good reason why Zoe and Huw have been successful in making their guest house the number one pick in Oudtshoorn. Check it out, you won't be disappointed!

I visited this little guesthouse on an organised tour with 10 others. The rooms were supurb, very clean and modern with everything you might need. The owners Hew and Zoe were very welcoming bringing us beers by the pool and cooking us great breakfasts. I would stay here again and can't recommend this guesthouse more highly!

Perfect! We arrived and were asked if we would like to join Hew for coffee/beer on the varanda. The info he gave us was first class, enough but not overload, suggested places to visit and returants. We took him up on his suggestions, they were just what we wanted to see. Resturant was great, good food good prices. Breakfast great.

Zoe and Huw are great, friendly hosts. We enjoyed staying at their B&B. They only had availability in the barn rooms so we had to book that. I wish we would've booked earlier because the barn room was a bit hard to get to because of the steep stairs--not ideal if you have difficulty with stairs. They do have what looked like nicer rooms in the main building, but they were all fully booked. But the room was nice enough, it was a bit on the small side but the bed was comfortable and it was clean so we were happy.

The breakfast was very good and our hosts were nice enough to offer free welcome drinks when we arrived.

The location is very good--right in the middle of all the action and an easy drive to all the major tourist attractions

We'd definitely recommend this place, but try to book the rooms in the main building if you have trouble with stairs

I arrived with 11 other travellers to a wonderful welcome from Huw and Zoe. Within minutes we were poolside with Huw bringing us drinks. It is a little oasis and have no hesitation in recommending. The rooms are beautifully decorated, very clean and have everything you need. There is a barbecue, day room and the breakfasts were superb. We sat out on the veranda watching the world go by. Nothing was too much trouble for this lovely couple. Well worth a visit if you are this way.
