“Excellent B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2012

We recently stayed for two nights at Die Fonteine. It is well located just a few kilometres outside of Oudtshoorn, conveniently situated between the Cango Caves and the Cango Wildlife Park, two of the main attractions in the area. The room we had was beautifully presented and very clean, and had a lovely large bathroom. Breakfast was excellent, freshly cooked and served by Anzue in a lovely dining room, with an outside area for coffee. Anzue could not have been more helpful and was a great host. If you are visiting this area we can thoroughly recommend Die Fonteine.

We stayed for one night as a stopover to break up the journey from Franschhoek to Knysna. The accommodation was of a very high standard and excellent value. The rooms are stylishly fitted out and have a/c which is a boon in the hot summer weather. Facilities at the guest house are limited but there is free wifi and a nice terrace to sit out on and take in the views over the fields towards the Swartberg mountains. Breakfast was very good. There was a slight issue with a power outage due to a thunderstorm but that's hardly within their control!

I stayed overnight in the Strelitzia room with my friend as we had travelled that day from Paarl on our way to Knysna, via Cango Caves and Oudtshoorn. Die Fonteine is a lovely place with Anzue a very welcoming host who was very attentive to our needs. The place is set in it's own space with the little area known as Schoemanshoek and is absolutely perfect for being out of town in the peace and quiet, close but far enough from the main road towards Cango. The room itself was lovely, all the little things had been thought of and the decor was great. I hope to visit South Africa again and if I'm in the area this is where I'd definitely stay again. It's just a shame we were there for just 1 night!

We a group of six senior citizens from India touring South Africa, booked Hotel Die Fonteine for over nights stay for 10th Sept. 2011. This small cute home-like place to stay, offering only bed & breakfast. It is run by a single lady who is very courteous, friendly & prompt. Trip to Outshoorn is a must for seeing the ‘The Cango Caves’ which is a famous world–heritage site. The best part of this hotel is its location, although a bit away from the town but quite near the Cango Caves & just opposite the Ostrich farm. Driving from Cape Town via Hermanus where you see the whales from the shore, it takes about 5 hours to reach Outshoorn by evening. The lady provided a reasonable breakfast! Rooms were, spacious, clean & nicely decorated. We appreciate that this small joint provides Complimentary Tea/coffee facility, with hot water kettle in each room! Our most competent & knowledgeable Guide Roger Major of Mytours took us to a nearby restaurant for dinner. This place was fabulous & it was a memorable evening after a bit tiring day drive through the beautiful West Cape. I would recommend tourists to stay at Hotel Die Fonteine.
Stayed on 10th September 2011, with friends.

Very nice welcome and checkin with Anzue. We had the Clivia and Roses rooms both were very nice and comfortable. Lovely B&B in a very quiet and peaceful location in a valley close to Cango Caves. Breakfast was excellent with a good range of items including home made jam. Sherry and rusks in the room was a nice touch. Rooms had bath and walk in shower. Would definitely recommend this B&B.

Stayed here as part of our garden route tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our hostess Azuze was extremely welcoming and informative. We visited two local eateries - both excellent and also enjoyed a free wine tasting and cheese platter at the nearby winery. You are a fair bit outside the town but that was perfect for us and we enjoyed the tranquil setting.
Lovely room and good breakfasts.

This guest house is situated just outside Oudtshoorn on the way to Cango Caves. This guest house is owned and run by Anzue.
