“Wonderful stay!”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

Die Fonteine is a wonderful guest house with a lovely owner who made us feel very welcome.

Attention to detail is superb, for example home-made carrot carrot for guests, just added to what was a great place go stay.

The rooms are beautifully
decorated and breakfast was plentiful and very tasty.

The guest house is in a great spot to visit the Cango Caves and Ostrich Farm.

Thank-you for a such a lovely stay and we would definitely return.

A fantastic find just a short drive outside Oudtshoorn. Anseu was out when we arrived but we were given a warm welcome by her daughter. We had a King Room with extra large double bed which overlooked the garden and Schoemanshoek Valley. Very clean and comfortable with attention to every little detail down to the home made cake left for visitors in the dining room. Breakfast was so big we didn't need lunch. Within a few minutes drive are the Cango Caves and Ostrich farms and also some very good restaurant. The Buffelsdrift Lodge is a must for dinner but booking needs to be done in advance. Would highly recommend and will definitely be back should we return to South Africa.

Room Tip: Because of the location I suspect all rooms are quiet. We had the King Room with an extra large doub...

Anseu was a delight. As we arrived she came towards the car as we got out, and I was halfway through the process of giving her a great hug before I realised that we had never met or spoken before! Such was the warmth of personality that she conveyed. Lovely peaceful place to stay.

Wonderful guest house conveniently located on way to Cango Caves. Anseu is a delightful owner and host and very attentive. She recommended Buffelsdrift at game park closeby for dinner and we enjoyed super dinner on deck overlooking dam.

Room Tip: Had difficulty finding location on GPS. Suggest searching town as Schoemanshoek, not Oudtshoorn and...

Located in glorious countryside, this B&B is a perfect stopover if you’re travelling route 62 from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth. We stayed in Room 4 Bouganvillia. Nicely appointed, with a sumptuous feel, although mosquito screens would have been nice so that we could have slept with windows open. Breakfast eggs are poached seriously hard and the mushrooms are soaked in garlic, which is not to everyone’s taste first thing in the morning, but maybe that’s the Oudsthoorn way of doing things!.

This guest house is situated just outside Oudtshoorn on the way to Cango Caves. This guest house is owned and run by Anzue. There are 6 double rooms each with their own entrance and ensuite bathrooms. Rooms are spacious and new with wonderful finishes. The setting of the guest house is beautiful and we loved eating a delicious breakfast while being surrounded by mountains and watching ostriches nearby.
