“Oudtshoorn GEM!!!!”
Reviewed November 15, 2010

From the moment we arrived a friendly, beaming Anzue made our stay pure pleasure.
We stepped into our stunning room, which was everything we needed after our long journey. , The view is breathtaking and the breakfast was fit for a famished soul.
All the little extras did not go unnoticed and I recommend this beautiful and affordable accommodation to anyone without hesitation.

We stayed two nights and from the beginning to the end we enjoyed the stay at this quiet, lovely and very nice place. It is around 10 km from Oudtshoorn next to the Cango Ostrich Farm. At this little peradise, we were able to get away from all the stress before. Rooms are very clean, big and very nice furnished. The breakfast was very delicious and the owner was very nice. Her service is more than pleasant ! In the morning our car was washed and her cookies were so good, that we got some for our drive. We had our best time at Die Fonteine during our trip through South Africa.

This B&B is not in Oudtshoorn, but in a small place called Schoemanshoek which is about half way between Oudtshoorn and the Cango Caves (which we can highly recommend!).
We arrived quite late at night, so only a very annoying dog greeted us at first. But the owner was pretty nice, and the rooms were definitely worth the money. Pretty furniture, nice bathrooms, comfortable beds and everything very clean.
The breakfast was disappointing, but it was a very good place to stay at for visiting the Cango Caves early the next morning.

This guest house is owned and managed by Anzue who is warm and friendly and ensures her guests are well looked after. This guest house is new, only opened in January 2010 and is 12 kilometers outside of Oudtshoorn on the way to the Cango Caves. The rooms are neat and new with their own entrance which gives you a nice sense of privacy. I found it very reasonable priced and the breakfast was amazing and full of variety. The combination of how this guest house is run, what it offers and the location, will definately cause me to stay there again.

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.
