This is a lovely place when you are visiting Oudtshoorn. The view, the rooms and the atmosphere are amazing. But the owners make the difference, they are so hospitable, helpful and proud of their guesthouse!

Stayed here 2 years ago and found the hosts to be very welcoming and helpful that when I travelled to oudsthoorn again I had to re- book here. Both Phil and Linda remembered details about my last visit which was a very nice.

Once again they were great hosts, their knowledge of local attractions and restaurants of the area is incredibly good. Phil is extremely helpful and will help out with any queries and reservations you may require.
The Rooms had a choice of 2 large single beds or double beds. All with air conditioning, a fridge with a well stocked honesty bar and large modern bathrooms.

We stayed in room 4 which is by the lodge house, has a large double bed with big walk in shower and a very nice bath! The Lodge house has an evening bar run by Phil and Linda should you wish to use it. Breakfast was very good with a large selection of foods and some locally sourced items with a choice of hot or cold food.

Cannot recommend this guest house and hosts any more, other than each time I revisit I will be booking with them.

Thank you for another great stay

Michael and Michelle

Room Tip: Cant really give any tips for a good room as all rooms are equally good. There are no bad rooms here...

This was really the best B&B in which we have been sleeping during our long 2500 kms trip across South Africa! The owners are fantastic persons, the cleanliness of the rooms is perfect, the breakfast has a superb choice of many different foods. In general the cure given to the whole guest house is evident in every aspect. Unfortunately we could stay only one day and one night, but we all were very sad having to leave so early! Without talking about the little pool with view on the suspended bridge! Compliments to the owners for such a lovely little piece of heaven!

Room Tip: All the rooms are perfect!

We booked two rooms at this guesthouse and had a terrific time! The rooms were perfect. The bathrooms were upgraded. There was a fridge/mini bar in each room. There was a wonderful veranda with comfortable Chairs to sit in and enjoy the property. The hosts were welcoming and very helpful in Restaraunt suggestions.

Room Tip: Rooms 4, 5, 6, and7 are in a line overlooking the pool and each can be two twins or 1 king.

Wonderful room, clean, comfortable, pretty and very friendly and helpful hosts. Breakfast was superb and the location perfect for visting places in the area and walking to town for a yummy dinner. Would definitely suggest you try staying here you don't need a 5 star hotel when you can get this level of service and room in a B&B well done !
