“Ideal B&B”
Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

We stayed here in november 2012 for only one night ( unfortunately), but it was wonderfull, the room and service were great. Excellent spot when passing through Oudtshoorn, with an eye for every detail in a B&b!

A great stay. Everything from the beautiful decor, the surroundings, the friendly owner and the breakfast was great. We loved it and if our path ever goes by oudtshoorn again. We'll definetely stay at Earthbound again. Best B&B so far on our SA trip!

We really loved our stay in this B&B. It was like living in a dream. The bedrooms are big, nice, clean, cosy. with wonderful furniture. The beds are perfect with new, clean and well ironed bedlinen. And the owner is a friendly and lovable lady who gave us good suggestions about what to visit. And we all enjoyed relaxing in the wonderful garden, near the swimming pool. As it was winter, we couldn't have a swim, but the place was perfect to take a rest. There is also a safe parking for the car.

Located in a quiet neighbourhood, beautiful garden with swimming pool. Parking behind fence. We had the standard room, which wasn't very large but it was very cosy. We also had our pricate breakfast area. Breakfast was basic but good enough. Wifi wasn't available in the room, we had to go to the swimming pool. 5 minutes drive from the center.
Cheapest stay of our trip and better then some of our most expensive.
Highly recommended!

We stayed at the Earthbound B&B for one night this week and LOVED it! We booked the deluxe room which was recently newly decorated and has a new bathroom. It looks very modern and cosy at the same time, and has a fabulous bathroom with a large walkin shower and bath tub on ostrich feet. It also has it's own covered patio. Lottie welcomed us and showed us the room. The owner Marie has paid very much attention to details in decorating the room and bathroom. Everything you can imagine, she has thought of and is there. It's just perfect :-) The self help breakfast was very good as well and plenty for the two of us! We loved our stay here and highly recommend this B&B to anyone staying in Oudtshoorn!!

Room Tip: The deluxe room is the newest one and is great! The other two rooms will get new bathrooms later in...

Stayed here for one night on our road trip to Addo NEP, beautiful place to settle down! Halfway from Cape Town to Addo. The room has everything you wish for, is very clean. We were welcomed by Lottie and she showed us around. Even suggested to cook breakfast for us which we declined. Changes are rare that we ever go to Oudtshoorn again but we would definitely sleep here!
Conclusion; good value for money nice quiet place

I cant express how pleased my husband and myself where with this guest house. We where met with such a warm welcome I knew we would like it there, the staff where wonderful. The price we paid was one of the lowest in our trip to South Africa so we did not expect luxury but we did get it. I have stayed in 5 star hotels with less space, facilities and attention to detail everything was wonderful. On arrival a range of flyers for local tourist attractions and places to eat where on the bed along with two little chocolates. The pool was lovely and big there where pool towels provided for us so there was no need to use our own. There was a little kitchen area where we could make our own breakfast which was provided. The bathroom was huge and there where all the toiletries you could think of provided. All in all This was the best guest house we stayed at in a month long trip in South Africa.
