Best Little Guest House
Ranked #30 of 77 Oudtshoorn B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 4, 2012

A quiet peaceful retreat located 1.5k away from Oudtshoorn town centre. This B&B provided a perfect relaxing environment after a long drive.
The owners were very welcoming and helpful providing us with a list of restaurants to eat at and directions.
Breakfast was in an attractive breakfast room or on a terrace (which we chose) and was lovely with plenty of food.
The pool was clean and quirky with a fantastic water feature.
The rooms were clean and well furnished, and the air conditioning was a must given the heat. All in all we would recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a place to stay here

When we booked this guest house the conditions declared that the room was including airconditioning. However, when we arrived at the guest house they told us that we had to pay extra if we wanted to use the airconditioning. The rooms were very clean, there is a private parking space and a nice veranda at the backside. We didn't sleep very well because of the quality of the pillows (we used towels under the pillow). The owners are friendly people and the breakfast was good. The temperatures of the shower weren't stabel. And to enter the bathroom you have to go through swing doors, we didn't bother (it looks authentic) but there is a little bit less privacy because of that.

The best little guesthouse is great value for money. It's an easy to find, central venue with comfortable rooms in an historic but excellently maintained building. The service is both personal and discrete. The time for breakfast is flexible to an early business schedule and the catering was sensitive to my need for a healthy start. I stayed five days and it will be my first choice for my next trip whether for business or with my wife.

This was our second visit to the guest house. (First time 2004). We had the lovely room with direct access to the pool. Very friendly owners and staff. Free Wi Fi was a bonus and provision of towels for the pool was unexpected at such a small establishment, but very welcome. We were made to feel 'at home'. The breakfasts were good and varied. Of the 6 guest houses we stayed in on our 'Garden Route' tour this year, this was the least expensive, even with the air-conditioning. Hence we feel it really is the BEST Little guest house.

Room Tip: Pool access room super

Friendly on arrival.
Room was horrible,most uncomfortable bed and pillows.
Had to wait to long for breakfast and when it arrived the bacon was cold and the white of the egg was runny.
A Businessman that was staying there for almost a month, said he has had the same breakfast for more than a month!!!
Safe parking is the only good thing I can say about this place.
