“great place to stay”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Our family stayed for 2 nights at Mooiplass Guesthouse on our Oudtshoorm region trip. It was perfect. The rooms where great, amazing hospitality (great recommendation from them on what to do) and the breakfast was great. The B&B is a bit far from the city center (about 10 km) but it worth the driving.

I have stayed at Mooiplaas a couple of times for quite a lengthy period of time ( 2 to 3 weeks) . It is the only place to stay........ especially when you are far away from home for so long! The accommodation is superb, the service is even better and the staff ...... what can I say? Professional, but always accommodating, goes out of their way to make the stay super special and makes you feel totally at home!Nothing is too much trouble! I love the place and the people ...and yes, that is my no 1 home away from home.

Room Tip: Self catering units are great for long stays especially. Magnificent sunsets, fquiet arm atmosphere...

A few minutes drive from oudtshoorn with welcoming bougainvillea hedges lies Mooiplaas guest house. Par excellence is the only work I have for this place.
Rooms were superbly decorated with their own little sitting spaces behind and had a long corridor with a fire place and comfy sofas to lounge around. Breathtaking views of the Outeniqua Mountains and being in the midst of the Klein Karoo are an added advantage.
Attention to details presented itself in the form of me discovering rose petals in my
Toilet, this is only a sample. The range of toiletries was fit for a king and queen.
It is an experience that has to be savoured. Special mention to Andre who was ever ready to help with anything. Was too cold to use the pool.Hope to be back there sometime.

Room Tip: The rooms in the first wing facing the pool are great.

This guest house is a 10-15 minutes drive from the town of Oudtshoorn. More like a farm stay the Mooiplaas is in a picturesque setting surrounded by numerous farms and offers a delightful stay. Take a stroll around sunset/sunrise with your camera and you will be richly rewarded with beautiful pictures.
There are 19 rooms, a pool and a restaurant in the property and the rooms are tastefully done and have a fridge, mini bar, coffee maker, oven and a TV. Flowers, leaves and petals are placed in several places in the room and the bathroom and they are lovely.One can relax in the long verandas in the evening and also order dinner which is expensive (by SAF standards) at 200 Rand per person. You would be better off driving to Oudtshoorn for dinner at half the price. Breakfast is good and you could choose to have Ostrich eggs and meat. Internet is free but very slow.
The Manager Andre and the lady who owns the place are attentive and make you feel at home. I love this place and so would you – highly recommended.

Room Tip: Pick any room in the ground level and you can't go wrong.

I arrived yesterday with my clients, and was pleasantly suprised to find the wonderful guest house.
From the moment we arrived we were welcomed and shown our room which were beautiful. My clients had dinner here and they were more that happy with the service and the food provided. Oe thing that stood out for me is the peaceful atmosphere, i could of stayed for a week. As a tour Guide who travels these part extensively, i am most impressed with my short stay at Mooiplaas.
I give this place a big thumbs up... well worth coming to stay here.

Room Tip: All well situated

Stayed at Mooiplass for 3 nights for the KKNK arts festival.
Room and bathroom were stunning. The breakfasts and suppers were also awesome. Will be back.
