Mooiplaas Guesthouse
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 28, 2013

We stayed one night in this guesthouse. Andre the owner was amazing - this guy is so friendly, funny and nice - we had a great time. The room was very spacious and very clean. We even had a little veranda with a table and chairs. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast offered a lot of fresh ingredients and warm meals. The service was outstanding, the staff great. Eventhough it rained for the whole day, we had a great time. We will definitely come back.

This is a very nice place to stay. Comfortable and very clean. Andre was extremely attentive host and went out of his way to make sure that we were comfortable and happy. We had an ostrich braai (barbecue) for supper which was great. The tour of the ostrich farm with Ben is a must. Ben is such a nice man and extremely knowledgeable.

Many repeat visits Andre is a star, your hospitality is outstanding, the staff are great so friendly and nothing too much trouble. the ostrich tour was great - holding the babies was awesome. The setting is glorious, the pool lovely and the rooms wonderful. This was our second stay and we will certainly come again and will recommend you to one and all. The ostrich steaks for dinner are superb and cooked beautifully.

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely and peaceful

We spent 2 nights at Mooiplaas guesthouse with our 4 children, and the full family really enjoyed it... Very nice environment, excellent service quality, beautiful and clean bedrooms, great family room, but the best was the ostrich experience...
The ostrich BBQ dinner was simply outstanding (the meat was excellent, the shiraz wine a perfect combination), and the ostrich farm tour a great experience, particularly the visit of the incubators with the babies getting out of the eggs, as well as the visit of the kindergarten with all these one week old ostriches... Needless to say that the kids particularly enjoyed taking the babies in their hands...
Net net, an overall great experience and a place that we recommend without hesitation...

Room Tip: We were in the family cottage on the other side of the road... It is particularly pleasant and calm...

I booked this guest house on line via bookings.com. All we wanted was somewhere to stay for the night and to see a few ostriches. We got a bit lost and emailed the property who answered straight back with helpful instuctions, and we soon found it. We were greeted by Andre the lovelist host we has ever had the pleasure of meeting, he was the manager on duty that day and one of lifes gems. He showed us to our room, and just was so welcoming, we immediately felt at home. He asked if we had dinner plans, which we hadn't and since we'd just driven from Franschhoek we were quite tired. Andre then suggested that we might like to have supper at the house as he was cooking a braai - ostrich of course. Well what a wonderful three course meal we had, followed by Andre entertaining us and a few of the other guests with a bit of the story of the farm, and arming us with some knowledge of ostrich leather and feathers. We ended up having unexpected great night of fun. A nice lttle touch was that when we got back to our room there were nibbles and glasses of port by the bedside.
Breakfast the following morning was lovely - scrambled ostrich eggs of course, was on the menu along with bacon sausages etc.
After breakfast we attended the ostrich farm tour with some of the other guests that were staying, and now what I don't know about the life cycle, history, and nurturing of an ostrich isn't worth knowing. The guy who's name I have forgotten was really interesting, and so knowelegable. We went into the incubator room, and then to to nursery where the 1 day old ostriches were kept, and were allowed to cuddle them. I was ever to tempted to pop one in my bag they were just so cute, but sanity prevailed.
We loved this place so much that we decided to stay an unscheduled 2nd night it was that nice.
The luxury room was really comfortable, flat screen TV, nice furnishing, bath products, big bathroom, comfortable bed and the view from the room is spectacular over the countryside. The house also has a lovely warm outdoor pool, and sun loungers to relax on. It also has pretty fast free WIFI, which is always nice when you're on holiday.
Would I go back - Yes most certainly.
Drawbacks - It's about 10km from town if you wanted to venture out at night, you'd have to drive. However we didn't find this a problem as found everything we needed on site.
The actual property is across the road from the ostrich farm, and there are daily tours at 930am which

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...
