My daughter and I stayed for 1 night in Klipheuwel Country House, some 7 kilometers outside Oudtshoorn on the road to Volmoed of the R328. They are neighbours of the better known 'De Zeekoe Guest House'.
To my opinion this guest house is underestimated. Klipheuwel's rooms are spacious, with an extremely spacious bathroom. Everything is spic&span. The rooms are tastefully furnitured in ‘Country & Garden’ style. De rooms are situated next to porch, which in turn is situated next to the swimming pool. In a few meters you are from your room in the swimming pool. Breakfast is served on the porch in front of your room, unless (as we had) it is raining. In that case breakfast is served in the family living room. Breakfast is abundant.
Klipheuwel is part of an ostrich breeding farm. Guided tours can be asked for. Disadvantages of the guest house: there is no WiFi (yet). And there are a lot flies. The host herself thinks this is a nuisance, but they haven't found a solution yet. Still, this my reason to rate cleanliness with 3 stars instead of 5. For the rest, highly recommended. I'll certainly return.
