During our stop in Robertson we spent a night in DE OUDE OPSTAL. We have been driving on blue carpet of jacaranda blossoms straight to the entrance at the end of the street. What a special welcome! The main house is an old capestyle house in the middle of fantastic parklike garden. We stayed in the "out of africa room" which was decorated in wonderful african style. Especially the bathroom was lovely with all the typical african earth colours. The room was very clean and there was enough space for all travel equipment. The breakfast was excellent and served on the veranda. Although it is not quite cheap it is worth every rand you spend.

Vacation at the Oude Opstal is like visiting good friends. The owners Marianne and Rudolf are so nice and helpfull to us. If have any problems or needs - Rudi and Marianne will take care about it. They give us tips for the surrounding area and recommendations, what we can visit in Robertson.
For the garden i have only some words:huge, nice, beautiful and amazing. The rooms are very clean and have different themes. Rudi have also managed, that in the guest house and in the garden in front of the guest house the Wifi is working perfect. If you visit Robertson and like a familiar, clean and beautiful place, you have to stay here.

The loveliest garden you have ever seen, a joy to walk to around en enjoy the beautiful flowers in the different gardens. Nice large pool. Lovely breakfast on the veranda of the beautifull premises. The owners Rudy and Marianne do all they can to make your stay the best and have lots of info for trips and so on. De oude Opstal is quitly located, but within walkingdistance from city centre (which is not very interesting) We stayed at one of the B&B rooms in the garden (no fridge) which has a nice seat overlooking the innergarden. The Oude opstal has lots of space araound it which makes you feel free. We peaked at the other (self catering room) an that looked also lovely. Easy 10 min walk to centre of Robertson. Best restaurant is probalby Brooklyn restaurant (? ask Rudy) is our best tip to eat. We recommand this to everybody and if we are lucky enough to make it to Robertson, we will go to Rudy and Marinanne definitely!!

We stayed in De Oude Opstal in November for a couple of nights, it is the oldest house in Robertson in the dutch cape style. The house is so well maintained and the gardens are magnificent, lovely to relax in... The location is really good with only a short drive to the vineyards, we did a tour of Viljoensdrift vineyard where you can take a picnic on their boat which is a fabulous experience! Rudi and Marianne were great hosts, they surprised us one morning at breakfast with a table set up in the garden as it was a beautiful day and it is lovely to sit and admire the roses. We would definitely recommend the B&B which is good value for money and wish Rudi and Marianne all the best for the future
