Reviewed yesterday NEW

This was my third visit to the Old Oak, which have been spread over the last six years. It is like being at home. Gerda and her staff look after all the guests so well and I usually avoided eating lunch after one of Gerda's hearty breakfasts. I will be back!

Second time we have stayed there, would recommend it to anyone. Gerda goes out of her way to make us feel at home. The facilities are excellent (with a pool) and for us it is close enough to visit family and a central place to visit all the surrounding area.

Gerda runs an excellent guest house and always makes me feel right at home. Everything you'll ever need for a short or extended stay. In the past I stayed there for months at a time while on business in Bellville. I can highly recommended Old Oak Guest House.

Lovely place. We have been to many places before but not so many with the sort of personal touch that Greda gives. We never felt like guests but more like family. Will definitely miss the breakfast that the owner puts so much thought and effort into.

As always, Gerda makes my wife and Jill so welcome that when in Cape Town this is our home from home! 16 years now and counting! The breakfasts are amazing! Now there is a new King size bed in the Honeymoon suite, WOW! It is fantastic.
