Very nice, location but feel like they lost the passion for the property. Many broken bits, not that tidy or well maintained. Rooms were huge and the kitchen adequate! The manageress was informative but bit reserved for a backpackers!

We stay one night and the stuff was really helpful with everything. They received us with maps of all the places we wanted to visit and it was a really cool stay. The place is okay for a short time staying. We stay in the family room and we have a really great time.

We really enjoyed staying here there was a lovely braai and pool area which really helped with the heat and the house was nice and big and the service was great and we got to meet a lot of foreigners which is always exciting to talk to them and learn about their country

I booked online with the greatest of ease. Confirmation received immediately. I made changes to my return journey without any hassles or additional cost. I had a problem trying to find kennel facilities on a Sunday in Oudsthoorn however the staff at Oasis Shanti were extremely accomodating and allowed me to have my 2 dogs in my room with me....

Friendly, warm & cozy...close to Town(shops) & secure. Couldn't explore the property & entertainment because of the cold & rainy weather...but overall it was nice. Friendly, warm & cozy...close to Town(shops) & secure.

WE had a nice time. Our own chalet next to the pool. Quite close to the centre of Oudtshoorn if you want to walk. We have used this place a few times going from Cape-town to Port Elizabeth, and is well worth the money.

The only thing not so great was the fear of criminality in the city of Oudtshoorn...we did not feel safe enough there but that's not the fault of the place. A very good thing was the electronic blankets!

Very helpful staff with swimming pool, fully equipped kitchen, living room, dining room and bathrooms. This is not a bohemian pad, but an efficient super-affordable place to camp or stay if you have business in town or are passing through. Excellent security - they were very quick to arrest a suspect person loitering in the street during the annual arts...
