The best guest house in Oudtshoorn. I can recommend Oue Werf to anyone that is looking for peace, quiet and excellent service. This was our second stay at Oue Werf and I will book there again. The staff is great with friendly smiles all around. Keep doing what you are doing - you have a winning recipe !!

One of the best places we have stayed in. The owners are very friendly, even though part of our party of 8 arrived late they waited until we were all there to serve dinner. The food is excellent (dinner and breakfast). The rooms were comfortable and clean. We will definitely go again and they deserve 12/10! Signed party of 8...

What a find. We were met in a really friendly welcoming way, and shown to our beautiful room. This took quite a while as we were mesmerised by the beautiful gardens. There were beds of pure white roses everywhere which against the blue sky and the lake looked wonderful. Our room was lovely with everything we could possibly need. We...

This is one of the most beautiful places I have stayed in the 102 countries I have visited. The welcome by Ardri was exceptional and the beauty of the place was almost breathtaking. The accommodation was luxurious and very reasonably priced. Next time I will be sure to spend more time there, and more time in this fabulous area. They...

What a beautiful place to stay if you like a homely environment, and if you enjoy quaint little places. The owner, Annelie, can tell you many stories about the history of the area and the property. She immediately makes you feel like part of the family. Don't miss out on a great meal, proper South African cooking. I would definitely...

In a nice idyllic setting, the guesthouse is very close to all the attraction around Oudtshoorn (Cango caves, ostrich farms, etc.). The owners also have 2 ostriches at the property - King George and Emily. With well equipped confortable rooms and breakfast included, it was good value for money.

We stayed just one night at the Oue Werf Guesthouse. It is a beautiful place, fantastic room in the grounds with own front door, was more like a small cottage than a room, lovely attention to detail. Stunning location, with stable door looking out onto a lake. Annelie was very friendly and kindly arranged for transport for us when we...
