Spent two night again on our second stay and could not fault a thing. Thanks so much to Zoe and Hew once again. Made us feel like old friends. Such a lovely place to stay. Walking distance to town for drinks or dinner.

After a long drive we were greeted by a very friendly Zoe & Huw, great first impression. We were then shown to our rooms, they were soooo clean & welcoming, with a fridge and complimentary water. The beds were super comfy. Considering this guesthouse is on a main road in Oudtshoorn it is very quiet. There is plenty of choice...

I have stayed with Zoe and Hew a few times and even on the busiest week of the year, i always get the impression that they try to give as much as possible. During the festival all the guesthouses do smaller breakfasts, yoghurts, fruit etc, Here you get ostrich sausage, bread and butter pudding, fruit, yoghurt eggs, toast, homemade jams.......

Lovely guesthouse, with fabulous hosts. We only stayed for one night, but was pleasantly surprised, with the house, rooms, beautiful garden and wonderful breakfast. Zoe delighted us with her home made puddings and pastries on Easter Monday, accompanied with copious amounts of good coffee and Easter eggs. Their passion for people, exudes joy and comfort in their habitat. Friendly and...

We visited a few years ago and our hosts Zoe and Hugh were as lovely and friendly as before. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the breakfast was amazing including the daily freshly made muffins. The rooms were all spacious and beds really comfortable. we made use of the small pool and soaked up some sun while we were there.

A delightful B&B with friendly, helpful hosts. Very convenient, aesthetically pleasing and spotlessly clean. (Yummy breakfast!) Loved our stay, although it was so short. Look forward to another visit in the near future.

We can see why this place has had such good reviews. It is comfortable, has everything more or less that you wish from a bed-and-breakfast and very friendly and helpful owners. We spent our time exactly as they had suggested and were glad we did. Highly recommended.

The rooms here open onto the garden and most have a small verandah for that all important glass of wine in the evening. Our room was modest in size, but beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean. The bed was extremely conmfortable, and although number 88 is on the main street there was no noise at night. We were welcomed warmly by...

WOW...... What an amazing, if all too brief stay in the 88 Baron van Reede Guesthouse. As pretty much everyone else has stated, Zoe and Huw are brilliant, welcoming hosts who have great knowledge of the local area and nothing is a chore to them. We arrived and Zoe came out to greet us as we parked up in the...

We spent two very enjoyable nights here. Zoe and Huw are great hosts, nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are lovely and the breakfasts are great. This is a really lovely guest house in a great location. I hope that we will be back next year.
