Stayed at the guest house for one night. However the welcoming we got was amazing. They asked us what we would like for breakfast. They made sure our room was warm and even gave each of us electric blankets.

The owner couple are doing excellent job in providing a personal care for visitors. Rooms are very tidy, clean and the breakfast is prepared & served by the owner. This was the biggest plus point - over & above the great price in Oudtshoorn. We stayed for night of 18-april-2017. The hot water was very dirty - the only minus...

The downstairs rooms were spacious and adequatly furnished. The accommodation overlooking the small garden were off the main street and therefore nice and quiet. The Wi-Fi reception in the room were poor which made the internet connection very slow. Breaksfast were however lovely and the owners and staff friendly.

Our room (Sunbird) had an excellent sea view and mountain view. The room was absolutely clean - but toilet is not in a separat room! Shower and bath are in the room. The location is only ~250 m from restaurants, shops and 400 m to the nice and clean beach - easy to go. Room had comfortable beds and you...

We checked in at about 2pm on a Friday - it was a little weird with the owner crawling around on the floor to find the remote for the TV which had not been noticed as missing during cleaning and was under the bed. Upon turning the aircon on we immediately said its not working - he indicated it would...

We found this to be a nice little guesthouse run by a lovely couple who did a great breakfast for us. The room was clean spacious and had all the amenities we needed. The fact that it's right next to a few great restaurants is a bonus too. Would definitely stay again.
