The Oval is definitely our go to place anytime we're in the Western Cape! The rooms are fantastic and comfortable! The hosts Mike and Louise, along with their wonderful staff, are so welcoming and will go out of their way to make your staff perfect. Along with the delicious breakfast (my husband's favourite part of visiting), it is the perfect place to stay when in the Western Cape. I can't recommend it enough!

Great location, very quiet and safe. Really pleasant and clean rooms. But the best thing are the staff: they are very kind and helpful and generous with their time and advice. I have been there twice and I really recommend it both for a nice holiday or a few-days trip.

This is the second time I have stayed at "The Oval" and it certainly won't be the last. Living out of Cape Town & visiting my elderly Mother allowed us the same ground floor room as before ,which was easy on her being familiar with it and the magnificent breakfast spread added to the "Special" stay that it was. A warm welcome from both Mike & Louise and a day to day check that all was in order with our stay.added to the charm and consideration these folk have for their guests.
