Though only the second time, this has become our favourite go-to accommodation in Oudtshoorn for its central location to the centre of town and the swimming pool. As always, Linda and the staff treat us royally. We found the self-catering unit a refreshing bonus, loving the comfort and independence that an outside room affords.

I booked last minute for some work colleagues. Linda is absolutely amazing and the service was impeccable! Nothing was a problem to arrange. There were no complaints when the guest arrived very late at night and even arranged a very early breakfast when they had to depart early. HIGHLY recommended!
