What an amazing place! I don't think I can find the appropriate words to explain how awesome Sonas Boutique Guest House is. From the moment of arrival till departure you are great with smiles, care and utmost attention to details. What a magnificent guest house - I have travelled the world 4 times, been to more than 100 countries, more than 289 establishments and this one ranks top notch! Beautiful rooms, clean, modern and sophisticated but not over the top! Scenery that bewilders the mind and fills the heart, pool and an outside Jacuzzi - beautiful lounge where we sat chatting with exceptional wine poured ... thank you for filling our Oudtshoorn visit with amazing comfort, beautiful photos and OUTSTANDING HOSPITALITY!

Don't think twice: book this guest house if you're in Oudtshoorn. And make it 2 nights. Amazing service, super friendly hosts with a great passion for people and sense of what takes to be hospitable, beautifully decorated house and terrace. Truly amazing. We really enjoyed our stay to the max and felt spoilt by our hosts in many ways. Breakfast just superb. Weighly recommend this place !

Myself and my husband stayed here for one night as part of a self drive holiday and it really is as good as it looks in the pictures! It’s an intimate guesthouse with incredible interiors, the attention to detail is really fantastic with everything you would expect from a luxury hotel. The service was great too - we enjoyed chatting with the owner and felt the service was personal and attentive. There is an amazing infinity pool and jacuzzi with stunning views. The guesthouse is in a quiet residential area, a few mins drive from the main town - the owner recommended some local restaurants and mentioned that a few of them have shuttles so will pick you up, although we didn’t make use of this as we were happy to drive to dinner. Fantastic breakfast too - one of the best on our holiday as the dishes are a bit different to your usual full English. We felt so relaxed and wish we could have stayed longer!

I stayed at Sonas with a friend. To say we were blown away by the house and the beautiful surroundings would be an understatement. Well located for the sites and activities in Oudtshoorn, it is the most wonderful haven to relax in. The hosts make sure your stay is extra special, creating the ultimate 5 star stay. Highly recommended.

Many thanks for your kind words. It was great to have a 'slice' of UK and Belgium stay at Sonas! You certainly both made the most of it in a short space of time and we really enjoyed your company and seeing you have lots of fun. In the hope that we will meet you and your friends again soon. All the very best for now.

I recently stayed at Sonas with friends from South Africa. New to the market, the premises is stunning, contemporary with great attention to detail, in a fantastic location, with breathtaking mountain views, yet just a few minutes drive from town. We were quite simply treated royally throughout our stay. I enjoyed soaking up a tan on the pool loungers, and swimming in the stunning infinity pool (which is seriously big - see the pictures!), in between enjoying the 'mandatory' dips for relaxation in the jacuzzi. I even made time to check out the superbly equipped Gym, very unlike me while on holiday! After a gourmet buffet & à la carte breakfast, we relished great tourist attractions during our stay, including Cango Caves, Cango Wildlife Ranch, a drive up the Swartberg Mountains, & lovely strolls along the spectacular Wilderness & Victoria bay beaches. In the evenings, we chilled out on the stunning terraces, watching the sunset, and also enjoyed some of the local restaurants for scrumptious food. I slept like a baby in the 'Superior King Suite' (aptly named!), which was a luxurious haven with excellent amenities. This was my first time to the Western Cape. We look forward to another trip soon, as there is so much left to see. A huge thank you for such a memorable stay.

WOW! What great feedback. It's greatly appreciated. We really enjoyed looking after you and your friends. You mentioned while here you were looking for some 'downtime' and you struck the perfect balance between enjoying the facilities we have on offer, yet you also managed to do some really great trips. I hope we will see you back in South Africa again soon and wish you all the very best in the meantime. Best wishes, Rayno

It was great to have you both choose Sonas for 3 nights of your honeymoon in what was such a special holiday no doubt for you both. I recall lots of jokes and perennial laughter and it was just so satisfying to see you both have such a good time. Needless to say, I look forward with glee to welcoming you both again soon on your next trip to SA. A big thanks for sharing such a special time for you both here at Sonas!

My wife and I stayed in Sonas in January 2018 and our expectations were exceeded by the service, quality and friendliness that we encountered. The location was perfect near town (a 5 min drive) yet an oasis set in the countryside and a perfect hub for day trips. A superb breakfast set us up for our excursions to places such as the Cango caves, Wilderness beach and the Swartberg Mountains. The house its decor and facilities are top class, it felt like we were invited into a fabulous home. The views of the mountains from the 15m pool and sun decks are amazing particularly at sun set. Thank you for making our visit feel so special.
