The Turnberry Boutique Hotel is situated very central and walking distance from other restaurants and shopping. You are welcomed by friendly staff. Rooms are spacious with modern shower and airconditioning. The TV set in my room is small with very limited stations and bad reception. Some rooms are affected by street noise. There is a bar and swimming pool with outside seating for relaxation Breakfast and this hotel is not on a 4 star rating.

Siska and her team went out of their way to make our stay extra special! Very efficient, friendly and very helpful. Offered to make dinner reservations for us and even organized room service. The room was beautifuly made with fresh flowers, fresh fruit and what a treat having a cocktail upon arrival. All requests was handled professionally and with a smile. The pool was spotless and the bar is a nice addition to the property. Would definitely recommend the hotel and will definitely stay over again in the future. Well done and Thank you!

We received a warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble for our lovely Manager Siska. On arriving our rooms had been set to a comfortably cool temperature as this area can be very hot. The beds were the best we have slept in and the linen was good quality. We had fun in the cozy bar and each morning our breakfast was outstanding. We turned down what was a tempting Braai as we wanted to explore far and wide but if we had stayed longer it sounded something not to be missed. The staff will go the extra mile for you and nothing is too much trouble. We highly recommend Turnberry Hotel!!

As seasoned travellers who have stayed in many types of accommodations from rough camping to fancy hotels, we understand what money can buy in terms of accommodation.
The boutique experiences sold to us (at a premium price) through their website and adverting, failed to deliver.
Getting to try and make a booking was the first red flag. Phone just rang. Whatsapp number did not exist. Upon arrival after finally making a booking, no one answered the gate buzzer for some time. Once inside, the staff were very friendly, courteous and helpful. That changed once we were booked in. They all but vanished until breakfast the following morning.
The room and bathroom were clean, the bed and bedding very comfortable and offered a great nights sleep.
The other furniture was dated and some pieces in need of repair, and others like the bathroom vanity showed signs of repair that were not befitting the boutique experience sold to us via their website pictures.
The air conditioner did work and cooled the room quickly, however it was far too loud to have on while sleeping. The tv was the size of a computer screen and did not have the cable channels as advertised.
The coffee/tea station was stocked with the cheapest instant coffee sachets available.

The Scottish themed pub, being a big draw card, was unmanned every time we tried to visit it. Disappointingly too, it’s a smoking pub and reeked of stale cigarette smoke.

The luxury breakfast had all the elements, but the presentation lacked finesse, the service was shocking, and the buffet was not restocked. Upon asking what was available to order for the hot breakfast (as there were no menus), the waitron needed three trips to the kitchen to ask questions before the chef came out to assist. The chef was the highlight as she presented us with a tasty hot breakfast.

The Turnberry Boutique Hotel has a lot of potential should the owner/managers choose to put the effort in. Until such time, this hotel does not deserve the 4 star rating it currently has, and will just be another tired and ageing hotel in a small town.

Room Tip: Our room was quiet because it backs onto a school. We stayed during a school holiday.

I stayed for 2 nights on different days.
Although booked through Lekkerslaap the days of arrival I was met by friendly staff who showed me my room and all other facilities I can make use off during my stay over.
Breakfast preparation was excellent.
I will be using this stay over in near future and will also do my own market on this venue.
Once again thank you very much for the friendliness and particular Siska de Kock for her careing personality.

We spent two wonderful nights at the Turnberry Boutique Hotel and had a great time. The attention to detail and the personal involvement of the Management and staff made the experience even more delightful. Too many highlights to mention but will definitely return and can recommend this special place in the Klein Karoo.

Carpets in public areas and our room were filthy and have clearly not seen a vacuum cleaner in months. Door lock needs attention. We did not try the included breakfast, as we did not feel comfortable to have food prepared on this premises.

Bfast was ok. Asked for mince meat at 8am and staff told me they can’t refill. They have to make it again. Bfast time was till 10am. Not worth the stay and will never come back to the hotel.

We urgently required overnight accommodation for 7 adults and 2 small dogs during peak season and on short notice. Siska and her team worked wonders to accommodate us. The beautiful hotel is reminiscent of Oudtshoorn's rich history. The extraordinary bar has an old-world charm with a wonderful atmosphere. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We shall definitely return, should the opportunity arise.

Overall the stay was very good. The hotel is well situated for business trips but out of the main stream of roads, Although minimum staff for the night shift - service was still good. Due to load shedding the systems were down but invoice was ready following day. Recommend some lighting during power failures.
