This is the second time we have stayed here and was even better than the first. Just 2 of us but booked the family room as it’s such a beautifully decorated and spacious room. Attention to detail is incredible- small flowers placed everywhere- even on the toilet roll! Beautiful tranquil garden and short stroll to the church or a local winery. Situated midway between Kango caves and Oudtshoorn so a 15 min drive to Oudtshoorn restaurants. (We don’t recommend the nearby Mill restaurant towards Kango) What we do recommend are the Braai (barbecue) put on most nights by the host. Beautifully cooked local meats - very tender ostrich and home produced vegetables and South African melk tart pudding. Highly recommended and we would certainly go back again.
This bed and breakfast is not situated in the center of Oudtshoorn, but close to an ostrich farm; it was an ideal location for us to make the trip to the Meiringspoort and through the Swartbergpas, really beautiful! The room was a bit small but comfortable with a good bed and some nice attentions of the house. Very nice garden with pool.
We arrived at Die Fonteine after an 11 hour drive and walking into the room was like getting the biggest hug! Sherry waiting for us, absolutely beautifully furnished room and spotless bathroom with a massive shower. The most comfortable bed we had slept in for 3 weeks on our trip! We woke up the next morning to see the exquisite garden around us and swam in the gorgeous pool looking out at the mountains. Breakfast was amazing! The owner is so lovely and has put so much thought and detail into every aspect of her property and service. Highly recommend...wish we could have stayed longer.
We stayed here because it is close to Cango Caves, which was on our list of “must do”. The property is set in beautiful gardens and we could feel the love which has been poured into this venue the moment we drove through the gate. Die Fonteyn is surrounded by farmland, - a beautiful church, a prestigious winery and an ostrich farm are all a very short stroll away. There was a decanter of complimentary sherry in our room - a first! The owner advertised her evening meal, a set menu, on a board at reception..... I urge you to eat here, the food is lovely, the vegetables are from the garden, the bread is homemade, portions are generous and fab BBQ meats. The owner is clearly a talented and caring cook.
We booked a room for 2 nights in December. First evening we had a Braai on site done by the Owners themselfs with a soup as a starter, Ostrich Steaks, Chicken and Borewors from the Grill. As a Dessert the had a vanilla tart very tasty. The surroundings of the Guesthouse really stunning, a big garden with a lot of plants, flowers etc.. A pool is also on site. Very nice and friendly treatment during our stay. Good value for money. Also a bit out of Town is worth to decide for this Location. A Ostrich Farm is across the Street and the Karusa Wine Estate as well just around the corner. Two Restaurants close. We would come back if we go again to Oudtshoorn.
