We chose to stay at the Riempie Hotel after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor, and asked our travel agent to book it, even though it was not one of their usual hotels. Closer to our time of arrival, we went on tripadvisor again and was horrid with all the negative feedback, so we were a bit edgy to stay at...

Stayed there for one night en-route and found this hotel a perfect place for a couple of days/nights. I loved the grounds with the beautiful green lawns and plants and the different bird species. The swimming pool area looked quite inviting and nice place to unwind after a long day on the road. The food was good. Due to the...

This hotel is attractive with little round bungalows and nice grounds but it does need some maintenance. One positive point is that the bed was very comfortable. Also our room did have a safe contrary to what some other reviewers have stated. But as mentioned by many other guests, the WiFi doesn't work in the room. We chose not to...

We came to visit family in Oudtshoorn, and stayed at the Rimpie hotel. What an charming hotel. The rooms are bungalows and chalets, but have all the essentials needed in a hotel room, such as air-con and Flat Screen Tv. It also have clean white bedding. The restaurant is also an extra bonus with their Roosterkoek Hamburgers. They also have...

If you need wifi in your room do not stay in this hotel. Be prepared that wifi will not be available in the room. Also very bad response in the lobby. The problem can be solved very easy by adding few cheap repeaters.

Beautiful location, excellent service, good food and friendly staff and management. Recently taken over and the new owners have great plans for an even better experience. All the rondawels are being upgraded. A must stay if you are looking for something authentic and South African in Oudtshoorn. This is true South African hospitality and atmosphere! Ronell Roome
