We arrived to be told we were in the accommodation across the road which we hadn't realised but actually it was quieter and the pool was bigger and the views lovely. The room was large, clean and the bathroom good although there was a problem with the shower which we needed to report. Breakfast was good and served near our...

We have been there many times before. It is always a privilege to visit Mooiplaas. Very high quality accommodation. Much attention to detail. Friendly efficient service. Beautiful views. Close to Oudtshoorn's famous Highgate ostrich farm.

Although the place is exceptional, its out of town, roughly 15kms. But the room is superb, Andre (host) is awesome, breakfast was great too, one of the best out of 10+ places we had. Also no pushy sales, just very helpfull. We had a car btw, and then out of town is relative. It's just 15 minutes away. We loved...

We arrived for a 1 night stay as part of a Titan tour group. We came to the conclusion that they had never had a large group to stay before as they really didn't know what to do with us. The room we had was very large with a separate toilet and bathroom and a huge bed with lots of...

I took my family to Oudtshoorn for a few days. Friends recommended Mooiplaas Guesthouse to us. What a great experience. Wonderful, spacious rooms, immaculate grounds, the friendliest staff, and great food. Lots to do on the farm for the whole family, with our friendly hosts always there to assist. A visit to the nearby Highgate a must. We enjoyed our...

Of all the places we stay during our holiday this was our least favourite. There are a few buildings to stay in and when we arrived at reception we were told our room was downstairs which actually meant across the road in another house. The room itself was good and breakfast was ok not really a big choice. Our main...

We had never stayed on an ostrich farm before and we loved it. We had driven up from Plett and it was nice to be in the peace and total quiet of Mooiplas. Our room was in the 'new' site with a patio area that had an uninterrupted view for miles to the distant mountains (see photo) We walked across...

The rooms are very nice, and the views can be good, but this place is in the middle of nowhere. People may like to take their children to see the ostriches, but this means the rest of us are told off for talking in the open air after 9.30pm! There is nowhere to talk other than the open air -...
