Oakdene is situated in the centre of historic Oudtshoorn. It captures all the character and heritage of a bygone era - the ostrich feather boom. This charming Victorian home was built in 1853 and declared a National Monument in 1988. Oakdene is sheltered under Oak trees in the centre of town, on the main tourist route. Oakdene is within walking distance from well-known restaurants to enjoy local wines and delicious Ostrich steaks. Since July 2017 Oakdene is under new Belgian ownership. After a complete refurbishment Oakdene will present itself in its historical Victorian glory. Oakdene has 6 newly styled en-suite rooms with bath or shower. All rooms are individual, have remote controlled air-conditioning, satellite flat panel TV, WiFi, coffee/tea trays, safe, hairdryer and bath accessories. Electric blankets in winter and other amenities will make you stay a pleasant one. Newly designed tropical garden with swimming pool, garden furniture, sun loungers and parasols to enjoy our sunny days. Breakfast is served in the "plaaskombuis" or outside on the patio facing the garden. Safe under cover parking on the premises.

We recently had the pleasure of staying over at Oakdene for a weekend. The hosts really went out of their way to make us feel welcome and accommodate us, as we had to leave early in the mornings for my son's gala, and were back late in the evenings. They even packed a lovely lunch box for me, as I was out too early for breakfast. We will definitely be back again, and hopefully we will get some more time to spend on the lovely verandah overlooking a beautiful garden.

It was a beautiful stay from start to finish. The hosts were very welcoming, even though we arrived after dark. Kindly they checked for us if any restaurants were open, and we were able to walk down the road for a really special dinner. The décor has been sensitively put together with various treasures and historical artifacts to support both the venue being a listed building, as well as include space for the necessary modern day comforts. The street facing room we had was very restful and quiet - a real chance of oversleeping. Breakfast was extensive, with home made bread and scones was a treat. The venue is located perfectly for my husband to reach the cycling routes, together with the scenic and cultural sights for us. We will definitely be staying there again.

Everything is about the guest house is great, it'd be perfect if dstv was installed because the tv is just there with a DVD player which noone uses I'm sure. Aside from that it's a perfect place to be.

Oakdene is a real guest house in the sense of the word. David and Sonja just LOVE to host people and excelled in order to make our stay nice. Beautiful rooms with wonderful comfortabel beds, a huge vintage bath, home made scones for breakfast... We had a great time at Oakdene and can only highly recommend this location for any traveller.
