Oakdene Guest House

Traveller (33)
Room & Suite (8)
Pool & Beach (4)
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.
