We were pleasantly surprised to find such a nice, quiet campsite in a Karoo town. Although on the edge of the town it feels like out-of-town. Very well maintained, ideal for couples. The campsite is small, ablutions old and small but very clean and well maintained. Highly recommended as a base to explore Prince Albert, Swartberg Pass and Gamkakloof/The Hell. We will definitely be back.

It is right in the middle of town. For camping the area are nice and grassy, bathrooms are clean and there is a dish washing area and with an extension lead you can have power in your tent. It is very cheap as well. We had a great stay!!!

Olienhof is a small campsite about 700 metres from the town centre. As far as you can speak of a town centre because Prince Albert is not a place to stay long, it is small and there is not much to do or see. We used it to spend the night before taking the Swartbergpass (we came from the north) to the Cango Caves.
Olienhof provides a safe and good place to stay with neat and clean ablution blocks.

The grassy lawns,neat ablution, friendly hosts were a great welcome
HOWEVER
the lack of management over their strict rules regarding noice after 10 pm were not upheld. And other campers kept us awake until 12pm.
We packed and left after 1 night and sorry to say I won't be back.

Unfortunately we didn't have a good stay here at all, because what was advertised as a "working olive farm" turned out to be a construction site with terrible noise waking us up at 6h30am! on the one side of our cottage, a building site was in full operation, while on the other side, a farm worker felled trees with an electric chainsaw (why he had to do this at 6.30am i do not know). What made matters worse was that the owners were completely unapologetic.

The cottages are extremely affordable at R150/per person/per night and relatively clean, but the furniture is VERY old and run down, and i didn't feel comfortable sitting on the grubby couches. There are much nicer and more central places in Prince Albert that offer good value for money and friendly service. No need to mess up your holiday by staying at Olienhof.

Tidy, comfortable & well-equipped cottages on the edge of town. Very quiet, and so dark at night that the stars are amazing. Friendly and helpful owners.

We camped at the olive farm site for 4 nights. Once our bush trailer was set up we had an exceptionally relaxing time. We were able to leave the camp to explore the surrounding area knowing that our campsite was safe. We loved the resident cats who seemed to know we were missing ours which we had to leave in a cattery. Wendy was very accommodating and was a welcoming hostess. The fellow campers were all friendly and we enjoyed the company. Recommended as a base stop for exploring - children may find the lack of entertainment a problem but it suits the more mature camper.

Lovely, clean cottages fully equiped and pet friendly. Lovely hosts, very reasonable pricing. This spot is ideal for people who want to relax and recharge close enough to town but also far enough away to give yph a farm feeling

We spent 2 nights in kalamata cottage. The bed was very comfy and the air conditioning very welcome as it was extremely hot. The quiet peaceful location is ideal for people requiring such, but there are no facilities e.g. pool, swings etc. Prince Albert is a quaint town with a number of restaurants and galleries to visit
