A beautiful garden area with pool deck and very nice flowers. The check in lady was very nice and freindl.y. We had 4 room. All rooms are very dark. In the night it was very loud with dogs barking the whole night and cars honking.. very thin walls. In the morning starting at 7 am you hear and smell the breakfast whar was very unpleasa and loud. During breakfast we asked for an omlette which they declined with the words to much work to do right now. Strange answer. However a nice place. They wash your car what I have really appreciated.

Stayed: March 2018, travelled with friends

We were greeted so warmly by our hostess on our arrival. She showed us to our lovely room and explained about breakfast etc. Our hostess also offered to book a restaurant for us for dinner. Aan de Oever Guesthouse is in a beautiful setting in beautiful gardens in a quiet part of town. There is also a pool for those who wish to swim. We will definitely stay at Aan de Oever again.

We appreciated the very warm and friendly welcome. The setting is beautiful, the breakfast buffet tasty and more than adequate. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay and would have liked to stay longer if possible.

We stayed for 2 nights in this most beautiful guesthouse. The staff were very welcoming and always efficiently handled any questions/difficulties were had. The individual rooms are ideal plus the sitting area immediately outside made the stay very comfortable.

The only downside we had was that we had a room without any real outlook except the back of the room in front of us. Some rooms had tremendous vista so I would suggest this is looked at carefully before an actual booking is made.

The choices for breakfast were excellent and suited all tastes - nobody should have left with any complaint out the food.

I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending this superb guesthouse.

Room Tip: Each room has a different aspect so check this out so it meets individual requirements

Good Afternoon Ruth,

It was lovely meeting you and thank you very much for the great feedback.
We totally agree with you that not all the rooms have a mountain or garden view, some have a courtyard view and are all listed with view to expect. This is very important that guests check they have booked the correct room and view to save disappointment. On the flip side, the entire garden and deck area is available for guests to enjoy and normally minimal time is spent in the room itself.

Best Wishes,
Aan de Oever Team

Guesthouse was as close to perfect as possible. It was ideally located, almost in the centre of town. All restaurants were within comfortable walking distance. Staff offered to make bookings for us at any restaurant (some were quite busy). Secure car parking was provided
