Never again too expensive for the value of this stay.


I think you need new beds, they were really hard and uncomfortable.

Owner Comment (Hide)
I apologise the double mattress was uncomfortable for you however the next couple to sleep in that room raved about how good the mattress was for their backs and they stayed 5 nights. Most people prefer NEW firm mattresses compared to old soft mattresses as it supports the spine better. That mattress is 9 months old now and to date yours is the one complaint so everybody likes different things. I apologise again it wasn't to your taste but everybody else has been fine or even complimentary.


We had a double bed room next to living room and kitchen and enjoyed the chats with the owner Matt, who provided us with recommendations about restaurants and other accommodations on our route (which was perfect for us). The next time we stay in Oudtshoorn, will be definitely this place again.


Full ashtrays laying around and outside bin overflowing. Staff seamed lazy with regard to doing anything but did try and help you where they could. Padlocked gate to get in so a reasonably safe car park but no lockers in the dorms. Kitchen had good facilities (inc oven) and was clean, just need to tighten their saucepan handles!
