We only stayed only one night but is was pure luxury, Wim and Margot could not have made us more welcome and done more for us. The quality of the property and cleanliness is second to none. I think there are only three rooms available so it is all very private and they have a lovely pool available. What I...

If you are looking for a spotlessly clean B&B with gracious hosts look no further. Wim and Margot were kind and helpful and have put an incredible amount of work into making this one of the top guesthouses in Oudtshoorn. They also made reservations for us at local attractions and restaurants according to our schedule.

Such a wonderful experience. We had a great room over looking the mountains with our own balcony. The breakfasts are superb and you are made to feel so welcomed by the hosts. I'd certainly consider a return visit despite the cost.

Stylish boutique guest house with lots of pictures - hence the name! Hosted by the lovely Wim and Margot - excellent and thoughtful hosts who helped with dinner and activity bookings. Breakfast was delicious and our room was huge!

This guest house is really faultless! Exceptionally neat and modern with every convenience thought of! Our deluxe room was extremely spacious with a huge balcony looking on to the pool. The hosts prepared a first class breakfast better than any 5 star establishment I have ever been to. All the bread is home made. The beds are VERY comfortable and...

We stayed with Wim, Margot and Reuben (the dog) for a few nights and couldn't have had a better time. The hospitality provided, along with a great breakfast and beautiful setting in this wonderful boutique hotel made our time truly enjoyable. Oudtshoorn is a great little town and has some very enjoyable restaurants (such as Bello Cibo and Jermimas). Top...

Everything was better than we had expected. The attention to detail from the welcome to leaving was perfect. Our room (deluxe) was very well appointed with an extremely comfortable bed. Breakfast with masterchef Margot was foodie heaven.
