Stayed there for two nights. The service was very welcoming and caring, one of the advantages of a small place. The rooms differ from each other, but all of them are very comfortable, clean and beautiful (we hired 3 different rooms). Laundry is free, and the included breakfast is great. We will most definitely come back.

WOW! I absolutely love everything about Monte Cristo. I have stayed here three times and I have NEVER been disappointed. Aunty Ravana (the hostess/ owner) is a generous and pleasant lady who takes care of her guests. She always goes that extra mile. Rooms are spacious, TVs are well located within the rooms and each bed has an electric blanket...

The bed was most comfortable and the linen of the highest quality. Nice swimming pool too, but too cold at this time of the year to...

We stayed at Monte Cristo for one night only as we were travelling around South Africa and more’s the pity. The lady who owns the place and her team couldn’t have done more for us. We relaxed around the pool on arrival after travelling from Knysna and they brought us nibbles and drinks. We were a party of six: two...

We stayed at Monte Cristo for 2 nights. The rooms are excellent. The hotel has around 8 rooms and all rooms are designed differently. The rooms are clean and very modern. The bathrooms are huge. But the best part are the hosts who make your stay so much comfortable. The options of breakfast are limited but the hosts were kind...

as a frequent visitor to the Karoo, i was rather disappointed by this stay in Oudtshoorn. the guest house is in a quiet, leafy area with great views out to the mountains. the service was very attentive, but more so than required in our case, it was at times a little difficult to enjoy the tranquil setting, for the solicitous...

After paying in full for Oude Maul and then walking out (it was awful) I then searched 5 other guest houses and B & B's and was disapointed in them all. We then came accross this place which is a hidden gem. Fantastic clean and modern rooms, great personal service that really makes you feel welcome and want to write...
