I grew up in the Karoo and might be a little bit biased. Love your cacti garden and thank you for 5 Liters of drinking water...... much appreciated.Lots to see and do in the surrounds if you love the out doors.

Thank you for the kind review. Since the flood our water problem has not been resolved completely, but the Municipality is getting us back to normal determinedly.

Felt very welcome from the moment we arrived, very impressed with the hospitality (sherry on arrival) and fresh flowers in the rooms. Lovely well maintained swimming pool with beautiful surroundings. Lovely braai areas. We spent a very happy time at De Poort.

Neat, clean unit, with a very comfortable bed. We stayed for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. It was so peaceful sitting on the little balcony of our unit drinking coffee, enjoying the fresh air. We'll definitely be staying here again next time we're in Oudtshoorn.

It was a very enjoyable experience and we shall surely return in the future. Paul and Elna are caring and friendly hosts who go out of their way to look after your needs and make you feel at home.

We loved the place and the host family were very friendly and forthcoming. It was very cold in the room after the sun set but thanks to the warm quilts we could fall asleep.. if not for the cold temperature it was absolutely excellent and i would certainly get back to De Poort again and also strongly recommend it further

We stayed for two nights during the Oudtshoorn festival. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer! It is a family run business and the attention to detail is seriously world-class. The hosts are the most delightful family you will ever meet and absolutely nothing is too much trouble. We stayed in the two bedroom cottage which had loads...

Ultimately what makes or breaks a destination is the quality of the people that own it and operate it and here at De Poort you will find warm, fun and caring hosts that will make you feel right at home. We booked for 3 days and extended our stay for a further 3 days just because we felt so comfortable...
