We came to visit family in Oudtshoorn, and stayed at the Rimpie hotel. What an charming hotel. The rooms are bungalows and chalets, but have all the essentials needed in a hotel room, such as air-con and Flat Screen Tv. It also have clean white bedding. The restaurant is also an extra bonus with their Roosterkoek Hamburgers. They also have...

If you need wifi in your room do not stay in this hotel. Be prepared that wifi will not be available in the room. Also very bad response in the lobby. The problem can be solved very easy by adding few cheap repeaters.

Beautiful location, excellent service, good food and friendly staff and management. Recently taken over and the new owners have great plans for an even better experience. All the rondawels are being upgraded. A must stay if you are looking for something authentic and South African in Oudtshoorn. This is true South African hospitality and atmosphere! Ronell Roome

We stayed at this hotel for one night and enjoyed our stay. The hotel has a pool, but the water is very cold and the facilities are limited. The room was very comfortable and set in a lovely garden location, with a lot of trees and varieties of birds in the grounds. The hotel is quite isolated but as a...

Stayed 1 night in a Standard King Chalet (albeit with twin beds) in October 2016. We stopped at Oudtshoorn after visiting Cango Caves and an ostrich farm, before proceeding along the Garden Route. The hotel is set on vast, tranquil grounds outside of town. Though short, the stay was nevertheless very close to being a disaster: • The person checking...

Stayed for two nights and it was a bit of a time warp. It seemed a hotel for the touring South Africans in days gone by. The rooms were small and rather dated and varied but they were clean. The rooms require modernisation and a complete revamp. The staff were friendly and efficient so that made up for the tired...
