We absolutely loved our one night stay. Staff were wonderful and the rooms were faultless. Very central to Cango Caves and Ostrich farms. Great on site restaurant, and the food was excellent! From booking to check out, very happy! Jessica in particular was amazing. Would highly recommend.

We stayed 2 nights here while visiting Oudtshoorn. We enjoyed the traditional hut room. It was spacious. We enjoyed lying on the lawn and looking at the starts. Waking up to the birds chirping in the morning was a magical experience. They have some equipment for kids too.

Not sure how this hotel got a rating of 3. This is not normal Protea standards at all. Building and finishing - very old not modern at all. Burglar bars on window. . Not even Protea Breakwater which was a prison venue had that. Restaurant - average. Chops was good. Service by staff very good and accommodating to our requests....

Quant little hotel, easy to find. Parking under shade netting. Room clean and tidy, bed comfortable. Large flat screen tv with DSTV. Free wifi however I battled to connect saying incorrect password continuously so I eventually gave up. Extra plug next to bed which is very helpful when charging laptop while working. One thing I did miss is fridge, especially...

Our tour group of 30 people stayed here for one night. The hotel is made up of 16 rondavel round chalets and some terraced cottages. People in the rondavels enjoyed their stay, those in the chalets less so. I was in chalet 17 and it was rustic to say the least. Bathroom was tiny and desperately in need of an...

It might seem like it is in the middle of nowhere and a long way from town (it is), but the property is quaint, delightful and spending the night in a typical African rondele with a pointed thatch roof, is certainly a treat. Basic accommodations and only a few rooms available. Excellent breakfast buffet and the BBQ dinners out by...

The staff was friendly and the hut itself was quaint, but there was no heat in our room which left it ridiculously cold. It was so uncomfortably freezing in our room that we only spent time there when it was absolutely necessary. Also, the wifi connection in the room was very poor and led to difficulty doing research on things...

I recently stayed over in Oudtshoorn on business. The hotel is not very big but comfortable. It is located in the main road and that makes it easy to find with easy access to local shops when needed. The grounds are very well maintained and you can take a lovely walk about. Brenda Corke Department of Basic Education
