Our accommodation was superb - spacious, clean, quiet and very comfortable. I did not like the bland Ostrich steak that I had for dinner and the dessert that followed was just scoops of icecream with a few bits of fruit. The service at mealtimes was not good and the staff, although friendly, seem under-trained. However, the Ostrich tour after breakfast... More

Myself and my wife stayed for 2 nights on our Honeymoon in October 2016. It is a good place to use as a base to explore the surrounding area's. The town itself is about 5 miles away. The staff and food were good and the views of the mountains at sunset were very good.

This is a quirky place to stay but only for a few nights. The welcome is warm and the location peaceful. You are a few miles out of Oudtshoorn and therefore really have to eat at the hotel.

Dear friends Thank you so much for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay overall.

There is nothing fundamentally wrong with Mooiplaas but with just a few small changes it could be exceptional. The positives are the very friendly and helpful staff,the views, the big rooms with a big bathroom and a really good shower. The rooms are however a little dark and drab but for a couple of nights no big deal. The housekeeping... More

We were worried on the drive here as it was out in the middle of nowhere, we needn't have worried. It's a beautiful guesthouse in the hills of Oudsthoorn, surrounded by farms and Ostriches. We stayed one night so didn't venture out, the menu was average overall, but ostrich from the braai was excellent.
