Excellent must stay in Oudtshoorn. This was my second visit at De Opstal and it was even better than the first time! Friendly and professional staff. Luxurious farm setting with scenic and romantic garden landscape. De Opstal will definitely see me again!!

Not much in Oudsthoorn apart from the magnificent Route 62 jaw dropping scenic drive into it and ostriches but a nice place to stop over for a night. We did a hotel organised ostrich tour the morning of check out and it was very interesting and entertaining, a highlight. The hotel is old work luxury but very much 5 star....

Enjoyed my stay here, I found the accommodation unusual and quirky. The room was big but with many steps which would not be great for some guests. The evening meal and breakfast were average, typical SA menu. One minor problem for me, there was a wood burner in the room and there was a smell from the chimney which didn't...

Arrived after a long drive to this beautiful estate of guest cottages converted from farm buildings set in stunning, fantastically maintained gardens with a lovely pool equipped with sunbeds. An evening meal was available on the first night we were there. This was buffet style giving us the opportunity to try some traditional home cooked South Africa dishes. It was...

We stayed at this lovely lodge for the second time recently which probably tells you all you need to know. You can expect a real home from home....rooms are in little cottages spread around a truly delightful garden with brilliant white daisies in abundance and pomegranate trees outside the room As detailed elsewhere the food is wonderful Don't miss it!

We drive into this place from the main road unsure of what we would find and were directed through beautiful gardens, blooming with daisies, to our own little white stone cottage with white corrugated iron roof (insulated from the sun) with stable door and veranda. They only do evening meals on weekdays so we were fortunate to arrive on Friday....
