The staff at Yamkela was very accommodating and helpful. The room was comfortable and the breakfast in the morning was delicious. Everyone else in our tour stayed down the street at the backpackers hotel, and we were so glad to have stayed at the quaint guest house Yamkela.

Yamkela Guest House, is my number one priority of accommodation when I am in Oudtshoorn. Service is always excellent, not to talk about the breakfast. Yamkela is my home away from home. The location is close to all amenities.

Beautiful place and room. Very friendly and helpful people. Even a small thing, like when the passing out parade at the army woud take place was a priority to them. They made a special effort to find out and came and tell us. Breakfast was also lovely with a large variety to eat. Baie dankie! Thank you!

Yamkela is a great guest house. It is centrally located, has a great garden and breakfast area. The rooms are great and the bed is fantastic. I staid in a room opposite the swimming pool. The aircon in the room helps a lot on a hot Oudtshoorn day and so does the swimming pool.
