It was a very enjoyable experience and we shall surely return in the future. Paul and Elna are caring and friendly hosts who go out of their way to look after your needs and make you feel at home. The setting of De Poort is lovely: secure, restful and beautiful and out of town- away from the city or town...

We loved the place and the host family were very friendly and forthcoming. It was very cold in the room after the sun set but thanks to the warm quilts we could fall asleep.. if not for the cold temperature it was absolutely excellent and i would certainly get back to De Poort again and also strongly recommend it further

Thank you for your recommendation. Our air conditioners are dual temperature and could be used to warm or cool the room. Looking forward to welcome you again.

We stayed for two nights during the Oudtshoorn festival. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer! It is a family run business and the attention to detail is seriously world-class. The hosts are the most delightful family you will ever meet and absolutely nothing is too much trouble. We stayed in the two bedroom cottage which had loads...

We had a very comfortable and pleasant stay at de Poort Country Lodge. Would definitely stay there again. Elna made us feel very welcome and the facilities and garden are lovely. The Old cottage is beautiful.

Ultimately what makes or breaks a destination is the quality of the people that own it and operate it and here at De Poort you will find warm, fun and caring hosts that will make you feel right at home. We booked for 3 days and extended our stay for a further 3 days just because we felt so comfortable...

Stayed at De Poort in April while visiting the KKNK in Oudtshoorn. The Karoo Huisie in which we stayed is an old cottage that has been renovated. The rooms are rather small - however well equipped. The owners were very welcoming and willing to assist wherever required.

Thank you for your kind review. I agree, the rooms in the Cottage are quite small. We would love to make it bigger, but the building is a 200 year old historical monument and therefor prohibited to change it. I think the big bathrooms and patio makes up for it :)

We enjoyed the stay,accomodation, surroundings & service. Was very nice and will definetely visit again. I think it is very good value for money and perfect for couples or small family groups. Location great, close to town and things to see and do.

Awesome owners!!! Extremely helpful with what to do and where to go in the area. Lovely clean rooms with everything you need. Very central place to stay on route to the Cango Caves and Wilgewandel which is a real treat for kids. We highly recommend this accommodation. Thank you for an unforgettable stay in Outshoorn!
