Excellent service and familiar atmosphere in a modern facility. Very good basis for visiting the Karoo with its ostrich farms, private game reserves and the Swartberg Pass as a must. The facility has tidy rooms with air condition, unfortunately in our room the double bed was quite small, but we would definitely recommend this place.

We enjoyed our stay at the Karoo Sun Guesthouse very much. The house is beautiful, with a nice garden and clean swimming pool. Hermien and Reynhardt did everything to ensure that we had a very very nice two days stay. The perfect place to visit the attractions in the area, like the caves and/or ostrich farms.

We had a very nice stay in Karoo Sun Guesthouse. The people are SUPER friendly, always a smile and good tips for trips in the neighbourhood. If you want, they make a reservation in the restaurant. Very good breakfast with fresh fruit, toast, meat...

Everything about this guesthouse was great. Beautiful rooms and very comfortable beds. The hosts were friendly and helpful. A perfect place to stay in Oudtshoorn. Easy to locate as it is opposite the hospital. There was a shuttle service to a couple of restaurants or they would deliver a take away.

This was a beautiful and welcoming guesthouse. Honestly they have the most comfortable beds in South Africa!! Swimming pool was lovely. It is well situated in the town with just a short walk to town centre. We could have stayed longer if we had the time. I would have loved if all guest houses were like this one. Thank you... More

Lovely house with lovely rooms. The rooms were spotless with lovely showers and lots of hot water. The gardens were well kept with a pool and a few fruit trees. The property is very central in Oudtshoorn and has menus from nearby restaurants that they recommend. The ones we tried were excellent and had a shuttle bus to drop you... More
