This has been our 5th stay at De Opstal and we wouldn't stay anywhere else in Oudtshoorn. We are always made so welcome by Matilda, Albertus and all the staff, it is like coming home! Rooms and bathrooms are spacious with wonderful furnished stoeps. The gardens and pool area are delightful. A lovely place to stay in a beautiful valley.

We had a huge room here with a massive open fire that we lit and enjoyed from a big comfortable sofa. It was very romantic! We had a big double bed, the area was very quiet and sleep quality was excellent. Everything worked in our room and the wifi was fast and free. There was a porch with rocking chairs...

We stopped here for one night as we traveled up the Garden Route. Lovely grounds, great staff. Great wine selection and the food was excellent! The ostrich pate is to die for! Wish we had more time here. I recommend this little farm style lodge to relax in the garden and enjoy a glass of wine. The staff was extremely...

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....
