The Opstal is 14 km from Oudtshoorn but you do not have a view and it has a holiday park feeling next to abbusy road. It feels like it has seen better days. Food is fine but you are not allowed to sit outside. This because of the flies which we did not see. And nowhere else we stayed or...

We stayed for two nights in October. The staff were very friendly and the hotel was very easy to find albeit in quite a remote location. Breakfast was lovely. Dinner in the restaurant was a traditional buffet style affair which was good food but perhaps a little expensive compared to other restaurants we ate at during our trip. The room...

We stayed in Room 4 for one night only at De Opstal in Oudtshoorn and it was lovely. It's an oasis in the semi desert. The accommodation has about 20 rooms but not even half were filled when we stayed. The checkin was easy and were greeted when we parked and a porter took our bags to the room. The...

Charmingly restored and decorated old farm buildings surrounded by a garden. Spacious room with a metal fireplace, piano and books in the corridor. Coffee making facilities in the small shady patio. Huge bathroom with shower, jacuzzi, bathrobes and separate toilet. In some of the rooms the safety box didn't work, neither wi-fi. Nice buffet breakfast and dinner in the restaurant...

We spent one night here en route to Cape Town from Port Elizabeth. The welcome was warm. The furnishing was authentic and certainly not standard hotel stuff: it is a family-run concern. The extensive gardens and the pool were attractive. The food was home-cooked and excellent in quality and choice. On such a journey as ours it was ideal for...

We stayed here for one night specifically to see the ostriches. We drove from Wilderness, so a short drive through the mountains on a very quiet Sunday morning. De Opstal is out of the town towards the caves. It is on a very quiet road. There was a friendly greeting when we arrived. We were early for check in, but...

This converted farm is a bit country style, dark furniture, plastic armchairs,but a spacious room with all normal facilities. The restaurant was closed the first night but a mini bus from a restaurant took us and brought as back so we did not have to drive. The breakfast was good and service willing. The dinner we had was a buffet...

Country Lodge is located between town and Cango Cave. Quiet place to stop. Nice garden. Rooms are spacious. Furniture seems to be antique and fits nicely with the character of old farm house. Tea and coffee station in room. Fridge, safe, hair dryer and free wifi. Restaurant on site. Food is good, service average but very friendly. Staff needs to...

First impressions are charming, white washed buildings in pretty gardens. We had a nice sized room with all amenities, a large bathroom and a big balcony overlooking the garden. Good air con, hot water, tea and coffee. Dinner and breakfast was limited choice but nice quality. (Mussel soup delicious) The staff were helpful and nice but it felt as though...

Nicely located in an old farmstead. Had a large suite comprising bedroom, hallway with desk, bathroom with walk-in shower and separate WC/washroom. Very comfortable bed but some maintenance issues. Meals were buffet style with a limited choice – tasty but not haute cuisine. Useful place for an overnight stay with our tour group but there are probably better options in...
