We provide good value for money and have a selfcatering studio, family unit and a larger unit. Tranquil surroundings, but close to CBD. Warm hospitality.
Urban tranquility in the heart of George. The ideal location to explore the rest of the Garden Route. Oakhurst Hotel is stylish, deliberately small and exclusive suited to both leisure and business travelers alike.
