We slept very well inspite of the heath. This was because of the good air-conditioned room. Breakfast was very pleasant.

Fantastic place to stay. Great location within moments of two excellent restaurants (Jemima's and Kalinka's); the owners are extremely hospitable; clean, modern room at very reasonable rates.

Gumtree Guest House is one of the finest in Oudtshoorn, overlooking the Grobbelaars River and the historic Suspension Bridge. This guest house offers luxury and charm, in the shade of a century old giant gumtree.
Close to town but with a beautiful view,
A touch of the old adds elegance to the new. Let The Barons Palace Hotel, with its majestic staircase, large airy rooms and huge log fires in winter, transport you back to an era of grace and elegance.

This charming Victorian home was built in 1853 and declared a National Monument in 1988. It captures all the character and heritage of a bygone era. Oakdene is situated on the main tourist route and walking distance from the town centre.
After 19 years, this well organised, family run, friendly hostel still offers great value and fantastic service from its hands on owners who will happily share the secrets of the Little Karoo with you.
