We honestly loved everything about our stay at Die Fonteine. Our host was most kind and guests are encouraged to try the home baked cake that is freely available. As it was a bit chilly in the evenings the rooms were equipped with heating blankets and hot water bottles. To ensure good dreams the rooms had a small carafe of plum liquor as well as tea and coffee facilities. Guests are welcomed by two adorable, well mannered dogs. Lots of things to do in the area and conveniently located to visit Cango Caves, the Swartberg pass and the Ostrich farm just a little further up the road.

There was nothing we didn't like but we arrived late and a light at the entrance from the road would improve visibility and enable travellers to find it easier in the dark. Also the inclusion of dressing gowns / robes in the room would be the icing on the cake and in our opinion move it from a 9.999 to a 10 for us.
Friendly welcome, comfortable rooms, lovely b reakfast room (cosy plus a view), exceptionally clean with added touches / attention to detail such as a chocolate & sherry on b edside table.

Die Fonteine is in a small town about 10mins drive from Oudtshoorn and is a beautiful place to relax. Nothing is too much trouble for the owner or her staff- in fact, when we asked if she had a hose we could rinse the dust of our car with, she directed one of the maids to wash the car for us- service with a smile. The rooms were beautifully decorated, secure and comfortable. Wifi was good- were able to Facetime family on it. Breakfast was great. We dined at Buffelsdrift Restaurant, only 5 mins drive from there- it overlooks a waterhole in which hippos reside and the food and service was superb, and prices very moderate- highly recommendable. We would highly recommend La Fonteine to stay at, but you would need a car to access it.

Unfortunately, the room had small flies in it, which we coped with. But in the morning, the fruit and cold meats were covered in the same midges. However, the freshly cooked breakfast was great.
Accommodation was great. Hosts lovely.

Very peaceful and relaxing. Anzue went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed - moved rooms to ensure wifi and tv. Breakfasts lovely and information given spot on.

Nothing to complain about. A nice stay.
Nice "homey" setting with wonderful and varied landscaping and great view of surrounding area. Like the sheep on the "farm" as well!

The wi fi was not the best but it did not matter too much to us. There was load shedding for about 2.5 hours (from 8 pm) but most guests book their dinner around that time - either in Oudtshoorn or the famous Buffelsdrift which is a short drive away. It was not a big problem since we planned to have an early night anyway but it may be an idea to warn the guests when they are checking in. Though power failures are commonplace all over South Africa.
This owner-managed B&B is an excellent retreat. Mid way between Oudtshoorn and the Cango Caves our only regret is that we spent only one night there. The room (we were in the Bougainville) was spacious and the bathroom (two sinks!) even more so. The B&B is in a quiet location away from the hustle and bustle of the city but easily accessible. They have a dam if you fancy a dip and adequate parking. Breakfast is served in the main house, which is very quaint and where the owners live. The food was great and the spread was brilliant. Certainly recommended!

Time here was too short as we were only booked in for two nights.
The host and hostess were both very very nice people. Really made us feel at home straight away. The room was beautifully presented and nothing was too much trouble. The hostess booked us into a wonderful restaurant for our evening meal which was in a fantastic location and the scenery and food made for a perfect end to a lovely day. Anybody staying at this stunning B&B will not be disappointed and is very good value for money.
