    Had many laughs during our stay. Room and service is good. Only drawback is , that noisy tail pipes seem to be the current car fashion in Oudtshoorn, which woke us up several times

    Some of the rooms are on the road and although it didn’t bother me, if you are a light sleeper you might want a room facing the garden.

    Nothing is too much trouble for Corlu, the Manager. Really helpful and friendly. Can’t thank him enough for his help. The guesthouse itself meticulously clean. The bed was comfy with nice linen and the breakfast very comprehensive and tasty. Parking is secure at the rear and although we didn’t try it, there is a clean and well maintained pool. It’s the nicest spot we’ve stayed in in Oudtshoorn.

    A great establishment with a wonderful team trying to meet every need! I will certainly reccomend it and will go back if I visit Oudshoorn again. Great value for money.

    Some rooms are closer to the street and might be a bit noisy. However, we got a room rather at the backside which was perfectly fine for us.

    Spacious rooms, lovely breakfast, friendly staff and a fantastic host. Garden area and pool are great as well!!

    We were a bit disappointed with this bnb. We had such great BnBs during our stay (same price) which added lovely touches that Oakdene didn't have. Things like home made rusks in the room. The breakfast wasn't great compared to others. Laundry was very pricey (other BnBs did this free of charge!). The room was also noisy during the day as it was close to the office. Hopefully the new owners will improve things as it has a lot of potential.

    The location was very good. Beautiful garden with bird life and pool area. Bed was very comfy - nice and firm! Very spacious room.

    The wifi worked bad indoors but good in the garden. Disturbing traffic during the nights and early mornings.

    Nice pool in the garden with interesting art.

    Our room was next to the street and you could hear the cars quite loud even during the night.

    Everything was clean, comfortable beds, good breakfast

    One of our friends is wary of dogs and there was a large though friendly dog at large.

    The gardens were pleasant and the accommodation was easy to locate.
