Very Good8.0
Lovely and homely place to stay in Oudtshoorn
The room was nice and comfortable and the location is convenient. We were only there for 1 night but we were made to feel welcome. There is no wifi in the rooms which you would expect nowadays and the bathroom was a big dark (only one spotlight) but otherwise I can't fault the place. Great breakfast too!

Good spot to stay for local sites
Had a short stay in Oudtshoorn and the Yamkela guesthouse was a great choice. The owners are very nice and offer a great range of options for breakfast (ostrich sausage!). The room was very large with a balcony and a set of table and chairs for each guest (it appeared every room has balcony access). The only reason I didn't give 5 stars on room comfort was that the room I was in had a slanted roof in the bathroom and no windows (although it did have solid blinds over the door, which provided air and light). And I gave 4 stars on neighborhood because there really isn't much around but I think that is more a product of the town than it is the hotel.

A must stay
Wow a very long road trip from Cape Town to Johannesburg and this was one of the only places available within our budget! I can say is one of the best guests houses ever, 5* service, 5* breakfast and the town is beautiful too. Couldn't have asked for more. This is a defiant must!!!
