    Great for families and great food

    We stayed in the tented accommodation, very comfortable and modern. The food was out of this world and the staff are so friendly. Definitely will go back again. Also great location to the Cango Caves.

    Our stay at Old Mill

    This is a great value place to stay. It is slightly out of Oudtshoorn but on the way to Cango Caves and Swartberg Pass. Our room was very nice being a cabin overlooking the small dam. Breakfast was great with several traditional SA foods available, which made it more interesting.

    This was very basic but its location explains part of its lack of modern conveniences. However, they should get a decent wifi (the reception was awful and I don’t they should claim to be able offer it). The beds were not the best either.

    Ruhige Lodge ausserhalb von Oudtshoorn

    Sehr netter Empfang und freundliches Personal. Die gebuchte Unterkunft (Waterfront Cottage 1 honeymoon bath) am Wasser ist mittlerweile alt und nicht mehr auf dem neusten Niveau. Eine Duschw fehlt leider, es gibt nur eine Badewanne. Die Betten sind klein und die Matratze doch schon ziemlich durchgelegen. Die Lodge legit etwas abseits der Strasse und ist daher sehr ruhig. Gutes Frühstück und ein gutes Abendessen im Restaurant der Lodge rundeten unseren Aufenthalt ab.
