Fantastic place to stay. Staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful. They gave us discount vouchers for local tourist things to do, a map with where everything is and advised on activities. Our room was lovely and breakfast each morning was great. Absolutely chuffed that De Akker even offered a washing service, which we needed after a while on the road. They washed, dried and even packed away our clothes. Thanks so much for a fabulous stay!

We stayed at De Akker Guesthouse when visiting the Cango Caves and Ostrich Farm. The property is conveniently located in Oudtshoorn town centre and within walking distance to restaurants and shops. It is clean and has everything you need. Highly recommended and great value.

Wir (2 Erwachsene, 2 Kinder) haben hier eine Übernachtung genossen, um dann weiter in die Karoo zu fahren. Die Chefin des Hauses stand und mit Rat und Tat für die Planung dieses einen Tages zur Seite. Es gab von Ihr diverse Voucher für günstigere Eintritte und tolle Tipps wie z.B. zwei wundervolle Wasserfälle um Oudtshoorn. Die Unterkunft liegt super um seine Einkäufe aufzufüllen oder um abends essen zu gehen. Für die Nutzung des sehr kleinen Pools hatten wir leider keine Zeit! Wir kommen gerne wieder!

In einer kleinen Siedlung gelegen. Sehr schön Eingerichtet und nette Gastgeber. Frühstück kann man am Abend vorher auswählen was man möchte. Super. Hatten das Hotel gebucht weil es nach zur Erdmännchen Safari liegt welche unbedingt gemacht werden sollte. Würde ich beides sofort wieder so buchen.

Great cost x benefit
Very good stay with my family (4 people in total) although we spent only one day there. Linda was very helpful and attentive with us all the time. Location really close to downtown and safe. Room was clean and tidy, all worked perfectly. Nice breakfast. Would surely return.
