We had a lovely stay at De Akker Guesthouse! If we were back in Oudtshoorn, we would definitely stay again. The breakfast is so good! The guesthouse is right in town so you can walk to dinner. In fact, there was a delicious restaurant, Nostalgie, right around the corner that our host at the guesthouse recommended. She also helped us with recommendations around town. Very helpful!

Solid option for Oudtshoorn
We had a very pleasant stay at De Akker. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast options were great as well. Parking is pretty straight forward. You're given a fob fob for the gate, and you just let yourself in and out as you please. The only negatives I can think of is the size of the room, and it's proximity to others. It's not that the walls were necessarily thin, it's just that the rooms all share one very small corridor. So if you even opened your door a crack, you could hear your neighbor pretty plainly. But other than that, it's a great place to stay in Oudtschoorn. It's a 300 m walk to downtown and right in the center.

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!

One of the best!!!
What a wonderful place!! Feels like home - attention to detail, cannot think of anything to improve!! Quality bedding, personal touch through out the guesthouse is amazing...from the rooms to the breakfast. We stayed in a 3 bedroom (2 adults and my 10 year old son). There was enough space and the location is very good. Will definately stay here again!

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.
