I booked online with the greatest of ease. Confirmation received immediately. I made changes to my return journey without any hassles or additional cost. I had a problem trying to find kennel facilities on a Sunday in Oudsthoorn however the staff at Oasis Shanti were extremely accomodating and allowed me to have my 2 dogs in my room with me.... More

Friendly, warm & cozy...close to Town(shops) & secure. Couldn't explore the property & entertainment because of the cold & rainy weather...but overall it was nice. Friendly, warm & cozy...close to Town(shops) & secure.

WE had a nice time. Our own chalet next to the pool. Quite close to the centre of Oudtshoorn if you want to walk. We have used this place a few times going from Cape-town to Port Elizabeth, and is well worth the money.

The only thing not so great was the fear of criminality in the city of Oudtshoorn...we did not feel safe enough there but that's not the fault of the place. A very good thing was the electronic blankets!

Very helpful staff with swimming pool, fully equipped kitchen, living room, dining room and bathrooms. This is not a bohemian pad, but an efficient super-affordable place to camp or stay if you have business in town or are passing through. Excellent security - they were very quick to arrest a suspect person loitering in the street during the annual arts... More

You feel more then welcome. It's a proper and clean place. A peaceful and safe area. The breakfast is at another place.. basic but okay. The Hostess is doing her best to make you feel comfortable. Absolutely recommended!

Excellent service from management. Bungalow standard but worth the daily rate. Did not expect much but the friendliness and service made up for a five star accomidation. Will be on my list of accomidation to visit again.

Caro (hopefully I have spelt that correctly) was really a lovely, welcoming and extremely helpful lady who made us feel at home immediately and who really appeared to care about us enjoying our stay by giving us great advice and tips for the local area. She was also aware I was not feeling well during our stay and couldn't do... More
