What a shame that we only stayed for one night! The great experience already began weeks before we arrived when Zoe helped us to book the Meerkat Adventure Tour. Lots of emails back and forwards. When we finally arrived after a long day we were warmly welcomed by Hugh and Zoe. We chatted for quite some time and Zoe told...

Huw and Cloe greet and treat you like house guests rather than simple B&B punters. Seemed genuinely interested and happy to chat with us. Huw gave us some good tips for sightseeing/activities, as well as complimentary beer! There is more to do in and around Oudtshoorn than we had realised (had only chosen it as a halfway point overnight stop...

We stayed here for 2 night in October 2011 while passing through on the way to Knysna. The guest house is perfectly located to walk to other local restaurants and cafes, the rooms were clean and comfortable, breakfast was great and the owners Zoe and Hugh really helpful to and interested in their guests. I can definitely recommend it to...

I have never stayed in a B&B before and I'm sad we stayed here first as I am sure it'll never be better. I cannot understand how Zoe and Hue have such enthusiasm for each and every one of their guests, but they felt like friends even though we stayed just one night! We drove up the road to 88,...

Huw and Zoe's enthusiasm for being first rate hosts is tangible. On a very hot day, the welcome drink - an ice-cold beer - was perfect, as was the way Huw & Zoe explained how things worked and what to do to get the best out of even a short stay in the area. We had an unexpectedly special evening,...

Stayed for 2 nights in Oudtshoorn at this very nice B&B. Very good location with nice restaurants within walking distance. Lovely rooms, each with a veranda. My only disappointment was the lack of a garden. Very helpful hosts.

Huw and Zoe are just a shire delight and we left feeling like we had made two new friends. The place is exquiste and Huw and Zoes attention to detail was immense.

We visited Huw and Zoe's B&B this month while we were visiting South Africa and had a lovely two nights there. Zoe's attention to detail, both her and Huw's concern for the comforts of their guests, and their warm hospitality made our visit a memorable one. They not only provide a a refrigerator and air conditioner for their guests, but...

88bvr probably gave us the best welcome as hosts through our entire South African trip. The hosts are very friendly, knowledgable and provide lots of useful information. This makes a real difference. I wouldn't say the accommodation was anything to write home about, yet nicely decorated, clean and very good value for many. Great breakfasts too. I would stay here...
