We experienced a warm welcome by the host, his wife and their friendly staff. The rooms are luxurious and fully equipped to fulfil all your needs for a carefree self catering stay. Each unit has it's own boma with braai facilities in the heart of the famous Swartberg Mountain range. If you are too relaxed to prepare your own meal,... More

Very neat and tidy rooms set in tranquil Karoo nature. The owners Paul and Elna is warm and great hosts. The sparkling pool is great for cooling down on a warm Karoo day. Good Wi fi connections available makes it wonderful to plan the rest of your trip. Breakfast baskets is a great idea.

I recently stayed at De Poort for a family visit. The facilities are very neat - we had everything we needed and were warmly received by the owners Paul and Elna.

As we were cycling the Swartberg pass early the following morning we requested a picnic breakfast to be prepared. We were pleasantly surprised when we opened the cooler bag. Jeanette and family had prepared the most amazing breakfast. Muesli, yoghurt,... More

We spent a night here as part of a tour along the garden route. The rooms were very smart, clean and tidy, and Jeanette made us very welcome at breakfast where a great spread was laid out. We're quite critical as a family when it comes to hotels, B&Bs, lodges etc, but we wouldn't hesitate recommending it as a place... More

Jeanette made our stay memorable and even catered for our halaal needs. Close to all activities in Oudtshoorn.(Cango Caves, Wilgewandel, Buffelsdrift, Ostrich farm, Cango Wildlife Ranch) A wonderful place tucked away in the mountains. A definite must to stay when visiting Oudtshoorn.
