On our way to Cape Town we stopped off to go to the ostricht farm and stayed over night at the Queens Hotel.It was like going back into the past (King George stayed here with his wife Queen Elizabeth and daughters Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret in the 1940's). A very nice place although the bedroom and bathroom were small. The...

This was our 2nd stop on the Garden Route, the hotel was easy to find and reception gave us a nice warm welcome, car parking is at the back of the hotel. The room was ok, bit on the small side, the bathroom had been updated, however, could do with some more improvements, Shower shelf a little to high, and...

Vivienne, Thank you for your feedback. The bathrooms have just been upgraded and finer details such as the shelves are being attended to. There is a space in the shelf below the hand basin for the toiletries.

This is a lovely little town and the hotel was quite charming. It was very quiet with great air conditioning which led to a good nights sleep! The dinner buffet was quite sparse though; certainly nothing to get excited about.

Carol, Thank you for your review. I am glad that you enjoyed your hotel. You should have ask for more food at the dinner buffet if it was getting sparse. I will talk to my chef.

A good base for staying in Oudtshoorn. Room whilst not overly large was comfortable and the shower was exceptionally good. Pleasant public rooms , helpful staff and nice terrace overlooking main road. Pool had seen better days but acceptable. Plenty of restaurants within a stone's throw.

We had lunch twice in the cafe. The food appears to be made fresh each day. there is nothing particularly fancy about the surroundings but the food is of good quality and very reasonably priced for what you get. the fact that many locals eat here is a plus

I have not been back to Oudtshoorn since my officer training days in 1981. Travelling back to Cape Town we decided to stay over. Glad we did - it was a super stay in a colonial style hotel. The room was clean and the beds just right for a good night's sleep. The restaurant proved to be a gem as...

My wife and I were there for the Meiringspoort Half Marathon. Comfortable, clean, pleasant stay all round. Within easy strolling distance of an unexpectedly varied supply of nearby eateries. Lovely in-house restaurant. Design of the shower cubicle needs some attention as it lets floods of water out onto the floor. Could do with a shelf somewhere to place toiletries.

My daughter referred me to this venue. Although it was a quiet weekday the food and services was excellent I had lovely lunch and cappuccino. Situated in main road near Museum it was still quiet and we had a peaceful well presented lunch.

We stayed at the hotel over a weekend. From check in to the resturant to the bathrooms....all were exceptional. Truly worth it. I would recommend this hotel and especially their in house resturant to any traveller. Their menu boasts with true local flavour-the best ostrich carpaccio and simple classics done to perfection.
