Best Little Guesthouse Oudtshoorn

Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

Oudshoorn was founded in the late 1850s, famous for those big flightless birds we call ostriches. It's the ideal stop between Outeniqua and the Swartberg Mountains on Route 62. This charming hub has pretty much everything you need - exploration and relaxation.

At Best Little Guest House, the rooms are basic but cosy. No wild décor, lavish entrances or instragram-able moments, but it does the trick if you have been on the road all day and you're looking for a comfortable place to rest your head. With the necessities you would expect of a modern-day guesthouse: good shower, comfortable bed, climate control, TV and wi-fi. You also get the perks of a garden, a braai (barbeque) and a swimming pool right outside your room.

In the morning you can have an optional breakfast in-house or go across the road and visit the Smitswinkel Country Kitchen (considering Oudtshoorn is small you might as well see and try everything).

Laze your days away or head out to discover what the little Karoo has to offer you. You are only 9km from the nearest ostrich farm, the Cango Caves (a must) is 32km away and the Swartberg Nature Reserve a mere 42km. If you have more time, just ask Edy and Rina, your hosts, for some suggestions.

On your way back from the Cango Caves, remember to ask the locals where the hidden waterfall is. While it might be a bit of a walk (10 minutes realistically), you won’t be disappointed.

As you might have gathered, Best Little Guesthouse likes to keep it simple and easy for you to stay put or head off to learn about the history. It’s probably the most hassle-free stop on your road trip so don’t overlook it too quickly, it might just be your favourite part.
