An old building tastefully modernised and well run by it's enthusiastic young owners. A warm welcome and a good breakfast - all at a very reasonable rate. As a visiting golfer from England, the Inn is ideally situated for golf at George Golf Club.

One of our stopovers during our eastern/Western cape road trip was Outeniqua Inn. Beautiful warm hosts and a lovely spacious apartment was all we needed to refresh us on our way to Cango caves the next day. Breakfast was simple but tasteful. The pool was clean and gardens were well manicured. parking was right next to our unit.

We made a reservation on the 13th of Jan for check in 14th of Jan but due to unforeseen circumstances we had to cancel. We spoke to the owners to cancel and they had said no problem when we made the cancellation. Today 16th of Jan we are being charged for the deposit which they didn't charged before we cancelled....

Lovely guest house, beautiful furnishings, delicious breakfasts. My GPS gave me some trouble in finding the place, but called Christo and he gave me excellent directions. The only thing they need is a light at the curb of the driveway.

I called Outeniqua Travel Lodge yesterday to enquire on the Backpacker option for a friend. Firstly the Owner informed me that he doesnt CATER FOR SOUTH AFRICANS! I asked why and his sarcastic response to this was: "SOUTH AFRICANS ARE NOT ON THE SAME LEVEL OF SOPHISTICATION AS THE EUROPEAN MARKET"!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ofcourse I am going to enquire on his thoughts...

Booked the accommodation based on the photos seen however we were only notified that they changed the premises after the booking and were somewhat disappointing. Rooms felt like your average university residence except that the bedding was better. The bathroom only had a bath and the handheld shower head was not fixed anywhere and the button to operate it had...

My daughter and I spent one night here. I can assure you this was the first time, and definitely the last! The TV was not working, and there was a lot of electric wires and extensions, which we first had to figure out what works where. The double bed linen was too small, and one duvet cover has a hole...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Outeniqua Travel Lodge is well-loved for it's affordable (never ‘cheap’!) accommodation. Clean, cosy and convivial it has become a well known meeting place for independent travellers from all over the world. The style is like ‘spotting your professor in his t-shirt’. You will encounter professionalism and taste where it matters, but in a very gentle and laid-back atmosphere.Be warned, they are unashamedly snobbish. They won't charge you a lot of money but will require a lot of attitude, values and intellect!Ignore the grumpy owner (who is capable of faking a friendly smile now and again) and rather mix with the adventurous young guests. ... more   less
