Hosts were very friendly and helpful, providing us with maps and all the information we would need not to miss out on the many attractions in the area. Rooms were clean and very comfortable and we would highly recommend the Karoo Sun as the place to stay in that area.

Room seems to be very good in pictures but rooms are very old. The wooden floor is noisy. Do not have attached bathrooms and toilet and even lights were not working in the bathrooms. Kitchen is very small.. Not suitable for a family trip.

We arrived late Saturday evening and were shown around the site on arrival. The bedroom was large and modern. The garden had a very rustic feel with hammocks, lounge area and a small pool. Kitchen facilities and free Tea and coffee. The only negative comment I have is the dog poop on the grass by the pool which was a...

Very comfortable place in the middle of Oustshoorn. Prices reasonable, nice pool area with a really relaxed and chilled vibe. The cottage is nice, even though a little bit more light would have been welcome. Breakfast is light and simple but precisely how we like it, and can be made available early in the day (6am). Nice advice from owner...

We stayed at this backpackers hotel. The rooms there are nice and convenient. There are 3 bathrooms and toilets which are all clean. A kitchen is available for cooking. You can have your clothes cleaned there at a reasonable price

We had a twin room for R 520,-, which was even discounted. Too small!! We had to put the cloth rack outside to put our bags at the floor. Too narrow to go to the bathroom. fridge makes a lot of noice. difficult to ventilate.

Dear Sir, All opinions are welcomed. Yours didn't surprise us, as we did not expect to satisfy you. In our correspondence even before your arrival, you changed the number of rooms, argued about prices and changed your date. We informed you that we'll have to separate a queen sized bed for you in order to have singles. You have indeed...

We recently stayed in the Family Unit/cottage. Extremely small room. I would not recommend this for a family. Counter top table kept upright with burnt wooden log and bricks. Noises of other guests late at night and early morning were very disturbing. Rats crawling around in the ceiling. I hardly slept. Definitely not worth the amount of money we paid.

So sorry to hear about your tough experience! About the 'rats', I can put your mind at ease: We have a shading cloth stretched over the roof of the unit, to make it somewhat cooler. A securing string became undone and caused for the flapping sound and caused for twigs to be blown about a narrow space. The burnt wooden...
