It was ok to stay at Oasis Shanti. The outside of the house and the garden with swimming pool is nice but the rooms are very simple and basic. The dorms felt like a barrack from the war and the 'family room' (with three beds) was also very simple. The shared kitchen is very comfortable and the douches are good!

I really enjoyed the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff. Oshanti is like camping in your own back yard. Everything is there and neat. It is peacefully far from the center of town yet close enough to pop into your regular stores for something quickly. I will definitely make it my permanent port of call when I am in the...

Very nice, location but feel like they lost the passion for the property. Many broken bits, not that tidy or well maintained. Rooms were huge and the kitchen adequate! The manageress was informative but bit reserved for a backpackers!

We stay one night and the stuff was really helpful with everything. They received us with maps of all the places we wanted to visit and it was a really cool stay. The place is okay for a short time staying. We stay in the family room and we have a really great time.

We really enjoyed staying here there was a lovely braai and pool area which really helped with the heat and the house was nice and big and the service was great and we got to meet a lot of foreigners which is always exciting to talk to them and learn about their country

I booked online with the greatest of ease. Confirmation received immediately. I made changes to my return journey without any hassles or additional cost. I had a problem trying to find kennel facilities on a Sunday in Oudsthoorn however the staff at Oasis Shanti were extremely accomodating and allowed me to have my 2 dogs in my room with me....

WE had a nice time. Our own chalet next to the pool. Quite close to the centre of Oudtshoorn if you want to walk. We have used this place a few times going from Cape-town to Port Elizabeth, and is well worth the money.

“The family room was huge and had a lot of beds in it so the four of us were quite happy sharing it for a night.”

“Rooms by the pool may be a little noisier because of the bar, pool and braii area being used next to them.”
