88bvr probably gave us the best welcome as hosts through our entire South African trip. The hosts are very friendly, knowledgable and provide lots of useful information. This makes a real difference. I wouldn't say the accommodation was anything to write home about, yet nicely decorated, clean and very good value for many. Great breakfasts too. I would stay here...

We weren't sure about Oudtshoorn but the ostrich farms and meerkats made us come. The highlght though was the drive up through Swartberg Pass and back past the drifs. We stopped at the waterfall and took a leap off the cliff. Huw and Zoegave us all the information we needed. The rooms were comfy and clean and had the nicest...

We stayed at many fantastic places during our trip to South Africa and met many friendly people but without doubt Huw and Zoë were the friendliest people that we met, we were really made to feel at home here within minutes of our arrival.

Our stay at 88 Baron Van Reede Guesthouse in late July last year was one of the highlights of our 5 week stay in South Africa. This was the perfect base to explore the beautiful surrounding areas of Oudtshoorn.

88 Baron van Reede Guesthouse exceeded my expectations by far. Zoe and Hugh were wonderful hosts, entertaining us with interesting conversation and giving excellent suggestions for sightseeing and eating out. I couldn't have hoped for a better stay in Oudtshoorn and would definitely recommend it to friends. Hugh cooked breakfast himself, which, together with Zoe's fruit salad, was a plus...

I can't say enough about this B&B. It was the best accommodation we stayed in during our trip to South Africa and one of the finest B&B's I've ever had the pleasure of staying in ever, particularly given how incredibly inexpensive it is. Strengths: 1) Character and decor: the B&B is located in an older building with tons of charm....
