We stayed at Mooiplaas for 1 amazing night. The staff are professional and very helpful. Rooms are clean and very spacious. The bathroom facilities and bed were great. Sunset and sunrise views from the farm were incredible, definitely worth the distance from the town centre. I would love to stay here again.

Came here on the off chance about 5 years ago, and the experience never left us. Andre the manager is a total raconteur and wasted as a manager really, but 5 years in he's still there and still keeping the banter fresh, still totally fabulous, yes still!!! The rooms are decorated indigenous to the area with ostrich headboards and African...

Just spent two nights here as part of a garden route tour. Fantastic welcome from Andre who ensured we had a wonderful stay. Large rooms with separate sitting area with all amenities. Verandah where you sit and watch the ostriches with their recently born babies. Wide choice at breakfast and whilst a limited choice at dinner there is enough variety...

Greetings! Thank you so much for your kind words regarding your stay at Mooiplaas! Yes, the baby chicks are so cute, but also so naughty! They keep on wandering around on the grass and as soon as one comes near, they run back to their parents! We hope that you will find time in the future to visit us again!...

We were 7 people staying at Mooiplaas and we have enjoyed our stay to the fullest. The manager Andre was amazing and funny! He helped us to find things to do in Oudtshoorn like the ostrich farm tour at Highgate and stargazing at the guesthouse it self. Food was very high quality --> breakfast and dinner!

After a hot dusty day in the Klein Karoo, Mooiplaas Guest House was like an oasis in the desert. The rooms were very large and cool and had all the amenities one would expect of a very good four star Guest House. The gardens were green and the swimming pool was very welcome. The restaurant served an excellent meal with...
