Fantastic place to stay. Staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful. They gave us discount vouchers for local tourist things to do, a map with where everything is and advised on activities. Our room was lovely and breakfast each morning was great. Absolutely chuffed that De Akker even offered a washing service, which we needed after a while on the road. They washed, dried and even packed away our clothes. Thanks so much for a fabulous stay!

One of the best!!!

What a wonderful place!! Feels like home - attention to detail, cannot think of anything to improve!! Quality bedding, personal touch through out the guesthouse is amazing...from the rooms to the breakfast. We stayed in a 3 bedroom (2 adults and my 10 year old son). There was enough space and the location is very good. Will definately stay here again!

We stayed at De Akker Guesthouse when visiting the Cango Caves and Ostrich Farm. The property is conveniently located in Oudtshoorn town centre and within walking distance to restaurants and shops. It is clean and has everything you need. Highly recommended and great value.
