the place is excellent and the henk botha and his wife go out their way to make your stay an excellent one
Eine in jeder Hinsicht vorbildliche Unterkunft. Jedes noch so kleine Detail im kapholländischen Haus und im großen Garten mit fantastischem Pool und Naturstrand ist wirklich bestens durchdacht. Ausgesprochen nette, hilfsbereite und freundliche Gastgeber. Ein Gefühl wie bei guten Freunden. Eine traumhafte Oase in die sich auch der Haushund Willi perfekt einpasst. Eigentlich ein Geheimtipp, den man für sich behalten sollte. Bei einem nochmaligen Besuch in Südafrika werden wir auf jeden Fall versuchen dort wieder Unterkunft zu bekommen. Das Highlight unserer dreiwöchigen Südafrikareise.
Hier gab es wirklich nichts zu bemängeln
A wonderful and professional couple, with very hospitable ways always accommodating you in every way possible. The service, room’s property and environment are 5 *. The massive pool is secluded and perfect for the late evening dip. We will definitely be back. Carla, Gerhard and Chantel
Hi Hilde and Dieter
We're back into our normal routine in Cape Town again, but keep remembering our days in Robertson fondly.
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. The room was great, the breakfasts tasty and the gardens beautiful. Jesse loved your dog and the tall, tall palm tree sticking out from behind the rooms. Lance loved the shower and all the different fruit trees in the garden. I loved the bag of swimming towels outside the room and being woken by church bells on Good Friday.
Dieter en Hilde,
We will thank you for the great stay at De Oude Opstal. You are very friendly and helpful and we felt right at home. The garden is wonderful, very big and very quiet with a lovely large swimming pool. The room is beautifully decorated everything fits together. We had a wonderfull time with you, many thanks.
Just 2 weeks ago we were still on holiday in South Africa. We (2 adults and a 2 year old child) were travelling around the country, but had a lot of things to do around Robertson/McGregor. Luckily we found De Oude Opstal quickly. We had the Out of Africa room which was really spacious. The bedroom, bathroom and self catering kitchen were all clean and ready to be used. The bathroom was spacious and plenty of room to move and hooks to hang face cloths, towels, clothes and robes. And the bath was really nice too. Although the house is in town, the environment is tranquil and peaceful with large trees and a settled garden with beautiful flowers (spring was in the air so we saw a lot of beautiful, colourful flowers). There is also a large pool where one can relax, either to just enjoy the sun or swim a couple of lengths – unfortunately it was still too cold for us to use. There is also a braai in the garden which you can use. Hilde and Dieter were really friendly and were so kind and helpful for us, also in respect of our daughter (providing us with extra towels so she could splash around in the bathtub, potatoes for our braai etc). Their knowledge about Robertson and surroundings is also tremendous; they helped us with addresses in and around Robertson and also they told us a lot about their lovely Cape Dutch house. Willy their watch dog was also so lovely and kind and off course there was Cassiopeia their tortoise. You can imagine that we spent 6 days in the Out of Africa room; every time we needed to be around we stayed in the Out of Africa room. It felt like home to us; when staying over in Robertson again – we will definitely go back to De Oude Opstal.
We just wanted to thank you for the warm welcome and comfortable stay at De Oude Opstal on 29 July 2011. Your house is beautiful, your garden is peaceful, your accomodation is loveley, your dog is adorable and your breakfast was delicious. We will definitely be back and will tell all our friends about your farm in the heart of Robertson.
What a joy. Very comfortable, well equipped and central accommodation. Lovely views, peace and quiet and very welcoming hosts. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely recommend it to all our friends and family. Hopefully we'll get another opportunity to make use of this great venue.
As if at home in Robertson

I arrived at De Oude Opstal on a hot day for one night only and was delighted that the room was spacious and cool, even though it was on the top floor. The bedroom, bathroom and self catering kitchen were all clean and ready to be used. The linen was still new (and fresh). The bathroom was spacious and plenty of room to move and hooks to hang face cloths, towels, clothes and robes.
Although the house is in town, the environment is tranquil and peaceful with large trees and a settled garden with beautiful flowers.
There is also a large pool where one can relax, either to just enjoy the sun or swim a couple of lengths - be sure to bring your swimsuit as I did not pack mine.
The staff was friendly and helpful and Willy (the watch dog) is beautiful and has good manners. Breakfast was tasty and more than enough to last (it included home made jam!).
When staying over in Robertson again - will definitely go back to De Oude Opstal.
Vielen dank Hilde und Dieter! What a day......really would have loved to spend more time enjoying your wonderfull hospitality and a room to dream of. Good luck and many thanks........Manfred und Lizbe Kapstadt
Dear Hilde and Dieter,
Many thanks for the most beautiful time spent at your magnificent home, you made our holiday perfect. We will remember you always.
Roy and Colette
This guesthouse is in Robertson and is stunning. If you drive the R62 you MUST visit.
Es war ein traumhafter Urlaub bei Hilde und Dieter. Díeses B&B ist sehr zu empfehlen.
Das Essen und die liebevoll eingerichteten Zimmer sind perfekt und den Pool hatten wir während unseres Aufenthalts komplett für uns alleine. Unsere Ausflüge wurden von Dieter super durchgeplant und organisiert. Seine Tipps sind einfach Gold wert. WIR KOMMEN WIEDER!!! 7 VON 5 STERNEN für dieses B&B.
Liebe Grüße von Holger und Chantal
