About Oakdene Guest House B&B

Oakdene Guest House is situated in the centre of historic Oudtshoorn, and captures all the character, charm and heritage of a bygone era - the ostrich feather boom (1880 to 1914).

This charming Victorian home is one of the oldest houses in Oudtshoorn dating back to 1853. The plot originally belonged to Rev. T.J. van der Riet and the house was built by Mr. J.H. Mulder who also built the magnificent sandstone Moederkerk and Pastorie. Oakdene was declared a National Monument in 1988. Fortunately the exterior of the house has been preserved. The main road actually narrows close to Oakdene to preserve the last remaining piece of the original open water lead-lined furrow, dated 1847 which ran through Oudtshoorn in the old days.

Oakdene is sheltered under the original Oak trees in the centre of Oudtshoorn, on the main tourist route to the well known Cango Caves and Ostrich farms. The front door of Oakdene Guest House is always wide open to the street offering a warm and inviting glimpse of gleaming wood and a golden interior that few passers-by can resist. Oakdene is within walking distance from the town centre and well known restaurants to enjoy local wines and delicious Ostrich steaks.

Oakdene is completely fresh renovated and refurbished and since June 2014 under new German management by Max Huber.


After a 3 month complete refurbishment Oakdene will present itself in its historical Victorian glory. Oakdene has 6 newly styled en-suite rooms with bath or shower.

All rooms are individual, have remote controlled air-conditioning, satellite flat panel TV, W-iFi, coffee/tea trays, safe, hairdryer and bath accessories. Electric blankets in winter and other amenities to make your stay a pleasant one.

Newly designed tropical garden with swimming pool, garden furniture, sun loungers and parasols to enjoy our sunny days.


A real South African breakfast is served in the “plaas kombuis” or outside on the patio over looking the lush garden. We serve fresh baked bread, a variety of jams, fresh fruit, cheese board, a variety of cereals and a cooked breakfast of your choice, traditionally South African with yoghurt, fresh fruit juice, tea and coffee.

But what will remain with you for a long time after visiting Oakdene is the warmth and hospitality of your host.

We look forward to welcoming you.
