Oakdene Guest House is situated in the centre of historic Oudtshoorn and captures all the character and heritage of a bygone era, the ostrich feather boom. This charming Victorian home is one of the oldest houses in Oudtshoorn, dating back to 1853. Oakdene was declared a National Monument in 1988.
The main road actually narrows close to Oakdene to preserve the last remaining piece of the original open water lead-lined furrow, which ran through Oudtshoorn in the old days.
Oakdene is sheltered under Oak trees in the centre of Oudtshoorn, on the main tourist route. Oakdene is within walking distance from the town centre and well known restaurants to enjoy local wines and delicious Ostrich steaks.
Oakdene has 6 spacious en-suite bedrooms, remote controlled air-conditioned, satellite flat panel TV, hairdryers, coffee/tea trays, safe in room, WiFi, electric blankets in winter and other amenities to make your stay a pleasant one.
Newly designed lush garden and swimming pool to enjoy Oudtshoorn’s sunny days. Breakfast is served in the ‘plaaskombuis’ or outside on the patio facing the garden. Home-made bread and apple cakes and home-made jam is served. If you have any request about a diet, let us know in advance. Laundry service is available. Safe under cover parking on the premises.
