Ottosdal was just a dot on the road map to kick off our Cape Town tour. The let the reviews lead us and chose Ouplaas. We booked the family suites with their own exit to the sidewalk. We were greeted with a very spacious room, a seating area with two comfortable chairs, a fridge, coffee and tea making facilities and everything that any guest needs. The bathroom is beautiful and the carpets in the room are soft and lush. The king size bed, bedding and pillows are excellent. We felt like kings. We were treated very well by our hosts, Magdalena and Coert. We ordered dinner and breakfast and, once again, we were treated like royalty with meals served with extreme care and taste. The friendliness and hospitality was like a fresh breeze. Magdalena and Coert are set up to offer only the best for their guests. That was apparent in every experience during our stay. One does not expect such a stay in a small town like Ottosdal, and we were knocked off our feet. Thank you, Magdalena and Coert - you are indeed an example. We will take a detour again to stay with you if we are in the area!
