Pleasant staff, comfortable clean room, great breakfast. Relaxing atmospher. Would love to see the roses in flower in summer.
The peace and serenity and friendliness of the staff
Even their own website does not reflect in my eyes the real breathtaking beauty of this place. Everything is perfect. This is a place where one could stay for days, just enjoying from your own patio the landscaped garden and beautiful premises. Everything is done with good taste and is in top condition. Breakfast is quite an experience: settings and content made us almost speechless. Staff is relaxed and pleasant. In short: this place is a gem.
Luxurious and very neat
Room view was homely. beautiful surroundings.Wasing of our car. that was excellant. Access to room from your vehicle.
Staff were very friendly The rooms were very tied looking.
The place is amazing and lovely. All the standard rooms are faced to the garden and pool so it is extremely relaxing. Not so far from the city center (15 min walking), it is such a quiet and noiseless place. The decoration matches with the typical Oudtshoorn ostrich themes. The full English breakfast is accompanied with a little buffet of juices, cheeses, cakes, cold meat, yogurts, muffins, marmalade, jam and toasts. In my opinion, another waiter/waitress should be available during the breakfast service. We had to wait for 15 min to be helped.
Die Fonteine is excellent lowly place for anybody who love nature and quet rural accomodation. Very clean, very friendly - highly reccomend for young families. No
Die Fonteine is a very beautyfull new accomodation close to the city of Oudthorn. Nevertheless there is not city rush as it is accomodated in a more peacefull small village at which the Ostriches welcome you when you enter. The room, staff and breakfast were perfect and the best activities in the area were around the corner; an Ostrich farm, Buffelsdrift (wildlife park) and the Cango Wildlife range which are all worht a visit. No complaints at all!
Perfect location. Staff pleasent and accomodating to the unforseen needs of guests. Breakfast outstanding! No complaints.

The breakfast and dinner were excellent. I've never had an ostrich steak before and it was the best meat I have ever tasted... ever. It was a nice place to get away and it was very quiet. The room was nicely decorated, but the amenities were basic (TV didn't work) and the rooms were small(er). Perhaps our expectations were set by the stay we had the previous night at the Rex Hotel in Knysna (fantastic in every way and very reasonably priced).
Fabulous hotel, beautiful views and rooms, silent Karoo landscapes, good food and most of all extremely kind and attentive staff 100% recommendation.
relaxing atmosphere none
It's location and abundant birdlife
Friendly.Out of town.
THe professional service offerred at all times no
we had a lovely stay at the hotel confortable accomadation, friendly staff Lovely food. Good location and easy to find. Pool was not very clean
Great service, staff, food, and location! I am unable to identify anything they could improve: true value for money!
The service was really good, the house is in a beautiful setting, great views to the mountains from the pool. My room didn't have a bathroom, the doors both from the room and the bathroom in the corridor couldn't be locked by any means, total absense of privacy due to thin doors and closeness to the kitchen, I woke up at 5 with the microwave,
The food was excellent, location and views good and had a nice pool area. The management was distant, and initially invisible,ie no welcome. Contrary to the brochure there was no Mnet or satellite, and we were not told about or offered he wine tasting or farm tour. Also the gardening staff in particular were not friendly
