We so enjoyed our overnight stay at Ou Skool. The classrooms of this old school have been beautifully and tastefully converted into rooms that are named after school subjects. We stayed in the music room. The bedding is luxurious and the bathroom spotless with complimentary shower gel, shampoo etc. Some of the rooms have self catering too. We had a wonderful braai - the braai facilities were great. There is also a small restaurant/bar on the premises and meals can be arranged. Our hosts made us feel most welcome.

Although DSTV is advertised, there was nothing at the guest house. I booked the triple room (because of the advert showing a kitchen for self catering). I was allocated a different room upon arrival (no microwave) and had to request my original booking. One wall plug was unserviceable and a multi plug was allocated. We had to put the kettle on the ground due to the lead being to short, and remove and insert plugs to make appliances work. Locals adjacent played loud music and had a big party. NEVER AGAIN!!
