My dad and I decided to spend the night at Die Tuishuise while travelling from Durban to Cape Town. I suggested we booked another night and spend a day in Cradock. As we arrived we knew it was a good decision. The receptionist was warm and helpful at our late arrival. We were then escorted across the road to one... More

This is a real Karoo experience with the hospitality, Karoo lamb, authentic houses (accommodation) and value for money ect. You can taste the Karoo dust under your skin. Oh i love the Karoo & its people.

Sandra has done an amazing job saving these old cottages and the hotel at the end of the street. She has individually renovated each cottage with authentic furniture - it is a great piece of living history. The cottages are cozy and the the restaurant is great. Worth staying at.

The service and the people were brilliant. Accommodating and kind despite our doorstep, no booking, arrival. The food was out of this world. The hotel decor reminiscent. The cottage was immaculate and very cosy.

We stayed in one of the Tuishuise cottages last weekend as a last minute decision after having to make an overnight stop in Cradock. We decided to book here as it was at the top of the Tripadvisor list for Cradock, and we soon saw why! After checking in at the hotel we were led to our historic cottage. What... More

Cradock has lots of old buildings, including Die Tuishuise itself. My research suggested that is the obvious place to stay and my one-night stay confirmed that. The room was not large but the service was good. Also a very good dinner. If you are going to Cradock, you are probably going from Port Elizabeth to Mountain Zebra National Park, which... More

One gets so used to hotel and guesthouse rooms that you start to compare everything with that. Well, this can't be compared to any of those. Tuishuise is ideally situated in Cradock to explore the town's history and other sights as well as for a trip out to Mountain Zebra. Its the second time I stayed at Tuishuise and the... More

Just like the pictures - a row of bright houses with Victorian tin roofs. We stayed in "Out of Africa", it was like stepping back 100 years. All the basic are provided, the houses are well restored, neatly decorated and makes you smile. There is plenty of information provided in the house on things to see and do. Detailed history... More
