On our way back from the Hogsback we stayed at the Tuishuise and what a pleasant suprise. My guests that shared accommodation, each had their own room and this does make a big difference when on tour. The homes each had a kitchen with all amenities and television in the lounge. We actually had great fun with this accommodation as... More

We stayed overnight in a very comfortable room - the frontier. Right next door is a fantastic cafe - the Schreiner - where we had home cooked lunch. The pate was superb as was the soup. The little town is definitely worth a visit and a must is the Schreiner museum - probably the most interesting small museum I've been... More

If you're passing through Cradock don't miss a night in the Tuishuise. The Victorian cottages have all been lovingly restored and you can see that the whole street has been a wonderful labour of love. Make sure you book dinner in the beautiful and elegant dining room at the Victoria Hotel - what a treat! The Karoo fare is excellent.... More

We really enjoyed our one night stay in Cradock at this hotel like no other! Each 'room' is a cottage which has been renovated in a period style. Ours was called 'die werf' and it's theme was a rustic farm cottage. We loved it. We were lucky enough to see several of the others which were occupied by friends. They... More

The accommodation in a 3 bedroom cottage was charming. It felt as if one had walked into one's grandparent's home. The furniture was well-suited to the period of the house. The bed was comfortable with fresh clean linen. There was only one bathroom with the toilet in the bathroom, which could have been awkward with people you don't know particularly... More

We booked to stay at the Allan's cottage on the evening of the 2nd January, considering to stay a extra evening. The cottage was in a fairly good condition, although the bed and wooden floors are very noisy. We elected to have breakfast at the hotel. We were never informed of the dress code or nor was there any signs... More

The renovated Victorian cottages were a disappointment - although we found them spacious and clean (we had a whole cottage to ourselves which can sleep 4 along with a kitchen and sitting room), they were a bit shabby and worse for wear. The bed was small and not as comfortable as it could have been. The hotel and cottages are... More

Streets wide enough to turn your wagon and oxen around and enough pot-holes to damage your tyres - welcome to Cradock steeped with South African history. The lady owner of the amazing terrace of original Karoo houses including the Victoria Hotel and her private residence in Bree Street is doing an incredible job in sustaining our heritage. From the initial... More

I was greeted very friendly on arrival as if I am and old customer. Escorted to my house with great enthusiasm and warmth - showed me where everything is and pointed out the 2 steps to my en-suite - had a 2 bedroomed house with good quality furnishings and décor all to myself. Even had rusks for my morning coffee.... More

We had house nr. 46 and it was nice. We had a warmly welcome and a big house for two people. But its a old house and so you have some places in the house, where you can see it. But its not a problem. Cradock on itselfs is not worth to see. We made a walk but it's better... More
