Sandra and her daughter Lisa go way beyond the norm to make you feel welcome and important to them and their staff. They even looked up ancestors in our family line that lived on the historical street in Cradock. The historical ambience, food and service is superb. This is why we have stayed there whenever we are travelling through the... More

We stayed for only one night, but truly enjoyed the house and the service. Staying in a cottage with lots of charm and space is really special. Having your own house, with kitchen, two bathrooms and a living room, makes you feel at home, having your own place. The service of the owners and staff was special. We received great... More

Had a great stay. The staff always goes the extra mile when we stay there. Food is great, especially the pot pies. Never feel unsafe as Vernon is always around and the town is so peaceful anyway. Won't stay anywhere else.

Driving from Botswana to E Cape, I needed an over night spot. I was a late walk in. Staff welcoming and helpful. Hotel old, nice historical feel, loved the timber floor boards. Food OK. Room clean and comfortable. Large shower with good hot water and plenty of pressure. Little bit noisy from exhaust brakes on trucks in transit but hey... More

Our annual stopover on the drive from Johannesburg to Port Elizabeth. Well located, quaint and quiet. Lovely dining room and great food. Staff are always friendly and receptive. On this trip we missed Amos serving in the resturant as he was on leave.

We enjoyed the experience of having a small and very old house to ourselves. The service was warm and friendly, the dining room table was set and the kitchen was well equipped. Altogether, a most interesting and unusual time.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this piece of history. We were well looked after and, in fact, we moved to a very pretty cottage, which had a bigger bed! Dinner was good, and breakfast outstanding. The dining room is amusingly and attractively done. It was also so pleasant to sit in front of the fire and have a chat with... More

It's hard to describe the outstanding service levels, the lovely accommodation and the great food that we experienced at Die Tuishuise and Victoria Manor in Cradock. There is SO much to do - relaxing, sight-seeing, mountain-biking… - that we simply didn't have enough time. If we expressed even the slightest wish for anything, our wishes were fulfilled. The staff is... More

The old Victoria Hotel, and a whole street of historic houses, have been lovingly restored to their original condition. Each house has a different theme. Meals are served in the hotel. Traditional Karoo food. Delicious. As the houses are furnished with antiques, it is not really suited to very young children. It is worth going to Cradock just to stay... More

We have been staying at Die Tuishuise with different groups of people for many years now. If they stayed there once, they never forget it - for all the right reasons. When they come back with other friends, they always request to stay there again, if the route makes it possible. They are just fascinated by the quaint cottages, the... More
