We had the pleasure of staying at this Karoo oasis for only one night but could have stayed longer if time permitted. We were welcomed by Patricia who is a delightful person performing all sorts of functions - reception, bar lady, waitress in the delightful dining room and other activities - very well trained by the Southey family. The dinner... More

Once again we had a very comfortable night preceded by a delicious farm cooked dinner. My daughter and I were en route to Cape Town so this accommodation is ideally placed, close to the N1 but without the noise. Very comfortable rooms and lovely breakfast with the Southey family. Can't wait to stay again.

My husband, I and 2 friends found this a very welcoming place for an overnight stay. After a long car journey it was wonderful to be able to stretch our legs by enjoying a long late afternoon walk around the farm, making the acquaintance of the cows and horses followed by Jingles the tame squirrel and sundowners in the courtyard....

This was our third stay over and as per usual the dinner was delicious, the room (stables) was cosy and comfortable and Penny is always a wonderful host. This is always one of our higlights when roadtripping.

This is our 3rd and 4th visit to this charming overnight accommodation - right outside Colesberg. We stayed at The Paddocks - Kuilfontein self-catering section - and was, once again, treated extremely well. We were welcomed by Evelyn, the always friendly and super efficient manager. We stayed at The Last Fling - accommodation for 2 people. The other units are... More

We absolutely LOVED the night we spent there, and could easily have stayed more nights. I would have loved to spend more time taking photos of the landscapes around there. The kids saw a brand new lamb which was amazing to see. The food was spectacular… I had the lamb curry for supper which was amazing, and the boys enjoyed... More

We stayed in the Paddocks, with 4 year old and tiny baby. Very friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful surrounds and sunsets. Dinner was served at our unit and really tasty (highly recommended). Will definitely be back when we drive down to the Cape again.

Great place to overnight between Johannesburg and Cape Town. Just off the N1 not quite halfway it is an oasis in the Karoo. Big plus is an excellent dinner - congratulations to the chef. Very hospitable staff to look after you. Also has great selfcatering units with a view.

What a lovely surprise! Comfortable rooms, crisp white linens, great feather pillows and what a warm welcome. The gathering at the bar, meeting the other interesting guests, it felt like home. The dinner was excellent, good wine recommendation, we slept well had a good breakfast, home baked bread to die for. We did not get to know the rest of... More
