We stayed at the Vergelegen Guesthouse en-route from Johannesberg to the West Coast in February 2015. The rooms were spotlessly clean, with effective air-con and the restaurant was very good. Will definitely return if in the area.

We chose this spot as it had great reviews, and seemed to be on the main road and hence easy to find after a long drive from Pretoria. And this is exactly what it was - arriving in the dark into Kakamas, well sign posted and easily found (note it is about 4km before the town center, when coming from... More

On our Namaqualand trip we stayed at this guesthouse near Kakamas. We had no problem in finding Vergelegen as it is on the main road. The book in was hassle free and the rooms are kept clean and neatly furnished. Everything works in the rooms including Wi-Fi. We enjoyed this accommodation and the restaurant on the premises offers a great... More

It's second time at Vergelegen and it still felt like I have never been. The gardens here are just so well done and the picnic area is elegantly set amongst the tall trees. My friends and I had such great times here and the staff was very good. The 2 ladies at reception are so genuine and sincere being, they... More

Arrived at Kakamas after a 3-week road-trip through Namibia. Eugene met us upon arrival and could not do enough to help. Peaceful courtyard and tasty dinner served in the dining room or on the terrace. Very friendly and helpful staff and comfortable rooms. Glad we also met Cavitha.

I visited twice for a single night en route to the West Coast and back. Vergelegen is a rare find. The rooms are wonderful and the restaurant serves food to die for. It borders on fine dining. I particularly liked the carpaccio with blue cheese and green fig preserve. But what made Vergelegen the special place it is to me... More

We stayed for 2 nights. Excellent service. Rooms clean and tidy and well equipped. Food at the restaurant was delicious and staff really friendly and helpful. Unit also had a nice private patio where one could sit and relax.

We had just paddled the orange river and had a group of 20. They made us feel comfortable and nothing was too much effort. The food was really fantastic and great value. Will highly recommend Vergelegen.

This is motel-style accommodation with rooms surrounding a courtyard. There is a small swimming pool. The room was comfortable and had everything you need. The electrical sockets were either hidden behind the bed and inaccessible or bristling the plug extensions and overloaded. It made finding somewhere to charge your devices quite hard. We had lunch there but a lot of... More
