Room comfortable - rather noisy being on the corner leading directly onto two streets and guests in next-door room travelling with three small yappy dogs. Staff pleasant and helpful - breakfast good but no dinner option available

Nice homely overnight stay, but we had three 'issues' - firstly, I do'nt know about the other rooms, but room nr 8 has an open plan toilet- not good. If there is one place where privacy is a luxury- that's the toilet. Secondly, they serve a buffet for dinner, which they weigh to price, not nice. Thirdly, their booking system... More

Fabulous overnight stop just off the N1 outside Colesburg! Pet friendly for small dogs, warm and very helpful staff. A great Karoo dinner buffet and nicnac shop. Staff were accommodating with rolling out booking over a night...in peak season. Only suggestion would be to improve on the wine list. We will be back!

This superb Guest House offers the traveller an ultimate stopover en route through the Karoo. At typical homely Karoo setting, with neat spacious rooms adequately equipped. Dinners available in the rooms if so requested with bookings. Wholesome breakfasts in the breakfast room which also accommodates a very interesting home industry shop. The tranquillity of a Karoo town atmosphere dominates the... More

I must visit Victoria West on business every month. I stayed at various guest houses in town initially with no bad experiences. Then I took my wife with on one trip and she came across Kingwill's Guesthouse and Karoo Deli. During the last almost 70 months I have stayed here. It has become a home from home. After a long...

This is the ideal spot to stay overnight from Gauteng to Cape Town. The location is nice, right next to the mountain. With the limited restaurant facilities in town the small restaurant is ideal. Mind to arrive in time for a late lunch though since they do not serve dinner and the dinner facilities in town are very limited.

Very good accommodation for overnight road trip stay. Comfortable lodging, friendly service and really good breakfast. Rates are reasonable during peak season. No dinner provided but there are other options to self cater but limited dining options in town.

We stopped over on our north from Cape Town and we arrived late but found a clean tidy room waiting for us. Lovely fresh bathroom and clean linen. Great service and hospitality. The room we got was real value for money. Great place for overnight stay. Was thrilled to see they had juice in the fridge, coffee bar and even... More

Not planning to stay over till I got to Kimberley, I found myself stuck for time, as the alternative route my ipad calculated was not tarred... I quickly searched the web for spots in Victoria west, with no expectation but a bath.... But what a little treasure I found. Kingswill's guesthouse was easy to find, and held lots of little...

We were 4 four bikers circling the Karoo and spent one night at Kingwsill Guest House. Rooms are large, comfortable and well appointed with a flat screen TV and DSTV. The rooms have everything one needs. A nice gift shop and deli with interesting items is part of hotel, with a small pool and outdoor area filled with unique pieces.... More
