Tranquil atmosphere. Good service. Great breakfast. Good service coupled with a warm old style feel. Rather than the clinical effect of a new modern hotel. One can see that this hotel that has a lot of history. I Can recommend it as a place to stay

We had the pleasure of staying the beautiful little town of Calvinia earlier on this year and we decided to book in at the Hantam Hotel. All that i can say is WOW. From the beautiful dining to the rustic bar setting, we had a great time. There was entertainment for the kids, we had nice cold bevergaes while sitting... More

We are a group of hunters that stay at the Hantam Hotel every year for the last 10 years and what a great experience for all of us. Yes it is an old fashioned Plattelandse Hotel and it is what we expect it to be. The staff are excellent and we had great parties and great food. We will recommend... More

We have stayed at the Hantam Hotel a number of times, more than once during Calvinia's Vleisfees. We were informed as to what may be expected during the weekend and despite run off their feet, the staff were friendly and accommodating. The ' Vleisfees ' is exactly that, a festival which really is a weekend long party! Again really surpised... More

We booked at the Hotel so that we could have a comfortable, clean place to sleep over during the weekend of the Calvinia Vleisfees. We had to pay in advance, with no dicount for a child aged 8. I didn't expect 5 star service but the Hantam Hotel was an extremely disappointing experience. Only a bath in the bathroom with... More

We booked here so that we'd have a comfortable place to sleep over during the weekend of the Calvinia Vleisfees. I didn't expect a glamorous setting and the Hantam Hotel was exactly as I had pictured it - straight out of the early 80's, stained bathtub, attachable hose for a shower, a TV that only got SABC 2 and a...

Pick this hotel if you really wish you were back in the seventies. That's were the rooms seem to be, anyway. It's not really bad, but it certainly isn't good either. Ask at the reception for a rubber hose that functions as a shower after you connect it to the bathtub tap. There is an upside to this hotel, however.... More
