I think its a piece of history, as some reviewers have mentioned, a picture of a bygone era... yes Walkerbouts Inn does capture all of that history and charm with historical artefacts to compliment the whole experience. Yes, some say the floors creek and the bed may be a tad noisy...but its not the Hilton and its not NY... no,... More

My family and I stayed in Ash Cottage which is a stunning self catering cottage rented out by the Walkerbouts team. The cottage itself was recently refurbished, was warm and very comfortable, all modern amenities, a Rayburn stove which we loved the novelty of on those cold winter nights and an easy distance from tiffindell ski resort where we spent...

My husband I stayed for one night and then for a further three nights. We really enjoyed our stay which was really meant to be a relaxing, do-nothing few days - and that is exactly what we did. We played board games, read books, did a few short walks and drives. Positives: - The main staff were friendly and sociable... More

13 Hours in the saddle and arrived via Naude's Nek at Walkerbouts Inn at 22h00 absolutely exhausted after riding through rain and thick mud. Not anticipating anyone awake at the Inn and really expecting to sleep in a manger, I was delighted beyond measure to find the team not only awake but very much awaiting my arrival with a hot...

We had a lovely meal at Walkerbouts Inn. After Xmas crackers and starters, the ladies each received a handmade soap and the men a bottle of their special herbal salt that the owner makes himself. The pub is the only hangout in this town that has been declared a national monument. Well worth a visit. The hotel (that also ran... More

You travel a good dirt road to reach the quaint and isolated hamlet of Rhodes. Time has stood still here and the same can be said about Walkerabouts Inn. What a refreshing experience to receive hospitality the is genuine and friendly...from the heart. The rooms are large, clean and from a bygone era. The Inn itself if a treasure trove... More

Walkerbouts is owned by a real character. Once you have stayed here you leave as friends. Although the house is very old it is clean and owns a feel of nostalgia. The chef of this establishment is a wonderful surprise and I can say without a doubt that I had the most amazing pizza ever right here in Rhodes. However... More

We stayed a night in their lovely cosy self-catering cottage but ate in the inn. Owners extremely helpful and courteous. Very good food: best trout we have ever tasted for supper and a delicious cooked breakfast from a talented chef. One word of caution: you can't just roam the mountain tracks and paths here as you might in Scotland, and... More

Forget Hilton, Sheraton or Holiday Inns...this is a pioneer style hotel in the unique and special township of Rhodes. Stepping in is like instantly going back 100 years and is a lovely experience. Rooms are simple, large and comfortable with good bathrooms even if they are a little tired. There is a nice dining/breakfast room and a pleasant louge area.... More
