What a lovely experience! Warm welcoming staff, an abundance of excellent food, a small bottle of sherry in the room and the car being washed made this an unforgettable place. Rooms are large and well appointed and the loggia is the perfect place to relax after a long road trip.

Very friendly staff, a nice room which exceeded our expectations, and an incredible buffet for dinner, I highly recommend a stopover in this beautiful stop in the middle of the Karoo. We will be stopping there again when we travel that route and have already recommended it to a lot of our friends!

One of my favourite places in the Karoo. Wonderful, wonderful staff, who have all worked there for most of their lives. Family owned for as long as I can remember. And recently renovated – picture perfect. The food is always excellent and it is worth planning your stay around the Sunday lunch buffet. The outside patio area is perfect for... More

Those who have travelled through Britstown known that there's not much to it. That is why it is such a pleasant surprise to find the Transkaroo Country Lodge, a stylish retreat from the heat. Our room was beautifully appointed and although the bathroom is small, it was completely sufficient. The room has an aircon (a must in this part of... More

We stayed here 1 night on our trip from Upington to Oudtshoorn and we liked it. The hotel has a very special atmosphere, a great pool and nice courtyard. Room 37 has been recently renovated and has a nice bathroom. Parking is safe. The absolute plus of this place is the restaurant. We had a very nice diner. We can... More

Stopped over for lunch in Bristown while driving through the Karoo en route to Cape Town. The hotel has completely redone & has an excellent restaurant & deli. There is also a wine shop and we enjoyed great meal in the vine covered courtyard. I highly recommend this quaint but well decorated hotel.

Very quaint little hotel. Clean rooms, nice swimming pool, friendly staff (although not used to coming up with solutions to something like the ice running out but after a visit to the local garage and with the ice problem solved all was well again). Nicest restaurant and dining area. Very well priced and worthwhile if you are tired of the... More

We stayed at Transkaroo last week - the food was good and our room was comfortable with a small but acceptable bathroom. This time our stopover was not good. The room was unacceptably cramped. No room for our bags so a trip to the bathroom involved falling over everything. The bathroom - simply put, unacceptable! Dank smelling towels, a pathetic... More

The hotel was built in 1895, therefore we have bigger and smaller rooms. The guests always have a choice in whether to stay or not. We respect that guests have perspectives and objectives which differ from one another. The restaurant is open from 700h to 2100h and we are prepared to serve breakfast until 2100h if the guest wants that.... More

We bought our food by weight , so could mix up what we took from the hot meal counter - all home cooked , all really... More

Britstown is a very small town that has nothing much to offer for tourists. For a stopover, however, it's a great choice! We had a very friendly welcome and thought the price for accommodation fair. The restaurant has got a cosy atmosphere and served excellent home-made food. The quiches were excellent! The rooms are nothing to be remembered - they... More
