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 drove past looking for a place for lunch and only just stopped here - didn't look much from the outside . Once inside we found a wonderful restaurant , great food, excellent service. 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

I usually stop over for lunch in the cool courtyard. The scones are a must with the quince jelly! Last week I had to stay over and really enjoyed my stay. This establishment gets my 'SORTED' stamp of approval.

Driving back from Kasane in Botswana to Cape Town is a 3 day trip ... and on our last night we stumbled upon this lodge in what looked like (and is!) a one-horse town. We were pleasantly surprised - the room was comfortable, the shower was hot and the buffet was delicious. The cat was friendly! I see a lot... More

Fabulous to find a place that does such great food in such a lovely dining room on the N12! Well stocked cellar, pleasant staff, interesting reading. Rooms are spotless and bath water hot. Warm rooms, comfortable beds. Prices reasonable, what more could one ask? We will make this a frequent stop in our travels.

This is one of those quirky hotels in the middle of nowhere and yes, you’ll find things that don’t work as they should but here you should just embrace it and enjoy the old school feeling. The food is a bit pricey but the service and the food was great. Cool stop on the N12.
