I highly recommend staying at this Guest House. It is a beautiful Victorian building and the style is carried through the entire hotel. We were upgraded to a suite and no extra charge and got a second bedroom at a reduced rate as they weren't full on the night we visited. The hotel is owner run and it shows. The... More

What a wonderful stop over we had for one night. Beautiful surroundings, clean and staff that go out of their way for you. Gardens spectacular, and breakfast was awesome. We did not book in advance and just arrived in Graaff-Reinet took the first street after the Spur and found this little treasure, and lucky enough to find a room there.

This is a real find in Graaff Reinet. It says 'gracious living' on it's strap line and it is certainly that. We stayed as 2 couples, and had the Honeymoon room, and the Feather Baron suite, both were beautifully appointed, and the furnishings matched the house. The bathrooms were very good, with plenty of towels and toiletries, and the beds... More

First impression on arrival-wow! It didn't disappoint. Lovely host, Nico, Superb room [Lavender Room] with excellent sleep quality. Beautifully furnished. Nice fresh cooked breakfast served by delightful staff. Yes, agree there could be a few more sun loungers round pool.Great location for walking round town and restaurants. If you have a quibble, just mention it to Nico. My wife thought... More

We stayed for 2 nights and the accommodation was good. The breakfast was a little disappointing. It is well situated to look around the Town and also for the small number of eating houses. Good swimming pool but could have done with a few more Loungers and Cushions. There is plenty to do in the Town and outside.

We stayed in the Lavender Room with its beautiful and thoughtful furnishings and had the most wonderful stay. Nico and Tess made sure it. The selection at breakfast was a little disappointing compared to other lodges we stayed in during our trip to South Africa but certainly was not grounds for complaint, hence our "very good" rather than "excellent" rating.

Lovely setting next to a brilliant restaurant and coffee shop. The owner allowed us to make a braai on the evening which was very much appreciated. The only reason for the 3 star review is the very mediocre breakfast and the price which is very high. I think at half the price it would be well worth it.

Stayed here one night on our way to knysna. This place is a gem, we stayed in the Lavender Room , all the rooms are themed which is a nice touch. The Band B is right in the centre of town with museums and restaurants only a short walk away. The room was a good size with lovely furnishings .... More

Stayed there by chance and we are so lucky we did. Not only was there an eye for exquisite detail but the service and overall homely feel made you so relaxed. A gorgeous room with a very comfy bed and delicious breakfast! Thank you Nico for such a great stay.

We had an overnight stay here on our way to Oudtshoorn. Our room, a separate cottage was furnished in quaint rural style. It was comfortable and clean as was the bathroom (the latter being roomy but rather austere). The room did need rewiring though as there are adaptors and wires all over the place. Breakfast was nicely cooked with fruit... More
