At the start of an African Oddesy we arrived in Graaff Reinet. We had had a miserable stay a year prior and were nervous about our accommodation. Reinette welcomed us, offering two different rooms to choose from. The choice made she discussed the dining options and proceeded to make the arrangements. We were also given the information to ensure we... More

I enjoyed my stay very much. The booking was handled very well, and I received a warm welcome on arrival. The room was huge and very comfortable, better than 5 star. Breakfast was a huge home cooked delight most definately to last you the whole day. I will highly recommend this facility.

I don't like B & B's - I prefer hotels. Reluctantly I booked at a B & B because the hotel in Graaff Reinet is being restored. How I could eat my words. Everything I thought about B & B's was put to rest. Somerset Stables was exactly like the pictures - and more. Reinette had turned on the heating... More

Somerset Stables is a perfect B&B. Very clean, quiet and quaint. Incredibly interesting decor and Reinette, the owner, is the loveliest lady with a warm and welcoming touch with fascinating stories to share. Her kindness made us feel at home and we were sad to say goodbye, but will most definitely return one day.

Amazing transformation of old stables by owner Reinette. Gorgeous farm-style kitchen from which we were served a deliciously indulgent breakfast. The living and dining rooms are filled with items with stories behind them. So much for your eyes to see. Our room was spacious and comfortable, with double basins and a bathtub in the room. Reinette kindly booked dinner for... More

What a fantastic place to stay. Always welcomed by reinet on arrival, where you are not seen as just a guest but a friend. Comfortable rooms with everything you need and the best breakfast the karoo has to offer, served in reinet's fabulous dining room. Always looking forward to my next visit here.
