We loved Graaff Reniet. I had not visited since my teen years but we impressed to find this Historical little town to be tranquil, clean and welcoming. This guesthouse is lovely. Much attention has been given to the little details which make a stay more pleasurable and the breakfasts served are delicious and beautifully presented. We spent 2 nights here... More

After reading the reviews we were looking forward to staying here. On arrival we were also greeted by someone who didn't introduce herself or share any information about the house. Even though we had booked months before we were given the worst room in the house which is beside the kitchen and opens directly onto the dining room so was... More

Overall we had a good stay here and so my comments may seem a bit picky but our experience was so different and less positive here than any other guest house we stayed in while in SA. When we arrived the person who let us in never introduced herself, showed us the use of the various keys and fobs, showed... More

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful B & B in Graaf Reinett, our room was luxurious and very comfortable, tea and coffee in plentiful supply also in the Dining Room. We were welcomed by Pierre who made our stay enjoyable. We would recommend the Dinner in the evening cooked by the resident chef, both nights the food was... More

We have stayed at Aa Qtansisi several times and we are always made to feel right at home. Great guesthouse in the heart of Town, very comfortable, warm and a hearty breakfast along with an unexpected car wash. Great place, Thanks Ria. see you soon!

What a special Guesthouse! We stayed in the stylish decorated cottage, where old and new is combined in tastefully decorated room! The "turn down" before going to bed was so special, with hot blankets turned on, and wonderful mohair blankets. The coffee machine in the dining room was a luxury for our family! Cathleen, the receptionist end Nico, the chef... More

Thanks Nico for your friendly service and stunning Dinners! Breakfast were well presented with an artistic touch. The room were warm and the place is tastefully decorated, the owner went the extra mile to show us places in town. We fell in love with your town.

Arrived late afternoon and was met by Nico the Chef, Nico did a great job in explaining everything and showed us to our room. Lovely room and well appointed, the house itself has been lovingly restored and is full of beautiful furniture. We had supper in the Guesthouse and it was excellent, most enjoyable, again hats off to Nico, great... More

Friendly, helpful people. Great service and a big plus is the "honesty" bar and superb coffee from a fancy machine which are available 24hrs/day for us insomniacs. I will definitely stay here again, hopefully for longer next time.

We booked the room no 1 and no 5. And, yes, they look just as displayed on their website. http://aaqtansisi.co.za so I did not have to take any pictures. The rooms are large with aircon that works well to warm up the room, as it was cold when we stayed there. The bed in room no 1 is a queen... More
