On route to Johannesburg we stayed over for a night. The welcome was friendly and a good overview was given of the property. The swimming pool was a welcome reprieve from the heat of the day. We were shown an honesty bar, but unfortunately if you are in the mood for an evening cocktail or night cap the selection was... More

Our follow up visit en route to the Cape this year. Same large family room and all good. On reflection, not the best breakfast we had. Tricky choices for kids, but staff did their best to accomodate. Love the small pool

A fantastic B&B, close to the center. Breakfast is a treat for mouth and eye. The rooms are all individually furnished with a lot of creativity. We had the family room, very nice, only small outage was that wifi does not reach into the room. Super friendly owner. Great value for money.

Aa'Qtansisi has become a favourite and is our only choice when staying over in Graaff-Reinet. Always a warm and friendly welcome, personal attention, soft and comfortable beds and a sumptuous breakfast.

We have stayed with AA Qtansisi on numerous occasions and will recommend this establishment to our friends and colleagues. The rooms are all well equipped with friendly service and hospitality. Safe & Secure parking behind remote controlled gate. The establishment is also within walking distance to some fine dining and shopping. To Ria and her team, THANK YOU
