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!

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.

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

Converted old home that has been made into a guest house. Wonderfully decorated, although we could have used less "pretties" in our room leaving room to place our things. Wonderful high ceilings and a very good and accommodating staff. Only two issues while we were there. Our bedroom had a bathroom door that was very artistic, but had large vertical... More

This is a wonderful place to stay. It is furnished superbly. The staff are very attentive and the food is excellent. Ria was away but the house ran with its usual efficiency and attention to detail. Nico provided excellent dinners. We have every intention of returning.

Our second visit ....this time we had Room 1 in the garden and it was excellent in every way. The decorating and equipping of the room has been done with great flair and attention to detail. It has a great collection of memorabilia and antiques as does the rest of the guest house. Breakfast served in the elegant dining room... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This old Karoo home, circa 1856, has been created into a small boutique-type accommodation centrally situated in Graaff-Reinet, the jewel of the Karoo. Our guesthouse, named Aa’Qtansisi, is derived from the authentic original Khoisan language, meaning "We welcome You." Dating back 350,000 years ago, the Khoisan were the first human inhabitants, in Graaff-Reinet & our town - Graaff-Reinet may well be the Origin of Mankind! Be prepared to be spoiled & delighted with personal attention & unique flavours of decor in each part of this accommodation so that Aa’Qtansisi will become your first choice of accommodation when passing through Graaff-Reinet. ... more   less
