Our third stay in this lovely guest house and it was as good as ever. We had room 1 in the garden which is large, has a beautifully comfortable bed (also 2 single beds) and is amazingly furnished with antique furniture and memorabilia. The house itself is also furnished with antiques and the breakfast in the elegant dining room is... More

A very Nice but lof fashioned b&b. As mentioned before in the advertisement, no more diners are served in the B&B. Unfortunate as the b&b is situated in a quiet area. They direct you to a nearby restaurant.

We decided to spend a few days in Graaff-Reinet as an alternative to the very touristy Garden Route. We had a wonderful time there; the town has a relaxed, friendly feel and has to be one of the cleanest towns we've ever come across on our travels. Beautiful architecture, quaint little shops and a handful of decent places to eat... More

Old fashioned guesthouse close to the small center of Graaff-R. A lot of antique furniture. Large room with good beds, pretty and cosy bathroom. High ceiling. The air con worked well. The breakfast was nice, besides the typical english eggs etc. as well fruits and others.

Breakast was served outside in the nice relaxing garden (super tiny pool though) and locaion... More

Lovely guest house, knowledgeable hosts and really beautiful delicious breakfast. Slept like babies. Safe and secure. We walked to a well known pub for Karoo lamb chops and Babootie (?) for dinner and went to Valley of Desolation first thing next morning - lots of mountain zebra on the way there, and then out to Niue Bethesda.

One of the delights of road trips around South Africa - and indeed Namibia- is the sheer quantity of comfy, welcoming, good value guesthouses. This one, in the heart of Voortrekker country, is no exception. We were on our way from the battlefields in Kwazulu Natal to the Kleine Karoo. We stayed in a room which is set apart from... More

What a treat it was to stay at Aa'Qtansisi on route to Plettenberg Bay. The hosting and service were exceptional, owner managed and highly personalised welcoming service, no request was too much trouble. Breakfast and dining room very charming and the authenticity of the décor was well received. Graaff - Reniet with its wide spotless streets, and history is well... More

I am enthralled by this guest house. We are so glad to have stayed here on our last night. Brilliant and personal service. Small pool and sublime coffee. What a good breakfast. The dining room is charming .A true home from home.
