Awesome place to stay over. Best service, they even did a dinner booking for us at Polka before we arrived. Stunning B&B. Excellent customer service. The restaurant they booked us at was one of the best we have even eaten at.

Buiten Verwagten was a perfect spot for our short stay in Graaff-Reinet during a cross-country road trip this month.

We stayed at Buitenverwagten for one night only, but would happily have stayed for much longer due to the very comfortable and well equipped accommodation, excellent breakfast and friendly and attentive staff. We will certainly stay there if we visit Graaf Rienet again.

Outstanding overnight facilities. Everything was clean and beautifully presented. The breakfast was delicious and more than enough for a hungry traveller. We will most certainly recommend Buiten Verwagten to all our friends.
