Gracefully appointed Cape Dutch homestead in the heart of the Karoo . The original circa 150 year old Grape vine on the veranda is a central feature of its immaculate garden. Hosts Peet and Chere were welcoming and gracious. An added bonus is the Polka Restaurant within walking distance for fine dining with a Karoo flavour.

The Guest house is really pretty and the landlord was very kind to us. I don't exactly remember how much I spent, but the room was huge and could easily accomodate our whole family (two adults, and three kids aged 2, 5 and 8).

This was our first visit to Graaff-Reinet and we chose well. Cherie was so very welcoming and offered us a couple of rooms to choose from and we selected the Rose room. It was charming, everything we could need, sherry, tea and coffee, extra mohair blankets if we wanted them, very comfortable bed, shower accessories etc. Cherie made some excellent... More

We were so fortunate to have chosen this exceptional guest house where everything was perfect, our hosts Peet and Chere could not have done more for us and everything we requested was done with pleasure. Spotlessly clean and super comfortable! In a great position, within easy walking distance to the best restaurants and shopping street.

From the first moment you step inside this splendorous guesthouse, you feel the warm hospitality of the hosts. You can really unwind and relax in one of their uniquely decorated rooms or just enjoy a beer next to the pool. Nothing better to recharge your energy for the journey ahead. This is a must stop midway oasis to any destination... More

My first stay was during a business trip, after which I decided that my wife & kids must also experience this wonderful guest house and beautiful town. The Graaff-Reinet museums, the viewpoint over Vallei van Verlatenheid and the Polka restaurant (round the corner from Buiten Verwagting Gueat House) are all highly recommended.

Beautifully kept mansion of a home with enough space for privacy and comfort. Quaint and tastefully decorated with that personal touch. Hospitable and very friendly people. Situated within walking distance of restaurants.

A fabulous stopover in Graaff-Reinet which is a logical stop-off en-route between Cape Town and the Eastern Cape. Very well run, spotlessly clean, room was well-appointed and well-equipped with comfortable beds, small kitchenette. Great breakfast, and very quiet location - all round a great find! A definite must!

We stopped in Graaff-Reinet on our way from Pretoria to Cape Town and had a wonderful stay. This guest house was so welcoming and accommodating - especially given that we were traveling with our two young children. The rooms were cozy and warm and it felt like we were staying at a friend's home. The breakfast was great and it... More

Stayed here during thd Stoep Tasting in May. Very comfoetable, well appointed Victorian Room. Despite the manager being in hospital during our stay we were very well looked after and would definitely love to return.
