This guest house is something to experience.From the neatly manicured gardens to the beautifully decorated historical homestead; the warm personal sevice by all staff members, to the delicious breakfast.....We wish we could give a ten star recommendation. Our room was called ebony and ivory. This is recommended if you desire a private entry from outside the house as well as... More

This is a really special guesthouse. Our room was really spacious and beautifully decorated. The bed was very comfy and breakfast was lovely. The hostess was really friendly and kindly booked a table for us at Polka (really close by) on our second night. Wished we were staying longer! Would highly recommend this guesthouse.

This is a wonderful place to stay! Comfortable, airy, calm, and stunningly beautiful. The attention to detail is amazing. Super clean and stylish. Great breakfast, nice pool. The location couldn't be better, within walking distance of 2 of the best restaurants in the area. The hosts were warm, welcoming, discreet. Everything was just perfect. I cannot imagine a more perfect... More

This was a cool, calm and stylish place to relax after a blisteringly hot day in the Karoo. The owners are kind and helpful and the pool area is nicely organised with sun loungers and enough shade for those who need it. A beautiful garden and a very pretty breakfast room, too.

This was our second stay at Buiten Verwagten which speaks for our opinion of it by itself. Our hosts were so welcoming and very helpful with suggestions of where to eat, etc. We had a beautiful room, spacious with lovely furnishings and equipped with DSTV and air conditioning, so all the mod cons. I loved the bath towels. They were... More

Staying at Buiten Verwagten Guest house is a true Karoo experience. Stunning rooms, friendly hosts and delicious food. I stay at the guesthouse every 6 weeks and each stay is an absolute pleasure. Professional and homely environment at the same time. Definitely a 5 star rating in anyone's eyes!

We have had a splendid time at Buiten Verwagten!. We felt welcome from the first moment and were treated with hospitality you can only get in this wonderful town.... Our room was beautifully done with furniture that took our breaths away. Thank you to our hosts once again........ We'll be back. The Roux's

As the name suggests, my stay at Buiten Verwagten was truly "beyond expectations" ! From our arrival, we were given a warm and friendly greeting with every concern for our comfort. The rooms themselves are very comfortable, with all the modern conveniences that one would require, such as DSTV (with a very decent bouquet package), air-conditioning, and Wi-Fi connection. As...

Hosts are very helpful and friendly and went out of their way to accommodated us to watch the rugby test of the Springboks versus New Zealand. Chere also booked a table at the nearby Polka Restaurant, which turned out to be an absolute wonderful meal. Breakfast the next morning was very good.
