We needed an overnight stop on our way from Cape Town to the Karoo / Eastern Cape and luckily found this gem. Centrally positioned along the main road but set way back to offer peace and quiet, an extremely comfortable and well kept B&B, enthusiastically owned & managed by Elsabe. Large bedroom with plenty of space and a veranda on... More

Great hosts. The rooms were spacious and well kitted out. We had dinner and breakfast in the lodge's dining room. Both meals were tasty and cooked to perfection. To top it all we did not have to pay the whole amount up front. We recommend Karoo Lodge to anyone

Stayed for one night, very good location to walk around the town. Owners very helpful and friendly and retained a good sense humour when trying to put up travel cot for our 21 mth old, which was a struggle. Food was good, with some nice choices on the menu, breakfast also fine. Rooms nice with outside seating, and lovely gardens... More

Arrived really late and got a friendly welcome, Room was large with a huge comfortable bed. Little oasis of a place with extensive gardens. Breakfast used local produce and was excellent. Elsabe was incredibly helpful, would definitely stay again if ever back in PA.

Although we were unable to stay at this lovely lodge as it was fully booked, we had made reservations for dinner by E mail. We were treated to a scrumptious meal,the service was excellent and we were made to feel so welcome on a rather chilly night. A must on anyone's to do list if they visit Prince Albert.

George and Elsabe are wonderful hosts. The food was so good that we had dinner both nights of our stay. Our rooms were spacious, comfortable and clean. We cannot wait to return and we are recommending the Karoo Lodge to all our customers and friends!

My wife and I had a very pleasant stay at the Karoo lodge, we found the rooms to be clean and well appointed,just as advertised. The people are very friendly and made good suggestions of what to do and where to eat whilst we were in Prince Albert. The lodge is well situated and we were able to walk to... More

I don't know where the last reviewer was staying, but it can't have been at the same Karoo Lodge in Prince Albert where we spent a night last Friday. On arrival we were met by Elsabe, who showed us to our two rooms. Each room was huge, comfortable and clean, with TV and tea / coffee making facilities and reverse... More

Arriving at the Karoo Lodge it was evident the place had seen better days, entering our room the same could be said of all the bedding and fittings - a piece of lace material used as a lamp shade!!! - the bedding probably dates back from the seventies so thin and worn-out you could read your newspaper through it.

Karoolodge, Manager at Karoo Lodge, responded to this review

Wow!!! It is said that constructive criticism should be taken seriously and that one need to learn from it. Comments and reviews by the same writer, applying to his/her stay at Karoo Lodge and other Guesthouses, bring the witty sayings of Oscar Wilde in perspective when he refers to "Cynical". A wider application could be found in the online dictionary.... More
