An extended home in a quiet garden the spacious and comfortable accommodation is exceptionally good. Elsabe and George are the perfect hands-on hosts who make guests feel that they are part of the family without being intrusive. George is an accomplished chef so the catering is great. We plan return to Prince Albert to take photographs locally and will undoubtedly... More

Louise and I have been visiting Prince Albert every year for the past 4 years. For the last 3 years we have stayed with Elsabe and George at Karoo Lodge. This past weekend we took 4 couples with us because we knew that we could expect the same level of service we have always enjoyed on previous visits. Great, clean,... More

I stayed there for 1 night and what a lovely B+B. A good location if you want to walk around town. My room was very spacious and comfortable and the hosts so friendly and helpful. They made me feel very welcome. Nice big breakfast. Definitely recommended.

We went to Karoo Lodge in Prins Albert again. This time for a wonderful family reunion. And as always, our stay was great. The owners were very kind, helpful and knowledgeable. The food was great as was the service. The rooms were oh so clean. I just love the bathrooms and everything about the place. Will definitely visit again!

Spending the evening with George & Elisabeth made us feel like we are home. The rooms are spacious with all the creature comforts you need. Waking up on a crisp winter morning, hearing the birds singing in the many trees in the area, you can easily be mistaken for thinking you have just woken up on a beautiful Karoo farm!... More

Karoo Lodge is well known as a guest house and have stayed there many times over the years, so I may be biased in my review. However George's culinary skills is somewhat of an insider's secret - once you have experienced his signature dish of slow cooked braised whole lamb neck you will never forget it !

I was travelling for work and stayed at the Karoo Lodge for five nights, from Sunday to Friday – one of the best hospitality experiences I have ever had. My room en-suite was large and spacious, the king-sized bed very comfortable (with two mohair blankets offered by Elsabe) and the shower non-slip and ingenious, all conveniences including Wifi and DeskSpace...

Lovely B&B in the heart of Prince Albert. Our host Elsabe and her family were welcoming and the spacious en suite rooms were well - equipped and comfy. Generous breakfast served with a personal touch every morning. We stayed 3 nights and had a fun, relaxing time. Will definitely return.
