What a stunning guesthouse. Set amongst the vineyards with views across the Swartberg. Beautiful and most comfortable room and the house itself was stunning. Nell and Andrew are lovely hosts and we strongly recommend staying home for dinner. Nell is an outstanding cook.10/10.

A tranquil, really comfortable and spacious house with long views of the typical Karoo farm landscape and a genuine feel. Nell's cooking stood out as one of the best meals we have had - it had been a hot day, we did not feel like a large many-course dinner and she produced a snack platter of various delicious vegetables and...

A charming location, well-appointed room, congenial hosts and delicious breakfast made this a memorable stay. Plus a challenging but beautiful cycling route into the mountains. Only one minor gripe: needs more TV channels!

When in Calitzdorp, this is the place to be! Warm and friendly staff, great in-house dinners (which where absolute top-class, big thanks to Nell) and nice and luxury rooms. We stayed here for just one day, too short when thinking back. Would definately come back and stay here again. Highly recommended!

This place has the charm and elegance from the days when people still required stately elegance and comfort. You walk into another world when you first step through the front door, you are greeted by none other than the owner Andrew and you immediately feel welcome and at home. You immediately feel the warmth of the place and the decorations... More
