What a treat to be surrounded by the Karoo vistas and to be hosted by such friendly hosts. the Calitzdorp Country House exudes a peace that instantly makes one relax and soak up the fresh air. Attention to detail is the name of the game at this wonderful, luxurious but unpretentious establishment. The food, wine and company were superb and... More

Sometimes you arrive at unusual places by the most roundabout routes ..... One of these is Calitzdorp Country House. The views are magnificent ( the mountains in the Klein Karoo) , the hosts are friendly and welcoming, the rooms are beautiful .... Best of all - the food is outstanding. We will be back!!

We found this lovely country house by chance, after searching Calitzdorp unsuccessfully for a decent cup of coffee. Despite being unexpected visitors we were warmly greeted and served not only excellent coffee but also a fabulous breakfast, including a home baked gluten free bread that was so tasty it remains one of the high points of the whole holiday. The... More

Faced with a cottage in Calitzdorp that was unfit for habitation, at a time when the the village was packed with visitors to the annual Port and Wine Festival, we were lucky enough to find that there'd been a cancellation at the Calitzdorp Country House. It's a spacious, comfortable country mansion, run as a guesthouse and managed at that time... More

Friendly hosts enjoyed in a relaxed environment in which one felt spoilt. Lovely outside view. Excellent dinner and breakfast. All this centred around a extremely comfortable room with all the pleasures one would hope for.

We spend a night at this lovely guesthouse on the edge of Calitzdorp. The rooms were very well appointed and every detail was seen too. The owners were very helpful and hospitable and we would definitely recommend this guesthouse to everyone. Thank you again. H+R

Accomodation is first class, the people friendly and responsive to your every need be it a special breakfast request, advice on what to do who to see or joining us for supper in town at their favourite restaurant. Particularly enjoyed the first coffee... More

Under new ownership and currently being looked after by the parents of the owners, this a great place to stay in the area. The food is good and plentiful. Our room with a paio was comfortable after a long drive. Would definitely stay again.

This guesthouse was built for and designed by the current owners, and their care and attention to detail was evident throughout our stay. They have clearly loved their project over the past eight years. It's situated 2km from Calitzdorp. We had a large ensuite bedroom with private patio, which was spotless. They have an outside pool, and beautiful gardens with... More

The rooms spacious and well furnished. We did not... More
