My wife and I cannot recommend the Calitzdorp Country House highly enough. The setting overlooking the beautiful garden, the vineyards and he mountains off in the distance is spectacular. The facilities are absolutely top class, as is Nell's cuisine. And finally, Nell's and Andrew's hospitality could not be warmer or more considerate. Andrew emailed us before our arrival to ensure...

We as a family are always keen to spread our family trip over two days. We love the adventure of experiencing new towns and the hospitality they have to offer. Appreciating the finer things in life, and being that this was our yearly family trip, I googled the accommodation as a stopover to our week in Plett. Yes there was... More

At Calitzdorp Country House we are always happy to accept constructive criticism and we make every effort to continually learn and improve on our service. So, we are intrigued by your comment that “The accommodation was fair, but very basic”; as the rooms all have King-size extra length beds, bedside tables and lamps, a dressing table, two comfy chairs, a...

We loved our stay at Calitzdorp Country House. Andrew and Nel were excellent hosts and the dinner and breakfast were great. We had a wonderful spacious room with a view of the vineyards. Will definitely be back

Calitzdorp Country House is a hidden gem in the valley. We travelled to Calitzdorp from Vredenburg to attend a work summit. Upon arrival, Andrew and staff ensured that we were comfortable after the long drive. The staff are very friendly, the rooms spacious and beautifully decorated, and the food is delicious! I will definitely return for the sunset view from... More

While driving to Calitzdorp Country House for the first time, we wondered if we were in the right place.It felt as if we were in the middle of nowhere. Inside we found a comfortable and welcoming place with great views of the surrounding countryside..Andrew, the owner, was really friendly and helpful. On the night we stayed, his wife cooked a...

It seems odd to have a luxury lodge in a small town like Calitzdorp, but this is an excellent choice if you are visiting anything in the region: Cango Caves, the mountain passes, the wine farms or Route 62. The air-conditioned rooms are huge, with big bathrooms with full shower and corner bath. Being a little out of town it... More

What an awesome, awesome place to stay at. Stayed over for one night and truly the most friendliest service from the owners. A must for all passing through the town. Great service, stunning views and most comfortable facilities available. Thanks for a great stay over. Damian (Northlink college)

Our road trip along and around the Western Cape delivered several first-class overnight stops. Back home now, we reflect on how impressed we were at the overall standard of accommodation. However the Calitzdorp Country House is up there with the best of the best. Ignore it at your peril. Pass by at your own risk. Don't ever say 'you should... More

Off the beaten track in a small town. Great hospitality from the hosts Andrew and Nell. Would strongly recommend the evening meal. Comfortable accommodation with a patio. Large swimming pool in the grounds.
