My son and I just returned from a great African adventure that included a self drive working our way from Cape Town to Johannesburg incorporating many of the sites along the well known Garden Route. We decided to include an easy detour into the Little Karoo area via the R62 to sample port wines, traverse the Swartberg pass and visit... More

Comfortable and homely accom. Very friendly hosts - Andrew and Nel. Sadly didn't have a chance to sample Nel's cooking - other than the excellent breakfast. In winter the planned woodburner would be a plus. Thanks for a memorable stay!

CCH is a lovely boutique hotel with all the necessary extras to make one's weekend a memory. Together with the spacious and beautiful rooms, the superb breakfasts, exceptional views and the entertaining owners, one can only relax and wind down during the stay. a little gem in the Klein-karoo

EXcellant accommodation in all respects. Hosts extremely helpful and friendly. Room was generous in size and very well kitted out. Lovely wholesome breakfasts. Great location, very close to town, but on the side of hill overlooking beautiful valley.

This is best described as "home away from home" in the true sense of the words.Here one experiences the real meaning of words like; "warm service, world-class standards, scrumptious breakfasts, great hosts - always at your service, welcoming atmosphere, great views and close to everything but far enough away to qualify as a peaceful country escape". Definitely not our last... More

We were travelling as two couples and all of our B&B stays in South Africa were excellent. However, if we had to pick one that stood above the rest, the Calitzdorp Country House would take the prize. Outside of the common amenities you look for in a B&B (discussed further in this review), this guest house has 2 additional attributes... More

Overnight accommodation at Country House was 17 hours of pleasure. The House and room I had were beautifully furnished and provided for with lovely antiques, tasteful yet homely. The hosts were engaging, interested in me and making me feel very welcome, spending time with me discussing the area and our different experiences. I felt I left there having made new... More

Warm reception, hearty meals and well appointed rooms. However, the tranquility of the beautiful surrounds is just blissful. This is where one can stay a couple of days finding yourself. Thank you, Nell and Andrew for sharing this peace of heaven with us !!

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...
