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.

Can hardly believe such a stylish, welcoming, tranquil guest house exists in the small village of Calitzdorp. We stayed in many lovely places on our Garden Route/R62 trip but felt at our most relaxed here thanks to Andrew & Nell. We arrived later than anticipated after a long day & despite not having pre-booked dinner, Nell saved us having to... More

A haven of peace and tranquility just off the beaten track. Nell and Andrew could not have made us more welcome. Our room was spacious and clean, and Nell's cooking was outstanding. Dinner was exceptional and breakfast beautifully presented. If only it hadn't rained!! Highly recommended and would love to go back for more than one night.

Lovely place to stay. The hosts were most welcoming and friendly and the food was great, especially breakfast. Unfortunately we could only stay one night, but It was one of the best night's sleep of our extended holiday.
