As you arrive at this wonderful B&B the first you'll notice is the utter tranquility, the view will wash away any lingering stress you may have! Andrew and Nel welcome you like old friends, and take such good care of you, you'll not want for anything, other than perhaps a second portion of one of their delightful meals!

Hi Nel and Andrew. Just a quick note of thanks for 2 wonderful evenings at your stunning Country House. Nel, once again thanks for the wonderful lamb chops for supper and the general feel of being welcome and at home in beautiful surroundings. Not sure where your guest caburke1970 stayed? My family and friends will be back soon and I... More

We stayed in a stunning hotel in Stellenbosch for the same price but afraid this hotel did not impress at all. I looked at the web site and the reviews again and thought I had stayed at a different hotel. The photos didn't portray the dark and dingy lounge and dining room. Didn't show the bright blue plastic table cloths... More

I am sorry and surprised to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. Strange that you decided to give us a bad rating without raising any of the issues whilst you were here. Maybe your unsuccessful dispute over our bill prompted this review, which in my opinion is unfair and way of the mark. We, however, take... More

We had a lovely stay at Calitzdorp Country House. Owners Andrew and Nellie Rogers are fantastic hosts, and offer great service and mouth watering food. They are both registered tour guides, and give valuable advice for exploring the vineyards and natural beauty the area has to offer. This area is home to some of the best Port wines in the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our venture into the country and Andrew and Nell's professional yet friendly and welcoming attention made us feel at home. The room was beautifully furnished and decorated - as is the whole house - with our own private patio and beautiful bathroom. We loved our evening sundowners on the main patio chatting to Andrew and Nell and... More

This is an oasis of unexpected luxury among the vineyards. The rooms and bathrooms are large and well appointed,. The hosts, Andrew and Nel, live on the premises and Nel does the cooking. We had a fantastic dinner, and just managed to fit in a magnificent breakfast, before tackling the Swartberg pass.(The extra ballast was useful on the hairpin bends)... More

We were warmly welcomed and made very cool and comfortable despite the extreme heat (42 degrees) in Calitzdorp on the day of our visit. Andrew and Nell are expert, professional and friendly hosts. Dinner and breakfast were delicious, the rooms were elegant and well appointed, the garden and views of the vineyards delightful. Couldn't have asked for more.

Great hosts in Andrew and Nell. Located just outside calitzdorp main part which is preferable and a great view across a small valley. Pool and aircon made a big difference with c. 38 degree daytime temp. Big plus is the food - no need to go to restaurants etc. Can quiet happily stay at Country House and no need to... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Calitzdorp Country House and found the room to be very spacious and comfortable. Andrew and Nell are most gracious and welcoming and we opted for dinner as well for one of the nights which was wonderful! Breakfast was plentiful and delicious too.
