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.

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.

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

We decided to spend a night in Calitzdorp to do some Port tasting. We are very glad that we did, we discovered the most fantastic boutique hotel and only wish that we could stay for longer. We will definitely go back.

We were not disappointed in our choice to spend a week at The Calitzdorp Country House. We used it as our base to explore the immediate region with the majestic mountain passes, the picturesque friendly Karoo towns, and the many scenic drives all of which was food for the soul. Every morning a sumptuous yet elegant breakfast awaited us on... More
