Host curt and unwelcoming.Room was dark and dingy,shower area badly needs an upgrade,breakfast was poor bacon and sausage overcooked rest of meal was only just warm.Pool was good but towels were like sandpaper.Only good thing about our trip was Portugueese Restaurant in the town which was really good and value for money.

We stayed one night. Room was fine but electrics really need some work. The bathroom light switch is at the door with room light. Socket for kettle is too far away and kettle can only be used on floor. Hairdryer could only be used after pulling out bedside table. Pierre was businesslike rather than hospitable and did not take kindly... More

Beautifully refurbished old building with a very pleasant location, pool and large garden. Our room and bathroom was fairly basic but very clean and nicely furnished. The internal walls are rather thin. The owner is lacking in social skills, is almost unpleasant and has lots of rules.

A very nice Klein Karoo stop-over. We stayed 2 nights as we don't like moving each night--but one would have been enough. The pool, rose garden and wine trellis were lovely, and the walk into town a nice way to 'feel ' the vicinity. We got booked for a standard room which was a bit too rustic for me--no AC... More

Chose this as a one night stop on Route 62 on the way from Plettenberg Bay to Cape Town. Rooms are quirky but clean and comfortable, the garden, terrace and pool are beautifully kept, and breakfast was superb. Calitzdorp is a interesting little town, the centre of SA's port industry, and its wineries are well worth a visit. We walked... More

We stayed unfortunately only one night at Portwine Guesthouse, so we would certainly like to come back. It is a bed and breakfast accommodation and both are exellent. We came all the way from Denmark.

This will be our 4 th visit since 2003 to the Port Wine House in Calitzdorp. We love the rural atmosphere of this Little Karoo town, surrounded by magnificent mountains. The guest house is beautiful and the garden and pool area is lovely and wonderful for relaxing on a hot January day. Pierre the owner met us at the car... More

We spent one night at The Port Wine Guesthouse. It is situated in a quiet end of the street facing a vineyard. It has great general use areas including a swimming pool, large outdoor terrace and great lounge area - and the garden is beautifully kept. The room we were in was not large but really clean and the quiet... More
