“Great place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2012

A wonderful old house, with beautifully decorated and spacious rooms. All mod cons, despite the age of the house. Comfortable and well kept. Friendly and efficient. A lovely stay in the 'star' capital of SA.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2011

I thought this B&B was so good that I asked for it to be set up on Trip Advisor, so this is the first review. I just loved the breakfast – meat, meat and more meat – a typical Little Karoo breakfast – I had everything (you will be offered something called a skilpaadjie (liver wrapped intestine) – I ate the liver (absolutely wonderful, but cut away the intestine!!!). Sounds off-putting but it really is worth a try).

We stayed in Aries Suite, but had booked Taurus some 6 months earlier; considering the place was empty for night 1 (full for nights 2 & 3) this was the only disappointment. Why; having, been shown around Aries (name on the suite’s main door) I pointed out that this was not the room booked (we were given a "tale" why we were not in Taurus) and was offered a switch; we stayed in Aries (much bigger bed!!!).

The bedroom was large and the living room likewise; really lovely environment for 3 days in Sutherland; the back of beyond (but we were there for the stargazing); we drove 110 km and only saw 4 cars during the trip there. There is not a lot to do in Sutherland, but the time passed quickly and after 3 days we felt we had met everyone.

Brilliant restaurant down the 1 main road (the only one with tarmac); ate there every evening; lamb shanks to die for (the service is actually quaint)!!! Cannot remember its name but it is probably the only worthwhile restaurant in town (did not find anywhere else that looked remotely open); in fact the whole town felt shut – but that is the fun of the place.

Not sure that we will ever go back to Sutherland; if we did we would stay in Skitterrland B&B.
