“Overnight stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Had a two bedroom unit as the other singles were occupied. Both rooms had en suite bathroom, main room with a shower and bath. Single beds in both rooms, duvet, blanket, throw and a hot water bottle. Very hot water for showering, modern bathrooms, beds, but antique type furniture. Fully equipped for self catering, but no stove - plates, mugs, etc. and an excellent breakfast (full) for very little money, served in our own place. Brilliant. Secure parking. Need to perhaps look at the gate entrance for the vehicles coz it is a pain to have to unlock the gate padlock, although not a security risk. Friendly helpful service by Helen, the manager.

Room Tip: In quiet area, so slept well.

We stayed here for two nights while we experienced the surrounding area.

The room was perfectly spacious, with self catering facilities like a fridge etc. The TV however was very small, with just SABC and E channels, and far from the bed. The gardens around the rooms are beautiful and Judy encourages you to pluck ripe delicious oranges straight from the trees.

Breakfast was excellent, with Judy making sure everything was cooked to your taste, the borewors were especially good. She is an excellent proprietor, friendly and easily accessible when you need her, with all the information that you could want about the sleepy little town of Graaf-Reinet, and not around when you don't.

All in all a very pleasant stay.

We only spend here one night on the road trip from Drakensberg to Port Elisabeth. But what a suprise. Clean, specious, and nice staff.

We booked incl a breakfast which was geat but you should not miss Polka. So if you in town for just one dag, sleep at Rothman and have coffee and pie (or breakfast/lunch) at polka.

Room Tip: we stayed in room No. 1. But i'm sure all the rooms are great.

4 Rothman street is run by Zorb and Judy Caryer who have been resident in Graaff Reinet for years and are keen bird watchers. It s situated in a quiet secure neighbourhood with great views of the mountain. The rooms are surrounded by well kept lush gardens. There are several units but the one we stayed in was superb incorporating 2 double bedrooms with bathroom on suite, a lounge, kitchen with fridge and microwave (a fully fitted kitchen with stove, dishwasher etc is next door). Just outside the front door is a huge tree that provides that most valued of commodities in the karoo-shade. There are braai facilities. Everything is spotlessly clean and the staff, led by Helen are efficient, courteous and polite. The welcome is warm but the value is outstanding. .You get a lot of bang for your buck.
There is a small shop and by arrangement simple home cooked meals can be ordered that can simpl be heated up in the micro for those arriving weary after a long journey.

Room Tip: Have a chat with Judy or Zorb. They will go out of their way to facilitate your every need.

This is the perfect stop when driving between Cape Town and Joburg, or better yet, if you have time to explore the charming town of Graaf-Reinet and the rugged but beautiful surrounds of the Valley of Desolation. I arrived late and the owners were waiting for me, showing me to a room that was more like a private apartment that surpassed my expectations given the price. Everything was spotless, there were drinks and milk in the fridge, cereal for breakfast, etc... I took a dip in the wonderful pool, so nice after the long drive from Cape Town. The next morning I was able to see the beautiful indigenous gardens and ended up spending time talking to the owners before heading off to Joburg. I felt so much at home, and although I had other plans, opted to stay here again on my way back to Cape Town from Joburg. I was given another room, just as spacious, just as clean. I could have easily spent more time exploring the area (owners very helpful with tips) including Nieu Bethesda and the Owl House (a must), swimming in the pool, or relaxing in their gardens. Judging from all the comments in the guest book I was not the only one who was taken by this b and b. I will most definitely be back. Cannot beat the price for what you get.

The self-catering unit was large (2 bedrooms, large open-plan lounge, dining room, fully fitted kitchen with microwave only).

The owner was friendly and helpful.

The bathroom was not as clean as it could have been and the sheets were covered in hair and grass. A bit dodgy!

Not the cheapest as cheaper accommodation could be found via the Graaff-Reinet accommodation website.
