We selected this overnight spot by pure chance through the internet having previously been very disappointed by poor accommodation in Colesberg town itself. It was absolutely perfect with comfortable, well appointed rooms and a cosy bar and dining room. I would never stay anywhere else when travelling to Capetown.

This was our stop over on a road trip to Cape Town, my daughter who is horse crazy loved the idea of sleeping in converted stables. July is very cold in Colesburg but our room which was a family room that accommodated all 5 of us was so warm and quaint. The bathroom in the family room is tiny but... More

It's 1/2-way between Joburg or Durban, and Cape Town. So a perfect location for a one or two night stand. You'll stay in beautiful little cottages named for (I think) the owner's horses. You're way out in the country and fortunately you'll be served a delicious dinner and the usual hearty breakfast. Horses everywhere. And because it's a family business,... More

Greeted by the smiling Patricia and warm Karoo afternoon sun! A beautiful place to revive your senses and enjoy true farm hospitality. Rooms were wonderfully comfortable and surprisingly warm on a clear cold Karoo night - dinner was delicious and the wine selection a pleasant surprise. Enjoyed with my family and good friends!

Stayed at Kuilfontein as a half way stop en route to Joburg. Would definitely recommend them. Staff was super friendly and helpfull (especially Patricia), rooms were 5 star, so comforting to arrive in a heated room on a very cold Karoo night. Dinner was well prepared in a cosy dining room as was the breakfast - cekebrating all the lovely... More

What a wonderful find in the heart of the Karoo! I stayed over for one night on my way home, but one could easily spend a few days on this beautiful farm and enjoy the tranquility and peace so unique to this part of South Africa. The sunset on the evening of my visit was absolutely breathtaking The facilities and... More

Very well appointed stables (now chalets) where we stayed for (sadly) one night only on our way to the Cape. Evelyn was most welcoming and our chalet was 'just what the doctor ordered!' after a long drive from JHB. Warm, comfortable, clean and homely with a fully equipped kitchenette. We had pre-ordered dinner and can recommend the lamb casserole and... More

Beautifully appointed old stables, turned into chalets. Looking out over the miles and miles of open landscape, with colourful "Koppies" in the distance. Don't forget to order your "Karoo" Braaipack, witth chops, sosatie, boerewors, buns and salads, for under R100 pp!! Karoolamb at its best!

This was an overnight stay for us and not knowing what to expect were pleasantly surprised by the sheer uniqueness and a step back in time experience we had. Expect the stable rooms to be just that but with well thought out decor and comforts. The courtyard is filled with soft sounds of rattling windmills, cats mewing, dogs pitter patter... More
