We had the most comfortable stay at Aa'Qtansisi. The bed gave us a great night's sleep and the mosquito net was very welcome on a warm night when we wanted to leave the windows open. We had been recommended a restaurant for dinner, but it was booked out, so the woman that greeted us made us a booking at Polka,...

The hospitality of the owner and staff makes one feel right at home as the owner goes the extra mile in making you feel at home and comfortable. Definitely worth staying at! Thank...

Each room is individual decorated and you can see...

Location excellent with all museums and restaurants in close walking distance. Comfortable rooms, lovely historic feel to the house, excellent breakfasts, complimentary car wash to wash away the dust of adventuring around the area. Friendly and helpful staff. The communal indoors and out are great too. Safe, off road parking and added bonus.

What an amazing place Pierre and his wife have created here. Every room is themed and furnished with lots of love and attention to detail. Little twigs of lavender are attached to all sort of things, giving it a feel of luxury. A relaxing place brought to life by Pierre's passion. Very recommended.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This old Karoo home, circa 1856, has been created into a small boutique-type accommodation centrally situated in Graaff-Reinet, the jewel of the Karoo. Our guesthouse, named Aa’Qtansisi, is derived from the authentic original Khoisan language, meaning "We welcome You." Dating back 350,000 years ago, the Khoisan were the first human inhabitants, in Graaff-Reinet & our town - Graaff-Reinet may well be the Origin of Mankind! Be prepared to be spoiled & delighted with personal attention & unique flavours of decor in each part of this accommodation so that Aa’Qtansisi will become your first choice of accommodation when passing through Graaff-Reinet. ... more   less
