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.

Nice town, nice people and friendly hospitality. Wherever you go, people in town are courteous and friendly. Town is also clean. Good choice of restaurants, with good menu options. Prices are tourist based and relatively expensive.

We booked the room and when we arrived they suddenly wanted to double the price. The place also looked old and dirty, so obviously not worth the double fee. I contacted booking.com to report then and they said they will pay my money back, so i got a wonderful nee guest house for
