What a wonderful place to stay to break your journey. We stayed in a two bedroom cottage with kitchen. Everything was spotless. Linen crisp and fresh. You must order their dinner. Lamb chops, potato salad, grreen salad. Home made bread. Fresh milk. Loads of tea and coffee. Unbelievable value for money

A great stay with personal attention after a long day on the road. The braai pack and braai facilities made for a relaxing evening under the Karoo stars! The accommodation basic, but clean and well kept.

As always it is a treat staying with Marene & Lynette. Lockdown has been tough on us all but it was a breath of fresh air to get to that beautiful part of the world and relax again. I will always go back to Morning Glory and thank them for their amazing hospitality. A special thank you to Mr Van Der Walt for taking my 17 month old daughter to meet the lambs, she absolutely loved it!! Good luck and many more years of great success!

We had a really good overnight stop at Morning Glory cottages. Everything we needed was provided to a high standard. The pre-prepared dinner was excellent as was also the breakfast the next morning. Congratulations to Lynette and her team.

Location perfect, friendly service, prompt replies. The chalet was well equipped and everything in good order. A mattress upgrade will be a bonus. Roads are for good clearance vehicles, but we love dirt roads so didn't mind
