There are so many wonderful things to say about this place and the sweet owners George and Elsabe. We really felt at home here. First, this is an amazing couple! They are so hospitable and made us feel really welcomed. They were quick to give us suggestions on things to do and see in the Karoo and answered any question... More

I was somewhat underwhelmed when we arrived at Karoo Lodge. However, that very quickly changed when we were welcomed and shown to our spacious, comfortable and well appointed room. We had dinner at the lodge and George's cooking was superb ! We can recommend the lamb neck ! The meal was priced very reasonably with generous portions. They also have... More

Hi Tony & Sandy, I do not often land on this page to check on reviews but better late than never. It had been a pleasure to host colleagues from many years ago and brought back fond memories of some really good times. Reflecting also brought back memories of those who passed on and a wondering of what happened to... More

We booked for 2 nights at Karoo Lodge in Prince Albert. We had the end room with a lovely view of the garden. Elsabe brought us some milk so we could have tea on our arrival as we had driven up from Knysna. There is a fridge in the room and air conditioning. We drove up through Meringspoort and back...

It is always people who make the experience special. Such is the case with this wonderful establishment in Prince Albert. Great location, outstanding B&B, best menu and food in town, all made possible by George and Elsabie's warm and personal touch. Highly recommended for local and international visitors. Will certainly be back. Alun, Marion and family

On the positive side huge bedrooms, comfy beds, quiet and pleasant gardens. On the negative faulty wifi which was an issue with teenage kids. Wifi is promised but was not delivered. When I asked to remedy the problem I was met with an indifferent and frosty attitude. So very disappointing because we loved the place to begin with. We probably... More

Hi Venessa As explained to you concerning the WiFi signal in your suite. Telkom who supplied our D-Link receiver and Netgear N600 Booster, also the supplier of the signal service , confirm that they experience weak signal in Prince Albert due to normal copper telephone lines being used (Prince Albert is not served with Optical Feed ), in particular when...
