The staff made us feel so welcome and were so helpful. We really had a good nights sleep because it was so quiet and peaceful. After a long day on the road this was an oasis in the desert. We were able to hit the road refreshed and well fed.

Tired after a hot cycle day I was really happy to be welcome and stay at this great place. The peaceful garden inspires to relax on o e of the little benches or to write an entire book. There is a nice little pool as well as sunbeds. Thanks for the great hospitality and the excellent breakfast!

A high quality Bed & Breakfast with excellent facilities in a great location on Route 62. The woman in charge and her daughter were absolutely charming and helpful. The welcoming glass of local port was much appreciated.

Karoo Life B&B in a little town on the famous Route 62 in the Western Cape, South Africa was a very good find. Rooms are reasonable with all you need for a short stopover (I suggest at least 2 days) and the breakfast is the best I've had in a very long time - mainly because of the service. I...
