“All good. But the SHOWER!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

We stayed here on our way to the Cape. One night in and out.
The room was comfortable. In fact, the bed was superb! Firm mattress, great duvet, even an electric blanket should we need it.
The welcome was warm and then unobtrusive
But the bathroom only had saloon doors (no privacy on the WC) and only had a shower. And what a shower it was! I have stayed in a couple of "interesting" places in my life, but this shower takes the cake. I'm not even sure why they bothered with a shower door.
There was zero water pressure. And what pressure there was got sprayed around the shower stall out of a calcified shower head.
Without exaggerating, it took me 5 minutes just to get my hair wet.
Thank God we were only staying 1 night because that shower would have ruined our entire stay.

Stayed April 2014, traveled as a couple

I travel all around SA and by far this was the best looking guesthouse I had seen. The hint of Victorian coupled with African style really made me feel really at home. The staff and Management were gr8

CapeKaroo Guesthouse managed to combine antique furniture and appliances with a modern and stylish finish in a way that really impresses.
I could not stop smiling at the use of the watering can in the shower, the clever way in which mlik cans were turned into bedside tables and the elegant zinc door that complemented the kitchenette. When walking on the premises one cannot help but to be impressed by the clever and stylish attention to detail in the decoration of the house. I will most definitely return!

Cape Karoo Guest House offers affordable overnight accommodation in Beaufort West, Western Cape. We invite you to come and experience the peace and tranquility of this luxurious bed and breakfast, posed against a backdrop of the Nieuweveld Mountains on-route the N1 to Cape Town/Johannesburg. Cape Karoo Guest house is located in a quiet suburb just outside Beaufort West and we offer secure off-street parking behind locked gates, ensuring a peaceful night rest. Cape Karoo caters for families, business travellers as well as honeymooners searching for accommodation in the heart of the Central-Karoo: Beaufort West.

The main house is an original Sir Herbert Baker, built in 1902 and each garden room has a rich history. We are a small guest house which is owner-operated; therefore we offer individual attention to all of our guests.
