I would suggest that the room numbers are posted next to the doors, so that guests know where their rooms are. We loved the sparkling blue pool and the a la cart restaurant, as well as the friendly staff!

We felt like "royalty" when we stepped into the massive room with a sitting couch, enough place to sprawl yourself on the carpet. Lovely high ceilings!! The choice of food for supper and breakfast was good, and tasty. A jewel of a place in the Karoo.

Excellent service, Our room was clean and very neat, as well as all other facilities.Lovely food. Secure parking. The air-conditioned room was most welcoming after a 500 km trip.Would definitely recommend Karoopark Guest House.

Karoopark Guest House has grown from one house to several properties which have been renovated to suit requirements. Except that the walls are very thick, which leads to a functional, but not pretty renovation. Between the bedrooms and bathroom we had about 3 different floor levels and little natural light, due to the size of the windows. Having said that though, the bedroom was large and the rooms and bathrooms were clean. As we were passing through for only one night, this was adequate. We opted to have dinner in town but left after breakfast the following morning. Friends that we bumped into, said that they had a good dinner at the guest house. Having a small fridge helped us to put drinks in to stay cold and the kettle, tea and coffee on hand were a good start to the day.
A visit to the Valley of Desolation in Graaff-Reinet is a must do activity and gives one a panoramic view over the town and surrounds.

Room Tip: The property is spread out and the rooms as well.

We stayed over at the Karoopark Guest House on our way to Knysna. It was the perfect place to unwind after a long day of travelling. The rooms are a little on the old side, but very clean and comfortable. We also drove around and saw plenty of animals.

We have often stayed over at Karoopark Guest House, and have always found the service, rooms, meals etc to be excellent. However on the night of the 3rd January 2014 when we arrived we received a R110-00 refund and found that we were put into Room 25, which did not accommodate our needs. Firstly the room was very small and was infested with mosquitos and miggies. As we were travelling the next day we needed to keep food and drinks in a fridge and there was no fridge. The shower was blocked and had a foul smell coming from the drain. We ordered dinner for 19h30 and were informed at 18h30 that our dinner was ready to be served. We had stayed over on the 26 December 2014 and everything was excellent. We then asked that the air conditioner be switched on at 15h00 for our stay over on the 3rd January 2014, which was not done. Even though were did inform the staff of these inconveniences, we had no response from them.
However, due to the fact that we have so often stayed overnight at the Karoopark Guest House and have always had excellent service, we shall continue to stay over whenever we are travelling through, just not in Room 25.

Room Tip: Unless you are a single person staying over, and you want to save money, do not stay in room 25.
