Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 28, 2013


We had the privileged of staying over at the Karoo Pandok guesthouse in Bethulie on our way to Capetown from Johannesburg in October 2012.

We were treated like royalty.

The food were delicious, traditional and very generousness portions.

The rooms are cozy, clean and beautifully furnished and decorated.
Bed linen, towels and mattresses were clearly all well kept and fairly new.

Owner Louis took us to the Orange river bridge for Sun-downers and snacks (4 min drive on the back of his truck)

We went on a historical tour organised by Karoo Pandok Guesthouse. It was so informative.

Nothing was too much to ask for Louis and the other staff and we will definitely be back next year!!!

ps Next time we will visit in the winter so we can start up the old antique Cole stove in the kitchen.

Charming little B&B in the the Karoo! We booked the Farmers Cottage and stayed over for one night on route to Port Alfred. We made the booking and did tell the booking agent that we will be bringing our little puppy (scottie) along for the stay. We received a warm welcome on arrival together with a clean cottage. The reason for the low score on value is for the "braai pack" we ordered on the day - the quality of the meat was not worth the price. Bring your own meat along and have a braai under the Karoo stars with a bottle of red or two. Also pre plan what time you'll be leaving, breakfast only gets served from 8am and we missed out on the B&B package.

Room Tip: Book the Farmers Cottage - well worth the price
