This must be my very favourite hotel ever! Totally unexpected motel style B & B in the lovely sleepy but simultaneously funky village of Barrydale in the Klein Karoo.Leon and Dennis are the warmest of hosts, without being in any way intrusive. We have stayed here twice & by the end of our second stay they felt like old friends.The bar, the outside dining area, the rooms are all quirky & utterly unlike anywhere else. You simply have to experience this place. And incredibly good value especially by European standards, but also when compared to other SA B & Bs.
