Spent an evening here and was very impressed with the management of the hotel. Very professional and organized, and helpful. I would definitely return.

Room Tip: I walked around and looked at several of the rooms, they all looked good to me.

120 Year old country hotel under renovation and improvement located at the main street junction in Barrydale, a charming, relatively still unspoiled small town on Route 62 between Worcester and Oudtshoorn. We were warmly welcomed by the Staff and given good clean accomodation. The attached 'Mez" restaurant offered an excellent Mediterranean/Turkish menu. The adjacent Belanti former cinema when fully renovated promises an interesting additional facility for entertainment, weddings and specialised promotions. This country hotel development augurs well for additional employment opportunities for local people as well as raising the town's development profile. All-in-all a very pleasant,reasonably priced and attractive interlude in our busy lives!

Room Tip: Street facing rooms were quite noisy early in the day but eased off as the morning progressed.

What a surprise to find the most wonderful venue for live music at this charming hotel. An old adjoining cinema has been revamped and is the prefect spot. The spacious stage allows the band plenty of room to strut its stuff.
But surely the audience was the greatest treat. Many interesting and enthusiastic local people came out for the event and a large surprising number of visitors made it to this wonderul new venue for the opportunity of seeing their favourite band in the comfort and ease of the country.
What a treat!

It is indeed a privilege to have the old town cinema ,the historic Belanti cinema hall , as part of the hotel premises! We have restored it and now use it as venue for live music gigs, weddings and conferences. We are planning to convert the gallery into a small intimate movie theatre and soon will start showing movies there again. Please visit us again some time!

What a stunning surprise!We spent a weekend at this little gem and had a wonderful time. Interior designed, filled with works of art and staff that go out of their way to make the experience enjoyable. There's that personal touch that people in the country have that makes you feel at home and no request is too much. And the food was excellent, also with a sense that it was made "at home" , just for us.
Barrydale was a revelation- filled with flowers, beautiful scenery and interesting creative locals. We're going back soon!

Room Tip: Room 13 is a treat, really alternative.
