The staff were very friendly and helpful as I booked a room. They were very accommodating to my specific circumstances and did not hesitate to adapt their normal routine to make sure that I am sorted. I can really recommend them for a great night's rest and delicious breakfast.

The "sub-standard" door is on schedule to be replaced. Our gate is closed, but is only locked at 11h00. Staff are moving around the premises all the time. Opening and closing the gate is also clearly audible in staff quarters. History has proven that mentioned procedures is sufficient, because no issues has been reported to date.

A very pleasant stay with very good food and the best bed to sleep in. We will surely recommend Calvinia Hotel to anybody travelling through the Northern Cape. We really received great value for money.

The fruit juice can that caused the cup to stuck to the saucer was still there when we cleaned the room...

Its the second year in a row that we visit Calvinia on our way to Cape Town. The hotel really lacks plenty. The restaurant area is dirty. We were handed the menu and after we ordered, the waiter returned to tell us that what we ordered is not available. We are literally getting the scraps left in the kitchen. The...

We are in Calvinia. We only get deliveries once a week. We do sometimes run out of certain items that sells faster than anticipated. It is impossible for us to get our orders 100% every time. If we sometimes do not have a client's first choice in stock, we still prepare the second choice to our high standards. There is...

We drove from CT to Calvinia to pick up a family member. I wanted a break from the city. The hotel let me check in early, took a nice air-conditioned snooze and enjoyed lunch and supper in the bar, watching good and bad rugby. Even though it was just 1 day, the hotel and staff offered everything I wanted. Good...
