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.

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 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...

Hotel is very comfortable with friendly staff. Food is excellent. We requested a family room for my wife and I and 2 year old daughter. Unfortunately throughout the first night the weekend guests/visitors made the surrounding area outside our room too noisy to sleep. (Local sports event visitors)
