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... More

On a recent trip through the Tankwa we made our regular refuel, refresh stop in Calvinia. As older people we have "special" needs and all our needs were catered for. We wanted to braai, we wanted to swim and we wanted a view over the village and we got it all on the pool deck above reception. One does not... More

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)

The bedroom-accommodation is satisfactorily. The dining-room, though, could do with a revised Klein-Karoo Lifestyle instead of the European-reindeer theme. ( A lifestyle of compound birds' nest and flowering aloes - something typical yet exotic of your immediate environment will enhance the dinning-room atmosphere.)

I do not know the area but was surprised with the helpfulness at reception after a long working day a person is looking for no nonsense service. Food was fair. Although not staying in the hotel itself but at the lodge, staff was helpful and friendly

Considering it is a small town I did not have huge expectation but then again it is the go-to place for accommodation when in the area so I expected a decent offering of services.

Hotel is old, yet clean and organized. Food was good and the service ok. Wine list and quality surprisingly good. Room huge and comfortable. Staff in general friendly. Parking can be better. Value for money.
