This self catering accommodation can be recommended for an overnight or extended stay. The owners are very friendly and most helpful. The rooms are fairly large with comfortable beds, extremely clean and each has a separate lounge/kitchen area and the bathroom is adequate with a shower only. They also boast a lovely splash pool. We will most certainly visit again.

Had to book at last minute's notice. Could not have chosen a better place to stay. Cooled down in the splash pool, spacious room, friendly and knowledgeable hosts, well situated and good value for money. Best place to explore the surroundings, including the Swarberg Pass.

Karoo Rust is on a side street off the main road so is nice and quiet. The facilities were high quality and the friendly hosts go the extra mile with fresh milk in the fridge, tea, coffee, cereal and great advice on places to go and routes to take. The units have a bedroom, smallish but nicely appointed bathroom and...

My family and I were doing a trip through the Karoo on the second weekend in October 2016. We were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Karoo Rust in Prince Albert. Everything was extremely clean, comfortable and well organised. I would have no issue with staying there again HOWEVER the B&B is poorly constructed. Thus, if you are placed...

I stopped off in Prince Albert, on a business trip and decided to look for a B&B rather than the Hotel. Was glad I found this spot, as it offers good value and comfortable fixtures. Considering I was fighting off flu and rather grumpy the warm welcome was what I needed to feel at home. The position of the establishment...

Thank you for accommodating us at such late notice. A perfect overnight stop. Clean, comfortable and just perfect for what we needed.

What a well designed and excellent establishment. The welcoming sherry on a cold evening was well received and enjoyed. All the utensils fit the furnishing and the furnishing complements the the space and makes the visitor feels part of the town immediately. I really think the accommodation is what a self-catering unit should have to the last detail.

Delightful accommodation in the heart of Prince Albert. Close to shops and restaurants. Beautifully finished with tasteful Karoo touches. Clean and spacious with very comfortable beds. Enjoyed the small touches - port on the table, tea, coffee and cereal in the kitchen.
