“What a lovely experience!”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

My dad and I decided to spend the night at Die Tuishuise while travelling from Durban to Cape Town. I suggested we booked another night and spend a day in Cradock. As we arrived we knew it was a good decision.

The receptionist was warm and helpful at our late arrival. We were then escorted across the road to one of the generously spacious houses where we would be staying.

The large bed was comfortable and the bedroom stylishly furnished. We also enjoyed a cozy dining room, lounge and a well equipped kitchen.

We were able to park our car off the street and under weighted grapefruit and lemon trees, ready for picking.

The next two mornings we enjoyed a delicious breakfast of yogurt, croissants, muffins, meats, eggs and bacon and a salmon pastry.

We spent the day wandering the quirky stores and coffee shops in Cradock and enjoyed dinner at Mila’s.

All the while at Tuishuise we were made to feel welcome and well looked after. The cohesion of the employees is evident and rewarded in executing a wonderful experience.

Thanks Tuishuise team for a wonderful stay!

This is a real Karoo experience with the hospitality, Karoo lamb, authentic houses (accommodation) and value for money ect. You can taste the Karoo dust under your skin. Oh i love the Karoo & its people.

Sandra has done an amazing job saving these old cottages and the hotel at the end of the street. She has individually renovated each cottage with authentic furniture - it is a great piece of living history. The cottages are cozy and the the restaurant is great. Worth staying at.

The service and the people were brilliant. Accommodating and kind despite our doorstep, no booking, arrival. The food was out of this world. The hotel decor reminiscent. The cottage was immaculate and very cosy.

We stayed in one of the Tuishuise cottages last weekend as a last minute decision after having to make an overnight stop in Cradock. We decided to book here as it was at the top of the Tripadvisor list for Cradock, and we soon saw why! After checking in at the hotel we were led to our historic cottage. What looked to be a very small building on the outside was deceptively large inside, with 3 good sized bedrooms. The cottage was beautifully decorated in the Victorian style, but with a modern shower in the large bathroom. A food breakfast was served in the Victoria Hotel at the end of the street. Special mention must be made of the staff who were extremely friendly and accommodating - even phoning us after check out to say that our son had left his 'Hulk' toy behind! We will definitely be back here again at some point - hopefully for a longer stay.
