“Clearly the best in the area”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

Great accommodation and you really wont go too wrong by booking this place.

Super friendly staff who made sure we were comfortable - and after a long day driving it was welcomed! only gripe was that i had to get up to turn the fridge off due to noise

if you need to be in Vanrhynsdorp - i suggest you book this place - however be warned that this is definitely a "stop over" town

Didnt eat at the b&b so no comment on food.

deserving of 4 stars

This is an outstanding and very affordable establishment with 4 large well appointed units at the end of town. Breakfast to die for and the hostess Heila will really do anything to please your every wish. You won't look further than this once you've stayed

We were shown round our room at great speed by an efficient proprietor.

The room was generous in size and offered the chance to be self catering (microwaves, fridges etc) as well as normal B and B.

We paid extra for the B and B as is often the custom in this country as so many people just need a room and are off at the crack of dawn to drive to Namibia etc..

We were kept awake by barking dogs but they settled down after an hour or so.

Room Tip: all seem pretty much the same.

Already by entering the place we were enthousiasticly welcomed by Heila. She is a very, very friendly hostess, she has a very open behaviour. The place is 100% clean. The bed comfortable. Really one of the best places we stayed after a 12 day tour through Namibia and South Africa.
The place is not the most well known places, but when you arrive at her place you are immediately convinced. This place has a really optimal cost benefit quote. Always again.

Room Tip: A place where you always feel home after a tiring trip. Excellent.

The rooms are very cleverly laid out, SPACIOUS and comfortable. Provision is made for the diverse temperatures experienced in Vanrhynsdorp; heaters and electric blankets for freezing winter temperatures (it can get very cold!) air conditioner and a fan for warm summer days. Next two each bed were two towels (large & small) plus a facecloth and each room has a hair dryer. An extra towel and a hair dryer is a luxury for those of us with long hair...
The rooms have all the basic necessities for self catering, should you need more, Heila will probably go out of her way to help you. Which brings me to the owner of the guest house, Heila, from whom we received a warm welcome, it felt more like visiting family than staying at a guesthouse. Also, she gave us a choice, we could either have breakfast at the guesthouse or have breakfast at a restaurant in town which is a nice option to have. She also recommended and made reservations on behalf of us at a very good local restaurant. We will definitely go back to Aan't Dorpseind - thank you Heila!

We stayed here during the flower season - very much worth seeing. The rooms are large and are arranged around a courtyard with a small pool with on-site parking. Our two rooms each had a kitchenette (microwave) and a large bathroom and were spotlessly clean. The beds had electric blankets. It was all to a good standard and it was great value. The owner was very friendly and helpful and arranged for us to enjoy the excellent breakfast at the Muis Huis in the village. This is a rural area, so don't expect Cape Town/Stellenbosch chic with plenty of restaurant options.

I have to conduct business in the Vanrhynsdorp vicinity at least once a year, and both times I had gone there, I'd stayed at Aan't Dorpseind. Very friendly hostess and welcoming attitude. The rooms are very modern with all amenities needed of high quality and good build. The rooms are super clean and being Self Catering and B&B, all facilities are in good working order and the breakfasts are very good. There is ample space in the rooms and the patio is an added advantage on a summer evening. Will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room where the patio opens up to a view of the close-by mountain.
