On a long road trip with my 18 year old daughter recently; Colesberg looked like the perfect stopover destination... and after TripAdvisor reviews (what else?) I booked into this property for a brief overnight B&B stay. On arrival (late Sunday afternoon) the town seemed closed, but the property hosts were on call and a speedy check in to a somewhat dated decor and furniture-wise room, but clean and comfortable with ALL the requirements, was completed quickly and efficiently. SuperSport 3 on DStv meant I didn't miss my favourite football team live and thereafter we took 'mine host's' recommendation for a meal in the restaurant directly across the road - called JC's (I think). A great meal - really good; with Karoo delicacies served by recommendation off the menu and more great service...
Sleepwise, a comfortable clean bed with electric blanket against the winter cold was very welcome. My daughter and I shared a two bedroomed unit (No 9) with a central bathroom, which contained both a good bath and shower with solar heated water. Following a good hearty breakfast and lashings of coffee the next morning we checked out... with the B&B's card tucked away. If I did another long CT or PE - JHB roadtrip; I'm booking here again. Great rate too of R750 for the stay and 2 breakfasts.
