“Best in Piketberg”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

It was everything we hoped for and lived up to its website pics. Beautifully renovated rooms, spectacular views from upstairs over the valley and town. Service was unintrusive yet available when needed. A definite stop-over en-route to Nambia and excellent weekend breakaway.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms have great views.

My wife and I frequently ply the N7 route between Cape Town and the Namibian border and are constantly on the lookout for good (and new) places to dine and stay. As such, we were delighted to find the recently renovated Feathers Inn and decided to spend the night there.

The hotel was relatively empty (April 2012) yet we were allocated, in our opinion, one of the worst rooms in the hotel. This was because, as the owner put it, it was "the easiest room to turn over" - not a great introduction!

Our experiences of the owner, George, are not as positive as those of the other reviewers. Having tolerated some 45 minutes of distasteful rudeness from him post settling into the room, we decided that such management behaviour was unacceptable, collected our bags and left in search of alternative accommodation. This proved a wise decision as we had a most enjoyable evening at the Eendekuil Hotel (now no longer a hotel) where Magda's (the owner) hospitality was the complete antithesis of that experienced at Feathers.

We continue to make our frequent journey's along the N7 and continue our search for good eateries and decent places to rest. So saying, we recently discovered Hebron at the top of the Piekenierskloof Pass (outside Citrusdal) where their food was excellent and the owner engaging. Never again will we return to Feathers.

My wife and I spent a night over at the family run Feathers inn, and loved every second of it!!!. The owners, George and Nola made our stay unforgettable, and everywhere you go in this beautiful guest house, you can see the love and the time taken to rebuild and decorate this amazing old building. Their restaurant, Archers bistro, is without a doubt the only place to eat dinner in Piketberg. The owner George is the chef and prepares mouthwatering steaks..among other wonderful dishes. Be sure to try the chili chocolate Creme Brule! The same can be said for their coffee shop that serves lovely breakfasts and amazing cakes made by their daughter Claire.
The room we stayed in (Rooster) was lovely, spacious, spotless, and beautifully decorated.
There really is only one venue in Piketberg and that is Feathers Inn. Thank you to Geroge, Nola, Warren and Claire for an amazing stay....Highly recommended.

- we really struggled to find this specific accommodation - when we googled "accommodation in piketberg" we were referred to many B&B but not Feathers Inn - maybe revisit your accessibility via google?

We had a brilliant stay!

Highly recommended!!!

Room Tip: My husband found the pillows too hard?

For anyone looking for a great stay in Piketberg, I can honestly say the Feathers Inn Guest house is an excellent choice. We were spoiled by great service, beautiful big rooms, amazing food at the restaurant and friendly smiles all weekend for our stay. Great guest house!
