My husband and I recently spent several nights at Karoo Retreat. Communication for booking was very good, prompt and helpful. We were able to pay with credit card, which we found not all properties in South Africa accept.
Our room was very spacious and nicely furnished. The bed is comfortable with nice linens. The bathroom is excellent and the common room and kitchen area large and well equipped. Unfortunately the rooms are situated where they do not get much sun (which no doubt is great for beating the Karoo summer heat) so were extremely cold and dark.
The supplied breakfast was very good, plentiful, delivered promptly every morning. The place was very clean and nicely kept, and the gardens and pool area restful.
The laundry situation was very confusing too. While I could see a laundry facility behind a locked door there was no access given to it and it was not clear how we got laundry done. We toughed it out and did a few things by hand, but better direction on what laundry service is available would be helpful.
Overall we found the Retreat nice, but in need of better heating or insulation.
