Buiten Verwagten Guest House
Ranked #6 of 38 Graaff-Reinet B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 July 2014

A fabulous stopover in Graaff-Reinet which is a logical stop-off en-route between Cape Town and the Eastern Cape. Very well run, spotlessly clean, room was well-appointed and well-equipped with comfortable beds, small kitchenette. Great breakfast, and very quiet location - all round a great find! A definite must!

We stopped in Graaff-Reinet on our way from Pretoria to Cape Town and had a wonderful stay. This guest house was so welcoming and accommodating - especially given that we were traveling with our two young children. The rooms were cozy and warm and it felt like we were staying at a friend's home. The breakfast was great and it was such a lovely place to spend the night.

Wonderfully comfortable guest house set in beautifully manicured garden. The Victorian room that I stayed in was large, well appointed and above all immaculately clean. The property is well situated in town within walking distance of Graaf Reinet's museums and restaurants. Can recommend without hesitation - one of the best that I have encountered.

Room Tip: The Victorian Room is their flagship room if you are looking for a real period treat.

This guest house in the Karoo sets the standard for others to live up to. The building is beautifully restored. Lovely wooden floors, doors and window frames. Shutters ensure a dark room. The furniture and fittings are all tasteful reminders of an elegant era that has sadly passed. The room had a separate living/ kitchen area. Very comfortable bed and lovely linen.

The grounds offer secure parking and the garden is a great place to relax.

The best aspect is the kind and considerate hosts that make you feel most welcome, and supply a good fresh cooked breakfast in the morning.

After one night, we booked changed our itinerary so that we can stay there again when we return home.

We stumbled on this place by accident in 2013 and have since had a return trip. Peet & Cherie
are the perfect hosts and always willing to go out of their way to help you with local information.
The buildings are historic and a peaceful oasis in the town centre. We cannot speak highly enough of this estalishment
