Villa Reinet Guest House
Ranked #12 of 38 Graaff-Reinet B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 October 2011

During our trip through the Little Karoo we (Joe & Monika) spent one night in this charming B&B. The room was excellent and quiet, the breakfast was perfect, the garden is relaxing and romantic and the hosts have cared lovingly for us. We would have stayed longer, but unfortunately we had to continue. The lady of the house is a historian and she told us a lot about Graaf-Reinet and South Africa. We felt very comfortable the whole time.

We stayed 2 enjoyable nights here.The B&B is located in a quiet street with walking distance to main restaurants and shops.The room which had its own entrance from the beautiful garden,was basic but with all one actually needs: clean and comfortable (+ air-con).
Breakfast was "moresome" with delicious pancakes and a fruit salad which was second to none!
Nick and Alisa are wonderful friendly hosts who were very helpful.
The general ambience of Villa Reinet was very warm and welcoming.
Great location for touring the stunnigly beautiful Vally of Desolation & Camdeboo N.P

As a guest I could not have expected a warmer welcome! Nick and Alisa welcomed me into Villa Reinet as if I were family. Over a welcome cup of tea we sat and chatted in the homely and comfortable lounge and even the sun obliged and shone through an enormous bay window.
My room, which was spacious and comfortable, opened out into a beautiful garden. Even in winter the garden promised pleasant hours of restful contemplation under the trees and amongst the shrubs. An evening around the fireside with other guests and dinner afterwards made a welcome change from sitting alone in a restaurant. Nick and Alisa are proud of where they live and are willing to give boundless information about the area and places to visit. A memorable stay with a wonderful couple. Thanks Nick and Alisa!

We enjoyed our stay at Villa Reinet. It's near the centre of the town and restaurants are easily reached by foot. The building itself has alot of atmosphere, the rooms, the hallway and the garden all have a distinctive historical style. The owners are the warmest of persons one can imagine, really friendly and interested.
