“A warm welcome”
Reviewed 17 January 2014

Simply charming, with a touch of quirkiness! Karoo Pandok exudes atmosphere. High points were a memorable bottle of Shiraz shared on the stoep of the candle-lit restaurant, the expanse of stars, breakfast made with eggs laid right on the property (bright orange yolks) and chatting to Louis about Pandok, his travels and his love of life.
Highly recommended.

Lovely surroundings and a authentically decorated refurbished farmhouse welcomes you to Karoo Pandok. A lovely place for a restful stopover between Cape Town and Johannesburg. Could easily spend more than just one night here!!!!

What a pleasant surprise to find a beautiful well equipped cottage in Bethuli. Louis was an excellent host and the staff couldnt have been better. Remember your Bug-spray, creepy crawlies come out at night. Breakfast was ample and well prepared - under the watchful eye of a friendly hand reared Sringbok. High protein and more than enough- the mince was devine, we missed a slice or two of tomato though. Thank you. We will return.

We had an enjoyable time at Pandok. Our accommodation and breakfast was good. Some small maintenance issues, however nothing to spoil our stay. I found the host and staff very helpful and personal. Particularly enjoyed the dinner we booked and the ambiance that evening. I can recommend this establishment.

We stayed at Karoo Pandok on our way to Kenton-on-Sea from Johannesburg and were very pleased. The location breaks the trip roughly in half, which was the original reason we chose to stay there. However, after experiencing the Pandok first hand I would recommend it to anyone for a variety of reasons.
- The area is beautiful in a stereotypical Karoo way
- The rooms are neat, tidy and spacious and decorated with a touch of flair
- The food was delicious
- Great service and friendly staff
I commend Louis for the great work he is doing and would encourage anyone to visit them.

Fantastic stay in the farm cottage. I would strongly recommend Karoo Pandok as a stay over place...but spend two nights ...as there are lots of interesting things in and around Bethulie. Louis is the perfect host and chef and made us feel very welcome. Thanks Louis for a great stay!
