    This is a good choice for an overnight in Graaff-Reinet. While not luxurious, the accommodations are comfortable and the location very peaceful and secure. Room rates are affordable. Imelda is an excellent host and will offer you great tips on what to do in her town; I recommend you try some of her suggestions, even if you're just passing through. Breakfast is offered at an additional, modest charge and well worth it. Imelda is trying out a new credit card processing device so you might not even have to pay in cash.

    So very sorry that you lovely review was overlooked Dave. Unforgivable!!! It is because of guests like you who take the trouble and time to give feedback, that the next guest can judge what it should be like to stay here. Much appreciated - and my sincere apologies again

    Although the décor was not to our taste this was secondary to the warm welcome we received from the owner Imelda, who on arrival offered us a drink and some cake. She also provided us with a map of the town and surrounding area, pointing out all the places of special interest. Unfortunately we were only there for the night but feel we should have stayed a little longer to visit some of these particularly interesting sites.
    Our room was of a decent size and had a large comfortable bed with a small ensuite, air con and tv.
    A good breakfast was provided and an excellent restaurant called Polka a few streets away was recommended and booked for us by Imelda.
    Overall we really enjoyed our stay !!

    I slipped up badly not to have replied to you at the time you sent the review. My sincere apologies. Much appreciation for the very positive review. Next time we will put you in a room on the other premises which is much more minimalistic than where you slept!! :) Do come again one day...

    If you love big international five star hotels, this probably is not the place for you. This is more like visiting some remote relatives, who just happen to have many other friends there at same time.
    House and rooms are really like any big private home. Breakfasts are like reunion of relatives you almost had forgotten.
    Imelda and Beau can give you all kind of advice what to do in and around Graaff-Reinet as they really know this area. We had nice discussions with them.
    For warm hearted and very budget friendly accomodation this is number one of the area.

    We had a room in the house in the garden which suited us better. Lovely spacious accommodation and if you want a lovely breakfast it is served under the shade in the garden. Imelda and Beau are helpful in every way and as Beau was born and raised in Graaf Reinet there is nothing he doesn't know about the place. A lovely restaurant was recommended just a short walk away and so good we went each night. Imelda collects antiques that go with the age of the house and has some beautiful pieces. We enjoyed our stay and look back with fond memories. Thank you Beau & I.

    We could never have wished for a greater review Neville & Mavis! Bless you for your lovely input. We are so fortunate to be within walking distance from all the restaurants and most of the interesting places in our beautiful town. It was a sheer pleasure to host the two of you and we would love you to come back one day.

    The accommodation is great for a one night stop over. My family of 4 slept in a spacious one bedroom, but longer than one night would have been to
    Much. A must see little gem of a town and the accommodation is in a prime spot , close to everything. The owner was wonderful and had fantastic information on what to see and do in Graaff-Reinet .

    Thanks so much for feedback Natalie. I am sorry that the big family room was not available anymore by the time that you booked, as it is much more spacious.
    We are very fortunate to be situated within walking distance to shops, 3 takeaway places literally within 1 - 3 minutes walk, an ATM 1 minute walk, a supermarket less than a minute, a filling station less than a minute!
    I trust that we will have the privilege of hosting you again one day.
