We spend a night there. When we go there we didn't feel welcome and didn't feel confidently to ask for anything. The room hasn't got any Coffee/tea facility . There isn't any hairdryer. The air-con hasn't got an remote, and you cant open the windows because it has no burglar proof. Although there was mosquito repellant -this was nice . If you go there ask that they not give you the outside quarters, because it was very stuffy. They don't communicate very well . Otherwise The breakfast was very special It was of high standard . It is convenient place if you only want to sleep and breakfast there. It is also very near the main road which is comfortable, but i think there is other options in Van Rhynsdorp

Accommodation in a rambling Victorian house with cottages.
They have paintings on show and for sale.
Our room was on the poky side and cluttered.
The establishment gave the impression of being somewhat past its sell by date.
Fortunately, our hosts were charming and helpful.
We were referred to a restaurant on a camping site - and had our doubts. But, as promised, the food was excellent.

we stayed in van rhyn guest house en route to augrabies for a road trip. we stayed in a 4 bed family room, whick was very neat. the owners was friendly, and their lovely dog gigi stole our hearts.
pity that the hot water ran out after just one shower in the morning, and the rest of us had to shower in cold water... luckily it was not in winter, so we survived!

Response from HerbyHowe, Owner at Van Rhyn Guest House
Responded 03 Oct 2015
Dear Coetzer_family Many thanks for the review. I must apologise for the lack of sufficient hot water - in the rush of a full house I forgot to turn on the second geyser which supplies your room with hot water, and if my memory doesn't fail me you also had to put up with a dreadful noise when the hot water tap was opened in the shower. Thank you for bringing it to my attention - it has now been sorted out. I hope your discomfort will mean you do not visit again - hopefully we can make it up to you. Kind regards Herbert

We stayed one night in the guest house which is on the main street of Vanrhynsdorp which is not a busy or noisy town.
The large room was a little old fashioned (good) with en-suite with a very good shower.
We spent some time in the little inner courtyard which has mature trees & a bird-fountain which was visited by many different birds.
We had the full breakfast (but without sausage or bacon) - very good.
Also very interesting to talk to the proprietors who's recommendation for dinner was spot-on.

Herbert is a great host and ensures you are comfortable at all times. The rooms have an old almost Victorian feel and look. No TV in the room & also no tea/coffee amenities in the room either.
The room was quiet and made it possible to get some work done too.
