After a long drive on a cold winter's day we received a warm welcome from Mike at "The Barracks" including a complimentary glass of sherry. The room was lovely, the bed comfortable and TV and WiFi were easily accessible. We will definitely call again.

friendly and personal welcome at arrival. The Barracks really makes an effort to ensure comfort and privacy. Own secure parking. The rooms are very comfortable with good beds, a spacious clean bathroom and above all very quiet. Far away from all the traffic on the N1. For dinner we chose the on-site restaurant. And were served a 3 course 'boerekos' meal, prepared by the lady of the house. While her husband lit a fire in the dining room filled with wonderful antiques. Really very homely and the food tasted particularly nice. The lamb chops were delicious and crispy. The chocolate bomb for dessert was a real treat. The breakfast in the morning was extensive, with delicious fresh ingredients. Very helpful hosts who also helped us with printing documents before departure. They waved us goodbye personally. A very charming and pleasant B&B where we would like to stay again. Well recommended!

We really enjoyed our stay in The Barracks. The room was spacious and clean and warmed up due to the cold winter nights. We were welcomed by Mike with some sherry that went of well on a winters night.

We've had the most enjoyable stay at The Barracks and already have plans to go back for an extended stay. The rooms, gardens/court yards and stoepie are beautiful and so peaceful and relaxing. The service from the hosts are second to none.
