The best experience ever, with great food, wonderful warm hosts and customer service. Beautiful room and lovely atmosphere. We stayed only one night on route from Cape town to PTA, with our cats and iut was the best place to stay.

We loved our overnight stay at The Barracks while on our honeymoon road trip. By the time we arrived in Colsberg, we were cold and exhausted and all we wanted was a warm meal, hot shower and a comfortable, cozy room and bed . . . The Barracks delivered! Mike was incredibly hospitable and friendly and showed us to our room and pointed us in the direction of a delicious, hot meal from Inni Kraal (a short walk from The B&B). The room was absolutely perfect for a stay over. So warm, clean and comfortable and we had a really good night's rest there. We would definitely stay at The Barracks again when travelling to Joburg.

My wife and I stayed overnight on a journey to the Cape from Johannesburg. The accommodation was warm and clean and the information booklet in the room was well researched and informative. The dinner recommendation "Inni Kraal" was good as was the Barrack's early morning breakfast in spite of Eskom electricity outages.

We stayed overnight between CPT and JHB. Were greeted by a warm welcome and the rooms were already heated for our comfort. The breakfast was excellent as well. A short walk down the road to some nice restaurants for dinner.

We found the perfect stopover when traveling with a dog between JHB and CPT. The garden is nice and big and even got a water bowel. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Annalie and Mike are extremally welcoming and friendly.

Staying at the Barracks was a departure from our usual choice in Colesberg. The property is historic, and the rooms reflect that. Loved the little "stoeps" covered by vines, and the owners are very attentive and accommodating. Also cooked a wonderful breakfast!

The Barraks offers a set dinner, served together with other guests. This relaxed discussion was a real highlight. Talking with other travellers is always a good time, coupled with delicious food, it was a special evening.
