Their service was very good from when I started booking the rooms to when we left the hotel after our stay. It is a good and comfortable stop over on your way to Cape Town or Namibia. I would recommend this hotel to all my friends and family.

The Kakamas Hotel has set a new standard for South African road trips. A very high standard, indeed. We felt so fortunate to have booked two nights accommodation on the N 14 between Springbok and Upington, just outside the town of Kakamas in the Northern Cape. The location suited our itinerary perfectly. We travel the world and have done so for years. Seldom have we encountered such a high standard for a "country hotel" anywhere. We were greeted at reception in a most professional manner. What a great first impression. Things kept getting better. We were allocated our room. What a delight. The standard of furniture and fittings plus all conveniences were all first class.

Then we went to dinner at the Vergelegen Restaurant. Also first class.

The hotel, its owners, Management and Staff team all deserve a huge congratulations on running such a high quality, service oriented business. Thank you for making our stay so wonderful. Last but not least - the breakfasts were delicious.

You will see us again next year. Thank you once again.

PS (A Covid-19 compliant establishment). We have developed huge confidence in hotels owned by Country Hotels and will increasingly support them.

Warm welcome in Kakamas. The intimacy of a B&B with the quality service of a big city hotel. The rooms are spacious and modern, with meals served in a vibey coffee shop style dining room or around the pool. Great breakfast, even though a la carte instead of usual buffet because of Covid restrictions.

This hotel is more a motel than the boutique hotel that it claims to be. We are in the middle of a pandemic and the only sign of a COVID protocol was the Covid Questionnaire we had to fill out at check-in and the hand sanitizer at reception. Nobody checked our temperature (as per protocol) , no sanitizer in the room. All the staff was ONLY wearing a mask when they saw we were approaching the desk or when delivering food to the room. They are certainly not wearing them when together behind the scenes. Our bathroom was covered with dead bugs upon check-in , they only proceeded to clean it about 45 minutes after and sprayed the entire bathroom (with no windows) with DOOM making it impossible to stay in the room for quite a while after that, forcing us to be outside in the freezing cold. The food choices were very much meat based and what we ordered was inedible. We returned our plates pretty much full. The room was not very inviting at all. The staff was friendly and eager to help. We would definitely not recommend this place or stay at any other Country Hotels.

The rooms were pleasant and spacious. The location is excellent too.

Please improve on the cleanliness & staff service for the dining area at all times. There should be a person who is always available to welcome guests during breakfast & dinner times in order to escort guests to their tables & ensure that tables are clean with appropriate cutlery provided too - on both days (breakfast & dinner), we had to ask to be assisted as there was no one available to help us.

During breakfast, the buffet area was not clean, I had to wipe the surfaces with tissues as I felt embarrassed for the next person to see what was happening. We also had to order food directly from the kitchen as staff was not readily available to take our breakfast orders (i.e. they were not readily available to assist not only us but other guests too).

Please improve on the above. Your Hotel needs this. Thank you.

Attitude and service of staff terrible. Our dinner of 3 fish dishes were unedible and tasteless. Breakfast was no better with omelets like rubber and orders mixed up.
On our second group 2 days later the booking was for 4 rooms and Kakamas Hotel only had 3 for the group with attitude of Guide can find his own room in town. Dinner okay but breakfast bad again, cold and tasteless. To top it all the manager wanted payment on departure when we already prepaid for 4 rooms and only got 3. Excuse was they are behind with their admin and accounts.

My wife and I stayed at this wonderful guest house while exploring the Kakamas area, particularly Augrabies National Park which is only about 30km away. We also had time to simply relax at the pool with welcome cold drinks during the heat wave.

Reception service was a little clinical on arrival but they turned out to be exceptionally helpful during our stay. Service generally was very friendly, efficient and confident.

The room and bathroom were both spacious and very clean. The bed was comfortably firm and there was also an outdoor shower.

Dinner at the restaurant was also most enjoyable. Service was good, and the generous helpings were delicious and great value for money. The relaxed ambience allowed us to get to know other guests who were on their way to a fishing trip in the Richtersveld.

The area is very pretty during early summer with the extensive vineyards providing a wonderful backdrop. This property is highly recommended - we will definitely stay here again.

Kakamas hotel is in a lovely setting, staff were friendly and efficient, we checked in early with no issues. The room was well appointed, linen was crisp and clean. we had an outdoor and indoor shower sadly it was a bit too cold to use the outdoor shower. The food at dinner was good, breakfast was the usual fare . we would certainly stay there again.

We had a fantastic stay, clean and spacious room with AC. The staff, especially the manager on duty was very friendly and went out of their way for us, even though they were very busy and under pressure. We left early in the morning to see the waterfalls and the manager organised food parcels for us to take with. She needs a pay raise and a long vacation after silly season. My only nit-pick was the bathrooms that can be upgraded in the near future, that being said everything worked and was clean.
