We stayed as part of a cycle tour on route to Namaqualand for 2 nights. The rooms are spacious and bathrooms excellent. The views are spectacular. The food was incredible- beautifully prepared and great variety. The people were warm and friendly The driveway (8km) has amazing quiver trees Our cycle to the orange river via the date farms was immaculate- the staff seem happy and look after the place beautifully- it’s completely spotless. The views from the guesthouse are incredible

We have camped at Klein Pella on three occasions. On the latest trip, my husband enjoyed exploring the 4x4 routes with friends and we saw a lot more of this beautiful farm. (I think that these trails need to be pre-arranged.) The campsite is peaceful and pleasant, with lovely views. The campsites have access to shared ablution blocks, braai areas and power points. On the latest visit, we booked a site (1 of 2) with private ablutions that were very nicely decorated, including non-slip mats, power points, etc. Delicious dates are generally available for purchase at reception.

Crossen SA we stayed at klein pella. The receptionist was really welcoming and nice. She took us to our room which had a nice balcony. Diner and breakfast was perfect. It can compete with a 4 star cook. Whatever you can imagine it’s available to eat. Klein pella itself is a world on it’s own. Grapje Farm and also dates. It is really huge. A must is you want peace and quiet. There is a swimmingpool you can use

Our group of 12 stayed one night at this wonderful guest house in the seeming middle of nowhere and we were amazed by the modern, ample accomodations with sweet touches in decoration and wonderful views. The manager was very welcoming and made us feel right at home. The pre-ordered dinner meal was just delicious as was the hearty breakfast. A fine place to stay also because of the magnificent aloe trees.

Wonderful welcoming reception on arrival, were upgraded from rondavel to lodge as they were being renovated. Dinner was superb and the lamb dish outstanding. Purchasing dates produced on the farm definitely a must!

Unfortunately three quarters of the gravel road to Klein Pella is horrendus & the other quarter good. Despite the bad road this is a must see destination absolutely stunning scenery especially down towards the date plantation. The history how Klein Pella date farm evolved / started is also very interesting & heart warming which most people don`t know. The big attraction without doubt is the date farm & after the road trip one has just completed to get there, Klein Pella Guesthouse offers comfortable value for money B & B accommodation for the weary traveller. 5* for the dates & scenery / setting etc.. & 4* for B&B accommodation

One could not expect anything better from camp sites, ablutions and sites are well kept and very clean. people that visit here should stay a bit longer to enjoy the peace it brings you. all the camp sites are on grass and the views are fantastic from all sites

We didn't stay at Klein Pella but went to buy dates. What an experience. We were welcomed and told how the dates are grown. We drove around the farm and saw the 16000 male date palms on top of the hill. As we travelled over the hill we saw the thousands of female date palms in the valley together with vineyards. Date palms don't like humidity. We bought a box of delicious dates. They say you learn every day. That was a day to remember. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

The best first: there is a stunning pool one can actually swim in. The rooms are large and front of house is very helpful. The setting is absolutely amazing. We found it odd that some of the staff sat in front of the TV most of the time, just waving at us guests from their comfortable couch. We opted for dinner, bed and breakfast, which didn't really work. We got provided some braai food to braai for ourselves. Fish (never a good idea so far inland), vegetarian sausage (unfortunately covered in an unidentifyable sauce) and stunning toasted sandwiches. The concept of getting dinner offered and then having to cook it ourselves doesn't do it for me. There were three salads provided, two of which consisted mainly of mayonnaise. One could have enjoyed a meal under stunning stars on the huge balcony except the staff insisted on turning the most horrific fluorescent light on, although we turned it off. Eventually I gave up and ate on the balcony of our room.The staff left and if it wouldn't have been for my partner the salads would have been standing outside all night. Strange.
