Calvinia Hotel offers comfortable, air-conditioned accommodation in 25 rooms. There is a restaurant & bar on the premises. The hotel can also cater for conferences, weddings, and special events. Each room is air-conditioned, en-suite, with tea and coffee making facilities. There is also a small work table and chair, flat screen TV and a variety of selected DSTV channels to choose from. High-quality linen including towels is provided. Calvinia enjoys almost 80% starlight and the night sky is as much an attraction for city-dwellers and astronomers as the rare flora is for botanists and horticulturists. Imagine seeing 250 flowers per square meter, over hundreds of hectares ... a sight beyond description. Displays usually reach their peak towards the middle of July and draws to a close at the end of September.

We stayed at the Cslvinia Hotel on the 1st of October 2020. It was the most disappointing hotel stay of all our travels. This is a hotel to give a mis. The bath was dirty and my wife had to clean it with Handy Andy we had to go and buy at the local grocer. The shower did not work at all. Just a total disappointment. We'll never stay there again

The photos as per the website is extremely misleading - nothing as such and looked at several rooms. Old linen and pillows and it didn’t smell good either. The room that I ended up in had carpet tiles which were dirty. Forfeited my night to end up at a beautiful and crispy clean Carmel Villa guest house which was R300 cheaper, beautifully appointed, nice and cool with airconditioning and a lovely breakfast. Was so worth moving.

We understand the draught and we are very sensitive to it, but don't advertise a pool if your pool has no water in it. According to the staff it has been this way for 4 years. No wi-fi in the family room and very limited wi-fi in the room we were moved to. No icecream for milkshakes, after we offered to go to the local store to buy some they could suddenly make a plan. What you sell on your website and what you get is a totally different story. At a premium price. The staff really tried to assist us but of all the places and the other hotels in the same group this was by far the most disappointing. They also did not reply to any of my emails.
