Calvinia Hotel offers comfortable, air-conditioned accommodation in 25 rooms. There is a restaurant & bar on the premises and a swimming pool to cool down in. The hotel can also cater for conferences, weddings, More 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.
