We booked and paid for a 1-night stay during a tour a week in advance. We looked at the photos of the various rooms and decided on room 4 as we liked the way it looked with a private braai area. On our arrival at 16:00 on the day, we were unable to find anyone at reception (a door) for a while and eventually 'n small child who passed by went to call "grandma". We were hurriedly given keys and told that if we want anything to eat that the OK and Spar would be closing at 20:00 and 19:00 respectively. We were told that we could use the garage parking, but the door is manual and a little sticky. We were also informed that if we wished to braai that we would have to wait for other guests to first remove their luggage from the braai area (luggage all over the place) After a visit to Spar to get some food we waited till after 19:15 when the other guests collected their luggage. By this time it was too late for us top braai. We ended up going to bed without braaing. I am normally an easy sleeper and will sleep in almost any place given the chance, but the mattress was just so uncomfortable that I could not sleep much. The bad smell did not help either. The next morning we could not get out of the place soon enough. Perhaps others are lucky to get a better room, but room 1 is a room from hell and I pray other visitors are not tortured with accommodation I would not even house a servant in. We stayed in a number of other places which were great. Calvinia Guesthouse was disappointing.

This little gem has a hart of gold, the lady running the establishment goes out of her way to make you feel at home. This includes a home cook "boere" dinner to die for. Lamb chops, potato wedges, sweet carrots, green beans with mushrooms, rice... we ate our hearts out. Room was nicely laid out. Even with the -3 degrees outside it was nice and comfortable in the room.

Das Guesthouse ist schön eingerichtet. Alles was man braucht ist vorhanden. Gute Lage, hübsch. Das Abendessen á la carte superfein. Lokale Spezialitäten. Das Frühstück auch hervorragend. Wie hatten hier 1 Übernachtung auf dem Weg zurück in den Süden. Nach Besuch des Kgalagadi National Park😊
