When one thinks of Sutherland you would imagine arid land and a telescope with not much else. Skitterland is perfectly situated with every attention to detail. There is nothing lacking. Beautiful property, fantastically decorated rooms and a scrumptuous breeakfast. The biggest bathrooms I have ever seen! The service was phenominal!!

We had a lovely stay at Skitterland. Everything was clean. The hot bath was amazing after a cold night out stargazing. The breakfast was delicious. True Afrikaans hospitality at its best. We can definately recommend them.

Visiting the SALT telescope in Sutherland was on my husband's bucket list. We booked at Skitterland for 4 nights to get the feel of the town and we couldn't have done better! The warm hospitality and personal attention received from Annelien Bezuidenhout, the manager, made this stay very special! Not to mention the excellent breakfast served. On her recommendation we...

We only stayed one night at Skitterland in the Aries Room. Fabulous linen and pillows , Lovely decor and a gracious lounge to relax in. Good breakfast with local delicacies . We were disappointed that you had to have a booking t see the interior of the church.

Had a wonderful stay at Skitterland guesthouse the weekend of the 18/19 March. Had all the luxury amenities and felt like home away from home. Reception was friendly and breakfast was superb. It is situated in town and was close to all the attractions and restaurants. Had a most memorable weekend. Highly recommended.

We only stayed for one night at the Skitterland. We, 2 couples, had 2 wonderful suites, huge rooms, lovely furniture, smashing bathrooms, perfect service and great breakfast. This is really the place to stay when in Sutherland.

Louise was very friendly and helpful. She knows the town very well and made good dinner recommendations. Very good Karoo breakfast. the lamb chops and skilpaadjies for breakfast was a winner. Large bathroom.

Stayed at the Skitterland while performing public outreach at the South African Astronomical Observatory, located a few kilometers away. The deep tub was nice, the television worked well, and the owner was always helpful and friendly. This is where I will stay should I return to perform more work at the telescopes.

A very neat and clean B&B that is very well run. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful. The uniquely fresh air and very clear night sky is a wonderful experience, as was the tranquillity of the town. The visit to the Observatory was superb.
