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.

Overall experience was good. As a vintage sandstone building it has an old world charm, with very high ceilings and polished wooden floors. Effiicient and friendly reception and registration. Breakfast was top class. Suggestion: Sutherland gets very cold during winter when the thick duvet is called for, but in summertime, a light blanket might be more appropriate. One smallish point...

Centred in the middle of the town, conveniently situated to all the restaurants and just a short trip to the observatory. The rooms had lots of little extras that made the visit well worth while. would recommend to anybody.

We stayed here earlier in the year and found this b&b, we really enjoyed it so decided to take our friends back with us and again had a fantastic stay. The rooms were still just as comfortable and large with a sitting room and bedroom. Breakfast is good. Would recommend a stay

A lovely B n B managed by lovely Louise, perfectly situated along the main road of Sutherland. I was pleasantly surprised when presented with the honeymoon suite and all it's spaciousness, as well as a separate deluxe double room for my kids, a luxury not afforded to us by many B n Bs previously booked. A mixture of antique charm...

We really enjoyed the comfort of Skitterland B & B. We had a room, Aries room, with a lounge and it was exceptionally comfortable, one of the best beds I have slept in. The location was perfect and breakfast was great.

In the home of stars, Skitterland is a shining one. Louise helped us out to get to the SALT tour when we had car troubles, and advised us where to go to get our car fixed. Our room was huge, with a dining table in the bathroom - that's a first! The sherry and biscuits was another special touch. We...
