I loved the personal touch that we received from our host at the Ibis lounge. Everything from the room to the dinner and breakfast had some personal touches from our hosts.The town has maintained that Karoo magic and is definitely worth the visit.

About
Description
Has the Karoo's siren call beckoned you to linger? Now you can rest your weary head here at The Ibis Lounge with a choice of three accommodation offerings. The Karoo Room has large doors that open onto a stoep, a More double bed, and reed ceilings. The interior is decorated with Charmaine Haines art and has a separate room just for the bath - completely indulgent - with all sorts of nice bubbles, oils and more provided. Other facilities include a shower, toilet, electric blankets, a heater, fan, toiletries, a bathroom heater and heated towel rails. Our Amore Room is our room of love, decorated all in white, with its double bed featuring a love headboard. The bed has a down duvet and electric blanket for those cold Karoo nights. The en-suite bathroom has a shower and heater, with heated towel rails. Utilities include a bar fridge, electronic safe, DSTV, steam iron, hair dryer as well as a coffee and tea station. The Happy Room has two three-quarter beds and is decorated in bright colours and themes from our travels in South America. The large bathroom has a double shower (two people can shower - each with separate controls and shower head). There is a ball-and-claw bath, under-floor heating, heated towel rails, a fan, electric blanket and more. Be welcome, and enjoy true Karoo hospitality. Please note: We regret no children under the age of 10 years old. Less
