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
