Warm and friendly hosts. Excellent service and the hotel décor is so special and timeless, one is transported to a bygone era. The food were delicious and attention to detail was much appreciated. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return for another, longer stay!

Thank you we enjoyed our stay. The food was superb and beautifully prepared. Interior is beautiful and interesting. the only critique is the premises is not accessible for persons with walking disabilities.

Thank you so much for your review Nelia. We really are sad that you have given us our lowest review score thus far. We've gone back in our records, and saw that your booking was a direct telephone booking, and we had some email correspondence thereafter where we confirmed the reservation as well as your dinner orders. Sadly, nowhere in any of your communications with us - either verbal or electronically - did you mention that one of your party had walking disabilities. Had we been informed about that, we would have suggested an alternative guesthouse in Richmond because all of our rooms are located on the first floor up a flight of stairs. On our website and all booking sites also have it noted that our rooms are up a flight of stairs. Our main priority is to ensure our guests have the most comfortable stay with us, and we would certainly have informed you of the stairs had you asked. In any event, we are really glad that you enjoyed your stay with us, as well as our meals, and thank you so much for the compliments on our interiors - we have been working really hard at restoring this old building.

We had a lovely stay in a beautiful, clean room! The hotel represents the old hotel look and feel of yesteryear... definitely worth the visit and stay over. The breakfast was deliciously and beautiful presented! The owners hospitality was next level.

Oh wow Gerhard, we are absolutely blown away by your review. We are so appreciative of the time you took to write a few words about your stay. Our special brand of hospitality is what we are becoming known for, and we really are so glad that you got to experience it. We do hope to see you again soon so that you'll be able to experience the newly painted and renovated rooms - the room you stayed in has been repainted and redecorated, and we are thrilled with the outcome. With very fond regards from the Karoo!

We stopped over in Richmond on a trip to Klaserie. We found the Richmond Karoo Small hotel to be everything others had said it would be. From the moment we arrived we were looked after extremely well by Lionel who greeted us and assisted us with our luggage and made us feel very welcome. We had a delicious dinner and excellent breakfast. The attention to detail is excellent and this together with the beautiful and interesting decor of the hotel will ensure it is a success for years to come. To crown it all Richmond is not on the load-shedding map so whatever happens in the rest of the country Richmond always has electricity! Wish we had time to explore some of the other attractions in Richmond.

We really are so appreciative of your absolutely stunning review Wanderer100CT! Thank you for choosing to stay with us, and for the brilliant feedback you have given us. Our aim is to create special memories for our guests, for them to always remember that quirky little hotel they stayed in on the way to Cape Town.... whether it be through our personalised service, the eclectic decor and artwork, or our tasty breakfasts. Our guests should always feel that they have received value for money when they have stayed with us, and we are really thrilled that you seem to have done so! We really would love to host you again, and we send our best wishes to you from the Karoo.

Nitesh, it was so wonderful to meet you guys. Thank you for choosing to stay with us, and for your beautiful review. Our aim was to always stay away from the "cookie cutter" guesthouse decor and service, and to provide something different - and memorable - for our guests. Please do keep us in mind when you are next travelling the long distance on the N1... we would so love to see you again. Fond regards from the Karoo!
