Aimee and Rob are wonderful hosts. Aimee gave us a warm welcome with some helpful local recommendations upon our arrival. The property is beautiful with clean and spacious rooms. Rob came to greet us at breakfast and guided us nicely for our onward journey. The town also has some beautiful attractions and lovely restaurants. All in all, a great stopover stay for us. Would definitely recommend!

The perfect overnight stop when traveling from Jhb to the Cape. Well, located in a quiet neighborhood, easy walking distance to town, restaurants, shopping & POI. Conveniently located to the entrance of the 'Camdeboo' Reserve. Brilliant Breakfast & the friendliest hosts.

Aimee and Rob were warm and kind hosts who went out their way to make our stay memorable. Our room was very spacious, clean with its own lounge. It had its own individual atmosphere which hotels do not. My wife has food issues which were catered for by Aimee and her staff. Breakfast (very tasty) is on the veranda and you have a view of the nearby mountain. If the weather is poor you can eat inside. Rob and Aimee know all the restaurants, so can guide you to the best. Graaf Reinet itself has its own charm and Desolation Valley, a place you MUST go to, is not far from the Whyte House. If any of you are cricket or rugby fans, Rob is your man - he played high level cricket and rugby in his youth. We would definitely stay there again.

Beautiful guest house with very friendly and helpful hosts and staff. A bit remote but therefore very quiet. Cleanliness could be improved (e.g. sheets) but overall a very nice accommodation. Breakfast very good.

Dear Uwe, we are very glad you found your stay peaceful! We can assure you that all our linen is clean, unfortunately town has a water quality and hardness issue which can sometimes cause a discolouration, this linen is taken out of circulation immediately. My apologizes if in error one was used in your room. My staff have received a warning over this and should hopefully never happen again. Thank you for your understanding. Best regards, Aimee

Our stay was super. There was a beautiful communal area available to use and tea/coffee available. Our hosts, Amy and Rob, were very welcoming and breakfast was excellent! A little oasis in the heart of a very picturesque town. Off street, gated parking and accommodation.
