We spent four nights here as a break in our South African tour. The guest house was everything we had expected from previous excellent reviews. The room we stayed in was beautifully furnished and comfortable and the staff helpful and friendly. The garden is small but shaded and pretty with the little pool for a welcome cool dip. It is...

What a beautiful place! My husband is disabled and the room made provision for this. We had an outside door near the car, the shower has a seat inside and air-con. The room itself is beautiful and the antique furniture interested me. Our breakfast table had these tiny silver salt and pepper pots and silver butter dish. The cloth serviettes...

Hot tap in bathroom didn't run warm. Shower made a noise in pipe work. Early morning traffic makes a noise on road outside at 6.30. Good overall but a...

The guesthouse offers a level of detail rarely experienced. From a warm and efficient phone call mid afternoon as we travelled to find out what time we would arrive, through a welcome cocktail and accurate advice on where to dine. Roberta, welcoming and showing us around, as well as the owners, demonstrated the same level of heartfelt hospitality. We were...

We had the most comfortable stay at Aa'Qtansisi. The bed gave us a great night's sleep and the mosquito net was very welcome on a warm night when we wanted to leave the windows open. We had been recommended a restaurant for dinner, but it was booked out, so the woman that greeted us made us a booking at Polka,...

Such a lovely guesthouse, elegantly decorated with an late 19th century / early 20 th century antique style. Very clean and neat and good value for money. The hospitality of the owner and staff makes one feel right at home as the owner goes the extra mile in making you feel at home and comfortable. Definitely worth staying at! Thank...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This old Karoo home, circa 1856, has been created into a small boutique-type accommodation centrally situated in Graaff-Reinet, the jewel of the Karoo. Our guesthouse, named Aa’Qtansisi, is derived from the authentic original Khoisan language, meaning "We welcome You." Dating back 350,000 years ago, the Khoisan were the first human inhabitants, in Graaff-Reinet & our town - Graaff-Reinet may well be the Origin of Mankind! Be prepared to be spoiled & delighted with personal attention & unique flavours of decor in each part of this accommodation so that Aa’Qtansisi will become your first choice of accommodation when passing through Graaff-Reinet. ... more   less
