I always stay at Buitenverwagten, as it really feels like home. The warm welcome and great hospitality of Lizel is always making me feel special and welcome. The rooms are each unique and beautiful with special touches of an artist. Breakfast is the best and just what you need to get your day started. Definitely the best place to stay in Graaff Reinet!!

We stayed at Buiten Verwagten in the main house for one night. It was a beautifully decorated room with very high ceilings. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The host is very friendly and helpful, and serves a delicious breakfast. The old vine in the garden is really impressive. We can recommend staying here.

A lovely, home away from home guest house. We had a stopover en route to Stellenbosch and we’re made to feel most welcome and at home. The breakfast was a perfect start to our day with many options to choose from. Thank you!
