About
Description
In the heart of a town with a rich history and immense character, Drostdy Hotel, the finest Karoo gem, is found. This town, Graaff-Reinet, was established in 1786 and has matured into a charming destination that ...More is well-known for its blend of Cape Dutch, Victorian and Karoo architecture. Uniquely, the town is surrounded, almost entirely, by the Camdeboo National Park which boasts spectacular wildlife and natural scenery. Just as pleasing to the eye, Drostdy Hotel was initially built in the early 1800s and has its own fascinating story, having been refined over the years into one of South Africa’s top 10 hotels. Although it bears modern touches and a contemporary atmosphere, it remains true to its roots with furnishings and antiques that point to the past. Guests will find this understated Grande dame a comfortable retreat in the expansive Great Karoo. Less
