Prince Albert has a large offering of accommodation. We have stayed at 3 different establishments in April and June 2022 and will choose Karoo View again, in particular for self catering. We stayed in a Karoo masterclass cottage in town close to everything that Prince Albert offers. The kitchen has everything you need - and more - to make it a great self catering experience. We ordered food from close by African Relish deli though. It was quite cold and the fire place was great and easy to use!

Thank you for your review Trippletot, it is appreciated. All our units have indoor fireplaces and some of our units also have wood fired heated plunge pools to make that winter experience all the better. We would hope to see you again soon. Cheers. Howard.

An incredible little town in the karoo, worth a visit for sure and what a fabulous home we stayed in. The host Howard was super friendly and helpful. The house could not have been more beautiful with all the amenities at our finger tips. Such splendid attention to detail throughout the home. Thank you for a memorable stay. Would highly recommend visiting Prins Albert, the mountain passes and Karoo Masterclass.

Honestly thee best equipped and beautiful cottage! Attention to detail like I’ve never seen before. Absolutely beautiful and friendly welcoming and helpful host. The kolkol is an added bonus and it was amazing watching the beautiful night sky from there. Was an absolute pleasure to visit and will definitely suggest them to every person going to Prince Albert.

What a gem. This place has everything for a super comfortable stay, the attention to detail is wonderful. The location is close enough to town but just on the edge to have a stunning view and close proximity to nice karoo walks. Super dog friendly too and Howard assisted with dinner reservations which was so nice.

I enjoyed an excellent stay at Karooview Cottages, it was unfortunately just for one night! I highly recommend them to any traveller. They are very well equipped, with excellent interior and you can enjoy a nice and relaxing stay, in a tranquil environment with a breath-taking view! The heated pool and braai boma is also an added BONUS! I was also very impressed and would love to return for a longer stay with friends and family! The cottage is very affordable and truly GREAT value for money! Thank you team!

Thank you BoardingPass, so glad you enjoyed your stay. For those prepared to take the plunge, the hot tubs are stunning in winter. Get the temp right and lie in the hot water and look at the stars. So glad you enjoyed. Travel safely. Howard.

We hired Karoo Masterclass for a long weekend for a family stay. It was a great choice. The beds are very comfortabletand the linen and towels were good quality. The kitchen equipment was well thought out and had everything we needed. There is a lovely room with 4 leather recliners to chill and watch TV on a big screen. The weather was lovely and hot and there was a pool to refresh in. The outdoor furniture was great and we enjoyed a braai (barbecue) on the one evening. The location of the house is really good as it is in the town and close to all the coffee shops and restaurants. It is set well back from the road with a small olive grove between the road and the house so it is very quiet. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely be happy recommending this property.

We had a very nice stay. The landlord even offered us something to drink upon arrival and suggested that we drive his car to the restuarant. We were there with a truck. There were free braaiwood at the braai area. The swimmig pool were tempting but unfortunately there was not enough time.

We had a delightfully restful stay at Karoo View. Howard and his team couldn't have been more attentive in making our stay more enjoyable. Or accommodation was better than any we've had when staying in the Karoo previously and the air con was a welcome relief when the temperatures soared in the summer heat. Wonderful touches like the provision of cerals, milk and tea and coffee showed great thought for guests and we loved sitting in the hot tub looking up and admiring the stars. Great place and a great host. What more could you ask for?

We stayed at the Karoo Mountain View guest house. It's not often that your expectations are far surpassed by this was definitely the case. If Prince Albert is the gem of the Karoo, then Karoo Mountain View is the jewel in the crown. It is spacious, modern/trendy decor, very comfortable and very well appointed. Our only complaint was that we wish we stayed longer, but we'll definitely be back. You won't be disappointed!
