Lovely clean accommodation...if only these walls could talk...Great outside seating area under the grape pergola. Lovely wineries and restaurants close by. In front of the station ticket office there are two railway man powered trolleys for your enjoyment...great fun to ride.

I would highly recommend the Ticket Office at Calitzdorp Station to anyone visiting, or simply passing through, the quaint little town. The accommodation itself is sparkling clean, with the greater station very well maintained as well. Beds/linen are also top notch, promising a good night's rest when needed. The kitchen is well-stocked with decent utensils to facilitate self-catering, with the repurposed buildings adding to the unique experience/feel. The shared ablution facilities might be an issue for those who are fanatical about privacy in that particular regard, but the said facilities were clean and also well-maintained (with the proximity to the Ticket Office being neither a hindrance nor inconvenience). Even though the road noise may be an issue for guests staying in the tented units, whom are possibly looking for tranquility associated with camping outside of populated areas, it was not a problem in the self-catering Ticket Office at all. Cheryl was also one rockstar of a hostess, with an amicable guest-relationship and knowledge of the area readily available. I would also strongly suggest swinging by the cash bar if possible, adding that extra bit of zest to the trip.

We stayed for one night is one of the tents. The tent was super clean and we appreciated the extra mosquito cream the owner gave us. Our highlight was walking around the campsite admiring the owls and the old train station. What we did not enjoy too much was the music and road noise during the night time.

I stayed at the Station to be within easy access to the Klein Karoo and the passes. I was surprised that the original still feels original although interiors have been updated, safari tents added and camping areas provided for with water, electricity and background lights. The ablutions are spotless and Cheryl an amazing host who goes the whole yard to make you comfortable and welcome. The bar in the main shed has been tastefully and artfully done where locals and guests can meet. I was there for quite a while and felt that the longer i stayed the better it was despite the drought in the area. I camped in my own tent, stayed in the ticket office as well and would always stay there should i have the opportunity again.

I like camping, and I was hoping that this would be something quaint and unusual. We stayed in the safari tents and the hostess was excellent - she went out of her way to try and make us comfortable. Unfortunately, the place comes across as a somewhat random collection of accommodation in an unfavorable location which unfortunately also suffers from a fair amount of road noise at night.
