We stayed overnight on the way up to the Northern Cape. The rooms were very well appointed, beds very comfortable and warm as toast. Dawn the host was most accommodating and did everything to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Breakfast was great

Although just an overnight stop on our northern Cape trip, it was enough to want me to return again and again. And we shall!

We were welcomed by Dawn personally and showed to our "room" for the night. This turned out to be an extremely well appointed 1 bedroom flatlet. The bedroom has a small table for 2, a couple of lounge chairs to relax in, a large bathroom with great shower, as well as the kitchenette. Parking is extremely safe and on the premises. The gardens are lovely too. The accom was very clean and well appointed for self catering if you wish although there are some very good eateries in town only a kilometre or 2 from the house that can be highly recommended.

Breakfast is great and there is both the continental choices as well as a great full English should you have room for it. All in all we were spoilt by Dawn and her staff.

A wonderful overnight stay and we hope to see Dawn again in the not too distant future as we explore this area in more detail, especially the flower season.

Thanks very much Dawn for making us feel so at home and welcome.

What a fantastic stay, breakfast was very good, owners helpful. Our room was clean as a pin with very comfortable beads, the pillows may be a bit hard for some. Find it best value for your money and a very practical stopover between Cape Town and upington region, if you can ,make this part of your journey ,we were very happy we did.

Outclasses all other accommodation in Calvinia for cleanliness, comfort and friendly people Set in a peaceful garden just right after a long road journey. Dawn and her son are excellent hosts and we felt so welcome - nothing was too much trouble. The rondaval equipped with indoor braai, dining area and TV is an additional feature to the self catering facilities in each room. This time we stayed in #1 and #2 in the main house and recommend these rooms as there is a pleasant stoep in front to sit and unwind. Although the flatlets are an equally good alternative. Breakfast was delicious and beautifully served.

Room tip: #1 and #2 in the main house have a lovely veranda in front

We stayed one night and it was exceptional. Dawn was very welcoming and right away recommended a place for dinner and made a reservation for us. Our room had a separate kitchenette, a large bathroom and a sitting area as well as private patio. Breakfast was cooked to order. The entire property is gated so feels very safe.
