Great Karoo Gem

Review of Old House Lodge
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 05 Nov 2020
Old House Lodge is the perfect place to put your feet up after a long drive through the Great Karoo. The staff are friendly, welcoming, respectful and professional. You are put as ease as you are guided to your room, which is neatly and thoughtfully prepared for your arrival. The rooms combine old-fashioned charm with modern elegance. There is WiFi access throughout the Lodge, and each room has a private en suite bathroom, double-volume ceilings, wooden floors, satin drapes, air conditioning, a mini-fridge, tea & coffee station and a TV. The beds are clean and comfortable, and the shower pressure is glorious. Since the Lodge is situated along the main road, there may be some traffic noise disturbances which could affect the light sleeper; however, earplugs are provided on request. Old House Lodge’s homemade meals are restaurant quality. We highly recommend the Karoo lamb shank for dinner and malva pudding & custard for dessert! The Lodge is air-conditioned throughout, but should you prefer to dine outdoors, there is a peaceful garden with a water feature and a resident duck. Smoking is permitted outside, and there is secure off-street parking which is accessible from inside the Lodge. With so many wonderful qualities, Old House Lodge is the ideal stopover for the weary cross-country traveller.

Fantastic place. We stayed over for 1 night on our way from Johannesburg to Cape Town. My husband and I couldn't get over how friendly the staff were and generally the people in Beaufort West! Lovely decorated room with fragrant lavender in a vase, very comfy bed with wonderfully cozy bedding. Room and en-suite bathroom were impeccably clean... We didn't get to enjoy the meals this time around, but the breakfast sure did smell good when we were checking out. Such good value for money!

I can highly recommend old house lodge. Beautiful accommodation, welcoming host with complimentary welcome drinks, with the bighest sweetest strawberries. The rooms were stunning, beds comfortable what more could you ask for after a long drive from Durban to west coast

This was our second time staying at this guesthouse. I mentioned that we have a two year old and the camping cot was ready in our room when we arrived. I also asked for a quiet room when I booked and we got a room at the back of the house. Very friendly and helpful service! Clean and neat!

Incredible hospitality. Friendly and helpful staff. Couldn't have asked for more from our stay!
Value for money and walking distance from the center of town. It was the perfect spot to stay and would book again if I am ever passing through.
