Wish we had been able to stay longer. I love the Karoo. We found the rooms very comfortable, the garden beautiful and serene, the welcome warm and the breakfast delicious and sumptuous.
My grandfather was the Manager of the Standard Bank in Graaff-Reinet and my Dad told me that he always wanted to stay at the Drosdty Hotel as a little boy, so we initially planned to stay there. However I didn't like the the over-the-top flashiness of the Drosdty from their website (think Trump Tower in the Karoo...) It was the right choice. We went there for a drink before dinner and were turned away! The parking guard told us that only registered guests were allowed into the hotel!
