Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 May 2016

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!

Room Tip: We had two rooms (a room with a double bed and a room with two single beds) and both were very nice.

We stayed in one of the Riverbend Cottages. This beautiful one bedroom apartment has it all: comfort, space, elegance and creativity. The bedding is perfect and all facilities and furnishings are both practical and attractive - inviting one to stay longer and cook a meal in the well equipped kitchen! Hillary and her staff are delightful people, making you feel welcome. We loved the location as it is quiet and peaceful. This was the fourth time we stayed in Graaff Reinet and by far our best, as well as best value for money! (We have already booked again!)

Room Tip: We loved the Riverbend cottage as it is modern, large and light. Other rooms are as excellent - mat...

We loved our stay at Cypress Cottages. Hilary was a wonderful hostess. The cottage was quiet, clean, neat and perfect for our overnight stay. The kids had a wonderful time and fell in love with the resident boxer, Ammo. A highly recommended venue - thank you!

We stayed in one of the brandnew River Bend Cottages which was perfect equipped, with modern furniture in spacious room. Own patio with braai, secure parking, free Wifi, we enjoyed everything. Absolute quiet part of town but yet nearby of lovely restaurants and cafes. Hillary and staff let us feel at home. We had a marvellous stay and would like to come back. This accommodation is highly recommended.

Recommended by a fellow traveller, Cypress Cottages offers an elegant stay in an attractive part of town. Situated amongst beautiful gardens and next to the main house, this Cottage was 4 star luxury and offered two en-suite bedrooms, a kitchen, lounge & dining room. Furnishings are extremely comfortable! A welcome pot of tea was offered on arrival and a pool available in the grounds for a swim. A delightful lady arrived next morning to prepare breakfast for us. We should have booked a two night stay giving time to explore this historical town!
