Beautiful premises and will gladly stay there again. Its location for Vryheid is perfect and central yet quiet and hidden. Ample safe parking and very friendly staff. The breakfast was also a lovely meal, freshly made and very well presented with more than adequate amounts to eat. Thank-you

The room is lovely - neat, tidy and with everything one could need, including some sports channels on dstv. The bathroom is spacious. We really hope the area gets rain soon, as the water shortage is terrible but the guesthouse still manages to keep the grounds looking good. I loved the jasmine growing along the path to the rooms.

I booked this 2 members of our company in this drought area so water is a problem. Villa Beryl does have a borehole which is essential. I booked the rooms and dinner for the 2 guests and they thoroughly enjoyed - according them - 5 stars Thank you Villa Beryl

Very comfortable and conveniently situated for business in Vryheid. With their own borehole water is constantly available, an absolute must in the drought affected town. I would definitely stay there again.

A beautiful old house, restored and decorated stylishly and comfortably. We were greeted by the lovely manager, Ayanda, who showed us to our huge room. Clean, with crisp sheets and a sparkling bathroom and an honesty bar, it was the perfect place to relax after a long day's driving. Breakfast was delicious, with really friendly and sweet staff.

The warm welcome and complimentary sherry were much appreciated as the cold front hit. Also the fact that the rooms were already warmed for us. Beds were really comfortable with excellent linen and pillows. Safe, secure, out of sight parking allowed us to get a great night's sleep.

I absolutely loved this place! After being on the road for over a week and staying at five different places, number 6, Villa Berryl, was definitely a great way to end the travel week.
