We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay in a very spacious and comfortable room. We had a lovely dinner at the hotel accross the road which was in close walking distance. We will most certainly consider going back if ever we pass through Graaff Reinet again.

We only stayed one night on route to Gautend. The cottage we used was very spacious and will be great for a family of 6. There is more than enough space and the location is very central with easy access.

We had a lovely stay at Camdeboo cottages. There are little touches in the rooms that add to the experience. The kitchen was well-stocked and clean. The location in Graaff Reinet is good - walking distance to everything we needed. I would stay here again.

The rooms are dank and dismal with a healthy insect fauna. The refrigerator in-room was remarkably loud, to the degree that it will wake you up in the middle of the night. The staff are grim and unhelpful, and utterly dead to any pleas for assistance. Not recommended.

Cost was reasonable, but quality of the accomodation was below expectations. Door to room had a cracked panel allowing other guests to see into the room. Towels also threadbare. Evening meal was good value.

The location is tops. The pool area a bonus. But the room was average. No towels, we had to ask for towels, and the lady asked to first check the room to see if there weren't towels. The room was very noisy. Understandably as it is old, but a few mats in the passage might help to deaden the round...

We stayed here in the Cottage on the way to Kruger National Park from Cape Town. Great place to spend the night, and electric blankets were a blessing! Would defiantly stay here again. Think we were the only people staying here tho!

The service is excellent. We arrived at 21h00 and the lady at reception arranged dinner for my husband. We stayed in a self catering cottage. The rooms are spacious with electric blankets for the cold winter. We had a scrumptious breakfast. The pool and surroudings are beautiful. Will definitely come back.

It appears we were overcharged when paying in advance for our dinners i.e we paid R170 each where as the most expensive item on the menu provided in the rooms was R100 per person. This fact obviously spoilt our overall impressions of the establishment.
