Place was well equiped, but can I suggest a coffee plunger. Would have loved to make some coffee for our flask for the long road back. The place was really lovely. Nice to wake up to the fresh farm feel.

Clean and comfortable. Charming decor and friendly people. Great for self catering or cruise to the ou kar Resturant for great food. Pool is super clean and a refreshing experience after a long drive.

We enjoyed our stop over.The accommodation was clean with cute decor. We also enjoyed the little restaurant in town - Die Ou Kar. We stayed in the small house which we had to ourselves. It was equipped with everything you need for self-catering.

The guesthouse was comfortable and the owner very attentive. Unfortunately town closes at 6 and you have no choice but to eat at the restaurant owned by the B&B owners. Food from their restaurant was terrible. Take your own food with.

Typical Karoo Farm style. Tranquil surroundings, very clean and comfortable. Stayed in the Farmer's Cottage, private and quiet. Good choice as halfway stop over between the Cape and Gauteng. Will stay again.

What you see is what you get. We stayed just the one night, excellant stop over for the money. It's a small farm with serveral animals. Little cottage rooms in a rural selling. Everything you need but very basic, clean comfy bed and pillows good shower and plenty of hot water and most important a quit peaceful nights sleep. That's...

We loved staying at the Karoo Pandok, and actually stopped again on our way back home! The accomodation has an authentic uniquenes to the decor, is clean and simply furnished. We relaxed here and loved the bonus visit from the friendly neighborhood dogs! Louis is a great host and also organised us dinner hassle free from his Bar and Restaurant...

I found Bethulie by accident whilst looking for the halfway stop traveling to the Eastern Cape. What I found is true value for money and a peaceful environment, I will surely stay there again on my next trip to the Eastern Cape! I can imagine this will also suffice as a breakaway from the busy city life!!

Comfortable and private room with all the basic amenities required for an overnight stay. Lovely to wake-up to the fresh morning air of the Karoo, ready to embrace the rest of your travels. Breakfast at the affiliated restaurant, Die Ou Kar, in town is also a welcome sight!
