Overnight Accommodation in Graaff-Reinet

Perfect Overnight Accommodation in Picturesque Graaff-Reinet

When you only want overnight accommodation during your travels, whether for business or holiday, it implies that you are en route from one place to another. You may also be in a hurry to reach your next or final destination, but you probably recognise the necessity of stopping for overnight accommodation on a lengthy trip.

A Pleasant Town with Pleasing Accommodation

You want a pleasant town, with a pleasing establishment that offers overnight accommodation where you can stop, rest, relax, wash up, and have a peaceful night of undisturbed sleep, before you resume your journey.

When travelling between coastal towns like Mossel Bay, Plettenberg Bay, Knysna, and George (to and from northern destinations), you may take the N12 route that leads to Beaufort West, or get onto the N9 and travel via the pleasant, picturesque town of Graaff-Reinet. This town is the home of our exceptional, self-catering guest house, KarooRus, that offers both overnight accommodation and accommodation for longer periods of time.

Vitally Important Overnight Rest

As scientific research has proven repeatedly, it is imperative for your safety and that of other road users that you make regular stops to take a break, stretch your legs, and regain your alertness and sanity when travelling long distances. The same applies to an overnight break and relevant accommodation where you can get a decent night’s unbroken sleep.

Additionally, while you are resting up, it is important to have the assurance that your vehicle is safely parked in a secure area, without having to unpack and subsequently reload everything that you are transporting with you. Otherwise, constantly worrying about the security of your possessions would destroy any chances you have of getting the rest that your body and mind so desperately crave.

Once Upon a Time

Once upon a time, but still in living memory, South Africa’s fourth oldest town, Graaff-Reinet, primarily served the local agricultural community and church goers of the southern Karoo section of the Eastern Cape Province. Many South African settlements, which became towns, owe part of their existence to the establishment of one or more churches.

In addition to being a quaint town, with many churches and more than 200 historically significant buildings that enjoy national monument status today, Graaff-Reinet is also an obvious and preferred stopover point that offered overnight accommodation.

Nowadays, Graaff-Reinet is a worthy holiday and tourist destination in its own right, whilst still being a popular town that continues to offer exemplary overnight accommodation for those who are just passing through. It is worth mentioning that many are so impressed with Graaff-Reinet, that they often return to stay over for longer to enjoy a typical slice of friendly, hospitable Karoo lifestyle, and the multitude of attractions in and around Graaff-Reinet.

Guest Houses in Graaff-Reinet South Africa

A Warm South African Welcome from a Graaff-Reinet Guest House

Of all the charming places in South Africa, you can expect to find real, true, and sincere hospitality at one of the finest guest houses in this country’s fourth oldest town – Graaff-Reinet. Graaff-Reinet is a quaint and picturesque town in the Eastern Cape province, where visitors and guests are warmly welcomed, and made to feel right at home, when travelling for business or leisure.

A Place of Sanctuary and Rest

This is where you will find our guest house, KarooRus, in the centre of Graaff-Reinet, in Middel Street, to be precise. KarooRus is a place where you can find sanctuary and rest in the relatively arid to semi-arid southern Karoo region of the Eastern Cape.

The Karoo is an extensive area, which is known for its unique, vast, seemingly endless, and sparsely inhabited landscapes, as well as its Karoobossies, which are shrub-like Karoo bushes with names that go back to the region’s past inhabitants – the ancient Khoikhoi. At KarooRus, we have named our seven luxurious self-catering rooms by utilising names inspired by Karoo vegetation and regions, such as Hantam, Kambro, Nama, Spekboom, Granaatbos, Noorsdoring, and Ngunibos.

Fabulously Famous Karoo Lamb

Some of the Karoo’s other principle claims to fame include mohair, ostrich and sheep farming, and best of all, Karoo lamb, deliciously prepared and served, as only South Africans know how to.

Succulent Karoo lamb dishes are prominent on the menus of several of the fine restaurants that can be found in Graaff-Reinet’s selection of excellent eateries, most of which are within convenient walking distances from our KarooRus guest house. Our guests, who may not want to self-cater all their meals, or those who only want comfortable, clean overnight accommodation and dinner, are delighted with Graaff-Reinet’s dining options and warm hospitality, with or without the inclusion of Karoo lamb.

Our helpful and honest housekeeping personnel take care of the neatness and cleanliness of your accommodation during your stay with us. This allows you more time to enjoy the attractions of our region, in carefree comfort.

On the outskirts of Graaff-Reinet, you will find the Camdeboo National Park and the Valley of Desolation, with its 120m-tall dolerite formations and columns that majestically and mysteriously overlook the park and its plains. A host of activities are on offer within the Camdeboo National Park.
