5 Things to Expect When you Stay at Our Guesthouse in Graaff-Reinet

Nestled in the shadow of the Sneeuberg mountain range, right in the heart of the world-renowned Karoo, is a town that most people who visit never again forget: Graaff-Reinet. As the fourth oldest town in South Africa, Graaff-Reinet has a rich history and attracts tourists from all over the county and the world. If you find yourself making your way through the Eastern Cape and wish to experience the charm this location has to offer, be sure to book a stay with our guesthouse. Here are five things you can expect when booking your blissful escape with our fantastic accommodation.

  1. The Warmest Welcome

As the name suggests, KarooRus is a place for guests to enjoy rest and relaxation surrounded by the natural beauty of the Karoo. The Sundays River, nearby Camdeboo National Park, and views of the local mountain range mean that outsiders passing through are treated to sightings of a variety of animals, plants, and birds. This is possibly why Graaff-Reinet has been affectionately dubbed the “gem of the Karoo”. Our guesthouse itself is a restored home with tons of character to it, carefully remodelled to include seven self-catering units, beautifully furnished for cosy living. We welcome each guest that pays us a visit with the greatest hospitality and take care to ensure all their needs are met.

  • Stylish Living Facilities

We pride ourselves on being a home away from home from our guests from all walks of life. Luxurious bedding and linen, quaint kitchenettes, and spotless en-suite bathrooms mean that you can kick back and relax in comfort while we make sure your stay at our guesthouse is fabulous.

  • Self-catering and Dine-out Options

For guests who enjoy making their own meals, the kitchenettes in our guesthouse are fully equipped with all required appliances such as a microwave, stove, toaster, kettle, and fridge, as well as utensils. We have on-site braai facilities for guests who want to try some authentic Karoo lamb chops, and several top restaurants in the town of Graaff-Reinet offer a variety of tasty flavour fusions.

  • A Town Drenched in History

As the oldest town in the Eastern Cape, tourists are delighted to find that over 200 buildings are claimed as National Monuments in the area. There is even an entire street restored to its original 19th-century presence, to give residents and visitors a feel of what the history of the town was really like. A visit to the famed Reinet House, an old residency museum, offers exciting insights into the past, and also features one of the largest living grapevines in the world in its very own garden.

  • Plenty to See and Do

Enjoy a game drive at the Camdeboo National Park, visit the John Rupert Theatre, or journey to the tiny church village of Nieu-Bethesda – you will never run out of things to do here. It’s also a great place for photography boffins who enjoy documenting vast landscapes and natural wonders
