The Affordable Graaff-Reinet Guest House for You

Finding affordable accommodation of a high standard in Graaff-Reinet can be a challenge. Locating that perfect place that meets all your expectations may require extensive research and, in the end, still leave you with a sense of apprehension.

Decisions, Decisions

When trying to decide on a place to stay in Graaff-Reinet, whether overnight or a 2-week break, keep the following aspects in mind:

  • Pricing usually is the first and most important consideration when looking for a place to stay. Many guest houses in South Africa call themselves affordable, but what does this really mean? In some cases, it means a room in someone’s house with creaky floors, where you have to share everything – including the bathroom – with the owner and the other guests. Some people love the experience of being part of a household, but others fail to see the charm of an experience that is more akin to a backpacking youth hostel than a guest house. Ask yourself whether a bad night’s sleep is worth that “affordable” price tag?


  • Location is an often-overlooked aspect. If you are in a hurry to get to your destination, you will probably be limited to a guest house en route. It can be very refreshing to stay over in smaller towns and experience countryside living. In this way, you contribute to the tourism industries and economies of our smaller towns. A cheap place in a noisy area of doubtful repute might cost you more in the end.


  • The quality of the establishment. The quality of the amenities can make or break a guest house. Things like mattresses, linen, and towels play an important role in your overall comfort. On hot summer days, air-conditioning is a must. If you are a sports fan, you would like your guest house to offer DStv. Decide what is important when it comes to your stay and eliminate those places that do not meet your expectations.


  • The little extras. When booking your stay, make sure you are aware of what is included and what you will have to pay extra for. To this end, we offer safe, off-street parking, Wi-Fi, laundry service, breakfast, coffee and tea in rooms, irons and ironing boards, and hairdryers.
