How to Choose Overnight Accommodation in Graaff-Reinet

Passing through Graaff-Reinet and looking for overnight accommodation? A haven of peace and quiet in a tranquil and historical atmosphere, Graaff-Reinet is the oldest town in the Eastern Cape and is filled to the brim with history, culture and outdoor fun and adventure.

With over 200 buildings in town that have National Monument status, natural attractions such as the Camdeboo National Park, Nqweba Dam, the Valley of Desolation and the Owl House, which features some of the most amazing sculptures made from glass and concrete – it’s no wonder why there are so many different types of accommodation to be found. But don’t let that confuse you. If you’re at a loss of where to start your search – here’s exactly what you should be looking for when choosing overnight accommodation in Graaff-Reinet.

Location, Security and Accessibility

When passing through any town and looking for overnight accommodation, location is everything and the last thing you want is to be stuck in an area that is far from restaurants, shops and delis, especially if you don’t know the area very well. Another consideration to keep in mind is security and safety. It’s no secret that the crime rate in South Africa has escalated and if you’re looking for peace of mind, then do make sure the overnight accommodation you choose can offer you excellent security with an alarm system and undercover parking.

Local Flavour and Amenities

Upmarket, stylish and comfortable – these are just some of the things you may be considering when choosing overnight accommodation. While many overnighters may prefer to stay in a big, fancy hotel, not everyone enjoys being awakened by other guests coming and going. There are many overnighters who prefer to stay in a family-owned bed &breakfast and experience local flavour. If you’re a family, businessman or couple looking this, then you’re in luck. In Graaff-Reinet, there are many self-catering suites and bed & breakfasts that can offer you privacy, comfort and luxury. In fact, you don’t need to stay in a hotel to get all the whistles and bells such, as top-quality linen and towels, a modern kitchen with top of the range appliances, DStv and Wi-Fi. You can get all this from many local self-catering guest houses in Graaff-Reinet.


Finally, before making your final choice, always read the online reviews. Nowadays, you can find just about anything online and if there is one way to learn the truth about a guest house, lodge or hotel, it’s getting it straight from someone who has stayed there.
