We make The Barracks our regular stopover every time we go to our holiday home near George and this is where we start relaxing. The service offered by Mike and Annalie is superb and the rooms are always clean and the food excellent. The fact that our two Old English Sheepdogs are also welcome makes it extra special.

Spent a gorgeous night in this charming town and lovely guesthouse.Fabulous Karoo lamb chops served for dinner, also with a splendid restaurant. A warm host helped to settle us in with generosity and kindness.

The Barracks is comfortable and hospitable. Located in central Colesberg within an easy walk of several restaurants. Reasonably-priced with attentive and friendly hosts. Rooms are comfortable. Well-stocked honesty bar. Parking is secure but tight. A good option for an overnight stay.

Perfect stopover between CT & JHB, extremely hospitable and welcoming. The buildings carry a great deal of history making it a unique experience. Enjoyed the ‘’honesty bar’’ concept, will definitely stay here again.

This is our fourth time staying at The Barracks. We were warmly greeted on arrival, which was just what we needed after driving 4 hours in heavy rain. As usual our room was clean and welcoming and our dogs just love the freedom of having their own secure courtyard. Dinner was delicious Karoo country fare and after a good night's...

The friendly conversation did it for me. After 8+ hours of driving from JHB, it was so pleasant to find a gregarious couple who wanted to chat, who attended to our needs, who provided a brilliant Karoo-lamb dinner, and who helped us to leave early the next morning. The accommodation is comfortable, spacious, clean- just what we needed. Many thanks,...
