The last 60km was on dirt road which was slow but manageable even in our smallish car although it might have been more challenging in...

Bernie's RedAle was good rand thin crust Pizzas is worth the wait. They do take debit and credit cards. Did not stay over. Only had lunch that was good fresh homely pizza. When in Rhodes remember to bring cash as the rest do not have card facilities.

We spend a night here on our way to Lesotho. We fell in love with Rhodes as a whole and the Walkerbouts Inn was a lovely place to rest a weary head.

Dear Ferdie, I read your comments with interest and duly conducted a thorough investigation in this regard.

After a 60km gravel road drive from Barkley East, Walkerbouts in Rhodes was a welcome inn for two nights. Excellent meals, warm, comfortable beds and friendly people full of ideas for how to pass the time. Best known for flyfishing but not shy of alternatives. We'll be back!

We were working up at Tiffindell Ski Resort when we decide to visited this place twice for drinks and was made to feel very welcome by the staff and locals. Pity we didnt stay for meals as i hear they make the best pizzas. So maybe next time.
